Pay Anyone is this awesome way Chime members can send and receive money fee-free. Up until now, Chime members could only give and get money with friends that had a Chime account. That all changes today.

Because Chime is better with friends, members can spread the love (and money) to anyone regardless if they have a Chime account or not.

Ok, we know what you might be thinking: 

  • “They have to be on Chime to receive money?” Nope. They don’t need to be on Chime or download an app. They can claim funds instantly¹ to their bank account using a valid debit card. 
  • “I still have to use other payment apps.” Again, nope. You can send money to anyone, whether they’re on Chime or not, all within the Chime app.
  • “One of us will be charged a fee.” Gasp, no! Fee-free means no fees to you for sending and no fees for them to claim funds instantly.

So, how does it work exactly?

1. Go to the Pay Anyone tab 

 

2. Find your friend on Chime, or enter email/phone # of someone who isn’t on Chime

 

3. Enter a dollar amount and note (like an emoji)

 

4. Choose “Pay”

 

5. Your friend has 14 days to enter their required info and instantly claim the funds!

1 SpotMe® on Credit is an optional, no interest / no fee overdraft line of credit tied to the Secured Deposit Account available to qualifying members with an active Chime Credit Builder Account. SpotMe on Debit is an optional, no fee overdraft service attached to the Chime Checking Account available to qualifying members after Visa debit card activation. Both SpotMe on Credit and SpotMe on Debit are sometimes collectively referred to as "SpotMe" or, if you have signed up to use SpotMe with only one account, "SpotMe" means the elected service. To qualify for SpotMe, you must receive $200 or more in qualifying direct deposits to your Chime Checking Account each month.

Qualifying members will be allowed to overdraw their Chime Checking Account and/or Secured Deposit Account (associated with your Chime Credit Builder credit card) up to $20, but may be later eligible for a higher limit of up to $200 or more based on Chime account history, direct deposit frequency and amount, spending activity and other risk-based factors. The SpotMe limit will be displayed within the Chime mobile app and is subject to change at any time, at Chime’s sole discretion. Although Chime does not charge any overdraft fees for SpotMe, there may be out-of-network or third-party fees associated with ATM transactions. SpotMe Debit Terms and Conditions and SpotMe on Credit Terms and Conditions.

2 Out-of-network ATM withdrawal fees may apply except at MoneyPass ATMs in a 7-Eleven, or any Allpoint or Visa Plus Alliance ATM.

3 Early access to direct deposit funds depends on the timing of the submission of the payment file from the payer. We generally make these funds available on the day the payment file is received, which may be up to 2 days earlier than the scheduled payment date.

4 Funds are automatically debited from your Checking Account and typically deposited into the recipient’s Checking Account within seconds. Pay Anyone transactions will be monitored and may be held, delayed or blocked if the transfer could result in fraud or another form of financial harm. Sometimes instant transfers can be delayed.
