We send out payments on the 15th of each month.

Payout Methods

You have the option of receiving payment electronically or a physical check by mail. Set your payout preferences by choosing the option that works best for you.

Electronic Options

You must reach a minimum balance of $25 and your payment is immediately transferred into your account.

Note: To successfully receive payment, please ensure that you have already registered with one of the following payment services.

  • PayPal web-based service that allows you to send and receive monetary payments securely and instantly over the internet. To manage your PayPal or other payment settings, click here.
  • Skrill/Moneybookers

Note: Due to fees charged by Skrill, 4% of your payment will be deducted at each payout if this option is selected.


To ensure you receive your payouts in a timely manner, please make sure that your payout preferences are always current and up to date.
