i think 13 days pending clearance is too long.

what about make it 3 to 4 days?


I agree. It’s not really good as we already lose 20% of money - AND we also have to wait 2 weeks? Doesn’t make sense.


you seriously can’t wait 2 weeks for your 20 bucks?

most jobs have a clearing time. Why would this site be any different?

you do know about the payapl fees? you are probably better off waiting a month or 2 until you get some real money to withdraw.


in other site that i work 2-4 days they can send the payment to your paypal account :slight_smile:


Actually, on some other sites I used before (not exactly like Fiverr, but similar concept) it can be less than a week…


I’m agreed with you and posted similar suggestion; 3-4 days is fine.


Since it’s high risk due to the numerous buyers and sellers and multiple claims and transactions, to reduce the clearance time would not only put Fiverr at risk, but the seller as well. The reason it takes so long to clear is to make sure that both the buyer and seller are happy, and to adhere to Paypal’s rules and regulations. Aka, I don’t think this will change any time soon, and in fact, is kind of a good placeholder to have. In most jobs a 1 to 2 week wait between pay is about average. For an online marketplace like this, that is a pretty quick withdrawal time. Other sites can do smaller withdrawal times as there isn’t as much risk or traffic going through the pages.




i hope fiverr will change their time about pending clearance.

make it 2-4 days and 2-3 days for paypal withdrawal.

cheers! :smiley:


It is quite annoying, but if you think of it this way it doesn’t seem so bad: when you work at a normal job, you only get paid every 2 weeks, so Fiverr is really no different than that. :slight_smile:


14 days pending clearance is too long :)>-


Lookie here guys. Personally guaranteed payment within 14 days is not that bad. I’m sure there are specific factors which stipulate this wait period. Exercise a bit of patience. The money will come to you at the end of the 14 day wait.


While 14 days payment alone is somewhat understandable, I’m confused at some of the examples, like how does direct deposit and check clearance apply when we are not talking about direct deposit or clearing checks. It seems people suggest that this has nothing to do with, and I don’t understand how that is the case. I work on Elance. I withdraw to paypal, and it only takes 24-48 hours at most for it to arrive in my account! (It’s still only 10 days to get a check or direct deposit!) So I just want a clear and detailed explanation on why it takes so long.

I think it’s a fair question that many users have, that they want to understand, and I don’t understand the saracastic and judgement

To user kjblynx: Please show me where Paypal policy, rules, or regulation dictates a 14 day wait time. If this is the case, why can I withdraw within two days?

See, sometimes it isn’t about if someone can wait two weeks for their money. If I have many places where I can do business, it becomes this question: do I have to wait for it?

I like so far and will continue to work for them. I would however invest more time here if they could pay me faster, so instead I focus on the services like Elance that offer me larger jobs and nearly instant payment. (Plus, they are always available to explain how their payment system works directly.)


i understand you johnbradleypeel. is there any fiverr staff explain how the pending clearance take 14 days? :)]




fiverr makes money off the interest of the huge loads of money in their accounts too…


I always wondered about the long wait times. I totally understand the need for a clearance time, but two weeks is quite a long stretch.


Reply to @babybear613: The fastest I’ve ever been paid at a job is every 2 weeks and the slowest is monthly. So, 14 days seems pretty normal to me. In fact, daily or weekly paid wages is not the norm.
