Okay everybody . . I just cashed out on Buxto.com for the first time..don't remember when I joined, but it's been awhile and it pays via Alert Pay. Cash out is $10. I cashed out to my Alert Pay account so.. 1. will see how long it takes. How long has it taken you to cash out on this site? 2. I cashed out to Alert Pay - first time using that processor. Still don't know if there it a fee to accept the cash out but guess I'll soon (hopefully) find out. Only thing I can gather is that if the site pays Alert Pay with a credit card, AP will charge me a fee for going the credit way. What has been your experience with AP in this manner? 3. My first time posting payment proof - any suggestions as to the easiest way to do this? I read somewhere about useing the Prt Scn button on the keyboard but - steps anyone? I have Photobucket if that helps. ANy comments you care to share will be appreciated. I want to know what I am dealing with. Plus - if it does take a long time for payment, do you continue to work the site or stop until you receive payment? I have heard up to 6 months is not unusual for some sites to pay. Do you still work the site during that time?

Yes, but you could also say if you are homeless "at least you have the curb for a pillow". I'll pick up the pennies in the parking lot, but I am not crawling the cutter for them ... not when there are other ways to collect. But to each his own, as they say. What works for one, may or may not work for the other. I know you have good luck and a good base with the bux sites, so I say good for you. You found your niche and that is what makes the pennies roll. NO matter whatelse comes around.

Hi Coffeebreak, Buxto used to pay via paypal and I was kinda disappointed when they took away that option (or that option was removed from them) during the time when I managed payout. For normal members, it took a heck of a long time. I waited months before I got my first payment. My second is currently pending and as soon as it arrives, I have enough to initiate my third. Alertpay... YUCKS! It is bad for those of my country as they are shameless in trying to rip us off. Until now, the money I got from buxto is still stuck in alertpay because I refuse to pay that ridiculous charge. You stay in the States so it should be ok for you...

I do nothing. It should take a few months. I can't remember the number of days they gave in FAQ - 60? but those are all WORKING days so you have to add the holidays, etc. I did manually add up for my first payment and they are almost "punctual". So this time round for the second payment, I am gonna assume they would pay me on time. If this turns out otherwise, I would probably go "Oh hey, why haven't I got paid for buxto yet?" some time down the road and I would check again. I think you will receive an email notification when you are paid via alertpay so you don't need to keep checking.

60 working days at 5 days a week would be 12 "weeks" or 3 months. What a racket! I was thinking of just sticking with it, but if it takes me 6 months to make cash out (maybe little less, but for conversation sake) and another 6 months to get my money - it really isn't worth it to bother to do it for $10 a year. I'll pick up pennies in the parking lot, but I won't scrounge in the gutter for them - not when there are other ways of getting the same $10! Thanks for your input

Geez, 6 months? Mine... it didn't take that long for me the first. I can't tell what to expect this current second time though... seems quite long already... hmm...

good luck waiting lol . I cashed out august 3rd and have to wait about 6 months for them to pay me being a standard member . I read in their forum they have over 1 million members and they have members that cashout hundreds of dollars and even thousands so I guess that's why they take so long to pay.. They've been saying that they are speeding up the payment process and that they are makng their own payment processor for a long time but I hope they get back to at least 60 days for standard members..

it is RIDICULOUS ! I don't belive they are short of money when they paid hundreds of dollars everyday to upgraded but they also blame alertpay for their late payments saying that they have been having problems and alertpay is making it difficult for them ..I stopped complaining on their forum because I read that they are banning members who complain alot.. The only reason I'm still sticking with the site is because I know they eventually pay and I'm hoping that *someday they will have regular payment times back. I hope they really are working on their own payment processor , they have been announcing for such a long time and during that time swatcash already got their own processor ... Jeez.. good luck to everyone on buxto !! Happy mylotting ! xD

I am happy for you and will be even happier when/if you get paid. I have also heard many people complain it takes way too long to get paid from them. I personall, wouldn't work the site anymore till I got paid. What if you don't get paid and then you keep working the site, and as you said 6 months, and don't get paid for that work too. But that is just my opinion. All of the sites I work on pay me within 12 to 24 hours and I have been paid by all of the ones I am working on. I just sent you a persaonl message, my friend, showing you some more proof of payments for the ones I work on. I just got paid from ggmails.com, $5.00, that I earned in 4 weeks and got paid within 24 hours after I requested it. I never worked the site everyday since I had company from out of town or it would have taken me even less than the 4 weeks it took me. I also just got paid from infreemails.com, $2.00, which only took me 2 weeks to reach and tehy paid me within 12 hours after I requested it. Again, I sent you through the pm proof of payment for that one too. I wish you a lot of luck with gettting paid.

I dont know im a member of bux.to as well but someone recently posted a thread that said that it takes 6 mouths to receive a payout, i was really surprised to read that but i dont know for sure im still waiting to reach my first payout with them, but good luck.

Oh, it took me a few months to get it and I just today today got the $10.14. Yep, seems bux.to is not a quick payer. I just don't understand why so many stay with them. I mean, I know $10 is $10 and $10 I didn't have before, but still... I can spend that time I would on buxto here on MyLot and probably make at least half that if not all that in a month here! But, it was mentioned to just do it when everything else is done, so maybe I will. Just my luck that the FIRST one I FINALLY reach cash out mini on is a horendously SLOW payer!
