I'd much rather use PayPal, that way you don't have to wait for a check to arrive, when you can just deposit the money directly through PayPal into your bank account or card.

paypal!

but checks might be best, never know who's phishing.

direct deposit = moronic thinking.

Don't know what's best.  I get mine by check.  It may take a few days longer, but that's ok, they come like promised.

paypal...agreed that it is faster, easier to track, and I can use the funds by transferring them to a brick and mortar account, online, or via a paypal debit card.  for the wee bit of fees, it's worth the convenience, and sometimes the fees are absorbed by the payor.  that's definitely nice!

I prefer paypal. I've had mail delivered to the wrong address and had mail stolen.

   I would agree that Pay pal would be the faster way of getting your payment, I personally use direct deposit to my checking account that keeps the processing fees at pay pal.

I'm going to use paypal since it seems to be faster and more convenient than checks

I can tell you that checks are far more likely to have problems than PayPal or Direct Deposit.  It's not really possible to "lose" an electronic payment but checks get misdelivered/lost by the post office occasionally.  And if there's a problem with an electronic payment, you don't have to pay a $15 stop payment fee before you can have it reissued.  All in all, if you're worried about receiving your payment, I would recommend PayPal or Direct Deposit to minimize the (already very small) chance of problems occuring.

I haven't cashed out here yet, believe I will this month, and will be getting it through PayPal, and I have a PayPal debit card to access my funds.
