Ways to Get Paid by FastSpring

Last modified June 7, 2018

This article applies to Contextual Commerce. (Looking for Classic Commerce documentation?)

There are currently six payment methods available by which you can collect your funds from FastSpring.

  • Direct Deposit (ACH) and International Direct Deposit (IACH)
  • PayPal
  • Payoneer Prepaid MasterCard®
  • Wire Transfer
  • Physical Check / Other

Detailed information about each payment method is available below.

Making Changes to Your Payment Method

To make changes to your payment method, click the Store menu at the top left-hand corner of the Dashboard and select Account Summary.

Example of the Store menu with the Account Summary menu option highlighted

Then, click the Edit link below the Payment Method on the right-hand side of the page.

Example of the Account page

On the Payment Methods page, click the OPTIONS command at the top right-hand corner of the page, and then select to enter the payment details for your desired payment method.

Or, if you have previously entered payment information for multiple payment methods, you can switch between them (to choose the payment method that will be used) by clicking Select next to the desired method; the currently selected method will have the word Selected instead of a link.

You can also click Delete to remove a previously-entered payment method. However, you cannot delete the currently selected payment method. Therefore, if you need to delete the current payment method, you must first enter a different payment method and select that.

Example of the Payment Methods page with multiple methods defined and the Select command highlighted

Making a change to your selected payment method may take up to five business days to take effect. When you make a change, a notice to that effect will be displayed.

Finland Malta United Kingdom

After you select Enter Direct Deposit (ACH) Information, you will be prompted to select the country in which your bank account is located, and then click CREATE.

The remainder of the fields will vary depending on the country in which your bank account is located. All fields (other than Address Line 2) are required, unless otherwise indicated.

Once you have completed all required fields, click CREATE to add the new bank information to your account. The Payment Methods page will appear again, with your new payment method available to be selected. Please note that if you had previously created a different payment method, the new method will not be selected by default.

When you select Enter PayPal Payment Information, you will be prompted to enter the email address of your PayPal account and then click CREATE.  That is all you have to do, but please note that if you had previously created a different payment method, the new method will not be selected by default.


If you do not already have a PayPal account, you can create one for free at  http://www.paypal.com.


Disbursements made to non-U.S.-based PayPal accounts will incur a 2% fee, up to a maximum of $20 USD. If our ACH / Direct Deposit option is available in your country, that might be a less expensive alternative since there is no fee associated with this payment method.

Payoneer offers you a different way to get paid. It is fast and secure, and it offers you the most flexibility with your money. By receiving your payments via the Prepaid MasterCard®, there is no need to wait for checks to arrive in the mail, or to wait for funds to clear.

  • Use your card anywhere Debit MasterCard® is accepted worldwide or online.
  • Get cash at ATMs worldwide.
  • Online access to your card account allows you to easily check your balance and transaction history.

Note: There are certain fees associated with the Prepaid debit card.

On the page that appears, click NEXT to go to Payoneer's site and create an account, which will be linked with your FastSpring account.

Wire Transfer

After selecting Enter Wire Transfer Instructions, you will be prompted to supply information about your bank account, your address (as associated with the bank account), the bank itself, and optionally the intermediary bank (sometimes called the correspondent bank) used by your bank when processing wire transfers that originate in the United States.
