  • To link a bank account, go to the Finances section, select Payment methods, and click Bank account.

Important! The bank account must be denominated in the national currency.

Withdrawals to a bank account

Before withdrawing funds, make sure you have added your personal data in line with the above instructions.

Important! Verification is mandatory for payments to any country if withdrawals over a calendar year exceed EUR 2.5 thousand or the USD/RUB equivalent.

  • To withdraw money to a bank account, select the Balances tab and click Withdraw.

  • Select a bank account from the drop-down list of payment methods. The Specify amount field displays the entire current balance. If necessary, enter a different amount and click Next.

Important! Although Solar Staff processes payments in US dollars, the beneficiary's bank account is credited in the national currency as required by our payment partner.

Additionally, some countries may withhold taxes on payments as per their legislation.

Sample conversion that yields the final payment to a bank account:

1) Conversion in Solar Staff: EUR > USD

2) Withdrawal commission: 3.5%, but not less than 2 USD. Learn more
3) The payment partner's conversion: USD > National currency
3) Tax withheld on the payment partner's side:
Payment in national currency – Tax = Amount credited to the beneficiary's bank account.

Payment limits:

  • The cap on a single withdrawal is USD 3,000. If the withdrawal exceeds that amount, please contact support.

  • Payments to Chinese and Thai bank accounts are split into several transactions, maximum amount of each is as follows:

    • Thai bank: THB 49,999
