    Is anyone still waiting on approval from Internet things and user behaviour from 4/7?

    How long is the max to wait for approval before you starting querying it?

    I am waiting too, I think a few now have them set to auto approve after the 21 days (that's the impression I got from a few messages I've received replies from) Although no harm in dropping the researcher a nice message asking if it went okay and when its likely to be approved.

    The bank option does state within an hour but I found the card cash out the same as if receiving a 'refund' back to the card, IE my nationwide was always 24 hours, however a friends barclays took 3 days. I think some banks do have different processing times too but not sure why it would take so long to bank I'm assuming they are using Faster payments to bank accounts.

    Yep def seems like Tues/Fri. I just had the message from Circle my cashout reached them just now.

    About Circle.

    Do you need to add a bank card or only add a bank account?

    I would think a bank card is only necessary if you want to send money to Circle. However, a site I read about Circle said adding a bank card is part of the steps when joining.

    HI, I can't seem to find the Circle referral thread on here, I don't suppose you could post a link, could you, please? Who knows, someone might use it.
