When do I get paid for my Commission?
As an artist, upon accepting a Commission request, the earnings will be deposited into your My Earnings account. At this point they will be held in Clearing for 14 days to permit a review of the transaction. After the 14 day period, when approved, you may withdraw your earnings via PayPal, Check, or as deviantART Points. See your My Earnings account for additional information on these options.
