Setting bank and debit card payouts

Stripe allows platforms to specify payouts for its Express and Custom Connect accounts.

By default, any charge you make on behalf of a connected account accumulates in the connected account’s balance and is paid out on a daily rolling basis. However, Stripe offers platforms fine-grained tools to change the payout schedule for Express and Custom accounts, as well as tools to accumulate charges in the platform balance.

You can:

For Custom accounts, the platform can also set the destination bank accounts and debit cards. For Express accounts, the account holder handles that.

Bank account formats by country

When attaching bank accounts to Custom accounts, platforms need to provide an account_number and, in some countries, a routing_number. Every country has a slightly different format for these numbers, and entering them incorrectly causes subsequent payouts to fail.

We recommend creating validations in your bank account entry forms that enforce the required formats based on the country of the Custom account’s bank. In some countries, separate pieces of information—for example, the bank code and branch codes—must be combined to create a routing number.

Typically, banks present the account number in the format xx-xxxx-xxxxxxx-xxx. This can be input directly into the API without separators as the account_number. However, if the portions are provided individually the explanations below will assist in assembling them into the standard format. Refer the points below, to the complete example above.

  • Provide the full 15-16 digit account number without separators.
  • AABBBB is the bank AA and branch numbers BBBB.
  • 3456789 is the account number.
  • 0ZZ is the suffix with the 0 digit being optional if the suffix is only two digits. However, if the suffix is three digits, the first digit must be 0 (e.g., suffix 23 could be represented as either 23 or 023).

Managing bank accounts and debit cards

Express and Custom accounts have an external_accounts property: a list of all bank accounts and debit cards associated with the Stripe account. Any external account is a possible destination for funds.

Platforms can see the external accounts for its connected Express accounts. Platforms can update the external accounts for its Custom accounts.

{ ... "external_accounts": { "object": "list", "has_more": false, "url": "/v1/accounts/acct_14qyt6Alijdnw0EA/external_accounts", "data": [ { "id": "ba_18u1IUJ6m0aiknMBHFQaTWOj", "object": "bank_account", "account": "acct_18rsqhJ6m0aiknMB", "account_holder_name": "Jane Austen", "account_holder_type": "individual", "bank_name": "STRIPE TEST BANK", "country": "US", "currency": "usd", "default_for_currency": false, "fingerprint": "sSZ2yLp0EZTH17cF", "last4": "6789", "metadata": { }, "routing_number": "110000000", "status": "new" }, {...}, {...}, ], ... }

Destination accounts are added via the external_accounts parameter when creating or updating Custom accounts. The value should be a bank account or debit card token returned from Stripe.js. Alternatively, you can provide a hash of the bank account details, but using Stripe.js is preferred as it prevents sensitive data from hitting your server.

When using debit cards as a payout destination, the following restrictions apply:

  • Must be a non-prepaid U.S. Visa, Mastercard, or Discover
  • Limited to $9,999 (USD) per payout on Instant Payouts
  • Generally limited to $3,000 (USD) per payout otherwise

Also, Stripe cannot perform a negative payout against a debit card to correct a negative Stripe account balance.

Managing multiple bank and debit accounts

By default, providing a new value for external_accounts while updating a Custom account replaces the existing account with the new one. To add additional bank accounts or debit cards to a connected account, use the Bank Account and Card creation API endpoints.

When working with multiple currencies, Stripe automatically sends payouts to an associated bank account or debit card for its currency, thereby avoiding exchange fees. When there are multiple accounts available for a given currency, Stripe uses the one set as default_for_currency.

Payout schedule

When using automatic payouts, the settings[payouts][schedule] property on an account indicates how often the Stripe account’s balance is automatically paid out:

{ ... "payouts": { ... "schedule": { "delay_days": 7, "interval": "daily" }, ... }

The delay_days property reflects how long it takes for on_behalf_of charges (or direct charges performed on the connected account) to become available for payout. This field is useful for dictating automatic payouts. For example, if you want your Express or Custom accounts to receive their funds 2 weeks after the charge is made, set interval to daily and delay_days to 14. The default is the lowest permitted value for the account, determined by the connected account’s country. When setting or updating this field, you may pass the string minimum to choose the lowest permitted value.

There are four possible settings for the interval property:

  • manual prevents automatic payouts. You will have to manually pay out the account’s balance using the Payouts API (acting as the connected account). You also set an account to manual to use Instant Payouts.
  • daily automatically pays out charges delay_days days after they’re created. The delay_days value cannot be less than your own payout schedule or less than the default payout schedule for the account.
  • weekly automatically pays out the balance once a week, with the day specified by the weekly_anchor parameter (a lower-case weekday such as monday).
  • monthly automatically pays out the balance once a month, as specified by the monthly_anchor parameter (a number from 1 to 31). Payouts nominally scheduled between the 29th and 31st of the month are instead sent on the last day of a shorter month.

Using manual payouts

If you set the value of settings[payouts][schedule] to manual using the Accounts API, Stripe will hold funds in the account holder’s balance until told to pay them out for up to 90 days. The exception to this limitation is the U.S., where funds can be held in their balance for up to two years. To trigger a payout of these funds, use the Payouts API.

The Payouts API is only for moving funds from a connected Stripe account’s balance into their external account. To move funds between the platform and a connected account, see creating separate charges and transfers or creating destination charges through the platform.

Regular payouts

As a basic payout example, to have $10 sent from a connected account’s Stripe balance to their external account:

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

With a standard payout, you can move an amount up to the user’s available balance. To find that amount, perform a retrieve balance call on their behalf.

Stripe tracks balance contributions from different payment sources in separate balances. The retrieve balance response breaks down the components of each balance by source type. For example, to create a payout specifically for a non-credit-card balance, specify the source_type in your request.

curl https://api.stripe.com/v1/payouts \ -u {PLATFORM_SECRET_KEY}: \ -d amount=24784 \ -d currency=usd \ -d source_type=bank_account

Note that it is possible for any source’s balance component to go negative (through refunds or chargebacks), and payouts can’t be created for greater than the aggregate available balance.

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}}' )

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

Initially, platforms can pay out up to $5,000 USD per day—in total, across all connected accounts—through Instant Payouts. Each day resets at 12am CST. Contact us if you need to increase this threshold.

Using webhooks with payouts

All payout activity on connected accounts can be tracked using webhooks. (When using Connect, you should always be using webhooks.) Specific to payouts, you’ll see these events:

  • payout.created
  • payout.updated
  • payout.paid
  • payout.failed

For most payouts, these event notifications occur over a series of days. Instant Payouts typically send payout.paid within 30 minutes.

If a payout cannot be completed, a payout.failed event occurs. The event’s failure_code property indicates why. Additionally, the external account involved in the payout is disabled, triggering an account.external_account.updated notification. No automatic or manual payouts can go through until the platform updates the connected account’s external accounts.
