Paying by Credit Card

The Common App won't let you submit your common app until you have paid. I've heard that processing a credit card payment takes four days or so, so if I paid now (Yes, I know I procrastinated), would I be able to submit my common app on time?

    Pay by credit card and save the conformation email. Choose the mail check as the payment option and then you can submit your stuff.
    i had the same problem, i emailed them and received this reply: Thank you for your message.
    If you have received a valid payment receipt from a Sallie Mae payment (email confirmation), but the payment is not showing up in the Common App Online, please use the “Other Fee Waiver” option or “Mail Check” to indicate payment. This will allow you to continue with the submission process. Your record will be updated within the next 24-48 hours to indicate the successful credit card payment.

    Thank you. I'm getting a little frantic with crunch time so close, but this makes me calm down a little.

    Is that email from the Sallie Mae people? And if so, will Stanford be expecting a check in the mail even though I submitted a credit card payment?

    So I am trying to pay right now, but the website directed me to a website to pay for a Brown University $75 fee.... I'm not even applying to Brown and it isn't on my CommonApp list. ****.
