Get Familiar with Commercial Connect Changes

Some things are the same. Some will work a little differently. We know you’ll love working with the new platform once you see everything you’ll be able to do. Here’s a handy reference to guide you through the changes.

First-Time Login

For your first login to Commercial Connect, you will need your current Organization ID (referred to as Company ID in Commercial Connect), your current User ID, and the temporary password that was mailed to you three weeks prior to your transition date.

Login Security

Challenge questions and use of a One-Time Passcode (OTP) protect your accounts and data. They confirm your identity if we detect use of a new device, failed login attempts, or other suspicious behavior.

ACH

How you access, process and securely release your ACH payments is changing.

Wire Transfers

How you access, process and release domestic and international wires is changing.
