Before you begin, you will need to make sure you have a few things in order. We use three different processors to get money to your bank account. Patreon will only make payouts to a checking account. We cannot payout to a savings account or a card-only account backing a pre-paid credit/debit card.
If you want to use Stripe, you will need to know your checking account number as well as the routing number for your bank. These are located on the bottom of your checks. This is the best source to use for copying this information. Be sure to enter this information without spaces or dashes.
If you want to use PayPal, you will need to have a PayPal account linked with your checking account. You will need to know the registered email address on that account.
For Payoneer (for accounts outside of the US only) you will be walked through setting up the account and linking it with your checking account.
To set up your payout information on your Patreon creator account, you will want to log in to your account and then navigate to your payout preferences page:
From there, you will want to select whether or not you are a USA person or corporation, if you are an individual or a business/corporation, add your payout information, and also fill out the appropriate tax form.
After each update to this section, you will want to save the changes. If a pop-up appears saying that your account will be put on a 5-day lock upon saving, you will need to agree to this in order for the changes you've made to save. The lock will lift in 5 days (Pacific Time):
Step 4: Confirm that your information is successfully saved and you are all set. You've set up your payout information correctly.
