Why do I need to fund my account during application?

All NorthOne applicants are required to provide an initial deposit of $50 minimum in order to access all of NorthOne’s features and offerings.

Initial funding of your NorthOne Account is done via Plaid, which transfers funds from your existing bank account to your NorthOne Account. To fund, simply enter the dollar amount (minimum of $50), click ‘continue’ and follow the prompts.

Note: The External Account must have a balance of 1.5X the amount of the initial deposit.

Example: if your initial deposit is the minimum $100, the minimum balance in the External Account must be $150 at the time of the initial deposit.

What if my existing institution is not showing up in the Plaid search?

If you enter an institution that is not in the Plaid network, you will be unable to manually link your external account.

How long does it take for my initial deposit to land in my NorthOne account?

Initial deposits arrive by standard ACH and typically take 1-3 business days. During this time, you will not have access to your NorthOne Account.


NorthOne is a financial technology company, and not a bank.

Banking services are provided by The Bancorp Bank, N.A., Member FDIC.
