Hi Roma,


I checked the transaction and can confirm that it was successful from our end. Please note that Direct to Local Bank transaction is processed within four business days. If the transaction still hasn't reflected on your account after eight business days, you can come back here, and we will assist you further. Please also take note that bank holidays both in the U.S, and your location may affect these withdrawals. In the meantime, please read up on this help article for more information about Direct to Local Bank Timings and Fees.


Thank you.

The update removes the security-hold period for hourly contracts so your earnings are available 5 days earlier for withdrawal, but it doesn't change the time it takes to reach your bank account.
