The Bankers Bank has selected First Data as its preferred internet banking partner. The Bankers Bank is based in Oklahoma with offices in Texas. Owned by its 97 member community banks, The Bankers Bank serves community banks throughout the Midwest.

Through the five-year internet banking agreement, The Bankers Bank’s community banks will be able to offer their customers First Data’s consumer and business internet banking services. The consumer-focused services include eStatements, bill pay, electronic bill presentment and a Spanish-language customer interface.

The system also offers online personal financial management capabilities, and users can download financial information into commonly-used financial management tools, said First Data.

Businesses can originate automated clearing house (ACH) and wire transactions, use positive pay to verify the authenticity of checks and designate different levels of account access.

The Bankers Bank also uses First Data’s debit processing services and is a member of First Data’s STAR Network.

Troy Appling, senior vice president of The Bankers Bank, said: “The Bankers Bank strives to offer our community bank customers the best products and the highest quality of service. First Data’s debit processing, STAR Network and now internet banking allow us offer services that help our community bank customers get and stay competitive.”
