  4. Choose the account you want to deposit the check into by tapping on “Deposit account” and then selecting from the list of available accounts that pop up.

  5. Tap on the “Amount” section and use the keyboard that appears on the screen to enter the amount of the check.

How to Add an External Transfer Account  

Before you can start making external transfers, you have to add the external account(s) to your online banking profile.

  1. Login to your online banking profile, and click on “Transfers.”

  2. Once on the “Transfers” page, click on the “Classic” tab at the top.  

  3. Under the “To Account” section, click on “Add an external account.”

  4. A new screen will pop up with our “ACH Transfer Policy.” Read it, click the box next to “I Agree” and then click “Continue” to accept the policy.

  5. On the next screen, you’ll be prompted to enter the account details for the external account you want to make a transfer to. Select the “Account Type” from the drop-down list and enter the routing number. Enter the account number twice for confirmation, then give the account an easy-to-remember “Nickname,” such as “Home Town Bank Checking.” When finished, click “Save.”

  6. Next, you’ll be asked to verify your identity. You can choose “Email” to receive an email to the address we have on file for you, “Call” to get a phone call to the number we have on file for you, or “Questions” to answer challenge questions.  

  7. After verifying your identity, you’ll get a message stating that to verify your external accounts, two (2) confirmation deposits will be made to it within 2-3 days. These deposits will be for just a few cents each. Once they’ve been made, you’ll receive an email to finish the process — see step 8.

  8. Once you receive the above email, check your external account and write down the dates and amounts of the confirmation deposits that were made to it. Then login to your Frontwave online banking profile. On your dashboard, you’ll see a notice that reads “You have 1 pending external account.” Click on the “Confirm” button next to this notice.

  9. This will take you to the Accounts page. Scroll down until you see your external account listed under “ACH Accounts,” then click the “Confirm” button again. 

  10. On the “Confirm Trial Deposits” page, enter the 2 confirmation deposits that were made to your external account in the order in which they were made. Enter the First Deposit (earliest date), then the Second Deposit (latest date), and then hit “Confirm.”

If you enter the amounts correctly, you’ll be returned to the “Accounts” page where you’ll see your external account is “Open.” This means you’re ready to start making transfers!

If you enter the amounts incorrectly, you’ll be asked to try again. Double check the transactions on your external account records and reenter them. Be forewarned: you only get 3 tries before your external account will be suspended. If the account is suspended, click on the trash can icon to delete the suspended account and go back to step 1 to repeat the process of adding your external account.
