Did payments just get earlier/quicker?

Hey!

So, typically my payments are available on Tuesday of each week.

However this week - I had my payment from 2 weeks ago available on Tuesday (as normal) but then today (Friday) I see that last weeks payment is also available. 

Was there a change?

I'm seeing the same thing, not aware of any changes.

 

A bug maybe ?

Upwork have been testing shorter security holds for a while now, to see if it can be shortened all around or at least for certain types of contracts.

 

Don't get used to it, it seems to affect accounts for short periods before returning to "normal"

I just noticed this as well this morning. My payments are always available on Wednesdays 03:00 GMT+3 but they are available now. I was baffled a little bit.

I just came to community discussions to ask the same question. I noticed the same thing, my funds arrived 4 days earlier than the actual date. Well, they should do it in a long run. It's good for us!

Same thing with me. But can we not withdraw these funds?Is there any issue if we withdraw the funds? Anyone know about it and can guide me?

 

Thanks

 If the funds are available you can withdraw them. Just don't get used to / start relying on them coming early as it won't last.....

I got a payment quicker last night also. I withdrew it to Paypal and it still hasn't shown up. I know sometimes it can take some time, but I just find it odd because they have ALWAYS come through in a matter of minutes.  I'm not sure if it's related or not.
