Grow Credit uses Plaid as a component of the underwriting process to determine if you’re eligible for a Grow MasterCard. When you apply for a Grow MasterCard, we analyze your data to determine that your linked account is active. We also use that data to determine which account type you are eligible for. Additionally, we use Plaid to process your pre-authorized withdrawal to pay your Grow account for your subscriptions every month, and we are actively working to add other payment options.
