Jpay take about 24 hours to clear. He needs to have the money the day before he goes to the store. So if he goes to the store on a Thursday, Wednesday night they fill out the sheet. If he goes to the store on Friday, Wednesday early should be ok, but it is still close.

Until he receives a print out, the money wont be on his account.

If you mail the money order, it has to go to Jpay in Florida now. Takes longer than Jpay online.

In NY, you will not get a commissary sheet the night before, if you don't have money on your acct.

It takes 24 hrs to process, so early wed you might be ok. I wont be 100% with that. My guy gets his commissary paper the night before at both places he has stayed. They have to fill it out and hang it in. Next day go to commissary.
