You just completed the Trove registration process, ready to start trading.

You need money to start trading, therefore you have to fund your account with at less N1000 (if you’re a Nigerian). I personally would prefer my account 100% verified before proceeding on the funding account, because an unverified account can’t deposit using the card payment option until the account is verified.

But notwithstanding, the steps below will show you how to fund a Trove account and start trading instantly.

How to Fund Trove Account with Trove App

Step 1: Make sure that you are in your account dashboard already. If you’re making use of the app, you should see the “ADD FUND” link with a forward arrow.

Step 2: Select your preferred funding method (either Bank Transfer or Card Payment).

The fund transfer method: means you will transfer money from your bank account to your Trove account. An account number will be generated for your Trove acct to transfer money into will display on your screen (after you click on proceed).

While Card Payment: means you will be funding your Trove wallet using either a Verva card, Master Card, or Visa card.
A calculator will display to you for you to understand how much will be charged from your card as Trove’s Processing fee.

Select any method you prefer and click on the “Proceed” button.

Step 3: In no time – you should see your account credited if your account is already verified.

How to Fund Trove from Trove’s treading website

Step I Login to your account.

Step 2: You should see the PLUS “+” icon beside the wallet balance and the portfolio. However, you should click the “+” icon behind the “Wallet Balance.

Before even thinking of funding your account ensure that your account profile is 100% complete.

Funding account might take time to reflect in your account especially if your account is not verified yet.
