Holiday bank closures impact timelines for receiving payments from Wave. We’ve listed the dates that banks will be closed in Canada and the United States so you can plan ahead.
Why can’t I get paid on holidays?
Wave can only deposit funds into your bank account on business days. If your Wave payments account is active, credit card transactions normally post within two business days. Since the holidays below are considered business days, instructions sent to your bank will not be posted until the banks have re-opened.
As an example of how this would affect you, if you were to expecting a transaction to be deposited on Labour Day, which falls on Monday, September 3rd, 2018:
If the transaction was processed before 5pm on Thursday, August 30th, it would deposit on Tuesday, September 4th.
If it was processed before 5pm on Friday, August 31st, it would deposit on Wednesday, September 5th.
