    I would love to see how much I earn without Hubpages ad program. I am happy with my Hubpages ad program earnings. However I would rather prefer to earn money via adsense because my country does not allow me to withdraw money via Paypal. Now if I deactivate from Hubpages ad program, can I activate the Hubpages ad program if I wish to? What will happen to my previous Hp ad program earnings? Please kindly help. Thank you.

      If you can't accept Paypal payments, why did you join the HP Ads program?  It is the only way you can be paid.

      I suggest you deactivate the HP ads program immediately, and don't reactivate it until you've found a solution to accepting Paypal payments.  You can't really say you are happy with your HPAds earnings, because you're not earning anything if you can never collect the money!

    Yes, you can go back and forth between programs; just not excessively so. Do consider timing; if near $50 threshhold, maybe wait a little longer? Also, can you circumvent your country's restrictions by getting a paypal debit card?

      PD India doesn't allow Paypal debit cards either. We can't even use the funds from our paypal account directly. We first have to withdraw it to our bank account (electronic transfer or a cheque from paypal). So, if a person can't withdraw itself I highly doubt the debit card option.

    Thanks for replying. I do get payment via Paypal and I am able to spend money only. In my country there is no way to withdraw the money to my account. Sadly Paypal do not offer their debit card to Qatar.

    At the end of this month my accumulated earnings would be near 100 dollar. So if I deactivate am I going to receive the payment at the end of April or not?

      I am in the same boat with you. I have made some earnings through HP but here in Kenya I can't be able to withdraw my money. I don't want to think about it. We urgently need a solution to this problem. If you get some ideas how we can get to enjoy our money apart from online spending, let me know.

        If you can't collect the money, what's the point of earning it? 

        It makes absolutely no sense to run an Ad program which you cannot earn money from.  Switch it off.

          Marisa, I don't think you fully understand.

          They can SPEND the money (on any website that takes paypal, such as eBay) they just can't WITHDRAW the actual cash.

            Thanks WryLilt for trying to make Marisa Wright understand what is happening. We earn, we can spend the money online, BUT we can not withdraw hard cash like the rest of you. I wish she could get the point here.

              I get that you can spend it - tnrvstar explained that. However, if you could find enough ways to spend it, you wouldn't be complaining - so it's clear, not being able to withdraw the funds is a problem.  If I were in that situation, I would just ignore the HP Ads program and base my Hubs around Adsense.

          @Marisa Wright, The reason why We are using Ad program because We can buy products or service from website which accept Paypal payment method.

          There is a way how we can turn our Paypal money into cash. I have a friend in UK whom I am going to send my paypal earnings to his Paypal account. He will withdraw the money and again send it to me via Western Union money transfer. The amount which I would get might decrease due to several transaction. Moreover Western union money transfer fee is also very high. Still something is better than nothing.

            Why don't you ask your friend to send it directly through a bank?

              @lobobrandon, is it possible for that friend of his to send it to a bank, would it be less costly if sent through the bank? I am asking this because I am also in the same kind of situation.

                Yes it would surely be better than Western Union I guess. But, it does depend on country to country and their bank rates - you'll need to ask your friend to find out though.

        For HP hubbers engaged in the Ad Program but having difficulty encashing pay pal payments in dollars to hard cash because of restriction, like India, Quatar, Kenya, etc. let me help you by transferring your pay pal earnings in an amount no less than US$173.00 to my pay pal account.  The amount of US$173.00 or higher is a threshold for me to avoid payment of withdrawal charge when sending you the amount.  From the $173.00 you've transferred, $164. 35 will be for you and the difference of $8.65 representing 5% incentive pay will be for me.  Contact me if interested.

            The offer is addressed to non-doubting hubbers.  For non-problematic, good luck and more power.
