Earnest is currently unable to support same-day payments. The earliest payment date available at any given time will be the earliest option available from within the online payment option. Generally, the earliest date available will be 1-2 business days from the day you schedule the payment. (When we receive a payment via paper check, it takes 3-5 business days for the payment to be applied to your account.)
Please note that payments are credited on the day they finish processing. This means that there are usually a few days between when a payment is initiated (or when a check is received) and when the payment finishes processing, during which time you will accrue interest. To maximize the possibility that your payment will be applied to your account on your preferred date, we recommend initiating the payment early enough to anticipate our processing time.
