Abstract

Systems and methods for banking transactions use a kiosk to perform financial services. The kiosk dispenses a stored-value card. The kiosk determines a stored-value account related to a stored-value card for a user. The kiosk then receives user instructions for a banking transaction using the stored-value account. The kiosk then processes the user instructions to perform the banking transaction using the stored-value account.

Description

    CROSS-REFERENCE TO RELATED APPLICATIONS
  • [0001]
    This application claims the benefit of U.S. Provisional Application Ser. No. 60/512,290 titled “Systems and Methods for Money Sharing,” filed Oct. 17, 2003, which is hereby incorporated by reference.
  • BACKGROUND
  • [0002]
    1. Field of the Invention
  • [0003]
    The present invention relates generally to financial services, and more particularly to systems and methods for banking transactions using a stored-value card.
  • [0004]
    2. Description of the Prior Art
  • [0005]
    Customers use automatic teller machines (ATMs) to conduct banking transactions such as deposits, withdrawals, balance inquiries, and transfers between traditional bank accounts. ATMs require ATM/debit cards and PIN numbers assigned to the related ATM/debit card. One problem with ATM/debit cards is that a bank customer must physically go to a branch of a bank to setup a traditional bank account because ATM/debit cards have a bank account, such as a demand deposit account (DDA), associated with it. The bank typically checks the customer's identity based on their driver's license or other documentation and collects personal information such as address, date of birth, and social security number. Banks need to verify identification to prevent fraud and/or improve security for the customer's banking transactions. Furthermore, there may be government regulations that require proof of identity before using bank accounts to prevent illegal activities such as money laundering and funding of terrorist activities.
  • [0006]
    Another problem is that the funds deposited into an ATM machine are not immediately available for withdrawal. For example, if a customer deposits cash or a check in a deposit envelope, the deposited amount is not immediately available until a bank employee services the ATM machine to collect and process the deposits.
  • [0007]
    Customers have also used credit cards for banking transactions as well. One problem with credit cards is that a person usually needs to have good credit to have a credit line issued for a credit card. Also, another problem is that credit cards can take weeks to issue from a bank. After submitting a credit card application, the credit card is then mailed to the person's address.
  • [0008]
    Another problem relates to a large population of US residents (by some estimates as much as 50 million) that are poorly served by the banking system—the “under-banked” or the “unbanked”. This population is generally excluded from traditional banking products (checking accounts, credit cards, debit cards) or moves in and out of eligibility for them—as banks offering them generally require good credit and/or unreasonably large security deposits in order to obtain these services. People may be excluded for any number of reasons such as having unfortunate circumstances like a divorce or serious medical problem adversely impact their credit standing, or such as making mistakes with their credit coming out of college leading to poor credit or a bankruptcy, or such as having no established credit history because they are a recent immigrant or someone who chooses to conduct their financial affairs primarily with cash. The reason banks generally exclude these groups of people from their service offerings is the cost and risk associated with the products, particularly credit cards and checking accounts. Therefore, these people may be excluded from certain financial transactions that require credit cards or debit cards. In one example, a person without a credit card cannot make purchases over the Internet, buy products from a catalogue, reserve a hotel room or rental car, purchase airline tickets, or even rent a movie, which may require a credit card. Thus, there is a need to provide convenient, cost-effective, lower risk financial services to this population.
  • [0009]
    In one prior art solution provided by 7-Eleven, a VCOM kiosk provides banking transactions such as money transfer, printing checks, and check cashing based on a deposited amount. However, a customer must also interact with a cashier to perform the banking transactions. Also, the card associated with the VCOM kiosk is only used for identification purposes. Other kiosks manufactured by Blackstone issue cards, but the cards are calling cards.
  • [0010]
    Stored-value cards typically have been used for providing payment for goods or services after a user has deposited money into the stored-value card. For example, stored-value cards have been used as gift cards and as cards that provide payment for coffee or copies.
  • SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
  • [0011]
    The invention addresses the above problems by providing systems and methods for banking transactions that use a kiosk to perform financial services. The kiosk dispenses a stored-value card. The kiosk determines a stored-value account related to a stored-value card for a user. The kiosk then receives user instructions for a banking transaction using the stored-value account. The kiosk then processes the user instructions to perform the banking transaction using the stored-value account.
  • [0012]
    In some embodiments, the kiosk dispenses the stored-value card. In some embodiments, the kiosk assigns the stored-value account to the stored-value card. The kiosk also may receive and process the stored-value card. In some embodiments, the kiosk receives personal data of the user and verifies an identity of the user based on the personal data. In some embodiments, the stored-value card is compatible with a bank card association network.
  • [0013]
    These systems and methods advantageously provide banking transactions using unattended kiosks and stored-value cards. Users can then conduct banking transactions without having to visit a branch of a bank. Furthermore, users can also conveniently perform banking transactions using stored-value cards and stored-value accounts without setting up and maintaining a traditional bank account. A banking transaction is any financial dealing or action related to account activity such as deposits, withdrawals, purchases, transfers, account inquiries, and printing of financial instruments. In some embodiments, users will not be required to visit a branch office of a bank to set up a traditional bank account before being issued a stored-value card for banking transactions.
  • [0014]
    In some embodiments, another advantage is that the user can conduct banking transactions using stored-value cards without being subject to credit checks, extensive background checks, or large deposit requirements. Also, the costs of providing banking transactions are reduced because of the use of an unattended kiosk. In some cases, by requiring cash payment, the risks that banks take in providing banking transaction using stored-value cards are reduced, and the amount deposited in the stored-value account may be available in real-time for other banking transactions. Thus, in some embodiments, banks can provide a broad array of services for banking transactions using stored-value cards to the unbanked population because of the cost-effectiveness and the reduced risks.

Therefore, these and other variations upon the specific embodiments are intended to be covered by the present inventions.
  • [0022]
    The systems and methods for banking transactions use a kiosk to perform financial services. The kiosk dispenses a stored-value card. The kiosk determines a stored-value account related to the stored-value card for a user. The kiosk then receives user instructions for a banking transaction using the stored-value account. The kiosk then processes the user instructions to perform the banking transaction using the stored-value account.
  • [0023]
    A stored-value account is monetary value associated with a card that does not require a credit line or a traditional bank account, such as a demand deposit account (“DDA”) or brokerage account. A stored-value card is any card that is associated with a stored-value account. A banking transaction is any financial dealing or action related to account activity such as deposits, withdrawals, purchases, transfers, account inquiries, and printing of financial instruments.
  • [0024]
    These systems and methods advantageously provide banking transactions using unattended kiosks and stored-value cards. Users can then conduct banking transactions without having to visit a branch of a bank. Furthermore, users can also conveniently perform banking transactions using stored-value cards and stored-value accounts without setting up and maintaining a traditional bank account. In some embodiments, users will not be required to visit a branch office of a bank to set up a traditional bank account before being issued a stored-value card for banking transactions.
  • [0025]
    In some embodiments, another advantage is that the user can conduct banking transactions using stored-value cards without being subject to credit checks, extensive background checks, or large deposit requirements. Also, the costs of providing banking transactions are reduced because of the use of an unattended kiosk. In some cases, by requiring cash payment, the risks that banks take in providing banking transaction using stored-value cards are reduced, and the amount deposited in the stored-value account may be available in real-time for other banking transactions.

In step 408, the biometric capture system 180 captures a biometric data by photo, voice sample, fingerprint, and/or retina scan of the user of the kiosk 100. The process of capturing the biometric data of a user of the kiosk is described in further detail in U.S. application Ser. No. ______ entitled “Systems and Methods for Biometric Identification and Verification of a User of a Kiosk” filed on Oct. 15, 2004, which is hereby incorporated by reference.
  • [0044]
    In step 410, the kiosk 100 scans documents for personal information. In some embodiments, the kiosk 100 scans the documents for personal information through the card reader 120. Some examples of documents that can be scanned are Matricula Consular cards and driver's licenses. In step 412, the kiosk 100 receives personal information based on user input. The kiosk 100 may receive personal information from the audio interface 112, the video interface 114, the keypad 118, the card reader 120, or the biometric capture system 180. Alternative embodiments may use any one or combination of steps 406, 408, and 410 to capture identification and personal information.
  • [0045]
    In step 414, the processor 150 then generates a personal identification record based on the identification imprint and the personal information. In one embodiment, the personal identification record includes name, local address, place and date of birth, digital photo, digital fingerprint, digital voice print, digital photo of ID e.g. driver's license, Social Security number, tax ID number; and Matricula Consular card number. In some embodiments, the card transaction processing system 220 generates a personal identification record based on the identification imprint and the personal information.
  • [0046]
    In step 416, the kiosk 100 displays the personal identification record using the video interface 114 or the audio interface 112 for user verification. In step 418, the processor 150 validates the personal identification record against the government database 230. In other embodiments, the card transaction processing system 220 or the member bank system 240 validates the personal identification record against the government database 230. This validation process is described in further detail in U.S. application Ser. No. ______ entitled “Systems and Methods for Identifying and Verifying a User of a Kiosk Using an External Verification System” filed on Oct. 15, 2004, which is hereby incorporated by reference.
  • [0047]
    In step 420, the processor 150 checks whether the personal identification record is valid. If invalid, the process ends in step 426. If valid, the processor 150 assigns a stored-value account to the stored-value card in step 422. In other embodiments, the stored-value account is preassigned to the stored-value card. In some embodiments, the card transaction processing system 220 assigns a stored-value account to the stored-value card. In step 424, the kiosk 100 dispenses a new stored-value card, card voucher, and/or printed materials through the dispenser system 140. FIG. 4 ends in step 426.
  • [0048]
    FIG. 5 depicts a flow chart for a kiosk for banking transactions in an exemplary embodiment of the invention. FIG. 5 begins in step 500. In step 502, the card reader 120 receives card information from the stored-value card. In step 504, the keypad 118 or the video interface 114 receives the PIN number from the user of the kiosk 100. In step 506, the processor 150 then checks whether the card information and the PIN number are valid. If the card information and the PIN number are invalid, the process ends in step 534.
  • [0049]
    In step 508, the processor 150 checks whether the user has selected to view the balance of their stored-value account. If the user has not selected to view their balance, the process continues to step 512. If the user has selected to view their balance, the video interface 114 displays the balance or the printer 116 prints out the balance for the stored-value account in step 510. In some embodiments, the kiosk 100 provides a card statement, account activity (i.e. last 5 transactions), recent transactions, and/or balances. In some embodiments, the kiosk 100 provides statement information that is required by government regulations. The statement information from the kiosk 100 may provide improved customer service for users that are underbanked or unbanked who may not receive mail or may not have access to the Internet.
  • [0050]
    In step 512, the processor 150 checks whether the user has selected to deposit money into their stored-value account. If the user has not selected to deposit, the process continues to step 520. If the user has selected to deposit, the kiosk 100 receives monetary input for the stored-value account in step 514. The monetary input may be by cash, check, credit, debit, or another stored-value card. The kiosk 100 may receive the monetary input through either the check reader 132, the money validation device 136, or any other device in the monetary transaction devices 130 that accepts the monetary input.
  • [0051]
    In step 516, the kiosk 100 validates the monetary input. In step 518, the processor 150 generates the account entry for the monetary input deposited to the stored-value account. In some embodiments, the monetary input deposited is immediately available in the stored value account, which may result in instantaneous money sharing among multiple users.
  • [0052]
    In step 520, the processor 150 checks whether the user has selected to withdraw money from their stored-value account. If the user has not selected to withdraw, the process continues to step 530. If the user has selected to withdraw, the processor 150 checks whether the user has selected to withdraw by printing a check or money order. If the user has selected to print a check or money order, the check printer 134 prints the check or money order in step 524. In some embodiments, the checks have a preprinted amount that can be validated in real time to check if the funds are available in the stored-value account or that the funds have been deposited and validated in the kiosk 100. In some embodiments, the user of the kiosk 100 can add the payee and the signature for the check. In some embodiments, the check amount is instantaneously debited from the stored-value account to allow “pre-paid” checks as opposed to traditional “post-paid” checks. If the user has not selected to print a check or money order, the kiosk 100 disperses cash in step 526. In step 528, the processor 530 generates an account entry for the monetary output withdrawn from the stored-value account.
  • [0053]
    In step 530, the processor 150 checks whether the user has selected to transfer money from the stored-value account to another account. Some examples of other accounts are described above in FIG. 3. In some embodiments, the user can only transfer to the accounts that the user owns. In other embodiments, the user owns a master account and transfers to sub-accounts that are for sharing with or providing access to other users. In some embodiments, the user may select to undo the transfer. If the user has not selected to transfer, the process ends in step 534. If the user has selected to transfer, the processor 150 generates account entries to transfer the monetary output from the stored-value account in step 532. FIG. 5 ends in step 534. Another example of a banking transaction is money sharing, which is described in further detail in U.S. patent application Ser. No. ______ entitled “Systems and Methods for Money Sharing” filed on Oct. 15, 2004, which is hereby incorporated by reference. Also, in some embodiments, the user may send an e-mail through the kiosk 100, and the kiosk 100 may display a reply e-mail for customer services purposes.
