Processing payouts

Transfers of payments from the Stripe account to your bank account take place according to the selected payout schedule, which you set in the Dashboard in your Stripe account. In the dashboard you can change the payout schedule and also find an overview of transfers from Stripe to your account .
The first payout usually takes a little longer in order to establish the Stripe account. Processing subsequent payouts then happens according to your account’s payout schedule. You can find more about receiving payments here.
