Important Note:

For the first 60 days following a deposit, you can only withdraw funds to the bank account from which they were deposited. If the original bank account is closed, we can initiate a transfer to another bank account if the following information are provided: photo of your government issued ID, bank statement showing that you are the account holder of the linked bank account, and bank statement showing that your original bank account is closed.

Based on account status, certain withdrawals may be subject to review and approval.
