Payout Methods

Accept Payments from Anyone, Anywhere.

Users are required to utilize our payment system to make a trip request.  This helps ensure that both parties are protected under our Terms of Service, Cancellation policies, and Guest Refund Policy. Paying outside the Open Angler network is not secured by us, and we cannot provide access to these benefits when reservations aren’t booked directly through our system.

To help cover the costs of running these services, Open Angler automatically includes a convenience fee charge to the user in each transaction, alongside with any required government taxes.

Open Angler (via Stripe Payments) can currently support trip providers in the US with instant ability to accept payments from around the world. We are working quickly to extend our capabilities to the international market.  

Open Angler offers several different payout methods.  When a payout is ready to be paid to you, it will be distributed according to your payout method selected.  Also, by adding your tax ID, your account will be verified and will allow us to issue payout to you much faster.

To add a payout method:

  1. Log into your account and click on 'Account Settings'
  2. Select Payout Methods
  3. Click Add a new payout method
  4. There are a couple of options for payout methods.  Select either Direct Depoist (ACH) or Debit Card.

Payout methods Available:

  1. ACH/Direct deposit: Have your checkbook handy to enter your routing number and account number. Make sure to enter the routing number for ACH/direct deposit. Wait for a small deposit to confirm your account is active. 
  2. Bank transfer/debit card: Enter your card information exactly as it appears on your debit card.  Payments will be made as a credit to your account.

To add tax ID/verify your account:

  1. Log into your account and click on 'Account Settings'
