Just curious---why earnings received by check?

Locked

#1 by gorfman44 » Sat Feb 25, 2012 16:49

I have noticed that some members choose to receive earnings by check rather than Paypal or Alterpay. Just curious as to why this choice rather than probably faster pay by automatic transfer? I realize some may not have a checking account, etc, but all things considered, is there another reason or just personal preference? This is not a criticism, just wondered if I was missing something. Thanks for your replys.

I prefer check and usually cash out by way of check.

Actually, I have 2 checking accounts.

There is no time restraint for me in regards to being in a hurry for it. I figure I will get it when I get it. :mrgreen:

I know as a norm, members like to cash out as soon as they reach the minimum amount to do so.
Personally speaking, I can't do a whole lot with $6 dollars. I prefer to wait about cashing out til I have
something a little more substantial.

I must say, that has always been one thing I really like about CS, is that check option. I've never had
a problem receiving my check.

IF you are in the USA, I also think you save the company (CS) and yourself money, by choosing the check
option and waiting til you have a little substantial amount before cashing out. All those AP and PP fees, is
just money tossed to AP and PP. A whole lot of money going to processing fees. I suppose they pay some
sort of check processor fee too but I just betcha, it is nothing like AP and PP fees.

That would be highly irrelevant since CS passes the fees along to you.

I too do the check method.. I wait till I have a big amount to cash out and using the check method is cheaper than PP fee's for me.

I am an army wife and I was also in Europe (stationed there) and I used the check method there as well and never lost one in the mail..

Not too sure what you mean Darkstar2.

It's only $1.50 for withdraw by check if you are a USA resident.

Many years ago, checks was the main option for users receive cash on almost all PTCs sites...

Checks still are a good option because you don't need to worry about being screwed by any payment processing company. :roll:

The United States, Canada and Mexico pay $1.50!

The Rest of the World pay $2.00!

The bank does not charge me anything to cash or deposit a check.

Anyway, the question in the topic is why some members choose check as their option for payout.
And that's why I choose check, I prefer it over the other options, I'm in no big hurry to get it, I've
never had a check lost or stolen, I prefer to wait til I have some substantial earnings before cashing
out, I prefer to not make the online payment processors any richer than they already are, I have
other checks to cash every month, I receive the check within just a few days of the processing so
in reality I get the check about as fast if not faster than if I did direct deposit from an online payment
processor.

On another note, in the beginning of ClixSense, paypal was not an option. I don't think alertpay
was either. More recently, alertpay has been having a lot of problems and not sure how all that
is going to pan out for them.

Out of being paid almost 60 times, I guess about 50 of those were checks.
