What is Lightning Speed and how can I get it?

When you transfer out with Lightning Speed, your money will be in your account in minutes* instead of days – even on weekends and holidays. 

Sign up for Lighting Speed:

  • Have an eligible debit card, not a prepaid card or paycard linked to a checking account (not a savings account)
  • Login to the app
  • Click the Lightning Speed banner on the app home page

It can take up to one business day to verify your card. Depending on your bank, EarnIn will send small test transactions to confirm a working connection with your bank.

Also, remember to update your card in the app if it’s expired, lost or stolen. 


How do I pay the Lightning Speed fees?

On your payday, EarnIn will automatically debit your bank account the total amount of transfers, Lightning Speed fees, plus any optional tips. 

Check your upcoming debits under the Activity tab in the app.
