Uphold

If you're a creator on Cinnamon and just migrated from XRP TipBot to Uphold, you must sign out and back in to your Cinnamon account. This forces Cinnamon to grab your new payment pointer.

Use Uphold to have your Coil earnings paid out in over 50 supported currencies, including fiat and crypto. See Uphold's site for more information about your payout options.

Opening an Uphold account only takes a few minutes. They collect your legal name, date of birth, and phone number. You don't have to verify your identity until you're ready to withdraw your funds, but you can do it earlier if you want. See their help article for more information about verifying your identity.

Set up your account to receive payments from Coil

You don't need to fund your account to receive payments from Coil Members, but you do need to set up your account to receive Interledger payments.

App - If you're still in the Sign Up flow, tap Fund my account. If you're on the Portfolio screen, tap Transact in the toolbar.

Website - Click Transact in the toolbar.

Set up account

  1. Tap the From menu.

  2. Scroll to the bottom of the list and tap Interledger.

  3. Tap I agree and Continue.

  4. Select the type of currency you want your Coil earnings paid out in by tapping the To menu.

  5. Copy your payment pointer. You'll need this when you set up your free Coil creator account.

  6. Tap Done. The Portfolio screen appears.

View activity and claim funds

View activity

Uphold's Android and iOS apps show incoming payments in real time; however, the website does not. This means payments might not show up on the website right away. A payment becomes visible on the website when the payment is claimed.

You can watch payment streams in the app by tapping Activity from the toolbar. You can tap any activity that shows on the screen to see more details.

Claim funds

Before your funds can be withdrawn, they must be claimed. The minimum claimable amount varies based on currency.

Uphold will automatically claim funds on your behalf at certain intervals. For example,

  • Within an hour, if you have a balance of $0.01 USD or greater

  • Every night around midnight, if you have a balance less than $0.01 USD

You can manually claim your funds using the Uphold app if you don't want to wait. You cannot manually claim your funds through the Uphold website. If you know you've received a payment, but it's not showing up on the website, make sure enough time has passed for Uphold to claim the payment before reporting a problem.

When you've received the minimum amount required to claim the funds, a Claim funds button becomes active in the app. If you don't manually claim funds, Uphold will do it for you.

After funds are claimed, the transaction's status changes to Completed

The transaction shows as deposited on the Activity screen on both the app and website.
