    Make a Global Transfer

    1. If not, you can update the information on atbonline.com, or call the number on the screen
  4. Select the Recipient you wish to send money to from the drop-down menu
    1. If desired, you can change the recipient’s information by tapping Global Transfer Recipients in the Settings menu found by tapping the gear icon in the upper left of the Accounts screen
    2. Skip to step 6
  5. If you need to add a recipient:
    1. Tap the + (plus sign) icon in the upper right of the Select Recipient screen; alternatively, tap Global Transfer Recipients in the Settings menu found by tapping the gear icon in the upper left of the Accounts screen
