Plaid is a service we use so that you're able to add your bank account instantly to your Greenlight account! This is a time-saver for you, since adding your bank account manually can take up to 7 business days to be verified with funds loaded.
To use Plaid, please follow the steps below:
1) Log in to the Greenlight app
2) Tap on your Parent's Wallet
3) Tap on "Funding Accounts"
4) Tap "Add Funding Account"
5) Tap "Add a bank instantly"
6) Read the prompt and tap "Get Started" if you agree
7) Choose your banking institution
8) Enter your online banking credentials
9) Choose to have verification go to your phone via text or call and hit continue
10) Enter the verification code once received
11) Choose the bank account you'd like to use to fund your Greenlight account and hit continue
After the last step, you should automatically be taken back to your parent's wallet and you can load a minimum of $1.
Additionally, you can manually add your bank account using your Checking and Routing number. Your banking institution can take up to 7 business days to verify the connection. After this, you can load a minimum of $1 within 2-3 business days.
