Notes

ℹ️ The money for this rule will be taken from your account on the next business day after your payday, so it stays safe and sound in case something goes wrong with your payment.

⚠️ If you want your Pay Days rule to work correctly, don't wait until the last minute to set it up or make changes. If you do it right before you're supposed to get paid, it might not work as planned. So, set it up a bit earlier to make sure it goes smoothly.

👉 Please note that any Overdraft settings you have in place do not influence the Pay Days rule. The Pay Day operates based on the fixed amount you have selected within the Plum app.

This means that the deposit will be executed regardless of your bank balance or other factors that may affect different rules like the Automatic one.

The weekly depositor is included in the Basic (free) plan of our app. It’s available in the UK and all the EU countries.
