To get paid, you need to choose the method of payment that BlueSnap should use for your regular payouts.

Once your payout method is set up, any future changes require an inquiry to Merchant Support.


  • Information on payout frequency can be found here

  • Depending on commercial terms, the Platform can support multiple payout methods in 16 payout currencies. For the complete list, refer to the Like-for-like column in the Supported Currencies table.

  • The Payout Details Report provides information for each payout, including sales, affiliate sales, refunds, chargebacks, commissions, and more.

  • Fees vary by payment method. Refer to the Table of BlueSnap Fees under Settings > BlueSnap Agreement for details.

Setting up your payout method

To set up the payout method, go to Settings > Payout Method in the Merchant Console.

Define these settings:

  • Bank Account Country: Select the bank account country to which funds are sent.

  • Payment method: You can choose from one of these Payment Method Types.

  • Payment Reference: Customize the reference text that appear on your bank statement for BlueSnap deposits. If left blank, the text is the standard message (i.e., "BlueSnap Payment for Merchant {Merchant ID}"). Note: Payment Reference is not applicable to CAD payouts using EFT/ACH.

  • Minimal Payout Amount: This is the minimum amount for a payout. If any payout due is below the specified value, a payout is not created and the next payout includes the transactions that were not paid out. You can increase the minimum payout amount if necessary.

  • Note: The default value is 35.00 in USD for USD and for any currency not listed below. For the currencies listed below, the default value is specified in that currency.

    • AUD, CAD, NZD, and SGD: 50.00
    • CHF, EUR, and GBP: 35.00
    • CZK: 800.00
    • DKK: 250.00
    • HKD, NOK, and SEK: 300.00
    • HUF: 10,000.00
    • JPY: 3,700.00
    • PLN: 135.00
  • Refund Reserve: Account funds that are set aside (not paid out) to enable you to issue refunds even when your account balance is low. Your Refund Reserve balance accrues from sales, and once your Refund Reserve amount is met, all additional sales are applied to your next payout.


Managing your Refund Reserve

You may modify your Refund Reserve amount at any time. If you increase the amount, a portion of your available payout funds are held to increase the Refund Reserve balance to the newly defined amount. If you decrease the amount, the leftover balance is added to your next payout.

Note: If your Refund Reserve results in insufficient funds to generate a payout, you do not receive a payout and no payout notification is sent.

  • Account Details: Provide account information for your chosen payment method.

Once you finish, click Submit. Your changes take effect at the end of your current payout.
