What's Instant Pay?
Instant Pay is a feature that allows you to withdraw all or some of your pending earnings immediately. While you'll always be paid per the regular schedule on Mondays, Instant Pay can be a great option if you need to access your funds earlier for any reason.
Why is it considered beta?
While the feature has been tested and works, we're still working to understand how Instant Pay will be used. The times it is available, the amount of funds available, the minimum, the fee, and any other details are subject to change without notice.
How does it work?
When available, you'll click the "Request Instant Pay" button shown next to the Pending Earnings amount shown on the Earnings tab of your Dashboard. After confirming, we'll send the funds to you immediately. Please note, your preferred payment method may take a moment to process and display the funds after we send them.
What funds are available?
The amount available depends on a variety of factors. You'll be able to see your available amount after clicking the "Request Instant Pay" button.
Experts must have a minimum of $5 in pending earnings to request Instant Pay.
When is it available?
Instant Pay is available for use every day except Monday (you'll be paid on Mondays per the regular schedule.) It is only available between the hours of 10 AM central through 11 PM central.
How much does it cost?
Each Instant Pay request will cost $1.50. This amount will be deducted from your pending earnings.
Why is there a fee?
Our payment processor charges us fees to send you funds. For the regularly scheduled payout on Monday, we've always covered these fees, and we will continue to cover these fees. Since Instant Pay is offered as a convenience to you, we are passing along the processing fees for those payouts, however.
How often can I use it?
You may request Instant Pay once per day, Tuesday - Sunday. Since you'll already receive a payment on Monday, Instant Pay isn't available on that day.
How much will I receive?
The amount you'll receive will be shown to you after you click the "Request Instant Pay" button. Please note, that this amount may not reflect all of your earnings, including incentives. Any funds not withdrawn via Instant Pay will be paid automatically during the regularly scheduled payout.
Do I have to use Instant Pay?
No! Instant Pay is an optional way to receive your pending earnings faster. If you do not use Instant Pay, your funds will be paid with the regularly scheduled weekly payout. There are no fees for the regularly scheduled weekly payout.
