Frequently asked questions
How long does it take for my transfer to process? +
After a transfer is initiated, it can take 2+ business days for your money to become available in the destination account.
Astra is built on the ACH network. When you move your money through a transfer in the app, it will show as "pending" in your source account almost immediately. If you are transferring those funds into your Astra Wallet or Goal, it may not clear and show in your balance for 2-4 business days. If you are transferring funds between two external accounts it can take between 2-8 business days for those funds to be available in the destination account.
If you are uncertain about the status of a transfer, check your Timeline in the app. And of course, if you have any questions feel free to reach out to Astra support!
How do Round Up routines work? +
"Round Ups" round up to the nearest dollar and process weekly.
Starting on the specified Start Date, Astra will calculate an amount for each of the transactions on your Spending Account. On a weekly basis, that sum will transfer between your Source and Destination Accounts. Your Spending Account can be either a checking or credit card account.
A few examples:
- I purchase a coffee for $2.48, Astra will round up to $3.00 and plan to save $0.52.
- My Netflix subscription processes for $12.99, Astra will round up to $13.00 and plan to save $0.01.
- I buy lunch at my favorite taco truck for $10.00, Astra will round up to $11.00 and plan to save $1.00.
Is Astra a bank? +
Not a bank, but an automation service for your finances.
Astra is not a bank. We work with our partners Plaid and Dwolla to offer access to financial services; however, your money is never held by an Astra entity. Instead, we utilize Dwolla’s white-label banking services to secure your funds and act as a switching station, moving money between accounts based on the actions you program.
