    Hey guys,

    im kind of old school and have been receiving payments by check,but now there are some networks that will only pay by wire.

    A wire was sent on friday,although i don't see it in my account :(

    How long does it usually take ? This is my first time doing a wire.

    International - 5 working days.
    Same country between 2 different Banks - 3 working days.
    Internal Bank transfer - 1 working day.

    This could vary from bank to bank and country.

    Yeah it really depends on the banks. I usually get them the next business day. So probably at 9am you should have received it.

    Well im from Canada and the wire is coming from the US,so i guess (as ExtraWinner mentioned) it will take 5 days.

    Thats strange because i sometimes receive checks from the US in 3-4 days,and a bank wire is 5 days.This does not make sense.:eek:

    You would be surprised how much your money have to go through before getting to your account.

    How much it is? As if its more than 2K they could be doing antiterrorism and antimafia checks :p

    This is why it takes so long :p

    checks on over $2K!?! it was over $10K, and that was due to the trafficking.
    and don't be surprised at the "deductions" the bank takes on wired transactions. expect at least $75. less.

    I received a 4000$ check for the island of man(Costa rica, were all major gambling sites have their banks and servers), and 2 days after I cashed the chek the director of my bank called me to ask various questions.


    It was pretty funny.
