Your listeners’ support will be processed monthly, but you can cash out your Anchor balance any time you want. Just click the Cash Out button in your Wallet at anchor.fm. Your bank information will already be in your account from your initial setup of Listener Support, so you'll be able to cash out anytime with one click.
Note: If you ever leave a balance in your Wallet for more than 30 days, we will automatically cash out for you. We’ll send an email notifying you if this happens.
Listener Support payouts process very quickly, and by default should be available in your account within 3 business days. If you have a debit card associated with your account (vs a bank account), you can also toggle on Instant Pay; for a small additional fee this’ll let you cash out immediately instead of waiting the 3 days.
If you need to add a debit card to your Stripe account after the fact, you can do this by logging into https://dashboard.stripe.com/login. Once you’re logged in, access your profile page and find the section where it lists ‘Cards’. Click the ‘Add card’ button and that should do it!
When you first start collecting Listener Support, initial payments may take up to 7 days to appear in your Wallet. After that brief validation period, all new payments should be available for you to cash out within 1-2 days. As soon as they’re available to cash out, you’ll see them reflected in your total Wallet amount.
Until new payments are available to cash out, they’ll be reflected in a pending state underneath your current Wallet total.
