Set up an Auto Savings for your card sales processed through Toast

Take the manual work of depositing funds into your Toast Balance Account out of your day-to-day. Maximize the return on your hard-earned sales by contributing a fixed percentage of your daily card sales processed through Toast into your Toast Balance Account.


Auto Savings deposits into your Toast Balance Account will occur each day after all other scheduled debits are withdrawn (e.g. card processing fees, Toast Capital Loan repayments, Easy Pay repayments, etc.).


  1. Under Your total balance, navigate to your Toast Balance Account number and click on the three dots on the right.

  2. In the menu that appears, click on Edit your daily sales deposit preferences.

  3. Select a desired percentage of daily sales you would like to have automatically deposited into your Toast Balance Account.

    1. It may take up to a day for Auto Savings to start working depending on your restaurant's payment capture and daily deposit settings.

    2. This percentage is applied across all restaurants associated with your business.

Your daily sales contribution percentage is displayed on your Toast Balance dashboard.

Visit our full Toast Balance FAQs here.


Is there a monthly fee?

There is no monthly fee for the Toast Balance Account and there is no minimum balance required.


How much does it cost to transfer funds to and from my account?

There is no fee for ACH transfers into or out of your account.  For wire transfers, there is a fee of $5 for each inbound wire transfer.  This fee will be refunded within 10 business days if (1) your wire transfer is made during the first month your account is open, or (2) if your wire transfer is for $100,000 or more.  There is a fee of $25 for each outbound wire transfer.


Is there a limit to the percentage of sales I can divert to the Toast Balance Account?

There is no limit.  The transfer will occur each day after all other scheduled debits are withdrawn (e.g. Toast Capital repayments).  If remaining funds after all scheduled debits are deducted equate to less than the percentage you set for your daily deposit transfer, all remaining funds will be swept to your Toast Balance account effectively reducing the % of daily sales diverted.


Can I overdraft my Toast Balance Account with a purchase?

No. We don’t currently offer overdraft protection. If you attempt a transaction for more money than you have, it will get declined.


Who can access the Toast Balance Account?

At this time, only the person who applied for the account can access it on Toast Web.  Future upgrades in the first part of 2024 will add the capability for authorized users to also access the account.
