A couple things to keep in mind:

  • An external bank account must be a personal checking account.  At this time, Stash does not support linking savings accounts, third-party, or business accounts (even if your name is listed on the account). We also do not support linking prepaid cards, debit cards, or credit cards.
  • To fight fraud, there are cases in which you will need to provide documentation in order to change your external bank account. 
  • You can link only one external bank account to Stash at this time.
