If participants pay with their US checking account, their payment takes 4-5 business days to be processed.
During this time, the payment is labeled “pending.” A “pending” payment means that the participant has paid and completed their booking, but the funds are not yet available to the organizer.
After 5 business days, the payment will automatically change status and will not be "pending" anymore.
What does it mean it takes "5 Business Days"?
"5 Business Days" means completing a payment can sometimes take up to 11 full days.
"5 Business Days" Example:
A traveler books on Friday afternoon January 1st.
The bank start processing the payment on Monday, January 4th.
From then, it takes 5 business days until the payment completes.
Only on Monday, January 11th will the payment be complete.
