When someone says that he has paid you, it sometimes takes a day or two for you to see the money in your bank account.   Even if you've received a proof of payment it doesn't mean that the money is in your account and available to spend. 

With CHIPS you are notified of all payments made into your CHIPS account and the money is available immediately for you to use.
