When do payments get processed?

We begin processing payments on the 1st of each month for pledges from the previous month. It can take a full 72 hours for all payments to process, so you may not see any activity on your account for the first couple days of the month, especially if it is the weekend.

If you support a creator on a monthly basis, your pledge is renewed on the 1st of every month. You'll need to delete your pledge prior to the 1st of the next month if you want to avoid the next month's charge.
