How to initiate a withdrawal
In order to send funds from your Circle Invest account to a linked bank account, you will need to make sure you have USD in your Invest account. For example, if your entire Circle Invest balance is held in BTC, you will need to sell some or all of your Bitcoin holdings in order to hold US Dollars that you will then be able to cash out.
To sell, tap on any of the digital currencies that you hold, tap on Sell, choose the dollar amount that you would like to sell, and then tap on Sell again.
Once you have a USD balance, go to the Portfolio section of your Invest account (the middle tab on the bottom of the app), scroll down and tap on Withdraw. Choose the dollar amount that you would like to withdraw, then tap Withdraw.
How to check that the withdrawal process has started
You can confirm that the withdrawal process has started by scrolling down to Recent Activity on the Portfolio screen of the app. Withdrawals in process will show as “Withdrawing USD” and completed withdrawals will show as “Withdrew USD.”
It usually takes between 1 - 5 business days for a withdrawal to process and arrive into your receiving bank account.
Note: For now, you can only withdraw back to your bank account. We don't support sending or receiving from external blockchain addresses at this time. For more information, have a look at this article.
