Yes, providing that the account owner authorizes the debits beforehand.

Scott, Plaid doesn't do ACH "Pull" (withdraw) or "Push" (deposit).

Brian, can you elaborate on what you mean by, "providing that the account owner authorizes the debits beforehand". Is this simply your way of saying that we must have formal permission from the account owner, or is there some kind of micro-deposit verification, or something else completely.

Right, by law we must have the account owner authorize any debits. This can be done through challenge deposits, legal agreements, or live account auth like Plaid Auth. We're exploring how we can use any/all of these methods to provide the best possible ux while ensuring security and compliance.
