In early 2016, Kickfurther will begin charging our backers a 1% fee for using a credit card to back an offer. To avoid this fee, our US backers can link their bank accounts to their Kickfurther accounts to get a 1% bonus plus $10 of Kickfurther credit.
How to Link Your Bank Account:
Login to your Kickfurther account
Click on “Settings” and then "Banking"
Verify your identity with the prompted information
- If your SSN fails to verify your identity, use this link to upload a JPEG of your ID for verification instead: https://kickfurther.com/synapse/passport
Choose your bank from the list of drop down providers
For instant verification, enter in your bank account password and username
- If entering this information makes you uncomfortable, please choose “Other” from the list of bank options to verify with Micro Deposits instead
- You will be prompted to enter in your bank routing and bank account number
- Micro Deposits can take 3 - 5 business days to be deposited into your bank account depending on your banking provider
- Once the micro deposits appear in your bank account, enter the sum of the two micro deposits in your Kickfurther account to connect your bank account
Once your account is linked, you will see the following message under the “Banking” tab in your Kickfurther account: “Your bank account has been successfully linked.”
To add funds from your bank account to your Kickfurther account, click on the "Add Funds" link in the upper left corner of your backer account dashboard.
