Set up my payment information

  • Updated

Depending on your selected currency and your location, you have the choice to pay out your balance to a bank account, Payoneer or PayPal. Let’s get your payout method set up, so you can start getting paid!

How to set up your payout information for the first time: 

  1. While logged in to your creator profile on desktop or mobile, click on the Settings link from the left sidebar navigation
    Click on the Payout and taxes link 
  2. Click the Add payout method button. 
  3. Let us know: 
  • If you’re an individual or a business/corporation > click Next
  • If you are a US creator or a non-US creator > click Next
  • Select your payout country from the drop-down list 
  • Select your payout method and complete the form. Your payout method options will depend on the payout country you select. Your bank, Payoneer or PayPal account country location information must match the information you provide 
  • Click the Save button, and you’re all set! 
  • An automatic 5-day payout lock is placed on your balance whenever you add or edit a payout method.

    3 payout options 

    Direct deposit via Stripe (US payout country)

    We recommend that you use a current account to transfer payouts. Using a non-standard bank account, like a savings account or virtual bank account, may result in a higher chance of payout failure.

    To use Stripe, you’ll need to know your current account number as well as the sort code. These numbers should be listed on your bank statements – you can speak to your bank if you don’t have bank statements. Be sure to enter this information without spaces or dashes.


    If your payout to a standard current account fails, we suggest calling your bank to ensure that your account information, including your address, is up to date before attempting.

    If your payout to a non-standard bank account (savings or virtual bank account) fails, we ask that you update your payout method to a standard bank current account. Once you update your payout information, Stripe will reattempt the payout immediately.


    If you want to use PayPal, you will only need your PayPal email address. Be careful when adding your email address – if there are any typos in the email you provide, your payout won’t be routed properly. 

    If you notice a typo in your payout information after paying out, scroll to the bottom of this page and click on ‘Email Patreon Support’. We’re happy to help out!


    For Payoneer (for accounts outside of the US only), you will be walked through setting up the account and linking it with your current account. If you come across any issues with using Payoneer, please refer to this troubleshooting guide our team has put together: Payoneer FAQs

    Please note that you can only link one Payoneer account to your Patreon account. 

    When can I payout?

    You can payout whenever you have a positive account balance. You’ll be able to pay out once every 24 hours. You can check your current balance by logging in, heading to your Payouts page and clicking the Withdraw button.
