There are three transaction methods available when lending on the Steward platform:

Wire Transfer

Wire is a method of transferring money from one financial institution to another. Wire transfers must be initiated manually with your bank and clear upon receipt. Your bank may charge an additional fee for every transfer.

Wire payment is currently available to lenders in the United States.

Steward Wallet

As a Steward lender, you have access to a unique digital wallet, which holds the returns of your participations when they are paid out. Money held in your wallet can be re-loaned to another project.

Steward may also accept some payments by check - if you are unable to pay by one of our electronic methods, please reach out to our team at support@gosteward.com and we'll help you complete your loan participation.
