How to Set Up an Online ACH Transfer or Wire Transfer from Your Marcus Account

Share this article

Setting up ACH and Wire Transfers online could save you some time. ACH Transfers are safe, they’re available 24/7, fee-free and a confirmation page lets you know that you’ve set one up correctly. Plus, after you’ve authorized a transfer, you can use the Transfer Tracker to follow your funds to know approximately when they’ll reach their destination. Online Wire Transfers are available for up to $10,000 per statement period. To wire more, give us a call. 

To get started, log in at marcus.com or use the Marcus app.

Will I know if I scheduled my online ACH transfer correctly?

You’ll see a confirmation notice that we’ve set up your transfer after you click or tap ‘Confirm.’ Once you do so, your transfer will be initiated, and you can use the Transfer Tracker to follow your funds.

You’ll see a ‘Track My Transfer’ link on your dashboard that allows you to see the progress of your transfer. It will automatically disappear three days after we expect the funds to have arrived, but we’ll save the information in your transaction history.

Note: When you schedule a transfer of $100,000 or less through Marcus by 12 pm ET on a business day, Marcus will complete the transfer by 5 pm ET that day. For outgoing transfers, check with your external bank regarding availability of funds sent by Marcus. For incoming transfers, Marcus will post funds to your account and you’ll start earning interest on the day they’re received, but those funds will remain subject to Marcus’ funds availability timelines.

How to transfer funds from my Online Savings Account into either a high-yield CD or a No-Penalty CD?

If you’d like to move some of the funds in your Marcus Online Savings Account into one of our CDs, the first step is opening up a new CD account, which you can do online or in the app. Once you’ve opened the CD, you’ll be given the option to fund the CD with money from an existing Marcus Account or from your account at another bank.
