Why does it take so long for credit card balances to update on CK?
I paid off a credit card about a month ago, but CreditKarma (and presumably the credit bureaus) still show a significant balance on the card. Why does it take so long for these balances to be updated, when it's simply a matter of pinging a computer? Do the credit bureaus only perform these updates once a month or something?

Creditors report regularly on their cycle.

Do not ping. Pinging does not transfer information. Pinging only show how quick or not a IP address respond.
