After you complete a sale, the sale proceeds (sale price minus fees) will be in pending. How long the sale proceeds stay in pending depends on your account and what you sold. For a seller with a long and successful history selling on Gameflip, the sale proceeds usually are available immediately, but for new sellers, the pending period may be several days.
Once your sale proceeds appear in your balance, you can withdraw them using one of our available options: Wise, Payoneer, Skrill, your Bitcoin wallet. Please note that these are third party providers that we partner with, so you will need create and maintain an account with them. We strongly recommend that you open an account with these providers if you don't yet have one before you make a withdrawal, as they may require you to provide legally required documentation depending on your location.
With each payout option, there is a corresponding minimum withdrawal amount and fee. How long the transfer takes varies by each method, new or existing account with the provider, and the currency you are receiving. Please see below for more information, including the steps to make a withdrawal request.
- Go to Menu > Wallet > USD Wallet > Withdraw
- Select your payout provider of choice
- Enter the desired amount (or use Withdraw Max to withdraw all) and press "Confirm Payout"
- Menu > Wallet > USD Account > Available (under Cash from Completed Sales)
- Select the option available or appropriate for you
- Enter the Request Amount and press Next

To withdraw in Bitcoin, you will first need to apply and get approval with Gameflip. Please note that the Bitcoin payout request can take between 1-4 days to be paid, depending on the Bitcoin network congestion. The Bitcoin exchange rate fluctuates greatly and will be determined at the time of when the payout occurs, not when the withdrawal request occurs. This means that depending on the exchange rate, you may receive more or less than expected at the time of the withdrawal request. Exchange rates are always converted from USD > BTC.
