    First question, that would come on the end of the post: If I'm in a country that only allows to send money through gaypal because of some bogus loophole that they promised to change on Jan 1st but they didn't, and I register with Plimus, and make a custom invoice isn't it the same for a guy who is paying me? Isn't he still paying through Paypal (I know there is such option), and sees no difference on his side?

    Short story:
    Before Christmas I needed some quick cash, and went to do a job from a freelancing section here.
    Sounded ok, took several hours work, and after 1st day all went well. I was posting on forums. Second day he told me I didn't change the content. I don't recall he told me I should, but doesn't matter I changed it. Also he said many posts get deleted. Of course.... [Active forums, adimns act on reports, no one likes advertising, some will always get deleted.] Still some weren't deleted, just not visible when not logged onto particular forum. I actually needed the money really bad, not for Xmass presents.. so I just tried to do my best.
    Guy kept saying he needed more posters, and first presented it as a monthly job. I asked to be paid after 3 days first, just as a measure of precaution, later I could go with weekly payments as he proposed. After 3 days he said this: "It seems again many posts already get deleted, we can pay you for 2 days work,
    just tell us your PayPal account, we don't need you to work for us any more."
    I also wanted to make some money to invest it good...
    Well, ok, 1 out of 3 or 4 posts get deleted. Before that I proposed him I do content that looks less bot-like. Was really opened up for negotiation, and willing to do it the way he says.
    "Here is the payment link: (You are still paying through PayPal) https://www.plimus.com/jsp/***********************
    (It seems I can only send money directly through PayPal.)
    Regards " I said, and got only: "We can only pay by PayPal." Isnt he paying through paypal anyway, and nothing changes on his side??
    Plimus has PayPal logo among others on the page, and only difference is I get the check.

    In your mind.
    Sometimes you have to walk people through the steps, maybe the person never looked or had time to see the drop menu of payment options. Check that first with them.

    Thanks Sanitarium. My thoughts also. That's why I replied with : " http://i55.tinypic.com/35lg1ac.jpg
    Yes, you are paying through PayPal. "
    And got: "I mean we just need your paypal email address."

    my understanding is that Plimus holds your money for 45 days .. how can you get quick cash out of it?

    Whatever you earn from 1st to 30th, you get paid on following month's 15th .

    Anyways, the thing is that .. the guy might not want to put all other information that Plimus is asking them .. including first / last name / address / phone number and bla bla .. its too personal for a guy who knows and work for 2 days only.

    just my opinion

    Right now I can't get quick money. I just want to get paid. PayPal promised to allow accepting money for my country on the Jan 1st. That didn't happen.
    Haven't thougth of that thing with personal info. I don't even know what they pull out, and lol I don't know what would I do with info of someone who lives in China on the orher side of the world. Besides, his company and the site I worked for is registered.

    Thank you for your opinion, Thanks given.
