I have (6.84) in Alert pay and 0.26 Paypal. But when I choose Alertpay to purchase, it will say that I don't have enough balance?! But the word I am trying to buy is only 0.27! Can someone help me out? Do you experience this too?

That amount in brackets is a negative figure. You have minus 6.84 in your Kooday Alertpay balance.

A negative?? So that's why I can not use it to purchase! But how did I get a negative on alertpay when I never really used it to purchase anything?

When Kooday moved from Paypal to Alertpay, it made all Kooday AlertPay balances start as a negative figure equivalent to the Paypal amount you invested. This was apparantly to prevent fraud. So, if you invested $10 from your Paypal account into Kooday, then you'd have a minus $9 figure in your Kooday AlertPay balance ($10 less the $1 admin fee). From there, your minus figure changes depending on the keywords someone buys off you and whether they use their AlertPay or Paypal Kooday balance to buy it off you. Some people have enough money in their Kooday AlertPay balance to buy keywords.

If you want to bring the minus figure back up to zero and beyond, you can: - wait and hope members will use their Kooday AlertPay balances to buy your keywords - buy keywords with your Kooday Paypal balance and hope someone will buy it back using their AlertPay balance (I know you don't have much in your Paypal K balance, so buy a couple of 10 cent ones). - wait for Kooday's weekly profit sharing (they're currently splitting it b/w AlertPay and Paypal) - open an AlertPay account and transfer funds to your Kooday Alertpay balance - request your Paypal refund from Kooday, wait to receive it, open an AlertPay account, then transfer the Paypal refund to your AlertPay account. (not sure direct transfers from Paypal to AlertPay is possible as I don't have an AlertPay account myself. You might have to do it with a credit card or bank transfer. Not sure).
