I submitted my tax information to Gather a few months ago, and so did my husband. I e-mailed them that it was on its way, and I faxed the actually papers in, and they are not recognizing it. I tried to cash out tonight for $100, and they claim that I am at my limit. AARRGGHH!!! So I wrote to member support to see what's up, and should hear from them probably tomorrow, or this weekend. Has this ever happened to anyone else?

Nope, I don't invest that much time anymore with online earnings. I've started my own business and it's really picking up so I never have the time. I hope you are able to get your money! Good luck!

I use to sell on ebay and got so fed up with it after they changed the rating system. A seller couldn't leave negative feedback even if a "buyer" didn't pay WTF is that? Dummies!

no, I haven't. They already have my w-9. I was on the cash option for a long time. I didn't think they even offered that anymore. I've been getting Target gift cards lately because I'm wanting to purchase a pack and play for my new granddaughter that will be here in less than a month. It has the sling for when they are little bitty as well as a built in changing table!

I would definitely be very frustrated if I were you. Hoping that the situation would be better and you can claim your earnings in due time. I have heard lots of good things about gather and the fact that this happens is a real bummer. I really am hoping that you will be paid..

I had dropped out of Gather. I am impressed that you have made $600 this year. I am tempted to go back, but did not earn that well on there. Have the upgrades continued? How have you felt about them? I would be frustrated just as you are, if you are really needing that $100.

danishcanadian, As you know I am also on gather, needing to go back there and work some bit harder, but I wanted to know if you ever got your W-9 form fixed up?

Wow!! I don't blame you for being a little frustrated. I have never really done anything with Gather, so I am not even sure on how you can earn money there. All I can say, is I hope things will improve for you, and all of this get worked out soon. Wishing you the Best.
