We send all rewards via PayPal, which is an American company that supports online money transfers. At this time, there is no alternative for receiving rewards from dscout, so you'll need a PayPal account in order to receive your reward.

Rewards and PayPal

As soon as you receive your reward in PayPal, you’ll be able to withdraw your funds in a number of different ways, including:
  • Bank transfer (learn how to connect a bank account to your PayPal account here.)
  • Using a PayPal debit Mastercard
  • Receiving a check

Payments should be received within 10 business days of your mission closing out. After you finish your mission, your mission leader will review your entries. Once they approve your entries, they'll let our payments team know to begin the payment process, at which point, we’ll message you in the dscout mobile app (you’ll receive this message via email, too!). This message will let you know the exact date you can expect your reward! Read more about payment messaging and timelines here.
If you haven't heard from our payments team and you were invited to your mission by an external recruiter, we may not be handling payments for this particular project. Read more here.
