Wallets

Any Moov account can hold a balance in a wallet.

Each Moov account can request a wallet, where the account holder can store funds. The wallet allows for flexibility on when and how you’d like to move funds. Using the wallet as a funding source is an option for faster payouts. Some examples of what you can accomplish with the wallet:

  • Transfer funds from one Moov wallet to another person’s Moov wallet
  • Transfer funds out of your Moov wallet to your own bank account
  • Add money from your bank account to your Moov wallet

If you’re collecting payments or facilitating payment collection for your users, you can set a wallet as the transfer destination. You may then choose to cash out those aggregated funds to a bank account or even transfer between wallets of other Moov accounts.

Balance

Each wallet has a balance which represents the funds currently available for that Moov account. You can set up a webhook to receive wallet balance change events.

Timing of transfers

If you’re making a transfer between two Moov wallets, the timing of the transfer is immediate and the balances should instantly reflect the update in value.

If you’re transferring from a bank account to a wallet, the funds won’t be available in the wallet balance until the funds are received.

Transferring from a wallet will instantly decrease the wallet’s balance.

Payment method

Moov will automatically create a payment method when the wallet capability is enabled for a Moov account.
