You are probably accustomed to using Online Banking to check your account balances and view recent transactions, but did you know you could do more? Technology has offered, and continues to offer, consumers different options to help them manage their money easier and more efficiently. South State offers different tools that give you the ability to stay on top of your finances in real time, manage your funds in one place and understand how you are spending your money.

To help you get started, we’ve outlined our top five online tools that can help you better manage your money.

1. eStatements
Tired of mail clutter? Want a better way to manage your monthly financial statements? If you are enrolled in Online Banking, you have the opportunity to sign up for eStatements. Electronic statements (eStatements) are a fast and convenient way to receive your monthly bank statements. They’re just like the paper statements you receive in the mail, but can be accessed securely through Online Banking. Learn how to enroll here.

2. Mobile App
Mobile Banking can help make your active life a little easier. Our mobile and tablet apps make your favorite features in Online Banking available from your mobile device to help you manage your money anytime, anywhere. You’ll have access to pay bills, send money through Popmoney, find a local South State branch, and view recent transaction history.

4. Alerts
Alerts help you stay on top of activity within your accounts. After you set up Alerts within Online Banking, we’ll notify you via text or email about activities and reminders for your checking and savings accounts. For example, you can sign up to have a low balance alert sent to you when your checking account goes below a certain balance.

5. Spending Report
To help with your budgeting goals, our Spending Report within Online Banking tracks where your money is going each month. Your monthly spending is displayed in a colorful chart on the Main Summary Page and can be viewed anytime you are logged in to Online Banking. Your spending is automatically categorized for you; however, you have the option to change categories at any time. View more information about our Spending Report feature here.
