    I will not name any sites, but some sites allow flexible payouts whereby you choose the paymount threshold and if money goes to charity. Would be nice to get a similar (but better!) feature here.

      Also cheque or PayPal instead of just one or the other.

    It's obvious you're describing Squidoo.

    The HubPages payout system has already seen a lot of changes over the years, many of which have been geared towards getting more people more frequently payments. 

    I'd rather they work on getting rid of the low-quality content and getting our Google traffic back.  That would get everyone hitting payout a lot more.

    I for one would welcome some flexibility in payouts, or at least a lower payout threshold.

    Personally, I would not be interested in the charity option. Charities selected for such a scheme would inevitably be in the US. If I support a charity, I want it to be one in the UK that deals in areas of particular concern to me and operates on a fairly local level (more transparency and without the bloated administration and high wages that tend to be found in charities operating on national/international levels).

    However, I do think it would be useful to set a lower threshold, but also let people store up money for as long as they want before requesting a payout. Even the ghastly Helium, which otherwise exploits its authors dreadfully, is able to offer this, or at least did when I tried writing there a long time ago.

      Well said!  I am based in the UK but I would still like the option there for our friends across the pond, as at least some American charities will gain more funds. Who knows, they maybe could set up one big UK charity fund that people from the UK who have added to the pot vote where it goes?

    This is a suggestion that has already been made several times before. 

    The primary discussion and response is here:

    along with the suggestion of consolidating payment across multiple accounts.

    There was a specific discussion just on the lower payout threshold here: http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/100417

    In short, after some investigation on my part, the $50 threshold is there because that's the optimal payout to balance the associated fees and processing on our end.

    And this forum suggested alternatives to Paypal: http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/100636

    After investigation, it is not feasible for us to pay out any other way.

    For further comment, please use on of those forums as I am closing this one.
