Processing orders and receiving payouts

Buyer Cancellations

Buyers will have 15 minutes to cancel their purchase after downloading a program from Google Play. After this cancellation period expires, Google automatically charges the card and initiates payments to your account as per the applicable payout schedule.

Monthly Payouts and Reporting

Any orders processed, refunded, or charged-back from the first of a given month to the end of the month will get paid out around the 15th of the following month. Note that it may take several days for your bank to credit your account. To learn more about turnaround time for electronically deposited funds, please contact your financial institution.

Locations that receive payouts via wire transfer

In certain locations, Google Play Merchants will receive payouts through a wire transfer from Google. See Receiving payouts via wire transfer for more information.

A Few Things to Remember

  • The Payouts transactions tab within the Google Wallet Merchant Center is not updated in real time and will update within 24 hours of a payout.
  • Google doesn't initiate deposits on weekends or banking holidays. For example, if you charge an order on a Thursday, Friday, or Saturday, your deposit will be initiated on Monday. If Monday is a banking holiday, your deposit will be initiated on Tuesday.
  • Your earned balance at the time of payout must meet a minimum, based on how you receive payouts:
    • Merchants who receive local currency payouts: $1 USD
    • Merchants who receive USD wire transfer payouts: $100 USD
