The quickest and most convenient way to fund is via ACH, using our instant bank linking system (Plaid). For more information about our instant linking system, please click here. However, if your bank is not listed in our linking system, then click I CAN’T FIND MY BANK. There, you can enter your checking account number, bank routing number, and give it a nickname. After entering your bank information, you will receive two micro-deposits in your bank account. Micro-deposits will land in your bank account in 2-3 business days. After you verify your checking account, you can initiate your first deposit. For a more detailed write-up on manually linking your bank, please click here.

*Please Note: Savings accounts, foreign (non-US) banks, and brokerage-to-brokerage ACH links are NOT supported. Only checking accounts may be linked when manually inputting your banking information. Also, checking accounts linked manually are subject to a four business-day hold until funds are made available for trading. To learn more about this hold, please click here.

Information on how to fund by check, wire, or if you’re transferring from another brokerage via ACAT (Automated Customer Account Transfer) can all be found by visiting our deposits page. All fund transfers must be made in U.S. Dollars (USD).
