Payouts are made on the 1st and 15th of the month, except where they fall on a weekend, in which case the payout will be made the next available business day.

Payouts are made via Stripe and are directly deposited to your bank account. All payment information will be handled by Stripe on their secure servers.

On initial join of Velvet Revue, payout will happen with a two week hold period. Meaning, if you join on the 1st of the month and make a sale before the 15th, that payout will be processed the following 1st of the month.

  • Week #1 – 1st of Month
  • Week #2
  • Week #3 – 15th of Month

  • Week #5 – 1st of Month & Payouts for Week #1 & #2

  • Week #7 – 15th of Month & Payouts for Week #3 & #4
  • etc.

This policy is due to Stripe’s evaluation period, and will be reevaluated after 6 months.

We feel “supporter” is a better fit for subscribers of Velvet Revue. They are supporting the performance arts, and most importantly they are supporting you.
