Etsy Demo: Is there a delay in transferring Stripe funds?

In the video for the Etsy demo the video ends after a test transfer was successfully completed. I have been working on my own ecommerce multi-tenant app that is transferring funds to different suppliers, and I keep getting the same Stripe error: "Stripe::InvalidRequestError (Insufficient funds in Stripe account.) In my logs everything looks good. My question is: Do I need to have some $$$ in my available Stripe balance before I can initiate these instant money transfers?

I'm pretty sure you need to have funds available in order to complete a transfer. You should check that you're receiving payments properly - as long as you're able to receive each payment, your balance should never dip below zero.
