Stripe is one of the most popular payment processing and merchant services providers, allowing companies both small and large to accept credit card payments easily. But now that you can accept payments as a merchant, you need to know the answer to a key question: how long does Stripe take to pay out revenues to your bank account after a sale is made? Keep reading to find out.

Factors Affecting Stripe Payouts

How quickly Stripe deposits your money from your Stripe account balance into your bank account depends on a few different factors. Here’s what they are:

1.    Your Industry

Different industries have different payout speeds. This is because in some industries, businesses are dealing with a higher-risk customer. This means that buyers may be more likely to file a chargeback complaint or attempt a case of chargeback fraud. If your business is higher-risk, payouts could take longer.

2.    Your Country

Payout speed can also vary depending on what country your company is operating in. In addition to differences between different international banks and their various rules, practices, and operating hours, your country may be considered a higher-risk area for chargeback fraud.

3.    Your Risk Level

The next major factor is overall risk level. Your company’s industry and country are both risk level factors. Other factors that change your risk profile could also affect how quickly payouts reach your account.

When Will Stripe Pay Out My Account?

Accounting for various risk factors, Stripe will pay balances out to your bank account within 7-10 days of a transaction being fully completed and payment has been successfully received on Stripe’s end. If you are receiving your first payment, however, expect to wait a little bit longer. It takes more time to transfer your first balance payout because your Stripe account has only just been established. After that, payouts are made according to the schedule outlined in your account agreement. For more specifics, take a look at the list below. It outlines the payout schedule for different countries as well as other factors considered by Stripe.

Two Business Days

Stripe payout within two-business days is currently available to merchants in the United States and Australia. Payouts are sent daily, containing the revenues from two business days earlier. The exception is that payouts may take longer if your business is in a higher-risk industry.

Four Business Days

A four-business day payout schedule applies to users in New Zealand. Payouts are made daily for revenues earned four business days’ prior.

Five Business Days

For Stripe users in Malaysia, there is a five-business day payout schedule, so sales billed today will equate to revenue appearing in your account five business days from now.

Seven Calendar Days

For many account holders, there is a seven calendar day payout policy. That means that instead of business days, which don’t include weekends or holidays, payouts happen seven calendar days after a sale is made. This policy applies to accounts in all countries except Japan, and doesn’t apply to high-risk businesses in the United States or Australia.

30 Calendar Days

A 30-calendar day payout policy applies to Stripe merchant accounts in Brazil.

Japan: Weekly Payouts

For Japanese users, payouts come on a fixed schedule either weekly or monthly. Merchants can choose which day of the week they’d like to have balances transferred on a recurring basis.

Manual Payouts

Manual payouts are another option offered by Stripe. Rather than opting for recurring payments, when money is debited automatically at certain intervals, you can manually signal for a payout to be made to your bank account.

Stripe Instant Payouts

For Stripe’s instant payouts, revenues are sent via an automatic direct debit to a supported debit card account. This is a special feature that only some users qualify for. To use it, you need to request it, at which point Stripe will take steps to determine your eligibility based on factors like your home country and risk profile.

Final Thoughts

There are many factors that go into determining how long your Stripe payment gateway will take to pay out revenues from debit and credit card transactions. Whether you have a physical shop or e-commerce store, Stripe is a popular choice for merchants, as their payout schedule is competitive with similar payment gateways.
