Using Third Party Services with Hingham
There are many third-party payment apps that our customers use with their Hingham accounts to send and receive money digitally. Some allow you to send money domestically, others allow you to send money overseas. Our architecture is open and although we don't recommend any particular services, there are some that are particularly popular among our staff and customers. Hingham Institution for Savings specifically disclaims responsibility for your experience using any of these services (see fine print below).
In most cases, you will set up these services using your Hingham account number and routing number. In the background, these services will use something called the Automated Clearing House network (or ACH) to integrate with our systems and gather information or transfer funds. Some services will verify your ownership of the account using microdeposits.
Commonly Used Services
Venmo - Venmo is the leading person-to-person (P2P) mobile payment app and many of us at Hingham use it personally.
