Notes and Things to Think About

There are 2 "direct" ways to get money into Giddy.

Bank ACH - Most reliable form today, but it's going to make you wait 5-15 days for the transaction to clear.

Credit Card - Very spotty as some credit card companies refuse to allow crypto transactions and purchases. But if you do get it to work you can withdraw immediately for a small credit card fee.
