Instant Payouts

Send Instant Payouts to your connected accounts

Instant Payouts

With Instant Payouts, you can immediately send funds to a connected account’s debit card. You can request Instant Payouts 24/7, including weekends and holidays, and funds typically appear in the associated bank account within 30 minutes.

Coverage

  • Instant Payouts are generally available in the United States.
  • Instant Payouts are in private beta in Singapore and Canada. You can request an invite here.
  • If you would like access to Instant Payouts in your country, let us know.

Compatibility

You must add a supported debit card to the connected account to use Instant Payouts. When you add a card to an account, Stripe returns the available_payout_methods property in the response, which contains the set of payout methods Stripe supports for that card. This property is either ["standard"] or ["standard", "instant"]. Only values in this set should be passed as the method when creating a payout.

{ "id": "card_9CUH5DBY1jTgQ0", "object": "card", ... "account": "acct_1032D82eZvKYlo2C", "available_payout_methods": ["standard", "instant"], }

Creating an Instant Payout

You can check a connected accounts’ balance available for payout with the Balances API and the connected account’s API key:

curl https://api.stripe.com/v1/balance \ -u sk_test_4eC39HqLyjWDarjtT1zdp7dc: \ -H "Stripe-Account: CONNECTED_STRIPE_ACCOUNT_ID"
# Set your secret key. Remember to switch to your live secret key in production! # See your keys here: https://dashboard.stripe.com/account/apikeys Stripe.api_key = 'sk_test_4eC39HqLyjWDarjtT1zdp7dc' balance = Stripe::Balance.retrieve( {stripe_account: '{{CONNECTED_STRIPE_ACCOUNT_ID}}'} )
# Set your secret key. Remember to switch to your live secret key in production! # See your keys here: https://dashboard.stripe.com/account/apikeys stripe.api_key = 'sk_test_4eC39HqLyjWDarjtT1zdp7dc' balance = stripe.Balance.retrieve( stripe_account='{{CONNECTED_STRIPE_ACCOUNT_ID}}' )
// Set your secret key.

The response contains an instant_available balance representing the amount the account can pay out instantly:

{ "object": "balance", "instant_available": [ { "amount": 10000, "currency": "usd", "source_types": { "card": 10000 } ] }

To create an Instant Payout, specify instant for the method property when creating the payout:

curl https://api.stripe.com/v1/payouts \ -u {PLATFORM_SECRET_KEY}: \ -H "Stripe-Account: {{CONNECTED_STRIPE_ACCOUNT_ID}}" \ -d amount=1000 \ -d currency=usd \ -d method=instant
