I really do love this, good job.  It never really bothered me having a 10 day hold.  So long as I worked each week, I would always get paid every wednesday.  But this way works better and is more convenient, maybe it can stick around after Covid, just as another perk for Top Rated people.

I cannot find that option in the notification settings.

You can't disable payments and financial related emails. 

Simply use your email filter to block these email.  Smiley Happy

Well this isn't true always. I'm a TOP RATED freelancer but last Friday there was no faster payout. When I asked Upwork help they told my client had a payment issue so they cannot pay as they say and I have to wait until next Wednesday, even if my client resolves the issue immediately and pay.

I have been receiving early payouts for several weeks. However, this week, it wasn't offered. Is there a reason for that?

Hi Anita,

 

If there are any issues with charging the client's billing method on time or the client disputes your hours, your payment will be delayed. Unfortunately, we won't be able to share more information about the client's account, however, you will receive a notification if there are further issues with the contract.

Good day, i have this feature last week for 2 of my hourly contracts. Today i checked and only the other client has the payment ready, my other contract is still in pending. But last week both clients had a payment early.

It means there was an issue with the charge originally not going through when the client was charged on Monday.

 

It's best not to RELY on it coming early.
