Should I Wait?

We all know that PTC sites are a big boon today, and I'm a member of many of them. I have been paid by a few (you can see my blog by going to my profile), but there are others that I don't even bother clicking on anymore because they seem to be a waste of time. One of my absolute favorites is IsabelMarco and I know that one is on the top of the list for a lot of you. I've already been paid once and I've reached payout again, but I don't know whether to take it now or let it build up. If I wait, it will obviously be a larger payment, but it will also take longer to get that payment. If I ask for it now it will still be a little while before I get it, but I will also be building up for another payment while waiting on this one. What to do, what to do? How do you handle payouts with your PTC sites? Do you elect to cash out as soon as you reach it? I always do for the first payment, but sometimes wait for the second one, hence my current situation.

I cash out as soon as I can. I haven't had that many cash outs to be honest, but am always extraordinarily pleased to get one. It's a lot of time invested. Anyways, I cash out fast due to my lack of trust in the system. They could go under at any time is what I'm thinking. I haven't made cash out with Isabel yet due to lack of time, but am still plugging away. I hope you listened to her new Isabel rap song a member made - it's interesting to say the least, or is it to say the most?

IsabelMarco is one of them that adds new links several times a day, so I make sure that one gets checked every day, if not several. This will be my second payout.

Hi there and happy Sunday! What a terrible dilemma But I recognise your problem as I am on the same site. When my payout arrives I request the next one when it reaches a 'round' sum. But I have a different strategy on every site. The ones that take ages to pay I request immediately I receive one that was pending. That's not the case on Neobux. There is another story. As I know it's instant, when I reach payout I carry on. i cashed out at 2, 3, 5 and now it will be 10 (in 50 cesnts from now). The next one could be at 6 but I will let it get to 10 again - it's even quicker that way. (I am not upgraded and have no bought or rented referrals there but it's earning just the same vey quickly thanks to the refs I got through my blog). If you ever get to the stage where you have too many cash-outs to handle and need a secretary count me in

My dear, if I ever get to that point I will certainly be able to afford you, so I shall be in touch! I love NeoBux too and yes, they pay the minute you hit the button! But unfortunately I don't have but one or two referrals there so payout is taking longer for me. I did get one, though, and almost at the second payout.

I have also reached payout on IsabelMarco but have decided to let it build. From what I have found out, they are a reputable site and pay their members so have opted to wait till it gets to at least $50 before requesting my first payout. I have two of my own referrals plus 15 I had bought so shouldn't be long.. Some sites I would elect to cash out as soon as I reach it which is what I'd do with sites like neobux if its instant but also if I have not been convinced completely that they'll pay:)

I have a few dollars more than the payout now so I think I will probably go ahead and request it this evening, or I might wait until I reach a certain dollar amount. Decisions, decisions!

I know... decisions! decisions! The problem is that they take quite a while to pay and then when you have requested the payment, you cannot request for another one till the first arrives which is why I wait; I do not mind waiting as long as it comes in the end, a little risk..:) I also waited to reach $50 on bux.to before requesting payment in May and I know I will be waiting a while but I am already up to $100 now so by the time first payment arrives, should be requesting second which should be about $100:-D But like a previous poster said, when it's in the paypal, alertpay account, it's yours..so right decision.

well it depends on you, if you dont really need the money for anything right now then i would just let it build up. but if you do need it go ahead and use it.

Well see, there's the problem. I DO need the money very much, but even if I request it now it will probably be a couple of weeks before I see it anyway.

I like to let mine build up for a larger lump sum payment. I do that with mylot as well. I let it go through for the first time just to make sure they pay and when i find out that they really do...I try to let it build up all the while watching for rumors that they are going to fold.

I don't let mine build in myLot. If I wanted to just save it up I would do that in PayPal. There was a day when I would let all of my 'found' money (online earnings and sales, etc) build up in PayPal and that was my money to do something special, but right now every penny is needed just to survive one day to the next.

That's the point, I do need it, but it will still be a couple of weeks before I get it even if I request it right now. So if I have to wait anyway, should I wait until it gets larger?

well, i always prefer to have the money in my account as i feel safer that way and i know that i can transfer it to my bank account anytime i want when i need it... if the money is still sitting in the site, i just afraid if the site closed down and they don't pay the members anymore... so i always request my money whenever i reach the minimum payout just to be safe... but again, it is a personal decision... take care and have a nice day...

I absolutely agree, but it takes so long to get payout on these sites anyway, I almost want to wait and let it build up for a bigger amount. I already got paid once, so I will probably wait until I get a round number and go ahead and request it.

Always take the money straight away - if you like the site use this money to buy referrals. - my twopence worth

My absolute fave is adpaid.com. I've met their low payout of $3.00 7 times already and cashed out each time, each was over $4.00 when I cashed out thou. Clixsense is the only site that I will let my earnings build up on only cause they charge a fee to have the check mailed to me. I'd rather they pay me thru paypal but they don't.

I haven't reached payout on very many sites yet, but if it pays with paypal, I request it immediately and leave it in paypal til the end of the month. I've signed up for paypal's money market fund, and they pay better interest than anywhere else I know of.
