PayPal Specific Issues

Q: What happens if an error occurs while processing payments?
A: If an error occurs while Bugcrowd is processing payments, we will contact you with any error code received during the pay run. You have to work with PayPal directly to resolve the issue with your account because Bugcrowd does not have the authorization to contact them on your behalf. You must have your account information and provide a brief description of the issues.

PayPal payments can take up to 24 hours or more to process.

Bank Transfer Specific Questions

Q: What happens if I do not have a bank account to transfer to?
A: For assistance, submit a support ticket through the Bugcrowd Support Portal.

Q: How do I find my Foreign Tax ID Number?
A: You can find the list of international Foreign Tax Identifications Numbers here.

Payments directly from Bugcrowd to your actual Bank Account provides faster transfer timeline and lower conversion rates. Hence, it is recommended to link your Bank Account.
