Below is a case study for development, I don't understand the meaning of "clear" in below sentences.
Please help to explain, and if possible, also help to provide the definition from dictionary because I have tried to find the exact meaning from Oxford but can't find the correct explanation.

message traffic between systems. Many existing components of the older payment system
were able to be adapted to work with the new messaging layer, preserving investment in
these programs. The government requirement was to be able to clear payments in under two
hours. However, this solution is technically capable of completing its processing in seconds. It
handles millions of transactions every day.
'If a payment that is made into your bank account clears, or a bank clears it, the money is available for you to use.'── quoted from http://www.oxfordlearnersdictionarie...nglish/clear_2 Definition#13.
