Payout Frequency — How often will you get paid?
To receive funds for payments you’ve processed, Stripe makes deposits (payouts) of your available account balance into your bank account.
Once you start processing with Stripe, your first payout is made 7–10 days after your first successful payment is received. Subsequent payouts are then processed according to your account’s payout schedule.
You can select to receive payouts on a rolling basis (every day), or in batches once a week or once a month.
Viewing your Account Balance
You can view your account balance (all of your payouts and how much money you are owed) through the Payment tab on your OpenSports group page.
OpenSports will also generate a monthly report indicating all revenue collected for the period. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more about this.
