ACH for multiple accounts

How does it affect you?

  • If you have more than one account, only one can be used to cash out with ACH as the payment method. For your additional accounts please use convert to tokens as the payment method, you can then transfer the tokens to the account you have setup for ACH through the tip jar or as gifts. Payment can then be requested from the ACH account
