Sounds to me like you've been using this feature a lot, or may even be a Super Shipper, @Suzanne1!!
With each completed transaction through our Shipping feature will establish the relationship between Stripe and your financial institute - meaning you get paid faster! We're REALLY working on ways to improve the payout timeline from all of the feedback we've received. Stay tuned for even more
Ok, OfferUp. Explain this one--I got paid 5 days before the buyer received their shipment. The fact that it took USPS 8 days to ship a 1st Class package less than 80 miles is a whole other issue.
More details-I believe what occurred is the buyer made a single payment on two separate items I had for sale. The buyer chose the shipping option. Item 1 was received by the buyer in 3 days. Item 2 took 8 days to arrive. Both items were shipped at the same time.
I was authorized for payment on day 4 and funds were deposited to my account on day 5.
The reality is that these types of payment anomalies (ie. @Suzanne1's experience of getting paid "early") from Stripe will work against the seller in the long run. Just wait until you get 1 or 2 people that want to "rightfully" return/request refunds or a transaction that does not go smoothly.
This is why Stripe has been passed over by Ayden to replace Paypal's presence on eBay in a few years.
