Cheque payments are processed 9-16 days after your request, on Wednesdays each week. After submitting your first cheque request, it takes 9-16 days to cycle through the verification process before the cheque can be issued. A cheque needs to be requested by Monday, 5:59 a.m. GMT in order to process in 9 days.
If a Wednesday falls on a U.S. national holiday, payments are issued on the next working business day.
