How and when you get paid with Spotify Payouts

When you get paid

We typically process payouts during the last two working weeks of every month.

You’ll get a monthly payout of your current balance as long as that balance amounts to $10 or more. If your balance is less than $10, we’ll continue to accumulate your revenue until it reaches $10 or more. Once it does, you’ll receive your payout that month.

Your payout should appear in your bank account within 3 business days of the payout date. We’ll email you when your payout is on its way.

Note: You won’t receive any payments in the first 30 days after you set up Spotify Payouts.

You can’t change your payment date. Payouts are automatically sent on a recurring basis each month.


We deduct a flat fee of $0.30 per payout to cover our service costs.

Problems with payouts

We’ll send you an email notification and notify you through your Spotify Payouts dashboard if your payout fails.

Typically, a payout fails due to incorrect info, such as your name, address, or bank details. If your payout has failed, review your info. Once you update your info, we’ll try and process your payout again.

If you don’t receive your payout within 3 business days, there could be a delay on your bank’s side. Check that the info you provided us is correct, such as your name, address, social security number, and bank details.

If you haven’t heard from us and your payout hasn’t shown up in your bank account after 7 business days, let us know.

Payment platforms

Payouts for Podcast Subscriptions and Listener Support are processed through Stripe.

At the moment, you can only get paid through Spotify Payouts by linking a bank account. We hope to expand to other platforms soon.
