Examines how Internet or electronic banking is slowly but surely reviving itself after numerous attempts by various financial institutions and financial intermediaries in the 1970 and 1980s. The standardization in technologies and the public's familiarity with the use of personal computers and the Internet have made the Internet bank or Internet banking site easier, cheaper and more cost effective than ever before. This paper discusses the coming of age of Internet banking, the opportunity for Internet banking and some of the obstacles and procedures that must be followed in order to develop a sound Internet banking presence.

From the Paper:

"Mark Leary is looking at his watch. It is 10:30 p.m. and he has a list of chores to complete by tonight. He is leaving on a 3-day business trip in the morning and will not have the time to take care of some financial details. He has put off balancing his checkbook for over 2 months and needs to find out how much money he has in the checking account. Mark also wants to do a stock analysis of his current portfolio and ask his broker some questions about a new stock he read about earlier in the week. He has to send his son in college some money since he always seems to run out. Mark also promised his wife that he would order some new checks and get her a debit card since she does not like the inconvenience of having just an ATM card. Finally, yet importantly, he would like to check out information on Keogh's for his wife's business. How is he going to actually accomplish any of these tasks at this hour of the night? The answer is in the next revolution to hit the banking industry. Mark will log onto his banks website via his Internet service provider (ISP) and work away. The bank site allows him to download his statements directly onto his home budgeting software like Microsoft's Money or Intuit's Quicken and reconcile quickly and efficiently. In a matter of minutes, he knows his exact balance, what is outstanding and what items have come through. He will use the link that connects with the banks investment advisor who handles his portfolio and email questions about the stock he read about, he will ask another department about a Keogh for his wife's new business. He will transfer money through electronic funds transfer (EFT) from his account to his sons account across the country and it will be there by morning. He will order the checks his wife wants on the check selection link and order a debit card with a single click of a button since his information is already stored in the bank database."
