The time it takes for your payment to reach your institution can vary depending on the payment method.
From the moment Flywire receives the funds from your bank, it takes two to three business days for us to process and deliver the payment to your institution. However, this timeframe is also dependent on the remitting bank (your bank) as they determine how fast they can release your funds.
Card or other online payment methods
If you have chosen to pay by card or other online payment methods, your payment is automatically guaranteed to your institution. Typically, funds are delivered within two to three business days for processing. If you provide your institution with your payment ID, they can look up your account and see that your funds will be delivered shortly.
- Regardless of payment method, you will receive two confirmation emails: one when Flywire receives your funds and another once your funds are delivered to your institution. You can track your payment status at any time through your Flywire account or tracking link.
- We encourage you to send your payment to Flywire at least three to five business days before your institution’s payment deadline. Flywire will not charge you any penalty, but your institution may have a late fee which, unfortunately, is out of our control.
- Most funds are delivered within 8-24hrs to institutions. In some cases, institutions request that Flywire only deliver funds on particular day of the week or month. In this case, your payment may take 2-4 business days to move from “Received” to “Delivered”.
