  3. Select a previous payee or enter a new recipient.

Recipient's Side

1. Once you have sent the email, the recipient should receive an email which looks like this!

2. Selecting the Deposit Now option in the email will redirect them to a secure portal where they can begin the acceptance of the funds. On this screen, select Continue.

3. The recipient will need to correctly answer the security question, provided when you sent the initial transfer. The recipient will have 3 attempts to answer this correctly. If incorrectly answered 3 times, the transfer is cancelled.

4. After successfully answering the security question, the business owner will then be asked which financial institution they would like to use to deposit the funds. They can either select from our most popular financial institutions or search for theirs using the search bar.

5. Selecting their financial institution opens up a secure login portal to their online banking. After successfully logging in, they can then choose which account they would like to deposit the funds into.

6. The recipient is then greeted with a confirmation screen which confirms the account the funds will be deposited to, the 3-4 business day timeline for the deposit, and the optional message you entered when sending the email. They also have the option to save their bank account for even faster email transfers in the future! Selecting accept transfer then begins the transfer timeline!
