|ING Direct Person2Person, which comes free with a checking account, transfers money from your account to anyone else’s. It sends the recipient an e-mail with a link to a secure page on ING. They’ll then need to enter their bank account number, which can seem a little scary, but remember checks? Whenever you give someone one of those, you’re also giving them your account number. Check out the demo for more info.|
|Amazon Payments allows you to attach a bank account to your Amazon Payments login and, like with PayPal, you can send funds to someone at their e-mail address or phone number. The recipient must create an Amazon Payments account. There’s no charge for the service.|
|Serve is a new offering from American Express and is very similar to Amazon Payments. Link your bank account to Serve, and easily send and receive money using a web browser or smartphone app. The payments occur instantly, and you can send to someone at their e-mail address.|
