Once you have successfully deposited or transferred money in your iFlip app, then you are ready to invest in a Smartfolio. The steps you take to invest in a Smartfolio are identical to the steps you take when investing in an individual stock. Here is the process you will want to follow:
Step 1: Log into your iFlip app
Step 2: Tap "Start Trading" ... (If you're on the mobile app locate the yellow 'Start Trading' button at the bottom of your screen. If you're on the web app, then this button is located in the top right-hand corner)
Step 3: Make sure "AI Smartfolios" or "Algorithms" is selected at the top of the screen.
Step 4: Each card you see on this screen represents a different Smartfolio. Each one has its own unique set of stocks and AI built into it. Simply tap the one that you want to invest in.
- If you're on the mobile app, at the bottom of your screen tap the "Trade" button. At the top of your screen make sure the 'Invest' button is selected, then enter the amount you want to invest and tap the yellow arrow button to advance to the preview screen.
- If you're on the web app, in the top right-hand side of your screen you'll see a box that looks a lot like the image below. Simply enter the amount you want to invest then select the 'Review Order' button.
Step 6: Tap the 'Submit' button to complete your order
**Note: iFlips Smartfolios run every day on the open at 9:30am (EST). This is the time of which the A.I. decides if it wants to buy, sell or hold the stocks that are built inside each Smartfolio. With that being said, if you invest money into a Smartfolio during normal trading hours, then your funds will remain in "pending cash" until the following trading day when the A.I. technology properly distributes the funds accordingly.**
