Do freelancers get paid fast?

I am considering trying out freelance work for the first time in my life, and so far I have no clue where to begin. I am looking at the likes of Fiverr, Upwork, and other freelance sites. But I guess I just want to know this, how fast do you receive payment on any sites? How fast should one be paid for freelance work? Of course it depends on the work. I'm considering copy-writing work, as I'm good with copy and can write up a good one. And I can usually crack something out within hours. Anyway, do freelancers get paid fast? And if not, what are some sites that do pay fast?

I imagine it is, simply because we're social distancing, and doing freelance work online is probably the best thing you can do until things clear up. I personally feel this pandemic is going to last another year or more. This is why it's probably a good idea to look into freelance work, as you can do it from the comfort of your home.
