Occasionally, a pending deposit takes longer to clear than other types of deposits
When a bank or other financial institution holds your funds for a short period of time, a pending deposit is not immediately available for use. The bank must first verify your funds and hold them for up to two business days. Even then, if you’ve set up an automatic recurring payment via Transferwise or other service, your deposit may not clear immediately. As a result, you might end up overspending and incurring overdraft fees and late payments. Therefore, you’ll want to budget after your deposit posts.
When a pending deposit is not cleared immediately, it is considered spending on credit and can take up to 10 days to clear. This time period will vary by financial institution, but it is usually longer than a standard deposit. To find out how long a pending deposit will take to clear, consult your account agreement with your bank. It’s best to call customer service if you’re not sure whether your deposit has cleared yet or is being held by the bank.
Occasionally, a deposit doesn’t show up as planned
Sometimes, a pending deposit doesn’t appear in your account as you expect. This is completely normal, as your money is in your account – it is just going through the usual verification process. But you might not be able to use your money immediately because it will take a few days. In such cases, you should contact your bank and explain your situation. It is important to understand that there is no guarantee that the bank will provide you with special services.
There are a few possible reasons why this happens. Sometimes, your deposit wasn’t received, but was processed successfully. It could be due to the time difference between your account and your bank’s processing time. Often, this is because the money you’re waiting for was transferred outside of business hours. Either way, it’s best to wait 24 hours before worrying. Then, gather all the documentation necessary to solve the problem.
