Every Friday afternoon, we issue a Transfer for any Credit in your Ledger. A Transfer represents the movement of funds out of the Design Portland platform account and into your personal Stripe account. Transfers are recorded as “Debits” in your transaction history.

If you do not have a Stripe account connected, you may see a Failed Transfer in your Transaction history. These are harmless, and just show when (internally) we tried to make a payout. As soon as you connect a Stripe account, Transfers will start to happen normally, and you’ll see normal Transfer transactions indicating a Debit on your platform balance for the amount transferred.

You can also view incoming Transfers via your Stripe dashboard. Every successful outgoing Transfer in your platform history will have a corresponding record in Stripe.

Periodically, Stripe will move funds into your connected bank account, though a process they call Payouts.
