Request for Payment gives you the ability to make instant deposits 24/7 from your mobile banking app or other bank portal to fund your brokerage account. Funds deposited via Request for Payment are immediately available for trading.
Interactive Brokers is the first brokerage in the US to offer the Request for Payment service to select clients. We currently support deposits from J.P. Morgan Chase bank accounts. If you are a J.P.
