what do you do when you get a new payment?

November 9, 2010 10:42pm CST
After requesting a payment from a website what do you do when you open your paypal or other similar site and see your new payment? I am saving up my online income for a new phone and music. Do you go spending online as soon as the payment has cleared or do you save like me?

When I get a payment I transfer it to my bank account then move it to my savings account. I rarely, rarely spend anything I make online. I have saved a few thousand this year and it's nice to know that it's there in case I need it for an emergency. When I think of spending it on clothing, jewelry, music or something else then think of all the things that could go wrong, I'm glad I've saved it. I hope you also have a "rainy day" fund.

I just got a payment, and I'm putting it ttoward a DVD set I bought at Wal-Mart because I bought it but I didn't have any extra "fun money" but I knew I was getting paid soon so I'm working off that money by earning it online.

I use payments to pay my websites server bills. I save some of those money to buy gifts for my friends and relatives. I also invest small amounts in stocks. Happy Mylotting!!!

When I started earning online I wanted to earn enough to pay for my monthly internet bill and now I earn far more than that.

I don't usually check, because I use Paypal for all these things and they send me an email as soon as I get a payment anyway. I usually don't also spend the money at once, I prefer to save it, so there is really no need to.

Thanks for your response. I like to look at my account when I get a payment because most of my earnings are converted from dollars into pounds once they have entered my Paypal account.

After seeing payment in my paypal, I usually put it into my bank account and save it :) Then I will save up for a gift for myself or pay some bills.

I usually keep it in my paypal as it takes a few days to transfer to your bank account

First, I will be so happy that I hold my $$$ in the paypal for a week before spending it. If I need some entertainment, I will go for a movie or for KFC. If not I just leave it there until more $$$ to come. Its hard earned money, ya know?

Absolutely, the more time you put in the more money you should earn. Good luck.

For the last 2 months I got around $240. I withdrew it and spent it on just some small stuffs and a few $ on spent going to an amusement park. But this time I am reinvesting it back so can accumulate more before Christmas . I have lots of things to buy on Christmas, mostly for gifts!

If you can find things that work well it can be a great way of earning some extra cash.

I will leave it in my paypal for awhile until I have it built up some then I will transfer it to my bank account. I have tried to save it up, but I am always needing it for something, so I end up using it. If I would just leave it it ny paypal, I would never use it. It is so hard to save money these days, as things cost so much more than they used to, so therefore it take a lot more money to buy anything. I am still going to try to save it though if I can. Good luck to you and happy mylotting.

Thanks for the response. I am doing the same at the moment, How much do you like to save before you transfer?. I have around £35.60 at the moment in my paypal account but I am waiting on a couple of payments which will bring it up towards £100.
