Bank Deposits

Settlement payments for Business and Enterprise merchants happen automatically, every business day.

BitPay issues bank settlements for Starter plan merchants on a weekly basis.

We protect merchants on our platform by maintaining enterprise-level legal and compliance standards. Tiered processing limits apply based on verification level; these limits can be raised through compliance verification.
