How to process payment faster

A freelancer did some work for me on an hourly contract on Sunday. He filed a 1.5 hour time log manually which I agree with and am fine with. 
From what I understand since he logged his time (done in last week) only this week, he will get paid automatically from my account at the end of this week. Is there any way to process this faster? I don't want the guy to wait too long if that makes sense.

Hi Syed,


Freelancers receive their payment for hourly contracts following the weekly billing cycleThe weekly billing period begins Monday at midnight UTC and ends Sunday at 23:59 UTC. All Reports in Upwork are based on this standardized timing. Hourly and weekly payments enter the security period after the client review period closes on Friday; therefore, funds typically become available on the following Wednesday.
