Payment of your earnings

We balance accounts with you once a month for all Shop sales, Marketplace sales and Volume Commission earnings. We usually process the accounts for your earnings (generated in the previous month) by the end of the third week of the current month. At this point, you will be notified by email. As a rule - and depending on bank handling times - you should have received your money by the end of the month. Please refer to our GT&C for more detailed information.

When balancing the accounts, we have a minimum amount for eventual payments that depends on the currency you use. If your currency is the Euro, you need to accumulate a balance of at least €10 in credits. You can read the minimum amount of commission required for other currencies in this overview.
