I have been back clicking ads after almost 2 years of being inactive and concentrating on mylot. And when I have to register with some sites, they ask both Paypal and AlertPay accounts. Why do they need both payment system when they only have to pay us with just one. I am totally confused. And besides, I have only Paypal and no AlertPay. How can I join those sites without AlertPay?

Sweetie, when they ask for alertpay as well, fill in your paypal details. They normally accept that. TATA.

If they ask you for both, I suggest you create an alertpay account. Its free and easy to do. Some sites have funds at both "virtual Banks" because they have problems with one of them and need another one to pay and recieve.I have alertpay but almost never use it. And when a site only pay through Alertpay, I buy referrals with that money at sites where I can cash out with paypal (like Neobux, for instance). I dont get much more money (I dont have a good eperience with renting referrals) but at least I can have my money back. Take care, friend!

Hi neildc,does they really need both,come on as you have already mentioned that you were a member previously and inactive for the last two years or so....I just don't understand a senior body like you are asking for direction,now I am really scared what do we will do if my senior colleague finds difficult to sustain himself,Its a very clear to all of us the junior that something is very mysterious which hold for us. Still on the other hand I will wish that all the senior mylotters will show some solution to all of us and you get your problem sorted out.

PP or Ap ? just need one , just need a email address. What you need do is fill one account, and other is just a email address. and you can cashout via your only account(PP,Ap,LR or PF)

most sites give you more than one option to use to get payout.Also it could be that your paypal account is not yet verified it means you need to link your paypal account to your bank.

i am sure my paypal is already verified and i am also sure that they are asking for both, not an option.

Why don't you just open an Alertpay account. It's free.

i really forgot about alertpay. i thought i will never use it with other sites after registering two years ago, and i just registered. after that, i forgot about it and never used it even once to any of the paying sites. i have just recovered it today.

Hey neildc, well some sites have both just because Paypal is easier, but not available in every country. So basically Alertpay is a second choice for them. As Paypal is only available to people living in certain countries, whereas Alertpay is available to a lot of people in a lot of countries. Hope this answered your question. Have a great day!

but what if the paypal is not available in their country, they also cannot register if they only have alertpay?

Hi Neil I have never come across those Sites it was always options, I will not entertain AlertPay I have been with Paypal 6 years now and I will stick to that I just do not trust AlertPay and you do not have the option on there like you do Paypal, so I will not join any Sites which would force me to sign up of AlertPay

i was just being curious with some sites like gagabux that i tried to register there. but then the problem occurs.
@derek_a (10902)

I have found that some sites are just giving the choice to use Alertpay or Paypal and I do not have to use both. Then there are some sites that only use say Alertpay and not Paypal. I registered with Alertpay about a year ago, and whilst there are not many sites that use it, I have found it quite useful. _Derek

gagabux is one site that do not allow you to register when you do not have both payment system.

I’ve signed up with sites that initially require both but have given me the choice at payout time. I have both accounts but I prefer PayPal because I am familiar with it and Alert Pay seems to have higher fees although I may be wrong.

when i register with alertpay two years ago, i can't remember using it even once in any sites. and that is what i also heard, alertpay have higher fees.

I know of one site that asks for that, and I've not yet been paid from them. I wondered too why they would need both email addresses for both processors. I would just enter in your email for PP for both PP AND AP... it's not like it's going to matter.

Actually the purpose of the fund transfer websites, Paypal or Alertpay is well, to have the means to transfer your funds from the money-making websites and be able to withdraw them to your bank account of card. They may require either or both in case technical problems may occur in either one of them, then at least there is still a website to resort to for fund transfers. I myself had join sites where I was required to register with Paypal and Alertpay but they only used my Paypal account to transfer funds. I had no complaints though because I was paid regularly.

I noticed this with one the other day as well, its not good though if we don't want to be payed via alertpay, which I do not want to happen. I had to make an alertpay account just to join since you had to put an alertpay account as well as Paypal, to me that isn't right.

i am really confused why it should be two payment systems when if we are to be paid, they will only send the payment to only one system. unless they will double our payment by sending the same amount to both sites.

maybe its a security thing, to make sure you are who you are. i haven't even heard of alertpay. are these other sites that are not a scam that you really get paid? can you tell me what they are?

alertpay is simply another payment system like paypal and moneybookers.

Hi there Neil. I have noticed as well this increase in sites asking for both paypal and alertpay accounts as if they are wanting to test that you are an online long user and not trying to cheat - maybe cheaters would take longer in creating accounts for more then one payment type of account - that's what i figures as a sort of explication anyway. Well you could try using the same email address for both of them, that way you could confirm both of them from the same address, right ? Take care !

you have a point there elitess. well, i tried to recover my alertpay account cause i have it two years ago but never used it even once, so i forgot about it. the funny thing there is, i forgot about alertpay that i have an account and i found out just now that i have the same email address i use with paypal.

hi neil I would think that you can join those sites with one of the two, I really do not think they have to make you use both paypal and Alertpay. So just join them with the one Paypal account. try it and Iam sure that they will accept you.
