All client payments through Schedulista are processed and collected by Stripe and then transferred to the bank account you've set on your Stripe account. How often those funds are paid out depends on the country, as well as the industry, you are in.

Funds are transferred to your bank account based on the day a payment was authorized if you require clients to pay while booking, or the day you manually charge a card on file through Stripe if you use credit card capture for payment.

You can read more about the automatic payout schedule from Stripe here.

Stripe refers to the transfer of funds as a "payout". At the end of each day, Stripe looks at the balance of your account through any payments and possible refunds. If the balance is positive, they will transfer the amount of the balance to your bank. If the balance is negative, they will request funds from your bank account in the amount to bring the balance of your Stripe account back to zero for that day.

First payout

You should expect your first bundled payout within 7-10 days after your first successful payment is received during scheduling or after you've manually charged a captured card on file through Stripe, whichever is first.

Common payout schedules

These payout schedules are current as of July 2021.  You can check with Stripe on their most current payout information here.

Payouts are made daily by checking the overall balance of your Stripe account.

After your first successful payment is received and paid out, payouts will occur on a regular rolling schedule every certain number of days based on your location.  The majority of countries are on a 7-day rolling schedule.

Most banks will make funds from payouts available as soon as they are received.  Some banks may take extra days to post funds to your account.  Check with your bank on their specific deposit availability process.

Fixed weekly or monthly schedules

Countries: All countries

Payouts can be fixed to the same day of the week on a weekly schedule or the same day of the month on a monthly schedule.  Any payment set between the 29th-31st day will pay on the last day of a shorter month.  (e.g. February 28th)

Note: A fixed schedule does not change the standard availability of payouts per each country and industry.  If it would normally take 2 days for funds to become available, it will still take that time on a fixed schedule.  If Friday is your fixed weekly payout day, a payment on Thursday would transfer in the payout on Friday of the following week.

Higher-risk industries

Some business industries are considered higher risk for the possibility of fraudulent activity.  High-risk businesses in Australia and the U.S. will remain on the 7-calendar-day rolling payout schedule while Stripe monitors business activity for a short period to evaluate the risk.  Some high-risk businesses may qualify for the 2-day rolling schedule.

Some businesses in highest risk industries that aren't on the restricted business list may be subject to a 14-calendar-day rolling payout schedule.

You can contact Stripe to check on the risk status of your business.

Time zone difference

All payments and payouts are processed according to UTC time. As a result, the processed date may not be the same as your local time zone.
