At tastyworks, you can fund your account in four different ways. To watch a video instead, click here. Accounts cannot be funded using a credit card or any online payment system (e.g., PayPal).

  1. ACH
  2. Wire
  3. Check
  4. ACAT Transfer


The most convenient way to fund is by setting up an ACH. An ACH establishes an electronic relationship between your bank account and your tastyworks account. To learn more about establishing an ACH relationship, click here. Once your bank account is linked, you'll be able to move funds to and from your brokerage account with ease. 

You can set up an ACH relationship by signing in to your account after you have an open account with us.

ACH relationships can only be established with U.S.-based banks. Brokerage-to-brokerage ACH relationships are not supported. To transfer funds directly from a brokerage account, please use a wire transfer.
