External Account

You can link your checking or savings account to an account you have at another bank. Doing so lets you easily transfer funds between your accounts.

Learn how to link an external account online.

Mobile Deposit

Deposit a check from anywhere in the U.S. and U.S. territories with Mobile Deposit. Follow these steps on our mobile app to snap a picture of your check:

Go to the Capital One Mobile app and select your account.

Click on “deposit” next to the camera icon.

Take photos of the front and back of your check (please write "for Capital One mobile deposit" and sign your name on the back of the check prior to taking your picture).

Follow the prompts to fill out the deposit amount and, if you’d like, a memo.
Slide your finger across the green button to complete your deposit.

ATM Deposit

If you live near a Capital One Café or Capital One bank location, you can make a check deposit at an ATM at that location. Find nearby locations

Direct Deposit 

You can set up direct deposit by giving your Capital One account number and routing number to your employer. You can find that information either:

In the app: Sign in and select your bank account. Scroll down to “account Info” and select “show more.”

You can also set up direct deposit by form. Print out our blank direct deposit form, fill in your information and give it to your employer.

Instead of visiting an ATM or branch, use Add Cash in Store

Add cash to your eligible checking account at any CVS® location in the U.S.

  1. Visit any participating CVS®. Note that this is not available at any CVS Pharmacy® at Target stores.
  2. In your Capital One app, choose which eligible checking account you'd like to add cash to and enter the amount. For each account, the monthly limit for adding cash in store is $4995 or no more than 5 transactions per month. The daily limit is $999.
  3. Generate your barcode. For your security, each barcode can only be used once, and it will expire after 30 minutes.
  4. Tell the CVS® cashier you'd like to add cash to your Capital One account, and then show them the barcode.
  5. Give your cash to the cashier and they'll give you a receipt. Please keep your receipt.

This money will be available right away for you to use. You’ll receive an email confirmation when the transaction is finished. You will also see it in your list of recent transactions within one business day.
