Okay I want to earn money online, but I also want to make sure I am doing it legitimately as well as keeping my identity safe. And for all you Ehowers out there obviously the WCP requires our personal info...well this makes me a little nervous. I checked with the BBB and they have been in business since 1999, but just recently registered for accretidation with the BBB since last March. There have been two complaints and each one had to do with contracts... Now I know it is good that they are registered with the BBB and only 2 complaints in 36 months doesn't seem bad. But what makes me nervous is since they have not been registered for so long is this an accurate account of their confidentiality. DO you guys feel safe giving them your SSN? Have any problems with them? Can you still get paid via paypal (like other sites) without siging up with the WCP? I emailed them with these questions and am eagerly awaiting their answer before i decide to go further. But I still wanted to check with you guys who are members of Ehow. Thanks

I took a chance on them on the recommendation of a friend. I wrote a few articles and one day out the blue, I got a notice from paypal that I had received monies and sure enough it was from ehow. It was a modest 13.50, but it was nice to get that surprise. I know they only pay after the month closes, and I have made payout this month again, so I'll be looking for that notification again soon. I haven't had any problems and am happy with the site. Good luck!

So you did enter your personal info (ssn) into the site? Or can you still get paid through paypal by not entering into their WCP program requiring your SSN?

I am a member there, but I have not made pay out yet, so I am not sure. I'm sorry. I do know a couple of people who have been on there for a while, and they seem to have nothing but good things to say about the site.
