Why Haven't I Received My First Stripe Payout Yet?

For a new Stripe account, the very first payout can take up to 14 days. Here's why.

If you just sold your very first online course or virtual consulting session on Lighthouse but haven't yet received the money from Stripe, don't worry! It's on the way!

According to Stripe, "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 allows Stripe to mitigate some of the risks inherent in providing credit services."

You can find more details in Stripe's payout FAQs.

After this initial waiting period, your following payouts will be instantaneous.
