How to get paid from paypal by check?????

I have a problem. I'm trying to help out my mother who is ill right now and needs to make a little extra money. So I've been helping her get started on gpt sites because I've had great success with them. So I set up a paypal account for her, she just made her first 12.00 in a few days on one site and wanted to receive a check in the mail. She doesn't have a bank account or credit card and I thought she didn't have to have one just to request a check. I have been paid from paypal by check but when I first joined my account was marked verified because I had started out with a bank account to transfer my money that way. Her account is still marked unverified. She tried requesting a check and it keeps asking her to add a bank account or credit card in order to verify her address first before sending the check. I feel so bad for her now because she really tried hard to make her first 12.00, lol, and now she can't get paid yet. I do understand paypal needs to be safe and verify accounts but I think they should atleast send out checks without having to have a credit card especially if it's a small amount. Is there another site for her to use like paypal that doesn't require credit a card so she can start receiving her money from the gpt sites? Please help. I know some sites do send checks and she will probably end up doing that but she was trying to work on some sites that pay daily so she can get some quick money. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much:)

Thanks. Yes I have heard of revolution money. I actually started the process of signing up for it and stopped once they asked for my social. I'm sure it's safe because I have seen so many people have also been paid the 25.00 but I'm still a little unsure about giving my social. I could barely give my social on hits4pay but I've been a member for so long now I feel okay about it. Just me I guess. I think since the site is still so new I'm not sure about it yet. I did tell my mom about it but she's a little uncomfortable with it too. So you don't have to have a bank account or credit card with them to request a check?

Can she transfer the money to you and you can request a check - or transfer the money to your bank account and cut her a check.

Transferring her paypal payment into your account and later releasing a check for her isn't going to solve her problems in the long run. It would be advisable to ask your friend to open a bank account with internet banking facilities. This is to save herself from future hassles and solve the updating of banking details in her paypal account. This will enable her to have a more streamline convenience on her next paypal payment.

Paypal - PayPal lets you send money to anyone with email. PayPal is free for consumers and works seamlessly with your existing credit card and checking account.
What you can do is have the fund transferred to your paypal. When it is transferred you can have it put in a check then just give her the money. That's the easiest thing to do right now.

I did not know Paypal ever sent Checks? I have always had a Debit Card with them, and that is the way I get my Money. But I know there are a lot of FREE sites out there you can get paid by Check. I am not sure what ones are still in existance though, but I used to do some this way back when I had more time to be online. Good Luck with helping your Mom. I know for me, any little bit of extra $$ I can make online besides my work income is sure nice. Sounds like the only way for your Mom to get any $$ from Paypal could be to get an account first?

I'm not sure if paypal will do this with an unverified account but I Have a paypal debt card. So when my http://cashtrek.info online business pays me $150, it is available immediately on my paypal debt card and I can use it just like an ATM or Credit card. Cashtrek - Tom

What about sending the money to your paypal account, and then pulling it out that way? That could be something you guys would be able to do so you can actually get the money. it might be nice to do it that way. Or even go about opening a free checking account for her, just so she has a bank account. Nothing fancy, just a basic account.

Why not just open a checking account for her just for this reason? I have a free checking account at a nationwide bank, no minimum, free checks the works. And Ih ave that account just to PayPal. I deposit money in there, they transfer it to PayPal and use it that way. This way my household money is not intermingled with my GPT earnings, not that it is so much, I just don't want my personal info out there in cyber space. Maybe open a joint checking account if she has a problem openin on her own and then she has access to both accounts.
