Payment timeline

After the event has taken place, you can expect to receive their payment within 5 to 8 business days. This timeframe allows us to ensure that the tickets sold were valid and that your buyer was able to attend the event with them. We prioritize the security and satisfaction of both buyers and sellers, and this verification process helps us maintain the integrity of our platform.

Payment methods

StubHub offers two convenient payment methods for sellers to receive their funds: direct deposit and PayPal. Bear in mind that the payment will be made in the same currency used to list the tickets. Therefore, you must ensure that you have a registered payment method in the same currency.

How to add a payment method

Go to Payments and in Payout methods, choose the currency and the payment method.

  • Paypal: introduce the same email registered in your Paypal. Make sure that your account accepts the currency you chose.
  • Direct deposit: first introduce the same address registered in your bank account, and then provide your account details. Note that depending on the currency, your bank must be located in certain countries.

The payment method changes will be applied only to existing and new listings.

How to introduce a sort code for receiving payments in UK

If you are selling tickets for an UK event, you will be required to enter a Branching Sort Code. It's a unique code consisting of 6 digits that identifies a specific bank and branch.

To ensure that the system accepts the Sort Code it should only introduce numbers. Please do not include any hyphens (-), spaces, or special characters. All numbers of the Sort Code should be entered consecutively without any breaks.

Following an example:

  • Sort Code: 88-77-66
  • How to include in our platform:  887766
