How does Green Dot work?
Currently the only way to deposit cash is to take it to a major retailer in the Green Dot network and give the cash and your card to a checkout clerk to process the deposit. Major retailers include Walgreens, CVS, and Dollar General, which you can find on the Green Dot location map. Retailers charge $4.95 for this service. We unfortunately cannot control these service fees. We will refund  the Green Dot processing fee for single deposits over $750.

How to link your external bank account
Login to the FairPay mobile app
Swipe to the left until you see the Link Your Bank Account option
Select from the list of popular financial institutions or type the name of your bank into the search bar
Once the bank account is selected, please follow their sign in/verification process
Once you have successfully linked your external bank account you will receive a confirmation message
You will see the new external account listed on the app alongside your Fair account(s)

NOTE: If your financial institution is not listed, you can contact us about adding them, or try setting up an external transfer to your Fair account from your bank. This is usually called an "external account transfer" within your bank's web portal or mobile app. You will need your Fair routing and account number to complete this step, which is available in the FairPay mobile app by tapping on the gear icon in the upper right, then tapping Show my account info.
