We all like to get paid as quickly as possible but it isn't always the case. On some sites I belong to I wait a month but because I know that is standard for them I don't mind. One ptc site I used to belong to made us wait 6-8 weeks which I though was too long but having said that they always paid up in the end.

How long do you think we should have to wait and does it put you off if payment takes too long?

It's not really reasonable to wait such long time for 6-8 weeks, but we seem have no choice but just wait as a user. Are you referring to Ayuwage?
Anyway, I still able to tolerance with it since it's paying and sent me an notification email on the pay date while I have lost patient in between. haha!

Yes I am, and the worst thing about it was you could message their support and never get any response. Apparently I read somewhere that they were short staffed when it came to paying out.

Picoworkers required you @tusziget to send an PIN via snail mail? Microworker pays faster via sending the withdrawal PIN via email or hanphone, which pays every Thursday and Sunday.
The fast payment done by survey app/site : Mobrog (30 minutes), Streetbees : 24 hours.
GPT: 24- 72 hours.
Forums: BMF, Forum Coins (24 -72 hours)

Above is my experience. You may share yours.

If a site has a set payout schedule, say once a month, then I expect to get paid within 24 hours on that day. If a site on the other hand allows custom payouts at anytime, I think a 48-72h is acceptable.

Also I am okay with the first payment taking a bit longer as they verify your account, such as 30 days, but once you are verified I do not believe a site should hold your payouts and if they do, then I am moving onto greener pastures.

I.like sites that pays as fast as possible
it will motivate people to work harder than a long paying one. I think this why people will love BMF which pays within some hours. mine is pay within days.

Agree, the fastest the best. We are so excited to see our effort turn into harvest or fruits when the site pays us. It is advisable to read the FAQ of the site in order to know the normal lead time taken the site to pay, so if it takes longer, then we should contact the support to solve the issue.

When I first started earning online 2008 I was a member of many GPT sites that always made you wait a month before payment, thank goodness that now days many sites have instant payments, or payments within a week.

I dont like to wait for longer than a week or two. A couple times recently at a few different sites, Ive cashed out on thursdays, and had to wait the whole weekend because they didnt have the money in their paypal till the next week. That starts to make me nervous about the site

I always cash out as soon as I can, too many times being burned waiting for a larger payment.

1 to 3 business days is fine although this depends with the site rules.At most it should be 7 days. Some sites like Microworkers have gone too far and they require one to wait for upto 2 months before your payment is processed.

I've been waiting 5 days for an Amazon Gift card from Grabpoints which is quite unusual. The status is still pending but I'll give it a few more days unless @earnthatbuck thinks I should contact support.

Edit: I just had the email to say I have it :)






Thank you for being a valued GrabPoints member. We appreciate your support.

I've waited 2 months for a $5 payment. That is very unexceptable. I think that codes or paypal should be with in 48 hours. Mail 1 to 2 weeks at the most.
Have also waited upto 5 months for $9.As long as a site is legit and paying then we shouldntbe worried but rather continue working as we wait for the cash. Although such sites that stay for upto 2 months to pay are very rare.

I prefer to cash out as soon as possible too. I like being able to build up a balance a little more before requesting a reward but had a couple instances where I was locked out or given some other absurd excuse as to why my payment is taking so long. I think it's just a good practice to keep your money moving and constantly be cashing out as soon as the minimum threshold is reached.

KeepRewarding does take a bit longer, without going to look, I believe its 10 working days, saturday and sunday dont count. If after that you dont get it, send the Admin - Chris a note. I read today on FB hes running behind, but he ALWAYS pays

Chris is awesome. hehe. It's 7 working days now. But I found an app where you need to wait 2-3 weeks, I just hope that I have some patience, when I'm waiting on a payment from that app.
