Cross-border payouts enable you to pay sellers, freelancers, content creators, and service providers in their local currencies. You can transfer funds to connected accounts in other countries with your existing platform account and charge configuration.
Cross-border payouts enable platforms in the US to pay out to Express and Custom connected accounts in the following countries:
* Bank accounts in countries with an asterisk (*) can only receive Euro (EUR) payouts.
Stripe might pause payouts to countries in the preview program while any issues are resolved. This can happen without advance notice to you as the owner of the platform or the owners of your connected accounts.
Some countries have special requirements for payments received from outside their country’s borders, or limitations on the supported fund flows. These countries might also have higher minimum payout amounts.
We also support Crypto payouts to select countries. To view additional supported payout countries, view our Crypto Payouts docs.
Stripe isn’t responsible for providing direct support for accounts on the recipient service agreement. However, the platform can reach out to Stripe for support for these accounts.
