2. Add money fee is waived at participating ACE Cash Express locations if you have received a qualifying direct deposit (no dollar minimum) within the immediately preceding thirty-five (35) days. Offer subject to change. See store for details. Porte uses the Netspend Network, which is provided by Netspend Corporation. Netspend is a licensed provider of money transfer services (NMLS ID: 932678). Netspend's licenses and related information may be found at www.netspend.com/licenses. Fees, limits, and other restrictions may be imposed by Netspend and other third parties in connection with use of the Netspend Network.
3. No ATM owner surcharge or ATM Cash Withdrawal Fees for domestic ATM withdrawals at MoneyPass® ATMs (“in-network ATMs”). Visit the Porte Mobile App for a list of in-network ATMs. All other ATMs may apply an owner’s surcharge fee in addition to the ATM Cash Withdrawal Fee disclosed in your Deposit Account Agreement.

Make up to $500 in fee-free cash withdrawals per day from your Porte account by using your debit card at participating ACE Cash Express locations. $500 total is calculated based on all withdrawals performed at all ACE Cash Express locations visited in a day. A direct deposit (no dollar minimum) to the account within the immediately preceding thirty-five (35) days is required. See store for details.

5. Faster funding claim is based on a comparison of our policy of making funds available upon receipt of payment instruction versus the typical banking practice of posting funds at settlement. Fraud prevention restrictions may delay availability of funds with or without notice. Early availability of funds requires payor’s support of direct deposit and is subject to the timing of payor’s payment instruction.
6. After selecting a charity through your Mobile App, Populus Financial Group will donate an amount equal to 0.05% of every debit card purchase transaction, subject to certain terms and conditions described in the mobile app, made with your Porte Debit Card to a charity selected by you through the Mobile App. Netspend, Pathward, National Association, and Visa are not affiliated in any way with this offer and do not endorse or sponsor this offer.

Need Immediate Assistance

I just started using the Porte app. I have been very pleased with the app and it’s features! However today I have been locked out of my app since this morning! By the grace of God I was able to transfer my paycheck to my other account however this was my rent !! I spoke with 3 wonderful representatives however no one was able to assist me with transferring funds or even the ability to transfer funds through the phone system. I love the app however it is crucial that Porte have a back up method in place just in case the app crashes and we need to access funds from the app. I was not aware that i could only access my funds through the app and not go online through a browser. I was not aware I could not access services to my account like , transfer monies etc and I was not aware that customers service would not have the ability to help me access my account at ALL ! I was told I have to wait 2-3 business days and this matter has been escalated. I am devastated because I left Chase Bank for this app and now I understand the importance of choosing banking services. As a single mother this is not good.

Horrible experience

When I first opened my account, I didn’t experience any issues other than being unable to use Zelle or any other money transferring app. Recently my account somehow was compromised and money was withdrawn close so to $200 was taken. Keep in mind I don’t share my account information with anybody and only used it for everyday expenses. Getting a hold of a representative was extremely difficult, the phone number provided both online and on the app would ring and an automated recording would hang up on its own after asking for language preferences. When I finally got a hold of an agent, I had to call several times back; they immediately blocked my card with no option for temporary freezing, and left me with absolutely no money, I’ve tried generating a virtual card and it won’t even add to my Apple Pay so I can’t use it, I’ve tried linking 3 separate banks to transfer funds and only one worked but amazingly would not show up on the application leaving me still unable to use my money. The customer support offered little to no help, the only thing done for my situation was that a new card was ordered and the fraudulent transactions are currently being investigated which I was told could take up to 49 days, I’m left with no money and absolutely no type of access to my funds. Overall I would recommend opening an actual bank account so that you don’t have to face the same circumstances I currently find myself in.

Mobile app, error messages

I have made several attempts to
Access my porte checking account by installing the port mobile app on my iPhone 13 Pro Max.
When I open the app and make attempts to enter email and password, an error messages appears on the screen of the mobile app
I tried again, and I had the same error message appear on the screen, indicating there is an issue with this app.
Try again later for the last four days I have had this issue.
When I call customer service representatives, they are not able to provide IT support.
No technical assistance is available through the customer service.
I have no way to monitor my checking account unless I call the number on the back of the debit card and they give me a instructions on how to create an account and the error message appeared on the screen of the app while I was on the phone with the Porte representative.
after several bad attempts trying to access my checking account through the Porte mobile app I have decided withdraw all of my funds from this checking account and never do business with Porte checking account ever again
