About payouts from GitHub Sponsors

You can only manage your payouts from GitHub Sponsors if you are paid through Stripe Connect. If you are paid through ACH transfer or wire transfer for your sponsored user account, you will not see the Payouts tab on your sponsored open source contributor dashboard. Sponsored organizations can only use Stripe Connect for payouts. For more information, see "About GitHub Sponsors for open source contributors."

You will be eligible for payment 90 days after the first person sponsors you. After this period, GitHub will issue a payout to you for any month that your balance reaches $100 USD. Contributions from the GitHub Sponsors Matching Fund do not count towards this threshold.

Payouts are sent through Stripe Connect, ACH transfer, or wire transfer to the bank account you provide while applying for GitHub Sponsors. If you are paid through Stripe Connect, you will receive payouts on the 22nd of the month for your balance at the end of the previous month. If you are paid through ACH transfer or wire transfer, you will receive payouts on the third Thursday of the month.

If your balance is below $100 at the end of the month, the balance will accrue until the next time your balance is above the threshold at the end of the month. If you leave GitHub Sponsors, GitHub will issue a payout for your remaining balance even if the balance is below $100.
