    Rules for transferring money online

    You can transfer money between:

    • Two online accounts at the same Direct Connect financial institution.
    • A checking account and a credit card account at the same financial institution (if your financial institution allows this). When you transfer money out of a credit card account, it's considered a cash advance. When you transfer money into a credit card account, it's considered a payment.

    You can't:

    • Transfer money between online accounts at different financial institutions.
    • Transfer money between accounts that have different customer ID (or Social Security) numbers.
    • Schedule a transfer ahead of time; the transfer instruction is processed on the day you send it (or the next business day, at the latest).
    • Transfer money online using Express Web Connect, Web Connect, or manual accounts.
