Why does it take so long for funds to clear?


I’m new to Fiverr selling and am wondering why it takes so long for the funds to clear once an order has been delivered and the payment has been made?


It’s a tradition on freelancing sites that payments, though approved by Buyer/Client, is subject to “clearing period” which ranges from 7 days on some sites, to months on some others. It is a form of safeguard put in place for the interest of the Seller/Contractor and the Buyer/Client. On here, it takes 14 days for payments to clear except for TRS class of Sellers whose payments clear within 7 days.


This is how the system works. You may call it "A security purpose."
Moreover, TRS has half of the time to clear the funds. Run for it! :smile:
