Getting paid with Eventbrite Payment Processing

Updated by Support

If you're running a paid event, Eventbrite Payment Processing is the standard method for accepting payments online. Once Eventbrite sends your payout, your bank and location will determine how long it takes for the money to show in your account. It can take up to 5 business days for payouts within the U.S. For payouts outside the U.S., it can take up to 7 business days.

If your event meets PayPal’s requirements, the option will automatically appear when attendees buy tickets. Ticket sales paid via PayPal will be included in the payout Eventbrite sends.
