How long before delivery do you pay the balance?

The Plaid thing is super sketchy - they want our banking login credentials? F*** that. You should NEVER give that out. Tesla's encouragement of that makes me deeply question their security practices. (Then again, I've no reason to believe other automakers are any better about information security.)
Well I’m f***ed. I used the plaid online system to pay for my car and so far nothing sketchy. In fact Tesla wasnt able to pull money from that account and gave me a call 3 days after I took delivery to ask for new payment info. Then they waited another 3 business days to call me back and get my new account info to take the money out.

If anyone is uncomfortable with the Plaid thing but want Tesla to pull the money from your bank account, just give Tesla billing a call. They only ask for routing and account number over phone

Change your bank password that you gave Plaid, and then make sure they didn't do anything with your bank account. Then you should be good and safe. 👍
