What’s the difference between a Payout and a Deposit in WooCommerce Payments?

After you receive a successful payment via WooCommerce Payments, the balance of that payment, after transaction fees, will be added to your account balance. This account balance is regularly transferred into your bank account or debit card. With WooCommerce Payments, these transfers are referred to as Deposits.

You may be familiar with Payouts from other payment gateways. Payouts occur when part of your payment provider’s account balance is transferred into your bank account. Payouts are the same as Deposits with WooCommerce Payments.

The naming difference is based on feedback from WooCommerce merchants who preferred “Deposits.”
