How Are Our PayPal Payouts Done? Step-by-Step Instructions

Dec 17, 2019 last_updated min_read

You have successfully installed the Honeygain money-making app, set it to work, and reached the payout threshold of $20. Now, all that's left is to receive your payout! Even though the payout process might seem simple, we figured we would give you a thorough explanation of how it works exactly so you can receive your earnings with no worries involved!

Five Steps to Follow

Step 1: Make sure you are eligible for a payout

With Honeygain, you earn credits before converting them into actual dollars. You are paid 3 credits for every 10MB of traffic, and 10 credits equal to $0.01. The minimum payout is $20 (20,000 credits) – once you reach the sum, a 'Request payout' button appears.

If the payout button is unavailable for you just yet, make sure you have the required number of credits in your balance. If not – simply continue using the app and reach the minimum amount! If you have over 20,000 credits and the payout button still doesn't appear, feel free to contact Customer Support.

Step 2: Get an invitation letter

Once you are eligible for the payout, send a request by simply clicking on the payout button. Your email will then be added to our payout list. We'll proceed by entering your information to Tipalti – our selected payment processing platform. Soon, you'll get an invitation email from Tipalti – please make sure you click on the link provided!

Invitation to Honeygain's payout portal

Your payout request is reviewed manually and then forwarded to Tipalti, which means the invitation might come on the same or the next business day. We also conduct internal fraud checks that might in some cases require extra time to be processed. This could force a further delay for you to get an invitation.

If your invitation is late, please check whether your registration email is typed in correctly in the Honeygain dashboard. Without the invitation, you will not be able to claim your payout!

Step 3: Register on the payout system

As you open the link, you will be redirected to our payout system's registration page. Simply enter your email address, create a password, and follow the security regulations.

TIP: Your Honeygain registration email address does not need to match your PayPal email!

Once you have registered to the system, enter your payment details, as shown in the picture below.

Tipalti will then run its own risk checks to determine if you are eligible for the payment. Mainly, they check whether a payee has a connection to any blocked users and/or whether there are several accounts linked to the same payment details. If you do not receive the validation from Tipalti, your payment will be dismissed, and you will be contacted by email.

Step 4: Receive your money in PayPal

Once you’ve successfully submitted your PayPal payment details to the Tipalti system, you can be sure to receive a payout as fast as possible. Usually, it will take no more than 2 business days to receive your payment. In case of payment failure, you will get a notifying email right away with detailed information on all further steps.

Step 5: Claim your money in PayPal

If you have little to no experience with PayPal, you might get a bit confused with this part. How do you claim the money from PayPal? It's simple: wait for the system's email that informs you of a payment received and click Claim. If this seems to fail, make sure your email address is verified on PayPal, and you account has U.S. dollars added as a currency.

Once you claim your money in PayPal, you can keep them in your PayPal balance or transfer them to your bank account by clicking Collect Your Money and providing the information needed. You can choose from an instant transfer for a 1% fee or a free one that takes 1–3 business days.

Payout Issues

The majority of users who contact us about not receiving their payout simply ignore either the Tipalti invitation or the PayPal Payment Claim email. Without an invitation or actually claiming the payment through the Claim email, you will not be able to receive your payment – check your email inbox so you don’t miss out on them!

It's also important to note that PayPal might put the payout on hold for a certain time due to major security reasons on PayPal's end. Honeygain does not control or have any right to affect this process. If this happens, you will be notified right away, and the payout may be on hold for over a week. In this case, please contact the PayPal Help Center directly.

So... To Conclude:

  • Before you ask for your free money, make sure you keep track of your credits. The minimum amount of the payout is $20 (20,000 credits), so you have to make sure you have the required minimum amount of credits to cash out.
  • Once you qualify for a payout, your payment button will become available, and you’ll be able to send a payout request. After we receive it, you’ll be sent an invitation to register to Tipalti. Once you complete the registration successfully, enter your PayPal details.
  • Don’t worry if your PayPal email doesn’t match with the email you entered to register to Honeygain – this is not a necessity!
  • If your payout is late – check your email: you might need to Claim the money on PayPal, or it might be on hold due to PayPal's security reasons. Other than that, enjoy your easy and care-free payout!
