How do I add a credit or debit card to my Lenny account?
- Go to your settings page
- Navigate to “Banks & Cards”
- Select “Edit payment methods”
- Select “add a New Account”
- Choose “Debit” or “Credit” card
- Add your card information.
Once you add the card, you can set it as your primary funding source in the “Banks and Cards” section by selecting “Edit payment methods” and clicking on the desired funding source. This will ensure that the card is set as your default for any payments you send to other users.
I added my debit card and it says I'll be charged a 3% fee. Why?
Payments using debit cards from some small banks are subject to a 3% fee due to the high processing rates involved. We make sure to clearly notify you of this when you add cards falling into these categories so that you’re aware of it and don’t see an unexpected fee on your transactions.
Why was my card charged $0 - $1 when I added it to Lenny?
Sometimes when people add a card to Lenny, they’ll see a small line item on their debit/credit card statement that the amount could be either $0 or $1. This is a temporary authorization that we run on your account to confirm that the details you entered are correct. It’s important to note that this is not an actual charge to your account. When we create this authorization, we immediately cancel it so that you can use this money again.
Card limit: Why can't I add another card to my account?
Lenny places a limit on the number of accounts a user can add to their account for security measures. Users can have 3 cards in their account at any given time, once you add a card it counts against your limit for a 6-month rolling period.
