How to process payouts manually

If you select the Manual payout system in HivePress > Settings > Payouts, each vendor will have their own balance on your site and will be able to request payouts via any payment methods you offer (e.g. PayPal, Payoneer, Wise).

You can offer any methods since the payout request form just collects details from vendors, while all the payments are made manually. Please follow these instructions to add payout methods for vendors to choose from.

The whole payout process looks like this:

  1. Once the vendor's balance reaches the minimum amount defined in HivePress > Settings > Payouts, they can click the Request a Payout link, fill in the payout request form and submit it.
  2. A new Pending payout request is added to WordPress > Payouts.
  3. The site owner checks pending requests and makes payments manually, depending on the details. For example, if a vendor chooses PayPal and adds their email address to the request Details, you should go to PayPal and manually make a payment.
  4. Once the payment is made, the site owner changes the payout request status from Pending to Publish.
  5. The payout amount is deducted from the vendor's balance on your site.
