I just passed my SSCP a week ago and submitted my endorsement application barely 3 working days ago. I've already received the application approval, so it was a really pleasant surprise, given that I've been reading that the endorsement process has typically been taking weeks.
In the endorsement email, it asks me to wait for "at least 24 hours" for the system to update before making payment. But when I login to the Member Dashboard, I already see the "Pay" button enabled. I don't mind waiting for 24 hours and pay tomorrow, but I'm curious - does the "Pay" button indicate that it's ok to pay before the 24 hours are up? (It wasn't even 2 minutes after receiving the email that I logged in to see the button there.)
Update: It's been more than 24 hours. Made payment, got the email!
But despite that, there's still the section on the dashboard asking me to make my first AMF payment. I see additional navigation items now (Benefits / CPE), but the Profile still states that I'm a Non-Member.
Edit: I realized the membership will only begin in June.
