Purpose of pending clearance?

No one has shockingly asked this yet…

How and why is it deemed fair that the client/customer receives their commission right away once sent, yet US (the artists) have to WAIT for our hard earned money?


In my ‘real world’ job, I was paid 4 weeks in arrears.

Can’t see the problem with waiting for 14-17 days. :slightly_smiling_face:


If you type “why have a clearing period” in the search bar above there are several posts on this much discussed topic.


I’m curious about this part of your question. What does this mean? The funds paid by the buyer are held in a sort of escrow while pending clearance. If something goes wrong with the transaction (like a chargeback) Fiverr does not get paid either.
