When you hit 100$ what do you usually do?

Do you immediately ask for the payament or wait for hit a higher earning?

What is the best practice, if any?



Thanks in advance for sharing your experience

I download every $200, I did the calculation and for the price I pay to receive the money in Brazil it makes sense, for other countries it might be diferent.

I just follow the exchange rates of the USD Dollar -> Bulgarian Lev and withdraw when the dollar is going up :D

The same, I will wait until the Dollar raise a little bit against Euro in terms of exchange rates.



The second personal criteria is, I am waiting to have enough to buy my dream camera and at that time the first criteria will disappear like clouds in the sky :)

I request as soon as the threshold is reached. However, I just let it sit in paypal and use it for buying stuff on the internet so don't pay any fees and exchange rates are not an issue.

I have done $100 a few times and a $1500 also, I'm now debating if I should wait till $10K for next payout, would seem a lot rather than small amounts that just disappear.

I always take them when I reach 100$ ( +- 20$). But I wanna change this because with this small amounts all my moneys are gone before I can see them. So I`m thinking about 500 $ for the next one :)

I take it out as soon as possible. DT is not a bank and will not pay you interest on money you leave with them. Also if you wait for a long time and something happens to DT what happens to your money? My guess is bye bye.

Hello. Any interesting stuff for photographers on internet via paypal? I see only shoes or tea shirts. Some links will be good, thank you.

It depends on how much I want to have. If I need some cash immediately, I withdraw at $100. If I don't really need it, I wait until I find some reason to need it so I can get more than just a hundred bucks. Plus I let the money sleep in my paypal account until USD rises against PHP.

I request once a week. It makes it easier for me to budget my bills, like a paycheck almost. Sometimes it is more money, and sometimes less, but nice to have it as a dependable income source.

I usually request it between $100-$150. I'm more focused how when I take the money out of Paypal since that is where the fees hit me if I don't withdraw over $150. That said, it sure bugs me to have to pay exchange fees on every dollar I make, even the Canadian sites pay me in US :(

Dreamstime has stated in the boards that they don't want to store your money - you've earned it, so take it ! I really can't think of any good reason to leave money in my account on DT.

Well, it doesn't make sense for someone like Lisafx to sit there and cash out every hour. :-)

I cash out every quarter but may change it to monthly.

We Americans are charged a fee too when we cash out. It's called "taxes." :p
