Manual Deposits through instant deposits getting cancelled?


I’ve been trying to make instant deposits to top up my plum account which seem to go through ok but then within maybe an hour the Plum app reports them as cancelled and the balance gets reduced to before the deposit.

I’ve tried a few times and it continues to do it, can anyone advise if I’m doing something wrong? I use Natwest for banking.

Hi @Kristoffa87 :wave:

I am sorry about that.

Currently we are facing some issues when it come to Instant deposits , our team is working to fix this problem. In the meantime, I would suggest you to use the direct debit for your future transactions until we resolve it.

​Thank you!


Hi Georgios,

Thanks for the quick reply, I have reverted to Direct Debit in the meantime.



You are welcome Chris :blush:

Hello I had the same problem where I made 2 manual deposits on the same day and I was waiting for it to arrive in my pockets a day or 2 later but when I go back to check it tells me that I have no money in my pockets. The money was taken out of my account but it’s no where to be seen? I would of thought it the money deposit was cancelled I would get my money back straight into my actual account? Some please help me thanks.

Hi @Aceaziz :wave:

I have sent you a DM regarding this. Can you check your inbox please?

Thank you!

It still isn’t fixed, because I have the same issue now, which is why I did a manual deposit, which has also proved to be problematic. Now I can’t withdraw my money that has cleared into the pocket

Hi Helen,

I have sent you a DM so we look into this together.

Thank you!

Hi There,
Can I check if there is still an issue here?

When I go to do an instant transfer and it transfers to my bank I get a “wrong username” message from my bank which is not correct.

Any help appreciated as I would like to move money into plum quicker than DD


Hi Richard,

Could you DM me your full name, date of birth and the email which is linked to your Plum account so we check this together?

Thank you! :blush:


Not sure how to DM via this platform? Also by providing such detail to some random I can’t be sure you are legit?

Hi Richard,

In this case, could you contact us via ‘chat to human’ in the app, or by emailing please? Our support team will be happy to assist you.

Thank you!

I’m having the same issue made instant deposit into my pocket ac but the funds are no where to be seen showing bal of £0

Pls I need help

Hi, ive made a deposit of 200 to put on investments last Nov 24, until now it hasnt been invested. pending investments is gbp 251.41 thats been pending for 2 weeks now! However, a later transaction of around gbp59 has been invested already. Can you help me out with this pls, i emailed already but support says they have no eta and they cannot do anything else besides updating me when there is anything new. i have asked to just withdraw the money if this takes any longer and they said i cannot do that as well. i do not think this is fair to me, that i cannot get my investment anytime i want.

I am having the same issue - neither instant deposits or direct debits appear to work. I don’t know if I’m trying to transfer too large an amount and my bank is refusing it?
