WooCommerce Payments provides a facility for eligible accounts to request an instant deposit of some or all of the account’s balance. After requesting an instant deposit, money will arrive on a connected debit card within minutes instead of potentially days. Instant deposits can be completed any time, including nights, weekends, and holidays.
This document explains when instant deposits will be available and how to request an instant deposit.

Request an instant deposit ↑ Back to top
To request an instant deposit:
- Go to Payments > Overview
- Click Instant deposit button in the top right corner
- Click Deposit now
The Instant deposit button will display for accounts that are eligible for instant deposits. If you do not see the instant deposit button, please confirm your account meets the eligibility criteria. If the button is visible but appears disabled in grey, then the balance may not be within the Deposit Limits.
Deposit limits ↑ Back to top
Unlike scheduled deposits, there is both a minimum and maximum deposit amount that can be processed through an instant deposit.
The minimum instant deposit amount is $50 per deposit. The maximum is $1,000 per day. Multiple instant deposits can be issued within these limits in a single day.
If the minimum limit has not been reached, or if the maximum limit has been exceeded, the button will be disabled and will not be able to be clicked on to open the instant deposit dialog.
