hello mylotters! what payment process would you prefer? paypal or check? me i personally prefer paypal, because with check, you would have to pay for some fees, and if there would be a problem with your address, it may not be sent to you, and is really risky maybe it wouldnt be sent to your house. so which do you prefer? paypal or check?

Hi there. Taking payment from mylot is one of the best things every mylotter like. To tell about preferred option, I prefer paypal although it created problems for everyone from my country India. Now they have rectified the problem and I am getting money to my account.

I most definitely prefer to accept payments via Paypal. Even though I don't mind the traditional paper check, I still like Paypal much better. I feel that Paypal is more secure.

yes i also prefer paypal as its very convenient like i can do the transfer to my bank account just from the comfort of my home and using internet then wait for few days before it reached my bank account, while in check you need to go to the bank and choose which one will accept the check as not all bank accepted it then still need to wait for another days and yet you also need to pay for fees. when it comes to check since its under your name i dont think other people can en-cash it as it as they need a valid id for that and bank usually ask 2 to 3 valid id to do that so its still safe though not sure if you can get it on time.

I prefer paypal, as checks can bounce and you have no way to get your money back and they already have your goods. It's all loss for you and none to them, if the the payer is not ethical. With paypal there is not such a problem.

What fees would you have to pay by using a check? If people are sending you money and they have their return address on the envelope, they would get it back if it could not be delivered to you. With Paypal, either the sender or receiver would have to pay a fee. Also, if Paypal doesn't like what you are doing, they will freeze your account. You Don't want to happen to you. I like Alertpay. They charge a fee on one end same as Paypal but you won't get your account frozen

Paypal, especially if you are residing in the Philippines. The postal people here in the Philippines cannot be trusted especially the employees based in Metro Manila. I had a bad experience with them. There are many thieves among their ranks. Imagine, i expect to receive my International ATM card from New York, when they received the envelope, the opened it not knowing it is impossible for them to use the card. It took me several months before I successfully recovered the card. I tracked the card and found it stacked in the Express Mail Service main office near Domestic Airport in Pasay, City with the enveloped already opened.

I prefer paypal because it is very quick. When one has to wait on a check it can take several weeks. Normally paypal rewards can be collected daily or weekly depending upon the schedule of the company paying you. I would much rather have my online earnings transferred to a paypal account than have to wait for snail mail!

Obviously paypal is my preferred option. It is fast, easy and very convenient. As you said it, checks can be delayed or lost. It takes time too.

I absolutely prefer paypal since more effective and flexible. As you said, send moneys via check today is not safe, peoples prefer transfer via bank account or ebanking. Perhaps wrong address is a main problem from sending moneys by check. Have a nice day
