How do I connect a bank account?
- From the Funding Source page, click on "Connect an account".
- Next, search for your bank or choose it from the list. If your bank doesn't turn up in the search results, simply click the "add any bank" button and provide your routing and account numbers.
- Choose a verification method: Instant Account Verification (which uses the same login credentials you use on your bank's website, and verifies that you own the account within seconds) or Micro-deposit Verification (which uses your routing and account numbers, and can take up to 3 days).
- Option 1 - For Instant Account Verification, you'll be prompted to enter your online banking credentials. The banking information you entered is not stored by Dwolla. If you have multiple accounts with the same bank, you'll be asked to choose one. After that, your bank account will be successfully connected with Dwolla so you can easily transfer money in and out of the Dwolla network.
- Option 2 - If you select Micro-deposit Verification, Dwolla will make two small deposits between $0.01 and $0.20 into the bank account you provided. Keep an eye out for these deposits - they typically show up within 1-3 business days - and note the specific amounts. Then, return to Funding Sources and click "Verify" next to your bank. Enter the amounts of the two deposits you received from DWOLLA in your bank account (e.g., $0.03 and $0.12). After you enter the two amounts correctly, your bank account will be successfully connected with Dwolla!
