Hello. I checked under earnings section and it says that paypal is not accepted in my country. But I am in the US! Mylot also writes that I need to sign up for an egold account. I checked out egold and I do not like their setup. So what's up with that?

I noticed that on your profile page it says "unspecified" where your location typically would go. I imagine that if you update this section, then PayPal will become a payment option for you.

That's correct. If you don't state a country, then mylot can't figure out what payment system to use.

You are so right! I completely did not add my information! I was suspicious when I first signed up adn so wasn't wanting to tell all of my business! But it works now!

If you're in the United States then you should be able to use Paypal.

If you're in the U.S. and you have a bank account here, then there's no problem. You can sign up for Paypal and you can be paid my myLot thru there. In my case, I'm a Filipino working here in the U.S. I have a social security number and I have a bank account (where my salary is being entered each month). Thus, I was able to sign up for Paypal (although you can also sign up without a bank account I guess -- but still doesn't apply to your case) and my earnings here went through there. A lot of members here are using e-gold and it seems like they're not having problems with it. But then, you mentioned you don't like e-gold's set-up. I read from somewhere here before that myLot can issue a check. Message myLot about it. I hope you'd figure this out in the end. Happy myLotting!
