Question How long for Y-111 Upgrade results?

I purchased an upgrade to Y-111 from previously done Y-67. Dashboard shows "Results Completed 6/17/2018" but nothing changed. There aren't columns for Y-111 in the match list and Advanced Matches has no checkbox for Y-111 tests.

It's been 4 days. How long does it take for the Y-111 upgrade results?

What do you mean by 4 days? Do you mean you ordered the upgrade 4 days ago? If so I would say the results completed entry is probably not correct. When you order an upgrade they have to test your sample to get the results. It should give you an estimate of the wait time. So if you click on "Complete Order History" there will be entries for Y-DNA111 and it should give dates there for when you ordered and when it was batched and when results were completed. If it says "pending" you click above where it says "Check the status of pending tests" and it will show the estimate to when results are expected for the test(s) that you ordered.

Perfect. Found the estimate. Looks like 2-4 weeks. Thanks.

I thought perhaps they already did the test and upgrading it was just a matter of making the data available to the match engines... so it would be days not weeks. It isn't that way.

No they don't test all the markers and then wait for you to pay to unlock the ones you want to see. When you order an upgrade they take some of your stored DNA and run a test for the additional markers. If there is not enough of your DNA left in storage, they send you a new collection kit.
