Transfer Funds from Your Bank Account
Reload your Green Dot card directly from your bank, credit union, or other financial institution! Many banks offer the ability to transfer funds through a process known as "ACH transfer."  It's a great way to reload your Card.

Will I be charged a fee?
Green Dot does not charge a fee for this service, but your bank may.

Please check your bank’s website or contact them for details.

How long does it take?
Each bank has its own timeframe for how long it takes to transfer funds. Usually, it will take 1-3 business days.  Your bank can provide more details.

Is there a limit on how much I can load?
You may load up to $1,000 in any 30 day period.

If you attempt to reload your Card using multiple methods on the same day (such as Reload @ the Register and ACH), the Green Dot daily load limit of $2,500 still applies. Your bank may also apply limits on the amount you can transfer. Please contact your bank for more information.

How does it work?
Login to your bank's website and follow your bank's instructions to set up an ACH Transfer (sometimes referred to as “electronic funds transfer”). Each bank will have their own setup process, but you will need the below information to initiate a transfer to your Green Dot card. Important note! The routing and direct deposit numbers can only be used to transfer funds onto your Green Dot card. They may not be used to pay bills or take money off your Card. All transactions of this type will be declined.
