One of our users, @digiSal , was able to successfully link Envel to privacy.com by contacting them and requesting to link a specific Envelope to privacy.com, without using Plaid (just by providing the account/routing numbers). This isn’t guaranteed to work for everyone, but I thought it was worth sharing as I was very excited to see someone link privacy.com to Envel! If you try this method, I would love to hear whether you had success or not.
Remember that if you have vendors and accounts that aren’t accepting your Envel acct/routing numbers, you can always
- Use your debit card to pay (in the case of vendors)
- Link both accounts to Venmo, Paypal, or Cash app, and transfer funds through these third party apps.
