In order to understand how long it takes an issuer to post your credit card payments, it’s important to know the difference between “credited,” “posted,” and “cleared.” When you submit a payment, the amount is credited, meaning the issuer recognizes you paid it. But it may not post, or be reflected in your available credit, for another day or two. When a payment is cleared, the issuer has actually received the money. As long as your payment is at least credited by the due date, it’s considered on time, assuming the transaction goes through.
To avoid any worry about how long it will take for a credit card payment to post, set up your account for autopay. This feature automatically debits your bank account for a pre-determined amount on the card’s payment due date. As long as you have enough money in the account to cover the transaction, your payments will never be late. You should be able to set up autopay online or by calling your issuer’s customer service department.
