When you sign up with GoFundMe, a Stripe account will be automatically created for you under the same email address.
This Stripe account has to be activated within 7 days. Activation includes verifying your personal information such as your name, address, personal tax ID number and bank account.
You can either withdraw these funds directly to your own bank account first, or enter your beneficiary's bank information so they can receive the funds directly.
Once a bank account is added, funds will automatically be sent to your bank account on a rolling 7-day basis. For example, a donation received on Monday would deposit the following Monday.
If you are located in the UK and did not get set up with a Stripe account, please contact our team.
