Payments can be transferred to any account as soon as they have cleared. Credit card payments clear immediately. Payments from participant's bank accounts take 4-5 business days to clear.
Once the funds have cleared, organizers transfer the funds to any US account (no fee) whenever they want. They do so by going to the "Payouts" page in the menu on the upper right hand. There, they simply click on "Initiate US Payout" and enter the amount they wish to transfer.
Once a payout is initiated, the funds are transferred in 2-3 business days.
Delay for Identity Verification: When you do your first large payout (in the thousands of dollars), our payment provider Stripe is legally obliged to identify your identity. In some cases, this can delay your first large payout by a few days. Please keep this in mind and transfer your funds early enough.
Adding a payout method: If you have not added a US payment method yet, please see this support article here.
International Payout: WeTravel also allows you to wire funds directly to any international account. Please see this support article here.
"Initiate US Payout" button not available: If you have added a payout method but you do NOT see the "Initiate US Payout" button marked above, please contact the WeTravel team so we can activate payouts for your account.
