Is there any info out there on what FirstBank considers qualified Direct Deposits? I’ve checked out the “List Of Methods Banks Count As Direct Deposits” (https://www.doctorofcredit.com/knowledge-base/list-methods-banks-count-direct-deposits/#FirstBank) but nothing. I’m curious if deposits from the following have worked: Venmo, Chase, Wells Fargo, Transferwise, Paypal, etc.
I haven’t found any recent info and I don’t have any first hand experience with the bank since I’m not in the eligible states.
