A WU that is processed must first be uploaded meaning returning the final work it has done.

Afterwards the result must be returned. Returning a result means claiming your credit for the WU that has been processed. 3 returned results must first be compared. If these 3 results are matching, then the claimed credit is granted.

Have a look here to have a detailed explanation about credit.

At the end, it means 3 PC's must have returned their claimed credit and this can take maximum 14 days as the reported deadline of a WU is 14 days.

One of the key components in granting credits is the verifier. There has been some trouble keeping it running smoothly (it is down again). The verifier takes the 3 returned results and determines if they are the same. Credit cannot be granted before the verifier makes this determination.
