How do I get paid?

If you are based in the US:

You can receive payouts through ACH to your bank, or through Dwolla ACH to your bank.

If you are based outside the US:

You can receive payouts to your bank account via ACH to your bank through WorldFirst.

Payment status can be tracked under Payouts in your account. 

Tophatter automatically deducts seller fees from the payout amount before your payout, so you don’t need to pay fees later.

There is a $5 net payout minimum.

As of June 16, 2021, payouts are processed weekly on Wednesdays. An order will be eligible for payout when the following delivery and product health criteria are met:

  1. As soon as delivery of the order has been confirmed, or after 30 days domestic, 60 days international if delivery of a shipped order that has been accepted by a supported carrier cannot be verified.
  2. When poor feedback rate does not significantly exceed platform averages, as determined by ratings for the product. Product ratings are reviewed weekly for product payout holds. Product payout holds expire after each payout. Orders may continue to have payout held weekly until either the poor feedback rate recovers below platform averages or until the product is refunded, for up to 180 days from delivery.

New sellers: New seller accounts will be reviewed for payment 30 days after a payout method has been added. After the first payout, the account will no longer be considered new.

If sellers don't meet our guidelines, all payouts can be held until the account recovers. Payout holds may also apply to accounts requiring additional verification. Sellers will be notified if account verification needed, and may be asked to provide supporting documentation via email.

After funds are released it may take up to 60 days for a payout to be initiated. Funds in closed accounts will be held for a minimum of 90 days and/or until all orders have been delivered. Tophatter reserves the right to extend these time periods as deemed necessary.
