Why do you need up to three business days to pay me?

Payment times from Paid

The time it takes us to pay you (using our faster payment service) depends on what time your client agrees completion of a work. If the client confirms completion of the work outside business hours, we may need up to three business days for Paid to ensure you get your money. 

Paid aims to use the UK Faster Payments system which means cleared funds within two hours of us sending the payment. Please see http://www.fasterpayments.org.uk for details. 

However, there are limits for sending per day which we have to work within. 3 business days allows us time for the worst case scenario, which is a BACs transaction.
