MPESA Withdrawal Issues

Hello guys, I usually get my funds every Wednesday. Upwork automatically initiates the process as per the settings. However, today I got a message, 'We attempted to process your recent payment request, but unfortunately, it failed.'

I re-updated my payment method (M-Pesa) and withdrew money manually. At other times, the process takes less than one hour. But today, it's been 5 hours since I withdrew and not received the money. Who else is experiencing this? How do I go about it? 

Thank you.

Hi Joseph,


Please allow up to 24 hours for your funds to be loaded on your account. If you haven't received them after 24 hours, feel free to follow up here and our team will assist you further. Thank you.

It's alright, I will give the feedback after 24 hours.
Thank you.

Did you receive the funds after the 24hrs period as promised or was there an issue that rest of us will encounter in future?

Yes, the money reflected  before 24 hours elapsed. It  took  around  20  hours, the longest  I have  ever experience. Most of the  times, it takes less than  one  hour.
