The article above will guide you through earning funds in your Setlr wallet. If you've already earned some funds you can tap the "Earnings" icon on the bottom menu at any time to manage your Translator earnings.

"My Wallet" shows the current value of funds in your Setlr wallet. For more information on supported currencies you can view this article: How/when will I be paid?

Requesting a "Payout" to your bank account

You can do this at any time while you have available funds in your Setlr wallet.

Step 1: Tap "Payout"

Note: If you haven't already done so, you'll be prompted to link a bank account to your Setlr account. You can also manage your linked bank accounts by tapping the "More" icon on the bottom main menu and then "Account" > "My Accounts".

Step 2: Select the bank account you want to payout to.

Step 3: Touch "Payout"

Step 4: Check your bank account details very carefully and touch "Yes" to proceed.

Managing your earning potential

Your earning potential number is the percentage of the per word value that you will receive for every word in your translated and approved strings.

E.g. If your earning potential is 75% and the client has paid $0.06 per word, you'll receive $0.045 in your Setlr wallet for every word you translate (once your strings have passed peer-review and the finished job has been accepted by the client).
