If you have selected Instant Transfer, you should see the money in your bank account in minutes, but this timeframe may vary depending on the bank. If you can’t see the money in your bank account after 30 minutes, contact your bank for more information. Our team members can’t change the status of your transfer.

The Standard transfer to your bank usually completes in 1 working day, but depending on your bank's clearing process, it may take 3-5* working days. Keep in mind that holidays aren't working days.

Standard transfers to your eligible debit card take approximately 48 hours.
