Ive searched the forums, answers and questions but see none for this problem. I'm closing my account at Hubpages very soon and have not earned the minimum $50 threshhold to receive my payout, and I'm not going to. How do I get my final payout?
You don't... If you don't reach the $50, you don't get paid. I recently closed my acct at something like $38. That money is gone... in fact it was really never there. It doesn't become real, in a sense, until you hit that 50 dollar mark.
Instead of closing your account, why don´t you write some articles that would be helpful to people in the Chicago suburbs? You could write "The fastest way to reach the Field Museum from ...." (I do not know which suburb you live in), "The best restaurant in ....", "The best Chinese restaurant in ...", "Where to go shopping for the best buys in Chicago", etc, and come up with at least 40 or 50 articles that would get good traffic from people that live in your area.
You will be making hundreds in no time.
Or close the account. If you do not feel like writing things that will help people looking for information, you will not get any traffic and will not be paid for your work.
They paid me on my old account when I had less then $50 but that is because I kicked up a fuss and made them.
My advice is to not close down the account and do as DrMark1961 says.
You only get paid when you reached $50. I have been inactive for quite a number of years. It took 3 years before I got $50. Lol
The answer to your question lies in the Terms Of Service, which I'm even more convinced than ever that I am the only user of the site who's ever read the damn thing.
You close your account with less than $50, you forfeit the money.
lol. I think that's why we are all so dependent on you. I'm surprised HPs hasn't issued you your own secret service protection.
Did you ever see the photo of me with the staff from when I met them? I'm so short I could just duck behind Paul Edmondson and boom...invisible!

I have reached the threshold amount for the first time plus a few dollars. My PayPal is linked but no money yet. Shall I assume this takes HubPages a few days? Thanks!

I have to share my small success story with everyone. It’s not huge compared to what other hubbers make here, but hey I have reached my second payout in just 4 months this time. It is less than 1/3rd of the time...

Just wondering how people are doing. My other account gets a payout every 2-3 months.

I have just received my first HP payout on PayPal late last month (USD$60-something)! It was a long journey since I was not very active and I wrote on and off (I only have 31/32 hubs at the moment). To all the hubbers...
