The hard part is done: your client has submitted their payment. Congrats! The funds are on their way to you, and how long that payment takes to show up in your account can vary based on a few factors. 

First of all, remember that once your client has made a payment, you can review the estimated deposit date of the payment via the Payments tab of your Bookkeeping tool, or by opening the file through which you received the payment and hovering over a Paid or Pending payment status.


In general, credit card payments usually take 2-3 business days to reach your account, and bank transfers usually take 7-8 business days (since the funds need to clear your client's bank account first). Remember, though, that all times are approximate and may be subject to delay based on bank processes.
 
For credit card payments, it's also important to bear in mind the time of day that the payment is made:



Credit card payments made before 4:00pm PT

  • Credit card payments made BEFORE 4:00pm PT will likely transfer to the your bank on the next business day.
  • Remember: all times are approximate and may be subject to delay based on bank processes.


Credit card payments made after 4:00pm PT

  • Credit card payments made AFTER 4:00pm PT are considered the next day, and will likely transfer to the your bank 2 business days later. 
  • For example, a payment made on Monday at 4:14pm PT will be available on Wednesday instead of Tuesday.
  • Remember: all times are approximate and may be subject to delay based on bank processes.
