Payouts as part of payment processing

How do withdrawals work in the context of payment processing

  • When a buyer has purchased and paid for one of your items, the amount, minus applicable fees, is recorded as a Processing / Withdrawals being processed displayed. This means that the order is confirmed and you can send the item (s).
  • The amount of money will usually be received within one working day after the order is confirmedAvailable payouts unless the amount has been withheld. If so, it may take longer.
  • Withdrawal is usually instructed within two business days of order confirmation and the withdrawal status becomes Amount sent changed. After the instruction, it usually takes 1 to 3 working days for the amount to appear in your account and to be available to you.
    • This time frame corresponds roughly to the usual bank processing deadlines.
    • Once the withdrawal has been instructed, the money is no longer on eBay. eBay does not earn interest on sellers' money.
Note: Some holidays may delay the withdrawal deadlines:
  • Daily payout: If your buyer's order is confirmed on a holiday or weekend and your payouts are scheduled daily, the payout will be initiated 2 business days after the applicable holiday or weekend. For example, if the buyer's order is confirmed on Friday and the holiday falls on Monday, the payout will be initiated on Wednesday (2 working days) later.
  • Weekly payout: Your payouts are scheduled weekly, the payout will be initiated in the next scheduled weekly payout, on Tuesday. For example, if the buyer's order is confirmed on Friday and the holiday falls on Monday, the payout will be initiated on Tuesday of the following week (8 days later).
