Managing your HCP Money Balance:

You must fund your HCP Money account before you can make purchases with your Expense Cards.

There are 2 main ways to fund your HCP Money account:

  1. Transferring money from an external bank account

  2. Setting up a minimum balance.

Minimum balance: What is it? How do I set it up?

The minimum balance feature diverts card payments you take within Housecall Pro into your HCP Money account. Diverting some of your payments that would normally be sent to your regular bank account keeps your HCP Money account balance at a target minimum amount that you set.

Using a minimum balance makes it easy to maintain sufficient funds without having to manually transfer money from a bank account into your HCP Money account. When your balance is below the amount you have set, we will automatically reload your available balance by sending money from your card payouts into your HCP Money account.

To set your minimum balance:

  1. Go to My Money in the top navigation bar

  2. Click HCP Money in the left-hand navigation bar

  3. Click the Add Funds button from any page in HCP Money, or visit the Funding page in the left navigation menu under HCP Money

  4. In the Add Funds popup, beneath Where would you like to add funds from? select Set up a minimum balance using HCP credit card payments

  5. Enter your desired minimum balance and click Set balance

You’re all set - we will send your credit card payments to your HCP Money account until your targeted minimum balance has been reached, at which point all credit card payments will be sent to the external bank account they’re regularly sent to.

If HCP Money balance is below the targeted minimum balance you set it to, and you receive a credit card payment larger than that difference, we will “split” the credit card payment such that your minimum balance is reached, and all excess funds from the credit card payment are sent to your regular bank account.

To edit or turn off your current minimum balance:

  1. Go to My Money in the top navigation bar

  2. Click HCP Money in the left-hand navigation bar

  3. Click Funding in the left-hand navigation bar

  4. Click the pencil icon next to the minimum balance line

  5. When prompted by the dialog, you can either delete the minimum balance by pressing Delete or edit it by changing the amount set as the minimum

  6. Confirm your selection. The Funding page should now reflect your updated selection


How do I transfer money from my external bank account to my HCP Money account?

You can either transfer money from the external bank account connected to your payments account, or you can add an additional external bank account. To transfer money from an additional external bank account, you must first add the bank account information. Follow these steps to add an account:

  1. Go to My Money in the top navigation bar

  2. Click HCP Money in the left-hand navigation bar

  3. Toggle the arrow in the left-hand navigation bar to expand the menu

  4. Select either Cards or Funding in the sub-menu.

  5. Click the Add Funds button

  6. Select Add another bank account and click Connect.

  7. You will then be redirected to another page where, through our partnership with Plaid, you will provide your bank information to safely and securely connect your account.

Once you’ve connected your external bank account, you will be able to transfer funds to your HCP Money account.

Transferring funds from your external bank account

Once you have connected an external bank account, you will be able to make one-time or recurring bank transfers.

To edit or cancel your transfer schedule, simply return to the Funding page.

To transfer money directly to your HCP Money account, follow these steps:

  1. Click the Add Funds button from any HCP Money page, or visit the “Funding” page in the left navigation of the HCP Money menu

  2. Select My bank account as the place to initiate a deposit from

  3. Enter the amount you’d like to transfer

  4. Select the frequency of your deposit:

    • A one-time deposit will be initiated on the same day

    • If you want to set up recurring deposits, please select the frequency (every week or every two weeks) as well as the date you would like to start the deposits. Recurring deposits will be scheduled to start on the first day you specify, and then occur as scheduled (every week, or every two weeks) until you edit or cancel them

  5. Click Add Funds and then confirm your choice
    Note: funds can take up to 4 business days to process and be available for Expense Cards purchases

To edit or delete a recurring transfer:

  1. Go to My Money in the top navigation bar

  3. Click Funding in the left-hand navigation bar

  4. Click the pencil icon next to the funding schedule
