Q: Will I have the ability to write someone a check from a FlipGive banking app?
You will be able to deposit a check into your FlipGive bank account by taking a picture of it, but writing a check to someone else from your FlipGive bank account is not available at this time.
Q: Will the account be able to do e-transfers?
Yes, you will be able to add an account to a team address book and then send or receive money via ACH transfer.
Q: Can we get the FlipGive banking app if we already have a team bank account
Yes you can, however tracking funds across two different accounts defeats the purpose of simplifying your team's finances - if you are interested in using the FlipGive bank app, what we suggest is to:
Use the budget app link activity to connect your existing team bank account and pull down all of your transaction histories
Transfer all of your remaining funds in your current bank account over to the FlipGive bank app
Go back to the budget app and reconnect the FlipGive bank account to get all of your transaction histories
Close your existing team bank account and use the FlipGive bank app for your team for the remainder of the season!
By doing this you will have all of your transactions recorded in one place in the budget app and will be able to take advantage of the cashback from the FlipGive bank app moving forward!
Q: How is my FlipGive account different from a bank account?
Your FlipGive account is an electronic money account. It's entirely online, so you can instantly create and securely manage your team’s account from anywhere. Plus, you earn cash back on every team expense with a team debit card. You can’t get an overdraft or loan and you won’t earn interest.
Q: Where does FlipGive put my money?
Your deposits are held and protected by our Member FDIC partner bank with bank-level security and encryption.
Q: How does the FlipGive Banking App work?
Start by creating your account online in a few minutes. Once you have an account you can request your team's 1% cash back spending card. It will take 7-10 days to arrive. Anytime after setup, you can link an existing bank account and transfer funds to your FlipGive account or deposit checks.
When your card arrives and your account is funded you can use the card and earn 1% back on every expense. Activity reports and monthly statements are easily available to help you track your money all season long!
Q: Am I allowed to set up the FlipGive banking app for my team?
Yes, if you’re responsible for collecting fees and covering costs for the team we’ve made it simple for you to sign up - all you need is some personal information and a sample team document to be up and running in minutes!
