Why are my earnings “available soon”?

Due to the European PSD2-regulation (Payment Service Directive 2) Stuvia is no longer the intermediary for payments between the seller and buyer of documents on our platform. All sales on Stuvia go through our payment provider Stripe. 

It takes 4 working days for Stripe to release the money from buyer to seller. Stripe is a third party in this process, which means that Stuvia has no influence on this process. These 4 days are used to make sure the transaction is done correctly and safely.
