Using POLi - Common Queries

When using POLi you are safely logging into your bank account to make a your bank transfer directly from Stake.   All your security features of your bank account apply, including second-factor authentication and any transaction limits you have set up. 

With POLi a pop-up will appear that asks you for your bank credentials and pre-populates the payment form for you to make a direct transfer to Stake with OFX who then moves your money to your USD trading account.

As you are securely accessing your bank, if you have second-factor authentication set up at your bank you will be required to confirm your transfer - this adds another layer of security to your transaction.  Similarly, any limits set up at your bank will apply. You should check this with your bank if you run into any issues.
