One option for linking your bank account is micro-deposits. Micro-deposits establish a link between your bank account and our clearing firm, Apex Clearing.

How to connect with micro-deposits:

  1. Select the icon with 3 lines on it in the top left corner

  2. Scroll down and select Account Settings

  3. Select Payment Methods

  4. Select Microdeposits from the choices offered

From there, you should be able to follow the prompts and input your bank account info (routing and account number).

Then, in 3-7 days, you will receive 2 small deposits from "APEX Clearing." These deposits have expiration dates and will be withdrawn once they expire (after about 10 days), so we suggest you enter them in as soon as you see those amounts in your account.

Once the 2 small transfers show up in your bank account go to your Public app to verify your account.

To verify micro-deposits:

  1. Select the icon with 3 lines on it in the top left corner

  2. Scroll down and select Account Settings

  3. Select Payment Methods

  4. Tap the three dots in the corner of the box with your bank info, then tap Verify

You'll need to enter the zero before the decimal, then a period, then the number:

  • For example: if you receive $0.05 and $0.12, enter "0.05" and "0.12"

After that, your bank account will be linked for deposits

Heads up: in order to withdraw, you will be asked to provide a bank statement to verify that you are the account owner.
