How to Add a Bank Account for Payment Method

Note: If you are trying to add or select a debit card as your payment method, see this help center article.

Typically, our deposits and payments are processed automatically through direct deposit via your primary account. If you want your current primary account to be your payment account, there's nothing extra you need to do here! If you are looking to select a new primary account from the accounts already linked in app, see this help center article.

If you need to update your payment account to something other than your primary account, you can add the new account in app then reach out to customer service using the contact us form. Our customer service team will help you select your new payment account for your loan. If you run into any difficulties with this process we encourage you to reach out to our customer success team for assistance.

Please note, for security purposes, you will be required to verify the last 4 digits of your SSN, Date of Birth and to confirm your banking details when contacting customer support for assistance.

Note: The payment account will apply to the individual loan. Each new loan will default to the primary account as the payment method.

Adding a New Linked Bank Account in App

  1. Go to the "Account Management" page in your Possible App
  2. Tap “Add a New Account” at the bottom of the screen
  3. Tap “Link Bank with Plaid" and follow the prompts to link your account

Adding a New Manually Added Bank Account in App

  1. Go to the "Account Management" page in your Possible App
  2. Tap “Add a New Account” at the bottom of the screen
  3. Tap “Routing & Account Number”

Important: You'll need to select a new payment account before your payment begins processing. Once a payment begins processing it can't be redirected to a different bank account. If your payment is already processed or being processed, our customer service team can still help you change your payment account for future payments. You'll just need to update your payment date(s) if any payment(s) comes back as unsuccessful from the previous account.

Notes:

  • If your payment is due before your new account is eligible, please update your payment dates in the app for a later date
  • *We are not able to accept personal checks at this time. We apologize for the inconvenience!

What are the benefits of paying with a debit card?

  • All payments will finish processing within 24 hours
  • If you miss a payment, you can get caught up faster
  • Your loan will be marked as paid off faster and you’ll be eligible to reapply sooner
  • There’s no extra cost to you

Things to keep in mind

  • This is still a relatively new feature, so some Visa and Mastercard debit cards (typically credit cards and prepaid cards) are still not able to be supported.
  • If your payment is due before your new account is eligible, please update your payment dates in the app for a later date
  • *We are not able to accept personal checks at this time. We apologize for the inconvenience!

What is the Difference Between Linked and Manually Added Accounts?

Linked accounts are linked in the app through one of our aggregators like Plaid. Linked accounts can be used as primary accounts, for applications, for disbursements, and for payments. Linked debit cards are linked to a linked account and can be used for disbursements and payments.

Manually added accounts are accounts that are not linked through an aggregator. These accounts cannot be used as a primary account, for applications, or for disbursements. Manually added accounts and debit cards can only be used for payments.

How Do I Select a New Primary Account?

Important: You'll need to select your new primary account before your payment begins processing. Once a payment begins processing it can't be redirected to a different bank account. If your payment is already processed or being processed, you're still able to change your primary account, it just won’t be the payment method for any in payments already in processing. You'll just need to update your payment dates if processing payments come back as unsuccessful.

To select a new primary account, follow the steps below:

  1. Go to the "Account Management" page in your Possible App
  2. From the accounts listed, tap the pencil icon next to the account you want to make your primary account
  3. On the popup, select “Set as Primary” to change your payment account

**To learn more about primary accounts, see this help center article.

Eligible Accounts

Unfortunately, not all bank accounts are eligible to be set as a primary account. If you would like to use an account as primary, it must meet the following requirements:

  • Must be linkable through one of banking partners in the app
  • Must be a traditional checking account (debit cards cannot be set as primary)
