Alerts will update as soon as a transaction is posted on an account. We have found the exception to this rule to be when a credit-based debit card transaction is conducted.

What are “real time alerts”?

Alerts are prompted as a transaction posts to an account. The timing of the transaction post will vary depending on the source of the transaction. Signature transactions could take up to 3 days to post.
