At tastytrade, you can fund your account in four different ways: ACH, Wire, Check, and ACAT. To watch a video instead, click here. Accounts cannot be funded using a credit card or any online payment system (e.g., PayPal). If you just applied for a tastytrade account, you must wait for your account to be open before you can fund your account. International customers click here for available funding methods.
At tastytrade, we do not accept third-party funding of any kind. The name on the account associated with your ACH, wire, check, or ACAT must match the name on your tastytrade account.
The most convenient way to fund is by setting up an ACH relationship. An ACH establishes an electronic relationship between your bank account and your tastytrade account. To learn more about establishing an ACH relationship, click here. Once your bank account is linked, you'll be able to move funds to and from your brokerage account with ease. You can set up an ACH relationship by signing in to your account after your account is open. An ACH relationship can only be established with a U.S.-based bank account. Brokerage-to-brokerage ACH relationships are not supported. To transfer cash directly from a brokerage account, please use a wire transfer.
International customers may only set up an ACH relationship with a US-based bank account. An ACH relationship with third-party transfer service, such as TransferWise, cannot be established. To learn about available funding options for international customers, please click here.
Fund your account via wire transfer. To do so, please contact your bank to provide the following information on their outgoing wire form. Wire transfers must be made in U.S. Dollars (USD).
