Before you proceed
Here, we will be providing all the things you must check at least once before you proceed with the cancellation procedure.
1. Check/ Cancel Direct Deposits
A lot of users opt for the direct deposit feature, which is also supported by major financial institutions, banks like Varo bank.
Direct deposit is a mode of transfer where users can ask the employer to receive the paycheck amount directly in their bank accounts.
If you are getting direct deposits on your Varo bank account regularly, you might have to consider it once if you have decided to cancel the Varo account.
You will have to ask your employer about changing the receiving-account details for the direct deposit. And if you do not submit a different account for the direct deposit, you might face delays in your direct deposit arrival.
We will highly suggest you consider your direct deposit settings before proceeding.
2. Transfer Funds from Varo Account
Varo bank lets users store funds in the account, which can be accessed for online or offline purchases. If you are a Varo user, you must have funds left in your Varo account.
Well, Varo won’t close your account with funds in it. But, before even initiating the procedure to cancel Varo account, you must transfer the remaining funds from your Varo account.
Varo account only allows bank to bank ACH money transfer. That means that the transfer of the funds will take around 3 to 5 days to settle in your other bank account.
This is the only way out. Transfer the funds to a different bank account.
You can use your Zelle app to transfer funds from Varo to a different bank account.
3. Clear Varo Advance Pending Amount
As some of you may already know, Varo has a money advance feature named – Varo Advance, which can be used by users to borrow a small amount of money from Varo.
This comes very handy if the user needs a small amount of money to complete a purchase. Varo Advance spots money without any interest amount, and for smaller amounts, users don’t have to pay the fee also.
Varo Advance asks the user to return the borrowed amount in the stated period. And if you haven’t returned the amount yet and try to cancel the Varo account, you won’t be able to do that.
You are required to clear the pending amount in the Varo Advance feature.

A lot of users also set up recurring payments with their Varo bank account. Well, it is easy to do, and you do not have to care much about making payments to your multiple subscriptions or accounts.
And if you have set up recurring payments with a Varo account, you must consider changing and removing them from your Varo account. After canceling the Varo account, you won’t be able to make payments automatically. For obvious reasons.
5. Clear/ Cancel pending payment
Sometimes, if you are to receive any payments and those are in a pending state from the sender’s end, or even a transaction is pending from your end, you won’t be able to access it if your Varo account gets canceled in between.
So, before canceling your Varo account, you must clear the pending payment from your end. And if you have nothing to do with the incoming pending payment; you can choose to cancel it as well.
6. Inform your contacts
You can proceed with canceling your Varo account after considering the five steps, as mentioned earlier. But, we suggest informing your contacts who might transfer the money to your Varo account.
