STACKIN' INVEST FAQ'S
How do I invest with Stackin'?
It’s easy! You can get started with a few bucks in less than 2 minutes! When you sign up for Stackin', we’ll ask some simple questions so we can get to know you and your financial picture. We’ll use those answers to recommend one or more investment(s) that may fit you based on your profile. Then, you’ll connect the bank account you want to use to buy your investments and you’ll be on your way to investing in no time!
What Do I need?
Great question! To invest with Stackin’ you need to be at least 18 years old! You’ll also need access to our web app, some basic personal info like your current address and social security number and an active bank account to link to your account and fund your investments!
Why does Stackin' need my bank login info?
In order to invest you'll need to connect your current, active bank account to your investment account! Stackin' never stores your bank login information and uses Plaid to link your account. Plaid is a trusted financial service that allows users to securely connect their bank account. We use Plaid to verify your bank account info and occasionally check your balance to make sure you have enough funds to cover transactions.

Your investments are always safe with Stackin’! All Stackin' investment accounts are held by our custodian DriveWealth, a registered broker-dealer regulated by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA). Your investments are protected up to $500,000 total at DriveWealth, including $250,000 in cash balances through the Securities Investor Protection Corporation (SIPC).

How do I pick what to invest in?

What am I investing in with a Starter Stack?
Each Starter Stack contains a variety of investments, making it an easy way to diversify and invest in the companies you love! The Starter Stack includes companies like Nike, Canopy Growth Corp, Netflix, Amazon, Facebook and more.
Can I withdraw money from my investment account?
Yes! You can transfer money to and from your linked back account by navigating to the “My Invest Account” section of your account page.

Keep in mind that transfers can take up to 7 business days to complete since we have to sell some of your Starter Stack before we can transfer the money out of your investment account!
How do I close my account?

Click on “Transfers”
Click on “Sell & Transfer”
Click on “Sell & Transfer All Funds”
The funds will be returned back to your linked bank account as soon as the proceeds from the sale become available. From there, select “Manage My Account” and then select “Close Account” to close your account and have your money returned to your linked bank account. Please understand that this process can take up to 10 days and email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions!
