If you are like most Credit Unions, your staff routinely enters all of your members’ credit card advances and payments into your core system—and then again into the processor’s website. Most likely, your staff finds this process tiresome and in need of improvement.

Let Sharetec come to your rescue with Credit Card Sweep, a product that “clears the way” for improvement by putting an end to this repetitive process. Credit Card Sweep enables employees to simply enter a credit card advance or a payment like any other transaction—allowing them to be processed over the counter with ease in a single transaction. And at the end of the day, the Sharetec system “tidies up” the process by forwarding all of your credit card transactions in the form of an aggregated payment file to your vendor/processor. Clearly, this “sweeping” improvement has the potential to reduce errors while saving your staff valuable time to devote to other important tasks.

RainyDay

We all realize how difficult it can be to commit to a regimented savings plan. Yet Sharetec’s Save the Change account feature provides an easy way for your Credit Union members to accumulate a modest savings—even those members who find it challenging to save money on a regular basis.

The premise behind Save the Change is simple: your members’ debit card transactions are rounded up to the nearest dollar and the difference is securely deposited into a designated savings account. Members can opt to have funds deposited into their own savings account or into another member's account, such as a child or grandchild. Eligibility only requires the member to have a checking account, a debit card set up to make purchases, and a savings account.

Sharetec’s Save the Change feature is popular with members as it helps them build their savings effortlessly and incrementally, without having to make larger, lump-sum deposits. Plus, most members claim that they don’t even miss the extra change, so saving money becomes less painful as they save for that rainy day.

Are overdrafts causing your Credit Union members unnecessary and preventable costs and embarrassment? Why not offer them the protection and defense they need from the dreaded overdraft with Sharetec’s Courtesy Pay.

Sharetec’s Courtesy Pay service offers members either Flat Rate or Tiered Rate protection, depending on which features best suit their needs. With Flat Rate Courtesy Pay, your member’s overdrafts will be covered up to an approved limit, with a flat fee assessed per transaction. The Credit Union pays the member’s check instead of returning it due to insufficient funds, which saves the member both merchant charges and your Credit Union’s insufficient funds fee. This option also saves your members the embarrassment that unintentional overdrawn checks can cause, while helping to safeguard their credit rating.

Unlike its flat rate predecessor, Tiered Rate Courtesy Pay offers a “tiered” approach that provides Credit Unions with more flexibility in assisting their members with overdrafts. It allows for a granular, risk-based fee structure by which members may initially receive free or discounted overdrafts, with a gradual increase in fees as their usage of the service grows. Therefore, members who incur frequent overdrafts and pose a higher risk will pay a higher fee than those members who encounter the occasional overdraft. Many Credit Unions have reported a substantial increase in their monthly income with the Tiered Rate Courtesy Pay structure. And another benefit is that a substantial percentage of your members will actually pay lower fees, helping them to save money in the long run.
