Applying for a Viably Business account is simple and only takes a few minutes. You will need to provide information about you as the applicant as well information about business.

If you don't know your EIN (employer identification number) off the top of your head, go ahead and find it now before applying. The EIN is like your business' social security number. And if you are doing business in your own name, you can provide your social security number instead of an EIN on the business portion of the application.

Once you are ready, go to the Cash page and click the Apply for Viably account button on the top right.

Then you fill out the requested information, review the final summary and submit the application for review. Unless more information is needed, your bank account will be approved in less than 5 minutes.

After submission, you will need to enable multi-factor authentication which will add an additional layer of security to your account.

Multi-factor Authentication

There are two ways to setup multi-factor authentication for your Viably account. You can choose to receive a text message with a 6-digit verification number or you can use an authentication app such as Google Authenticator. Download for free from Google Play or Apple Store.

If you select the SMS route, enter your mobile number to receive your verification code.

Enter the 6-digit code to complete the authentication process.

If you elect to use an authenticator app you will need to scan the QR code to link your authenticator app with your Viably account which will then generate a temporary 6-digit code within the authenticator app which you can enter into your Viably account to complete the login process.

Regardless of which authentication method you chose, once entered and confirmed, your Viably account will be setup for two-factor/multi-factor authentication. This means going forward you will receive a SMS every time you login and you will need to enter the new code to complete the login process. This will ensure you are the only one accessing your account. This will be last step needed to complete your Viably account application.

Once approved, you will see your new Viably account in purple in the ribbon on the top of the Cash page.

Once your account is setup, go ahead and fund your account and setup your Viably cards.
