Mercury is engineered to make sure you don’t lose sleep thinking about banking. We’re constantly innovating and iterating our product because we believe that your banking tasks should feel simpler, more intuitive, and maybe even a little enjoyable.
Lately, we’ve been thinking a lot about how to make it easier for you to get paid — keep reading to see a few of the ways we came up with.
Whether you’re invoicing a client or routing startup funding to your Mercury account, you can now send your contacts a secure request to pay you, delivered straight to their email. Here’s how we designed this feature:
Click here to make your first Payment Request.
Expecting a big windfall? We’ve streamlined the process for requesting an increase on your check deposit limit — now when we detect a deposit request that is beyond your limit, our flow will prompt you with a few additional questions to help us review your request. Once approved, you'll be able to deposit that check.
Keeping track of money movements just got simpler with the Outgoing and Recipients tabs we added to the Payments page. In Outgoing, you’ll find send-money and transfer requests that require approval from admin users, as well as scheduled or recurring payments. In Recipients, every recipient row will show you a link to their transactions, a summary of their details, and an option to send them money.
Admin users can now modify the checking account associated with an upcoming scheduled payment. To edit the account, navigate to the Outgoing tab in your Payments page, select the payment in question, and click on the checking account name.
Did you know you can favorite your cards in the Mercury iOS app? Just pull up one of your virtual or physical cards and tap the star in the upper right corner. We've also added some capabilities to the iOS Security page — review and manage sessions, linked accounts, logged-in devices, and biometric devices. Plus, you’ll be able to see the last 30 days of account activity.
Set up push notifications to be notified about ongoing transactions, balance alerts, and more. To do this, log in to your account and go to Notifications to choose what alerts you’d like to see. Another update: you can now issue virtual debit cards to yourself, right from the Mercury Android app.
