I am going to get paid this time via a paper check.

I had been using Direct Deposit which I liked, but, I have had my Fusion Cash Payment Picture Bonus denied.  Apparently I block out too much information for Fusion Cash or something when I post a picture of my deposit.

All you need to block is your personal info. But don't block out anything FC.

I use PayPal.  It is a bit faster than a check and you don't have to fool around with depositing it and waiting for it to clear.  Same advantages to direct deposit just a different account

I think it would be fun to get a check in the mail, but I've always used PayPal because it keeps me from having to transfer money from my hometown bank to PayPal.  I have three subscriptions at PayPal that I pay each month, and my FusionCash money provides enough to cover these expenses.

Check. I don't know why. Paypal is easier. I guess I'm just old-fashioned in some ways.

A revolting experience this past few weeks has made me rethink my stand on PayPal. I did a currency exchange from Bitcoin to USD and they sent a dozen or so payments to my PayPal account and when they saw that a few of them filed disputes when they did not get what they paid me for (out of my hands), PayPal shut my account of over 20 years down for good. I have to wait 180 days to have a chance of recovering the $500 balance I have in there, but in the meantime that money is of no use to me.

Dang, that sux... :bad:
3 days ago I got on Paypal and they told me they noticed unusual activity and I had to reset my password  ???

I'm constantly transferring money to my bank account from survey sites....hope somekind of problem isn't on the horizon with them.... :turkey:

Unfortunately, 20 years with no problems, built an unfounded level of trust that bit me hard. I should have known better, but I also experienced several times when I need funds in there and had to wait many days to transfer it from my bank. Now I am leaning toward something like Zelle or Google Pay, so my money is safe in my FDIC bank until I need to pay someone.

I prefer Paypal.  It's quicker and I don't have to bother going to the bank to cash a check.

So did I for 18 years, until they restricted my account with $500 in it that I could use elsewhere. Now I need to wait 6 months before I can maybe get it back.

I do direct deposit check; I know it's coming and I don't have to request the transfer or anything.

Paypal is the best and you only get a 1099 if you make over $600
