Title: Why lending club transactions take so long to complete?
Post by: dx2018 on January 24, 2019, 12:39:33 AM
Any idea why lending club transactions take so long to complete? It is pretty annoying that many transactions are canceled because of the payment in the following day.

I am also investing in Chinese P2ps, where any transaction is committed within seconds. Even the deposits or withdraws < 750K USD are completed immediately after you click the button.

Just wondering why LC takes this long, do people really sit behind to manually check the data?

Thanks in advance

By all accounts the Chinese P2P is in crisis and you are holding that up as an example to follow? That is confusing.

I presume you are talking about the secondary market.  Its because when LC linked to folio, they did a crude job of hooking up the accounting between the two systems.  It isn't real time.  I figure they intended to get back to it and clean it up (about 5 years ago), but the volume never materialized in the secondary market, so they figured it wasn't worth their time to devote development $ to it.
