Payouts vs. Payments

Open Angler (Supported by Stripe Payments) is secure, reliable, and convenient; supporting several types of payment and payout methods.

  • Payment: the money a customer pays for a reservation.
  • Payout: the money a trip provider receives for a reservation.


When a booking request is accepted, payment is processed and collected by Open Angler. Whether the reservation is two days or two months away, we hold the payment until 24 hours after check-in before releasing the funds.


Open Angler does not endorse cash payments. In order to uphold our Terms of Service, transactions must take place on the site. By completing your transactions on the site, the security of your funds is ensured, and you’ll be protected by our policies, such as Cancellation Policies and the Guest Refund Policy.
