Linking your bank account is an easy process which is facilitated by our integration with Plaid. In order to link your account, you need the username and password you normally use to sign in to your bank's online portal. You will need a bank which supports online login and is covered by the Plaid network in order to link to Gatsby.
To create the link, navigate to the settings tab (denoted by "...") and click "Transfer Money to Gatsby". You will then be prompted to connect to your bank, after which, you can fund your account.
More information on linking your bank
Bank connections are done through ACH. ACH refers to the Automated Clearing House, which is an electronic network that facilitates electronic payments. ACH transactions are commonly used to directly transfer funds from one financial institution to another. For more information on ACH’s, please see this webpage.
