Once you have added all accounts needed to qualify for your loan, please select which accounts you would like to share by checking the checkbox to the right of each account. Once all desired accounts are Linked, click Finish & Share to complete the process! Your lender will notify you if you need to log back in and provide further information.

If you could not connect your financial institution within our automatic portal, you can provide them manually to us in the following ways:

  • Digital e-statement from your financial institution(s) online banking platform
  • Scanned printed statements from your financial institution(s)

Note: We need the actual bank statement with all pages listed, even if the last page is blank. We cannot use screenshots. We need a statement for each bank account you have.

Uploading Digital E-statement

Login to your financial institution’s online platform (preferably on your desktop)

Typically, there should be a section under your account that says “Documents” or “Statements.” Below are two examples of how it might look:

On this page, you should be able to select the statements you would like to download by either a download icon (arrow pointing down) or selecting the check box next to the two months of statements you would like to download. An example of how it might look:

When you click the download button, you will need to save these as a PDF to your computer.

How do I provide my income documentation?

As the loan application is being filled out, we need 30 days of pay stubs for your loan application.  There are three ways to upload your income documentation:

  • Automatically syncing your payroll provider within the app (ideal scenario)
  • Digital pay stub PDF from your payroll provider
  • Scanned printed pay stub

Syncing within the App

You can connect automatically within our app, or you can opt to manually enter the information.

By selecting “Automatic Check” a screen will then load where you will be presented with a search menu. You can search for your employer.

As you type, the search engine will produce a list of close matches. 

Click on your employer’s name and click Continue.

Next you will be asked to select your Payroll Provider. Click on the provider name. After reviewing permissions, click Continue to pull up the login page

Once the login page is displayed, enter your payroll provider credentials to sign in. Because your security is our highest priority, your login credentials are never visible to anyone and are encrypted to ensure confidentiality. If you do not know your login credentials, use the “reset now” link below the submit button.

If you could not connect your payroll platform within our automatic portal, you can provide the following documentation manually to us:

  • Digital pay stub PDF from your payroll provider
  • Scanned printed pay stub

Note: We need a full 30 days of pay stubs, so if the last two payroll cycles are less than 30 days, please pull an additional pay stub. We need the actual PDF download, we cannot use screenshots.

Uploading Digital Pay stub PDF

Login to your payroll provider offered by your employer, such as ADP or UKG
Find your pay statement, typically under “Pay” and “Pay History.” Pay History will allow you to capture more than one pay stub, as we need 30 days. An example of how it might look:

How do I scan documents within the mobile app?

Uploading required documentation for your mortgage application is necessary to ensure your loan can move forward. This process can be done in one of two ways:

  1. From the web dashboard
  2. From the mobile app

Both options are perfectly fine, but they have unique aspects to it worth mentioning. Uploading a document from a mobile device has you create the document file as you go through the process using our mobile scanner feature, whereas the Web Dashboard will require the documents already be scanned in and saved to the computer being used.

Using the Mobile App, uploading documents starts by selecting the ‘Add Document’ as shown below.

add document

From Add Document, select the option that is needed to make sure you get the document uploaded.

  • Take a Picture – Start the process of getting the document(s) to your
  • Send a File – Select a file on your phone if the document is already on the
  • Drafts & Sent – Resume sending a document that you’ve already started the process with

As we are starting the process, select the ‘Take Picture’ option. (nothing will be saved to your phone)

take picture

First you will need to name the document you are uploading. There is a list of options already you can select if you find the document name that you are uploading. If you don’t see the title of the document you are uploading, you are able to name it whatever you would like. Once the document name is intact, select ‘OK’ to continue.

click ok

A scan mode option will then be displayed. Most cases, ‘Recommended setting’ works just fine for all documents, but for color documents, such as licenses and IDs, we have a ‘Requested in Color’ option for that. Choose the scan type and click ‘OK.’

scan mode

A set of scanning instructions will be shown giving the user tips on how to properly scan the document. Your camera will then turn on letting you take the photo of the document. When you have the document fully lined up properly, select the middle button on the bottom option to take the scan.

scan crop

Once the scan is taken, there will be a cropping tool that will let you make any adjustments needed. Once the adjustments are made, select the ‘Crop’ option to continue. If you need to take a scan of the document again though, you are able to click ‘Back’ to retake the scan of the document.

scan crop back

Next will be a contrast adjustment filter to make sure the document is clearly legible. Once you can read it clearly, select ‘Done’ to finalize these edits.

adjust contrast

After completing the edits to the scan, there will be a review page where you give a final approval on the document. If the document looks great, you can click ‘Send’ to upload the document to your account profile. If the document has more than one page, you can instead click the ‘Add Page’ option to scan the next page, where you can repeat this process until you have the full document ready to upload.

send

Once you are done, select the ‘Send Securely’ button to upload the document. You will get a confirmation once the document has upload successfully, and you can then close out of the app, or you can instead just click the ‘OK’ button that would appear to go back to the home page of your app.

send securely

Final notes: Scanning your documents in via the app is secure. Also, the scanned documents are not saved on your phone like they would be if you take a picture and send them in via email.
