Cancel a transfer to or from the Cash Account

Cancel transfers scheduled through Wealthfront

If you schedule a one-time transfer through our website or app, you usually have a small window of time — minutes or hours — to cancel it. This window of time varies depending on if you initiate the transfer during business hours.

If you schedule a recurring transfer through our website or app, you can usually cancel the entire series at least 1 business day before the next transfer in the series is initiated.

You can cancel a pending transfer on our website or our app for iOS or Android.

On web:

  1. Tap Transfer money
  2. Tap View scheduled transfers 
  3. Tap Cancel

  1. Tap the transfer button (looks like 2 arrows)

This also applies to direct deposits from your employer and with payments scheduled with apps like Cash App, Venmo, or PayPal.
