How do I get paid for bookings?

The Payments section of your account allows you to view, manage, and withdraw funds for completed bookings. Payments for Rover bookings will be available for withdrawal 2 days after you successfully complete a service. 

Tip payments: If your client included a tip after you already received payment for the booking, then the money will be added to your account within 24 hours from when your client left a tip. Learn more about tipping here.
