Hey, I have earned a small amount of money from your referral program, but not enough to meet the $50 minimum payout. I am just wondering why you have a minimum payout for Paypal? After all, I’m the one that gets charged by Paypal to receive payment.

I would really like to get my money but with the microscopic amount of traffic my site gets I don’t think I’ll be able to meet the $50 minimum any time soon, if at all… :-(

Thank you, - Evan Byrne

The reason is because, if the minimum was $5, we’d be flooded with payout requests. Such measures have to be implemented in order to maintain some sense of balance. Otherwise, we’d be making thousands and thousands of $5 payouts.

That makes sense, but I remember reading somewhere that money in my account expires after 1 year of receiving it. Is that true or is my information incorrect?

Yes but any funds accrued in that year will be cashed out to you I believe.

This is something I’ve been wondering about too. Does someone manually make payouts each month? Is there no way to automate it?

I’m not positive what system they use. I know that Paypal has a way to make many payments at once. I believe it involves uploading an XML file – but I’m not sure.

So, is it confirmed that funds pay out of my account after a year? I wouldn’t imagine they are just lost.

Yeah, after one year, if you have earnings totalling less than $50, you can cash those out.

It is only deposits that can expire, if unspent after 1 year.
