One of the leading banking institutions in the world, Chase offers online and retail banking, credit cards, mortgage and home equity loans and investment products in more than 60 countries. Chase allows its banking customers to transfer money from an outside account to an existing Chase account, which gives them an easy way to fund an existing or new account or pay another person without having to use cash or a check.


Deposit or Wire Transfer

Chase permits a customer to transfer money into a Chase account via check, cash deposit or wire transfer. The customer can deposit a check or cash through a Chase bank branch or automated teller machine. Or can use the Quick Deposit feature on the Chase mobile app to deposit checks by taking a picture of the check. Chase also allows wire transfers from outside accounts. Some Chase accounts charge an incoming wire fee. For example, the Chase Total Checking account charges $15 for incoming wire fees, with no charge for wire transfers from another Chase account.


Chase QuickPay

The Chase QuickPay program lets a Chase customer send or receive money from another person and is another option for transferring money to a Chase account. When the customer receives an alert for an incoming payment, she logs into her Chase account or Chase mobile app, clicks on the "accept payment" button, and Chase deposits the money into her account. To enroll, the customer logs into her Chase account and signs up for QuickPay, found under the "Payments and Transfers" tab.
