We take care of the complicated parts, here is a quick breakdown on how you will receive your payments.
Payments are processed as soon as your customer pays and is available in your Stripe balance instantly. Stripe makes deposits (payouts) from your available account balance into your bank account.
When this happens depends on which country you’re operating in. See below for the full payout schedule.
Australia, United States
Payouts of your available account balance are made daily and contain payments processed two business days prior (this is how long it takes for your pending account balance to become available on this schedule). For example, payments received on a Tuesday are paid out by Thursday, and payments received on a Friday are paid out by Tuesday.
Payouts are made daily and contain payments processed four business days prior. For example, payments received on a Monday are paid out by Friday.
All countries except Japan
Payouts are made daily and contain payments processed seven calendar days prior. For example, payments received on a Tuesday are paid out by the following Tuesday.
Payouts are made daily and contain payments processed thirty calendar days prior. For example, payments received on July 1st would be paid out on July 31st.
Payouts are made once a week (on a day of your choosing) and include payments processed between 4-11 days prior. For example, if payouts are scheduled on Wednesdays, your account balance from Sunday of the previous week until Saturday of the previous week are deposited every Wednesday.
Alternative payout schedules
If you would prefer to receive payouts on a fixed schedule, you can choose to have them sent either weekly or monthly in your account’s payout settings. When selecting a weekly schedule, you can specify the day of the week that payments should arrive in your bank account. For a monthly schedule, you can specify the day of the month. Payouts scheduled between the 29th and 31st of the month are sent on the last day of shorter months.
Selecting either a weekly or monthly schedule does not change how long it takes for your pending balance to become available. If your account was previously operating on a 2-day rolling schedule, it still takes two business days for your pending balance to become available. For instance, if a Stripe account changes from 2-day rolling to weekly on Fridays, the available balance includes payments made in the last week before Wednesday.
When you start processing live payments from your customers with Stripe, you will not receive your first payout until 7–10 days after your first successful payment is received. The first payout usually takes a little longer in order to establish the Stripe account. Subsequent payouts are then processed according to your account’s payout schedule.
