At the moment, it takes 30 days for payments to be released after they have been posted to PACTs. Now, this has been a pain point for me for quite a while now, as I usually prefer working on freelance platforms since I can get paid faster (usually 6 days or bi-weekly depending on the platform).
Thankfully, this is an issue that has been raised by the Community Advisory Board (CAB) and you can find it posted here: https://github.com/topcoderinc/cab/issues/21
The reason I'm creating this thread is to raise awareness about it. If you would like Topcoder PACTs payments to be released quicker, you can post show interest by reacting with a "thumbs up" on the issue.
If you're interested in other CAB issues, you can find all of them at https://github.com/topcoderinc/cab/issues. They're open to all members of the Topcoder community.
Thank you for reading.
