$27.03, I got a check from INBOXDOLLARS!

I'm so glad that I'm a gold member at Inboxdollars. I cashed approximately 14 days ago. I love the fact that they automatically make you a gold member after you've cashed out with them. I think that was definitely the right move. Now as a add perk for gold members, I think they should waive the $3.00 fee they take to send you your check. That's my personal assessment though. What do you think, do you think it's fair that they give you a $5 sign-up bonus and then take $3 back just to send you the check that you so rightfully deserve? I think they should do like wordlinx did and go the PAYPAL route, and charge a much lesser fee. Are you a member of INBOXDOLLARS? Are you a member of their sister site SENDEARNINGS? What do you think regarding the check fee? Do you think they should go with Paypal, and charge a much lesser fee, like maybe $0.50?

I love that site too. They always pay. I do hate the fee and wish it would be lowered.

Yeah if they used Paypal, I think paypal would only charge them 3% which is much better than 10%. They could simply pass their paypal fees on to us.

I am a member of inbox dollars, and like you have become a gold member after my first cashout. I do not have enough yet for a second cashout so I wonder myself what does being a gold member mean? Your proposal is a sound one. Should we not petition together with the other members to Inboxdollars to waive this $3 fee when cashing out? They should definitely use Paypal because a check takes some time, while Paypal is instant unless processing takes the same time. I am also a member of Sendearnings but I hardly get emails from them. I am only active on Inboxdollars.

hi involved ~ Thanks for your reply as a gold member the primary benefit is you won't have to wait 2 months for your check. It will get to you in about 2 weeks instead. My second one for $27.03 came in about 10 days. Regarding Sendearnings, have you completed the surveys there. I usually get about the same amount of emails from them as I get from InboxDollars. Hope it helps. I don't think a petition will help in today's economy, as InboxDollars can always bring up the excuse of cost of paper, etc.. Plus a check is a way for them to safe guard their monies. Because the money sent or processed has an expiration date, but if they sent it via paypal, it wouldn't have an expiration date. You'd be surprised at how many people don't cash the checks they receive in the mail.

does anyone know if there's a certain reason why sites like this DON'T use paypal?

I am a member, it does really stink that they charge the check fee. It takes a long time to make that $3. I also do sendearnings. I wish they would go with paypal.

you, me, and the many others as well. Maybe one day, they'll cater to their members.

I am a member of inboxdollars too, and I haven't cashed out yet, but I sure should as I have over $45 in here. I was going to one day, but they were going to charge me a $3 for the cehck and I decided not to at the time and let it buile up some. I probably will ask for it before to long though. I wish they would give us options as to how we want the money whehter it be by paypal or check, not just say they do chck and that is it. That is why I hesitated getting it, but I will have to eventually as I can use the money. Congrats on getting paid and happy mylotting.

I really wanted to join this site because it looks so good and it has lots of earning opportunities. But when I read that it pays members through check, I changed my mind. Why can't they pay people through paypal? Every respectable GPT site should pay through paypal. It's really inconvenient for international members to wait for checks.
