I think you are asking about the security period. The security period is UTC and the same across the board regardless of time of release. So it's 5 days from the day of release midnight UTC.

 

So, as an example, I had someone release this morning for me (Sept 20th). The money is available to me on Sept 25 UTC midnight. That is 8pm EST on Sept 24th for me. The time it is released within that day doesn't matter. 

 

Go into your reports and look at pending after it's released from escrow, and you will see what day it's available. Everything you need to know about where your money is at in the system is in the basic default report.

Hi Noureldin,

 

A payment usually becomes available for the freelancer to withdraw at 12am UTC on the date that's showing in the Transaction History.

 

Thank you.

Go to a world clock site and figure out what time in your time zone is 12 midnight UTC on that date. Or calculate what time it is in your time zone for 8pm EST.
