How Long Will It Take To Receive Cash From Our Baby Registry After A Transfer Request?

Anticipation is building, the baby registry is set, and friends and family are eager to shower you with love and support. As expecting parents, you’re thrilled not only about the impending arrival of your tiny human but also about the thoughtful funds waiting to be received. But how long does it take for those registry contributions to reach your hands once you’ve initiated the transfer? PayPal, Venmo, and Cash App all offer two kinds of deposits – first, the standard bank transfer, and second, the Instant Deposit or Transfer.

A standard bank transfer is free. However, it will take 1-3 business days.

An instant transfer appears within 30 minutes. However, there is a fee. PayPal takes a 1% fee. Venmo takes a 1% fee. Cash App takes a 1.5% fee
