Hey, @Lazarr921!


That's a great question!


The timing of receiving payments depends on whether you have Shopify Payments set up on your store or not. If you have Shopify Payments enabled, you will receive payments through Shopify Payouts when customers pay using Shopify Payments or specific accelerated checkouts like PayPal. However, if customers pay using third-party payment gateways (such as PayPal) and you don't have Shopify Payments enabled, you won't see your payout information in your Shopify admin.


Here is a table summarizing the information:




The frequency of payouts depends on the payment provider you use. If you use Shopify Payments, you can check your pay period to see when you will receive payouts for credit card orders. Other payment providers have their own rules regarding payout schedules, so it's best to check with your specific provider for more information.


After the payout is sent, it may take a few days for the funds to be deposited into your bank account. If you notice any delays, it's advisable to reach out to your bank for further assistance. You can learn more about getting paid by clicking on this link!


I don't know if you have anything planned for BFCM this year, but now is the time to make some preparations. BFCM is one of the biggest sales weekends of the year and sees the start of the holiday season as well. Every year my go-to is this BFCM Checklist. It allows me to make sure that I am making the best use of my time and resources, and it really helps take the pressure off by starting early. It is well worth the read should you be interested!
