Is it normal for a day delay on transfer funds?

    Sorry for this thread, but I just wanna ask some of you on how long it normally takes for your funds to get into your bank account?

    The reason I'm asking this is because since I had my bank account, the money I earned from Mturk would get sent within the whole day (I get a message around early Monday and it gets send within the next day). But the recent transfer says that the funds are still processing. I don't know if it's slow day of the bank I'm using or it's because people are going back to work suddenly. But I'm just worried that they would process it and then says the transfer failed.

    My transfer yesterday took a little longer than usual to process, about 11 hours from the request received email to the deposit sent email. Still got the money in my bank account next business day as usual.

    If mturk says it's processing, that's on mturk's end, not your bank. If you got the deposit sent email yesterday and don't see the money yet, that would be your bank and it should show up soon.

    I just saw someone in the daily thread asking about the same thing. Seems like mturk is having some trouble with the latest transfers. You'll get your money eventually, but I can't say when for sure.

    Yeah, I posted that thread on reddit.

    I've only got one email saying "Your direct deposit request has been received", but not "Your direct deposit has been sent to your bank account". What does that mean?

    Oh, okay. So it's just Mturk that's just being slow. I saw other people saying that they had the same issue.

    I don't mean reddit, I mean another member here is still waiting on their transfer to process.

    Today's daily thread. Someone mentioned it a few minutes ago. I don't know how much they've talked about it, I only saw the one post expressing frustration.

    Your transfer may be delayed if it was sent to you on weekends or public holidays because most banks process the transfer only on business days. However, if it was sent on a business day but you still don't see them in your bank account for several days, the transfer may have failed. For example, I recently ordered aroma candles from a local store. I am a vegan and it is quite difficult for me to find vegan candles, but I found a local vegan store that sells a lot of different vegan items. Generally, I was surprised by how many cool businesses there are in my city. Now I find out about all the local offers thanks to best offers San Diego. So, I immediately decided to order 5 pieces. I ordered them on Friday and only had them on Friday, because of the weekend. So don't worry, maybe your transfer hasn't been processed yet.
