FAQs for Sellers

How will this affect my sales?

Direct Checkout lets buyers pay you quickly and securely without leaving our site, which leads to more sales. Turning on Direct Checkout also allows buyers to use Reverb Bucks and gift cards at your store (but no worries – you’ll still be paid out by direct deposit). Last but not least, it’s an easy way to broaden your audience, and our sellers see more orders when they opt in.

What are the costs?

It doesn't cost anything to opt in to Direct Checkout – and at 2.7% + $0.25 per transaction, our fees are lower than PayPal. Preferred Sellers qualify for an even lower rate. Simply put, it's the easiest way to get the most for your records on Reverb LP while reaching the broadest possible audience of buyers.

When will I receive my Direct Checkout payouts?

For your first sale, Reverb LP initiates a payout following confirmation your item has been delivered. For subsequent sales, Reverb LP initiates a payout when a valid tracking number shows the item is in-transit. Payout approval can take up to two business days. A valid tracking number MUST be provided to confirm the item has been shipped before dispersing payouts. Payout times vary based on existing feedback ratings, sales volume, Preferred Seller status, price of the item, and shipping destination. Read the full Direct Checkout Terms of Use for specifics.

  1. Item Ordered
    Up to 2 days
  2. Reviewed & Cleared for Shipment

    For your protection, we verify the buyer's information and secure payment on high-cost items.

  3. Tracking Added & Item In-Transit
    Up to 2 days
  4. Earnings Sent to Your Bank

    It typically takes 1-3 business days for funds to appear in your account, depending on your bank.


Note: US Sellers that exceed $20,000 in gross Direct Checkout Sales (not including refunds) and do more than 200 transactions in a calendar year will receive a 1099-K at the end of the year from Reverb LP.
