TopCoder begins the payment process for Studio contests once the final files for the contest have been downloaded by the contest holder. This is the same day the contest holder designates winners. It takes an average of 2 business days to get the payment into the system. However, there are two scenarios where a payment may not be scheduled right away:
1) If the payment is an “additional prize” or other non-conventional payment. These types of payments can take up to 7 days to enter the system and be scheduled for payment.
2) If Final Fixes are requested. Payment is scheduled once fixes are delivered to the contest holder.
