Not only are we happy help you, but also we can use your feedback to make the site better for tomorrow's new member! A lot of the instructions throughout the site and answers in the FAQ are there because someone else pointed out that it wasn't clear before.

I did not know that I can only send, not receive or withdraw funds via Paypal in my country. (Namibia) I really like doing the reviews. Is there not another way that you can pay reviewers like me, whose countries do not support Paypal in all its functions?

Yes, and the FAQ list the alternatives. :tiphat:

Hi, I also have the same issue with Paypal where I am unable to receive payments through it. I would love to be able to receive information as well on this or directions on how to find it as I am new to the platform. Thank you.

The FAQ list the alternatives to PayPal.

I contacted Scott on Linkedin. He told me to remove my e-mail address from the Review page preferences. Then I can save up to a $100 and it can be sent with Western Union or Bitcoin.

I suggest you contact Scott and asked if it could be done that way for you.

Western Union is NOT one of the options.

No need to contact Scott for that. He just needs to do as you said.
