ArtStation does payouts direct to bank accounts and PayPal on a monthly (1st of every month) or weekly basis on Monday, provided that your account balance is above the minimum payout threshold.
On the Payouts and Earnings page, you can set your bank account information to have payments made to.
You can decide whether you want to be paid every week or every month.
When monthly payout is selected, it will perform the payout on the 1st of every month. If earnings reach the minimum payout threshold (see below), it will perform the payout.
Payouts happen on a rolling weekly basis every Monday. At the end of sales period (1 week), earnings are held for 1 week for all funds to clear, handle chargebacks, refunds, etc. After this 1 week period, the account balance will automatically be paid out to your bank account.
ArtStation does direct payouts to bank accounts internationally to over 220+ countries to local currency i.e. if you're in the UK, you'll get the money converted to GBP dollars in your bank account.
There are payout fees that are automatically deducted by our payout partners at the time of payout. Payout fees range from $1 - $25 USD depending on which country your bank is in (see below for idea of fees). Note that these fees are performed by our payout partners - not ArtStation. Your payout fee will be displayed on the Payouts & Earnings page after you have hooked up a bank account.
If your bank account is located outside the US, funds will be automatically converted into your local bank account currency using a live currency conversion rate at the time of payment - which generally will be a better rate than what your bank would offer you.
At the time of payout, ArtStation will evaluate if a payout meets a minimum threshold. Our payout partners charge a transaction fee that is deducted from your payout.

We don't recommend it. These accounts are "virtual" bank accounts - so, for example, you might live in Europe and have a Payoneer virtual bank account with a US address. If you attempt to do this, it may fail compliance checking or at worst, the money might vanish completely (i.e. ArtStation pays out the funds and it never gets to you). We say it's not worth the risk.
