I received an email from Prosper today detailing a new feature and inviting me into the beta: Rapid Transfers
Prosper is testing a new service called “Rapid Transfer” for established customers. We’d like to invite you to participate.
If you initiate a transfer of more than $500 before Noon PST Friday May 18th, we will approve your transfer within fifteen minutes and you will be able to begin bidding immediately. Please note the transfer page may show the status as in-process for a couple of days even after the money has been approved.
This is a great time on Prosper as there are plenty of excellent high-quality listings.

Rapid transfer is one of the most requested features on the forums and your response will help us gauge interest and determine whether to extend this program.
Thank you for all your support and we look forward to your continued participation in Prosper.

I tried it. It worked. Sweet!!! I love this feature… While the amount is slightly high by my standards if there is ever a listing that I NEED to bid on, now I can.
I think this feature should be made permanent and for all amounts greater than $50 for all lenders with loan balances 10 times greater than the transfer amount. In other words, you need a $500 loan portfolio to make a $50 rapid transfer or a $5,000 loan portfolio to make a $500 rapid transfer.
