Set up Your Bank Account to Receive Payouts

In order for you to receive funds, Okra (or your platform via our API) makes payouts to your connected bank account.

You can view a list of all of your payouts and the date that they are expected to be received in your bank account in the Dashboard.


You can initiate payouts directly from the Okra Dashboard via the Payouts page.

Manual payouts

You can manually send funds to your bank account. You can do this either in the Payouts section of the Dashboard or by initiating a payout using the API shown below.
