Editors are paid for the time spent on completing Paid Tasks and Review jobs.
The hourly rate for each Editor is updated daily depending on the Editor's Rating and average editing speed.
After reaching 5$ balance, Editors can request cash-out. The money is sent through PayPal. It's that simple.
Before requesting cash-out it's important to make sure the email used for registration on Unbabel can be used to send payments to your PayPal account. Learn how to add a new email address to your PayPal account. Also, you can simply change the email used on Unbabel for the one used on PayPal in Settings on the Dashboard page.
The maximum cash-out cannot exceed 100$ at a time. However, there may be multiple withdraw requests, in case the required amount is higher than that. For example, a 300$ withdraw requires 3 requests of 100$.
The maximum amount available for withdraw is always shown on the Dashboard page or in the site header bar.
After we process your cash-out request, usually within 7 business days, you receive an email from PayPal with further instructions.
If your PayPal account is registered under a different email than the one used to sign up on Unbabel, PayPal will guide you to add the second email to your current PayPal account.
Cash-out process and fees
Cash-out requests can sometimes take up to 7 business days to be processed and sent.
PayPal charges a fee that depends on the country and its currency. For the international sales usually it's 3.9% transaction fee plus a fixed fee based on currency received. Please refer to PayPal for more information.
No PayPal account?
You can create a PayPal account here: registration is free. Don't forget to register with the same email used to sign up on Unbabel.
Alternative to Paypal
If PayPal isn't available in your country, the cash-out may be processed through Skrill - find out more how to set up an account and request a cash-out here. Please note that this procedure usually requires more time and is only available when PayPal is not supported in your country.
Currently PayPal and Skrill are the only options available for cash-outs on Unbabel.
All cash-outs are issued in USD currency.
