When do I get paid?
Based on your online sales volume, you will get paid weekly, bi-monthly, or monthly.
If you do more than USD 5,000 of online sales a week, you can get paid weekly
If you do less than USD 5,000 of online sales a week, you can get paid monthly. We usually transfer all the funds related to the previous month in the first week of every month.
Depending on which bucket your business falls in, payouts take place on or before these dates:
Weekly: Every Thursday
Monthly: 7th of each month
If the payout day falls on a weekend or public holiday, it'll be paid on the next business day.
Can I get my money faster?
We can increase the payout frequency only in exceptional circumstances. If you want to request it, please send an email to [email protected].

Why does my payout show Paid, but no funds have been deposited?
We transfer funds every day, but most banks only process the transfer on business days. This means that if funds were sent to you on a holiday or a weekend, then you will probably see the money in your bank the next day your bank is open. For transfers sent on business days, you should be seeing the funds by the next day.
If the transfer was submitted on a business day and you don’t see the money in your bank account within a couple of days, this likely means the transfer failed. Banks can take up to 3-5 business days to inform us about failed transfers, at which time we send you an email with the reason for the failed payout.
My payout failed, what do I do?
When a transfer fails, payouts to your bank account are put on hold until the issue is resolved. To resolve an issue causing your transfers to fail, follow the instructions on the email sent. For example, you might be prompted to update your banking details.
If you update your bank account to a valid checking account, then the failed transfers are automatically retried within the next 72 hours. If your current account is valid and you're unsure why the transfer failed, then you should contact your bank to investigate the issue.
Why are all my payouts 30 days apart?
In certain cases, your orders are subject to a 30-day payout period due to the products you sell. This payout period is required by our payment partner for some businesses. You are directly notified if your account requires a 30-day payout period instead of a normal payout period.
