How long does it take a payout method to become ready?
When you add a new payout method, it won't be able to accept your Airbnb payouts immediately. When the status of your payout method updates to ready, you'll be able to receive payouts. This process usually takes less than five business days.
There are 4 different statuses your payout method may have:
- New: the payout method is still editable; we cannot send payouts to this payout method
- Pending: the payout method is not editable; please wait for the status to change or for email communication about any additional verification needed
- Ready: the payout method is not editable; we can send payouts to this payout method
- Error: please remove this payout method and add a new payout method; we cannot send payouts to this payout method
In some countries, we'll verify your account information when you provide it to us the first time by depositing a small sum (less than $1 USD) before sending you a payout. This is to make sure we avoid sending money to the wrong account. We only need to verify an account once. Go ahead and keep the change! It's on us.
