4. Connect your bank account and verify your payment method

If you wish to connect your bank account, you'll need to verify it. 

Connect your bank account automatically by signing in to your bank through Plaid or manually by verifying with micro-deposits. 

NOTE: Connecting your bank account

Connecting instantly with Plaid takes only a few seconds. Verifying with micro-deposits will take about 1-2 business days.
