Connecting a bank account
Micro-deposits are a way of verifying your bank account using your account and routing number. There are two methods to deposit funds into your Donut account. By connecting your bank through our Plaid Integration, or by manually connecting your bank account.

If you choose to manually connect your bank account, once you submit this info to our secure portal, our banking partner will send two micro-deposits (they will typically be a random amount less than $1.00) to your account in order to verify the connection. Once these micro-deposits show in your bank account, usually 1 - 3 business days, log back into Donut and add these two amounts in the fields to verify and connect your bank manually.

Direct Deposit

When setting up Direct Deposit, your payroll provider may verify your Donut account by sending a test transaction. These micro-deposits will appear in your activity feed as Direct Deposits. Enter these amounts in your payroll provider to complete your connection to Donut and the set up of Direct Deposit.
