How does Bountye's payment system work?

Bountye's payment system is designed to make transferring money between buyers and sellers as simple and reliable as possible. Here's how it works:

  1. Buyers pay Bountye when they buy an item.
  2. Bountye releases the money to sellers, as soon as the item is confirmed as collected or recieved.
  3. To help cover the costs of running the Bountye platform and processing payments, Bountye automatically subtracts a small fee from each transaction. 

Bountye's payment system is also designed to ensure that both parties are protected under our User Agreement, and other policies. Paying outside the Bountye system is not secure, and we cannot provide access to these benefits when transactions don't occur directly through Bountye.
