How to authorize a US-based account

Modified on:


Bitso has partnered with Circle Internet Financial Ltd, a registered money transmitter, to help you send and receive USD wire transfers from third parties.

If you want to know how to send USD wires, visit: How to send USD wire transfers

If you want to know how to receive USD wires, visit: How to deposit USD

Bitso allows you to send and receive domestic wires as if you had a US-based bank account. However, it is still an international transaction (except it is cheaper and faster!). For those reasons and to comply with regulations, Bitso needs to know the account you will be interacting with.

You can only receive or send funds if you previously authorized the USD account in Bitso. Read the following instructions and learn how to do it.

ARGENTINA: Keep in mind that USD accounts based in Argentina don’t allow this wire. It must be a US-based account.

 

How to authorize an account

Authorizing an account is easy and fast. You can authorize any US-based account.

You only need to follow this process once for each account you want to authorize. After the account authorization is completed, you will be able to send and receive funds as many times as you want from each authorized account.

Whether you want to deposit or send, you will need to authorize an account and complete all the fields with the account information. Before you do so, ask the sender or receiver to provide you all the following details:

  • Bank: Bank that belongs to the account you want to authorize.
  • Routing number: 9 digit number that identifies the bank.
  • Account number: 10 to 12 digit number that identifies the account you want to authorize.
  • Street number and name: Street number and name of the person or company who owns the account.
  • Apt/suite/unit: Optional field to add apartment, suite, floor, or other secondary address information.
  • City:City where the account was registered.
  • Zip code: Zip code from where the account was registered.
  • Country: Country where the account was registered.
  • State: State of the person or company who owns the account.
  • Contact email: Email of the person or company who owns the account. Bitso will use this email to send updates about the transactions.

 

How to delete an authorized account

Currently, it is not possible to edit the account details. So, in case you enter some incorrect information, you can delete the account and authorize it again.

1. Select “Send” or “Deposit”.
