Faster funding claim is based on a comparison of our policy of making funds available upon receipt of payment instruction versus the typical banking practice of posting funds at settlement. Fraud prevention restrictions may delay availability of funds with or without notice.  Early availability of funds requires payor’s support of direct deposit and is subject to the timing of payor’s payment instruction.

Plus, you’ll get paid up to 2 days faster[4] and avoid check-cashing fees and lines.
