Business Online Banking

Business Online Banking is your 24/7 virtual business partner. Use it to get quick and easy access to your business information – so you can reconcile your business checking account, pay your bills and more!

Bellco offers two types of Online Banking services. Business Online Banking and Business Online Plus.

Online Banking Account Services

Administration

Bellco's Business Online will allow you, the "super administrator", to create additional users with access levels and permissions assigned by you. For example, you may want to give your accountant access to download your business account history; however, you may also want to limit your accountant from having the ability to transfer funds and view personal account information.

The Administration menu provides access to high-level system functions.
The options available on the Administration menu include:

  • User Administration – Create a "permissions profile" for each user along with a unique ID and secure password. Also, you will have access to set permissions for access to accounts and specific services for each user.

  • Activity Reporting – Define reporting criteria and select information from available transaction logs for reporting purposes or download the information for use in another application.

  • Balance Alerts – Specify alert conditions with unique criteria for individual accounts and the system will send an email message to you when an account reaches those criteria.

  • Account Maintenance – Assign a more descriptive name to any of the available accounts.

  • Change Password – Change company and user passwords at any time. (Only authorized administrators may change the company password.)
