There are two payment methods available on Cowrywise. These payment options are flexible for use based on preference.
You can save and invest with your debit card or bank transfer.

Card Payment Method

The ease of automation can be activated using this method. Such that, you can set your plan as daily, weekly or monthly. You can also select the specific day of the week or month you want.
