Online banking 

To access your online banking via desktop or laptop, visit winsouthcu.com and click the online banking tab in the right-hand corner. Please do not use a previous URL that you've saved as a bookmark to sign in as you may receive a page not found error. 

First-time logging in for existing digital banking users

  • Username: Your current online banking username is preloaded into the online banking database and you will use it to log in to the new digital banking platform for the first time. If your current username contains a space, 
  • Any username that had a space, an ampersand (&), a percent sign (%), or a hashtag (#) will need to replace it with the underscore ( _ ) when signing in. 
  • Password: Your initial password structure will be the last 6 digits of your SSN + MMDD of your date of birth. (Example: If your SSN is 123-45-6789 and your DOB is 01/01/1985; your initial password will be 4567890101.)
  • Some users will be prompted to create a new username if their current one contains characters that are not supported in the new platform.
  • Setting a new password: After you have entered the initial password, you will need to create a new password for your digital banking account.
  • As an enhanced security feature, Multi-Factor Authentication will be used with the new digital banking platform. You will be prompted to use either your email address or cell phone number to verify your device. The system will pull the phone number and email address that you have in our system. Please make sure this information is updated prior to the conversion. If the information listed is incorrect please contact a WinSouth representative.

Will my previous transaction history transfer over?

Will my current internal auto transfers be moved to the new Digital Banking experience?
Yes, all existing auto transfers you had set up in the previous Digital Banking platform will be loaded in your new Digital Banking experience. However, to edit existing transfers, you’ll need to contact a WinSouth representative. Any new scheduled transfers can be scheduled in the new digital banking.

Will my current external transfers be moved to the new Digital Banking experience?
Members who had External Transfers enabled prior to the conversion will need to set these up again.

Will my current Bill Pay payees transfer to the new Digital Banking experience?
Yes, all bill Pay payees you had set-up in the previous Digital Banking platform will be loaded in your new Digital Banking experience.

Who can I pay using Bill Pay?
You can send payments to any individual or business in the United States—including large companies and small companies, as well as individuals such as childcare providers or family members. Bill Pay sends payments electronically whenever possible. If the recipient cannot receive electronic payments, a check will be printed and sent from the bill pay system to the payee address you provided during the payee setup process.

What bills can I not pay with Bill Pay?
You cannot use Bill Pay to pay any company or individual with an address outside the United States or its territories.

Are my payments guaranteed?
We guarantee that your payments are protected and will be sent on time, every time. If we fail to process an adequately scheduled bill payment following your instructions, we will reimburse any late charges assessed by the biller.

What should I do if I am a current QuickBooks user?
With the upgrade to the new Digital Banking experience, some QuickBooks users will be required to make changes to their QuickBooks software. Please review the important instructions listed in the QuickBooks tab to ensure a smooth transition.

Intuit aggregation services will be interrupted for up to 5 business days, post Go LIVE. We have submitted the initial updates; however, this project will NOT support aggregation services post conversion. Any questions/issues should be address within the post conversion channel.

The current Bill Pay platform will be unavailable beginning at 4:00 P.M. CT on Tuesday, February 6th. The updated version of the platform will be available on Wednesday, February 7th. Scheduled payments that are due during this downtime will continue to process. Once the new system goes live, your scheduled payments, previous payees, and history will transfer over.

If your screen is blank when you click the bill pay tab in online banking, you may need to reconfigure your web browser settings. Please walk through the browser settings linked below. This will ensure your browser is fully compatible with bill pay. After you complete the settings, please open a new browser and access online banking without using a favorites link or bookmark. If the settings do not resolve the issue, please contact us back for further assistance.
