Why is my payout blocked?

In an effort to keep security at Patreon one of our top priorities, we now put a temporary hold on creator payouts after a number of actions are performed on a creator's account. (including enabling Charge up front) If you have updated your payout method, or changed your account email address, there will be a 5 day lock on payouts. You will receive an email with more detail, including the specific time that the payout lock will be released. 

NOTE: If your payout is blocked at midnight on the 5th, your automatic payout will not process, so you will want to manually payout

Your account may also have a temporary hold put on it if you reach 600$ paid out in the calendar year. You will get an email with this notice as well. If only a portion of your funds were transferred when you paid out, this is most likely the case.

As these are measures in place to ensure the security of payouts for creators, we will not be able to remove the hold on the account.
