Are you wondering how to get money off your DasherDirect virtual card? Fortunately, it’s not complicated. Once you’ve opened your DasherDirect account, you’ll be able to create a DasherDirect login, then transfer money from your DasherDirect virtual card to any bank account.
In this post, we’ll go through the process of how to get money off your Dasher direct virtual card, as well as review some of the limitations to getting your money off the DasherDirect virtual card.
How To Get Money Off DasherDirect Virtual Card
At the outset, it’s helpful to discuss what the DasherDirect virtual card is. When you open your DasherDirect account, you’ll be provided with a DasherDirect virtual card, which you can use to make purchases online. You will use this card until your physical card arrives (typically in 10-14 business days).
Just like with the physical card, you’ll be able to add money to your DasherDirect virtual card. You’ll also be able to link external bank accounts to your DasherDirect account and move money between your different accounts.
To transfer money from your DasherDirect virtual card to an external bank account, you’ll need to do the following:
- First, open the DasherDirect app, then click “More” in the bottom right corner.
- Next, click on “Move Money.”
- From there, you’ll select “Send Money To Someone.” This will open up a screen where you can add your bank account. Click on “Add Recipient,” then fill out the information including your bank account and routing number.
Once you’ve initiated the transfer, you’ll get a message saying your funds are in transfer. You should receive your funds in 1-2 business days (if you use a bank that pays early, such as Lili or Chime, you’ll likely receive your funds within a day, at most). Note that if you’re transferring money on a weekend or holiday, your transfer will be processed the next business day.
You can only transfer funds to US bank accounts, so if you’re trying to move money to international accounts, you’ll need to figure out another option.
Transfers are free, so you don’t have to worry about fees when you move money between your DasherDirect virtual card and your other bank account(s).
DasherDirect Transfer Limits
DasherDirect has limits on how much you can transfer. Here’s what the limits are:
- You can transfer up to $2,000 per 24-hour period, for a maximum of 3 transfers in that span.
- You can transfer up to $5,000 in a month, and up to 30 transfers in a 30-day period.
If you want to get around these transfer limits, you’ll need to log into your external bank accounts, then link DasherDirect to your bank account using your DasherDirect routing number and account number. You can then initiate the transfer from your external bank account, which would avoid these limitations.
One thing to note is that you have to receive at least one DoorDash payout before you can get your DasherDirect account numbers. I’m not sure why this requirement is in place, but it’s something you’ll have to do before you can get your account numbers.
Canceling DasherDirect Transfers
If you transfer money but decide you want to cancel it, you’ll need to cancel it before the “same-day cutoff” point. To do that, go to the “Move Money” menu in the DasherDirect app, then click the button to cancel the transfer.
If you don’t see a button to cancel the transfer, it means your transfer has already been processed and you won’t be able to cancel it. In general, if you want to cancel a transfer, do it immediately.
Getting money off of your DasherDirect virtual card is fairly straightforward. All you have to do is add your bank account as a recipient in the DasherDirect app, then initiate a transfer.
Hopefully, this information helps you out if you just got your DasherDirect account set up and need to move money off the card. Feel free to leave any questions or comments below.
