    Default $40 for a paper check fee?

    I just got charged $40 for a check that was only $179 to begin with, leaving it $139
    When I emailed asking about my cashout options, someone should of warned me about this...and $40 REALLY? In 10 years of this, I've never paid more than $20 and most are $10 or free....this is crazy, do you really think it's appropriate to charge $40 to small time affiliates like this? Makes us not want to promote your brands at that price.

    I gotta admit I've seen cutting checks being costed $15-40 to the advertiser. Which is pretty much the cost of how much it costs programs to cut that check.

    Rak, you maybe right, but in almost 10 years, I have yet to pay close to that amount for a paper check, many times the affiliate company pays the fees or gets a processor that is reasonable.

    Can you imagine being a small time affiliate, barely earning enough money to get by and getting 25% of your check taken out without knowing ahead of time?

    Or a minimum $100 till payout then $40 to cut the check, which arrives in USD, then your banks charges your $10-20 to convert it to AUD (my currency) .. and then you're left with $40-$50!!

    Rak, I know exactly what you mean, I lived in Australia for 8 years, I paid plenty of fees to cash USD checks there! But, I was always aware of the fees upfront and could choose to wait for larger earnings so it didn't hurt so bad.

    Times and processing are just bad, and I understand the fees, but it really does need to be disclosed when one chooses a payment method.

    Red face Revenue Giants

    Hello my friends,

    I'm very sorry just saw this thread and it has been a long time but I didnt want to leave this without any response.

    All payment fees are updated on the Terms and Condition and we make sure to add it on as many places as possible, the fee is never charged by Revenue Giants, it is a fee we are being charged by a third party payment company.

    any question pls dont hesitate to email me directly for a quick reply.

    Yours,
    Malci

    Skrill is Moneybooker's new name.

    Have you ever had trouble cashing a gaming check in the US?
