Do you feel like your payouts take too long to leave your Mews Payments balance and then settle in your bank account? Do you see thousands sitting on your balance after a busy day and wonder when the money will be transferred?

Payouts, like any other bank transaction, take a bit of time to be processed. Once the guest's card is charged, the money gets to your Mews Payments balance in a matter of minutes. It then takes up to three business days for the amount to be processed and sent to your bank account as a payout. Depending on your bank, the transaction is then finalized in one or two business days, and the money lands in your account.

Therefore, the whole journey from the guest's credit card to your bank account may take up to five business days.


Your guest paid for his stay on Thursday. The amount will appear on your Mews Payments balance right away. Adding three business days, you can expect the money to leave the Mews Payments balance on Tuesday. Then it is up to your bank to allocate the money to your bank account, but it should arrive on Thursday at the latest.


New Stripe account: The first payout for every new Stripe account is typically paid out 7 days after the first successful payment is received. This waiting period can be up to 14 days for businesses in certain industries. This delay allows Stripe to mitigate some of the risks inherent in providing credit services. This initial payout timing requirement cannot be waived. Any changes made to your payout timing or payout method during this time will take effect after this initial delay.
