How to add cash to Stash
When you add cash to Stash from a linked bank, it will go to your Bank Cash Balance.
To add cash from a linked bank:
- Tap Transfer in the bottom navigation
- Tap Add cash
- Tap the $0.00 amount entry field, then enter an amount
- Tap From and choose a source
- Swipe Add to confirm
It can take 1 to 4 business days for your cash to be available. To add cash instantly, you can choose your external bank’s debit card as your funding source for a small fee.
Please note that transfers made before 9:45 a.m. PT are generally available to spend in 1 to 2 business days, but may take up to 4 days depending on your linked bank. Transfers made after this time will process on the next available business day.
Once your cash has hit your Bank Cash Balance, you can invest, spend, or move it using the “Transfer” button in the bottom navigation or by choosing your Bank Cash Balance as your funding source when you make an investment.
