I'm wanting to know after you go green, how long should it take for someone to pay you? I traded with someone who said I would be paid upon green. That was almost a week ago. When I went green, he said something about waiting until verification. So I waited and the next day asked him the status and he said that accounts were being verified that night. That was 4 days ago and he claims that he still hasn't heard anything. If you're going to pay on green then you ought to pay once I go green. I'm new here but the other two traders i worked with paid me on green. One person paid me the same day. The next person paid me after my account was verified which was about a day and a half later and I had no problems with that. I beleive that this perosn is lying to me and just doesn't have the money but before I jump to conclusions I just would like to know if it's normal to wait a week after going green.

No, they should disclose [b0f50f4bcff]beforehand[/b0f50f4bcff] if they are waiting for their account to verify before paying. There's really no set time limit but I would expect to be paid within 24 - 48 hours unless it was mentioned before the trade was confirmed. There's always, of course, emergencies and what not but that doesn't really happen often.

no you shouldnt have to wait that was not the agreement. I would pm a moderator and ask them what you should do and ask them about posting in the scammers section

I would also just check his TR and feedback and see if anything indicates that this is a recurring trend. Sometimes, (at least in my experience) people say "pay on green" but really mean, "I'll pay you when I cash out." A week and a half does seem kind of excessive though.

Thats BS..If he says green you dont wait for approval.A week to get paid for a green is unacceptable.Any trade that has ever greened for me was paid within 24 hrs.Watch out for those users that flip the script on you like that.Grimey

I agree with all above, CLEARLY STATE in post,pm, and/or Trade Module exactly how payment is made. IF this trade was on a site like macrobucks, or rocketbills who have very fast payouts (usually within 24hrs) this person was taking advantage of the term "pay on green", but he/she was really waiting for that payment.

I state in my post if your less then 7TR I must have you verified by the site to be paid.
