Simple speeds up funds transfers

20 June 2014  |  2285 views  |  0 Source: Simple

Speeding up external transfer times has been a long-standing goal of ours. When you apply for a Simple account, you're signing up for the promise of a better banking experience. Waiting 5 - 6 days to transfer money isn't just inconvenient, it's disappointing.

Moving your money should be quick and easy. Today we're announcing an update that delivers both.

Moving money to External Accounts takes just one business day. If you send a transfer from Simple before 7 pm PST, your money will arrive in the receiving bank as soon as the following morning. That's 75% faster than before.

Some banks charge a fee for transferring your money to external accounts, and only offer accelerated transfers at a premium. Today, Bank of America and Wells Fargo, for example, charge $3 to move your money to another bank. If you want that money to arrive the next business day, the fee shoots up to $10 per transfer.1 Note that it costs banks less than a cent to send an ACH transfer.

We don't believe in unnecessary fees. External transfers to and from Simple will remain free for customers.

If you haven't already connected your Simple account to another bank account you own, you can quickly link a new External Account in our iOS or web apps. Once your accounts are linked, you'll be able to schedule transfers from our web, iOS, and Android apps. Sign in to try faster External Account transfers today.
