PayPal has been holding my money since March! It's more than 21 days and they haven't released it. I keep having this problem. Can hubpages look into other sites like Skrill and Payoneer? They are nice alternatives.
It might be a good idea to have an alternative - if only because PayPal doesn't operate in some countries.
Has PayPal offered you an explanation for the delay?
None at all! I received an email confirming payment from Arena on April 28th but I am yet to receive the money in my PayPal account till date. I can't sue for $50 but I'm really considering it! Lol
In the initial stages we used to receive payment direct from Google AdSense and Amazon. I removed all my articles (except one) after this mode was replaced by the requirement to utilize PayPal. PayPal does not operate in my country.
That's an understanding, and to be noted, as it equally apply to others. Writers these days at hubpages need an option payment platform to enable them get their payment, where paypal is a challenge.
My wife has had problems with delays. In her case, the money was registered as having been received by PayPal but would not be credited to her account for three weeks (?). She clicked on a link and declared that she had provided the service concerned - the money was then released quicker.
As this doesn't seem to be the same as your situation, I suppose you'll have to email PayPal direct.
Hmm. . . My money has been held for three weeks too. I'll give them a couple of days more.
Do you have any idea on why is PayPal is behaving this way?
It's one whole month now and a couple of weeks and I am yet to receive payment from PayPal. No reasons at all from PayPal on why they have seized my money. It's frustrating! But I blame Hubpages. Every other online platform is using Payoneer now. Clickworker and Appen amongst others. Why has Hubpages refused to let PayPal go?
Paypal, is still a problem with many writers from the third world countries. That's why alternate to Paypal, like Payoneer is great for those from the underdeveloping countries.
Paypal have been getting "political" as well - suspending the accounts of people or journalists for saying the wrong things. It really highlights the need to diversify the options here.
Is it that because of the American covid-19 scenario? Just curious.
COVID, January 6th, the Ukraine War. Every major event is now an excuse to silence people who are critical of the mainstream narrative, even if that narrative is shown to be wrong (in part) months later. Authoritarianism is on the rise, sadly. The weird thing is, it's coming from the so-called "liberals." The entire political spectrum has shifted so far to the right that there's no-one left to fight for free speech and actual liberal values anymore. So what's going to be the result of all that? I've never been more pessimistic about where society is going.
Sad indeed. Then Hubpages should provide an option for all writers of other payment platform along side Paypal. Those payment platform or system should have been acceptable in nearly most countries of the world, where or near where a writer is residing. I hope hubpages will look into this serious challenge.
Can you confirm the money actually was received by Paypal? You need to send a query to them with the exact date, amount, and sender and keep escalating it until you get a reply about whether they have it and the status of it.
Whether the money is actually collected by paypal or not is not the challenge here. adding various payment options is.
PayPal sent an email confirming receipt of the money. Then they concluded by saying it might take a while for the money to reflect in my PayPal account.
But didn't they tell you why?
No they did not.
Hi, I hope you've been able to get your money.
PayPal can be a little pain most times. I remember them closing my account and seizing the money received from a site I used to write on, channels.cc (now defunct).
I wish Hubpages would listen and roll out alternatives.
IMHO, alternatives to Paypal are best. For example, bank wireing. As not all countries are Paypal complaint, alternative choses are the best. And best of all give each person a choice to ease Paypal worries and pains. This makes profound sense. Hubpages, hear it loud and clear!
We currently do not plan to add another form of payment besides PayPal.
Matt, I don't think that new generations of writers specific from the developing or third world countries will like that. But consider that other online content writing sites has one or more payment platform beside Paypal. For example, Google has AdSense, bank wireing, check payments, and yes, money transfer. Critically, all these payment systems make sense to serve the India Sub-Continent, Africa, Asia, America, and Europe.
yes i got it after three months. it seems Hubpages get some kind of benefit from them because i really dont understand why they wont add an alternative. every other crowd-sourcing site uses two or more payment methods.
HubPages isn't a crowd-sourcing site. And every other paying platform I've been on uses only one payment method... whether that be Squidoo, Adsense, Medium, or Vocal. The most used seem to be PayPal, Stripe, or direct bank transfer.
Paypal is suspending the accounts of more independent journalists. Jackson Hinkle, Wyatt Reed, Alan McLeod, Mintpress News, etc. A worrying escalation in the war against free speech. Source: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BoJZaGySugE

Payoneer as a payment option on HubpagesCan we ask Hubpages to add Payoneer as another form of payment here on Hubpages, in addition to PayPal. Or is it already there that I am not aware of.

I have recently decided to try the hubpages ad program because of some issues related to impression sharing also i have hard that it earns more. The problem is that I live in Pakistan and Paypal discriminates us very unjustly from using its services so I can't make a Papal account and if I try to...

Paypal is becoming problematic these days. I would be happy if HubPages would consider offering alternative payment methods other than paypal also. I am sure that there are many like me who would be happy if we get to choose from other payment modes also.

How do you get your earnings transferred to Paypal?How do you get your money transferred into your PayPal account? My PayPal account is configured, but it doesn't look like any of my earnings have been transferred to it.
