If you use a third-party payment processor, or any application where you need to provide your bank account details to have funds deposited, you can set your Wave Money account as the payout account using your account and routing numbers.

To find your account and routing numbers, select Banking on the bottom menu of the Wave mobile app, then tap Routing and account numbers under the Bank section.
