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.

Payout schedule for groups in Canada:

Payouts contain payments processed seven calendar days prior. For example, payments received on a Tuesday are paid out by the following Tuesday.

IMPORTANT: If players sign up and pay for your event over multiple days, you will receive the payout seven days after EACH day that tickets were purchased. For example, if you have a game on Saturday, and players purchase tickets for it on Thurs ($30 of tickets purchased), Fri ($40 of tickets purchased), and Sat ($20 of tickets purchased), that means on the next Thursday, you will receive your $30, on the next Friday you will receive your $40 and on the next Saturday, you will receive your $20.

From your Group’s page (Web or App), click on the Payment tab > click “View Account Balance”
Here, you can see all of your payouts and how much money you are owed.
