What happens after I launch my campaign and start receiving contributions?
Once you have received your first contribution via direct credit card, you will be prompted to complete the bank account form. You must have your bank account information added within 30 days of receiving your first credit card contribution. Otherwise, your campaign may be prevented from receiving further contributions.
You will be asked for:
- Last four digits of the funds recipient's social security number
- Address associated with the bank account
- Bank account number
- Routing number
I have a business/nonprofit organization and my name isn't on the account. What do I do?
If you have a business or nonprofit campaign, it's very possible that the name on your bank account is the organization name, and not the name of an individual. In this case, we recommend continuing to add the organization's bank information to the bank form, since you're raising funds for them.
Please note: you will also still need to enter the funds recipient's SSN, and they will need to be verified. Even if you have an EIN, you must enter the recipient's SSN.
