Frequently Asked Questions

What happens if I can’t pay Dave back?

Your next payday is when you pay the Advanced cash back. If it can’t figure out which is your payday, it will pick the closest Friday. The same applies if your payday is once a month or more. In the same way, you can change the date, but if you don’t pay back, your account may be suspended.

Is there any fee for using Dave Banking?

For using Dave Banking, there’s a $1 fee. Also, you can give tips when you can just to show your appreciation. But these tips aren’t necessary. Dave offers $75 paycheck advance loans, so you don’t have to worry about interest. For example, if you use Dave to get $75 for groceries a few days before payday, you’ll only have to pay Dave $75 back. 

Can You Use Dave Banking on your Desktop?

The desktop app looks very similar to the mobile app, so it’s easy to navigate both. But you have to download the application, not just visit the website.

Can Dave Banking Help You Build Credit?

It’s not clear. As part of its $75 interest-free loan offering, Dave Banking doesn’t perform a credit check. After taking out the loans, users must repay $75. Occasionally, this information is sent to each of the three major credit bureaus (Experian, TransUnion, and Equifax), but that is not guaranteed.
