Receiving a payment

I received an email stating I was paid but I show no payment when I look in my account. And I cannot see any pending payments. The email said something about confirming my email and it will show up automatically. I did it but nothing happened

It won't let me accept payments

I went to activity, and it says "Payment received," and under that, it says "your money is waiting" with the options to accept or decline it. The first time I clicked accept, I was told that I had to verify my account to be able to receive payments. So I went through the steps, confirmed the back and credit card and all that, but when I went back and tried to accept the payment again, the same thing popped up about having to verify my account. Whenever I go into my account settings it shows my account as being verified, and I even received an email confirming that I did indeed verify my account.

...So why can I still not accept the pending payments?


Received money not going into my account

I got a payment from a company and I got it in my email but when I collect the money, my balance is still zero. Note that I have confirmed my email, and did all of the other things so I get get payments and it still doesn't work. Also this email is the one that I got the payment from so it's not a scam. When I go back to the email, I can collect the money again

Not received payment - email confirmed.



I received an email telling me somebody had sent me money, but I hadn't confirmed my email. The email told me to confirm my email address on my account and the money would show up. I did so and the money isn't in my account.


Where is it?!

Re: Not received payment - email confirmed.

Sometime new payment included security reason, but I feel you should contact them to ensure true transaction. Thank you....
