To begin investing in US stock, download Passfolio on the App Store or on Google Play. To create a Passfolio account, you’ll need to be 18 years old or older, have a valid ID document (Passport, Driver’s License, National Identity Card, or Residence Permit Card) and have a valid address in your name.
After submitting your information and documents through the app, your application will be reviewed and we'll contact you within 1 business day to let you know if your account was approved. If any information is pending, we'll get in touch by email with instructions on how to send us additional documents.
Once your account is approved, you should be able to fund your account with your local currency - as a global app, we support the following transfer methods: USD paper checks, Wire Transfers, TransferWise, ACH, TEDs, SWIFT, SafetyPay, SEPA and Flutterwave. However, the transfer methods available to you will vary according to your location.
You'll be able to access banking information for the preferred transfer method by accessing the transfer tab within the app.
After having transferred money to your account, your funds may take a day or two to settle. If you have any trouble funding your account, feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Now that you’ve successfully added funds to your account, you can start investing in US stocks. Just access the search tab and search for a company you want to invest in. Then, once you’ve found it, all you have to do is decide how much stock you want to buy.
Passfolio lets you choose to either input how many shares you want to purchase or type in how much you want to invest in USD. Just remember to do your research and only buy stock from companies you believe you should invest in.
