Frequently Asked Questions

  • At Grasshopper we use the daily balance method to calculate interest on our deposit accounts. This method applies a daily periodic rate to the principal available in your account each day.

    Please note: When calculating interest, we use the collected balance, which means we only include funds that we have actually received payment for.

    For more information about rates, refer to our rate sheet.

  • As a digital bank, we have a digital-first mindset, which means we are advocates of using technology to complete financial transactions online. That being said, we do not offer checks at this time and encourage you to use bill pay to make or schedule payments via paper check. You are also welcome to order them from our preferred vendor, Harland Clarke, or any third-party vendor of your choice. We do not charge any fees for writing or depositing checks from your account.

  • As a digital-first bank, we provide powerful digital tools to easily deposit checks from your mobile device. We do not offer cash deposits at this time.

    For more information about manual check processing or assistance with mobile check deposit, please reach out to Client Services.

    Exception Wire Processing

    We understand that sometimes things are beyond your control, so an exception process remains in place for time sensitive wires, which requires notification to Client Services prior to the cutoff times. All wires submitted after the cutoff times will be considered an exception wire and will be released on a best effort basis. If Client Services does not a receive notification, the wire will be processed on the following business day. To guarantee same day wire processing, please follow the guidelines stated above.

    For wires exceeding $10 million, a notification must be sent to Client Services by 3:00PM ET to guarantee same day processing.

    Once an external transfer is submitted, the process can take an estimated 1-3 business days to be credited to the receiving institution. If further information is required to process your transfer, we may reach out for additional verification.
