    wait till you have that amount to withdraw, patience is a virtue. theres no fee withdrawing from stock site, the only fee is if you are withdrawing form paypal less than 199 as far as i know but you can always accumulate your credits until one lump sum that can put a bigger smile on your face
    yup i understand how it works now. haha.

    why inactive? maybe i'm missing something out - are the steps involved in uploading photos very tedious?

    Hi guys,

    I submit also to seven sites. I have both paypal and Moneybooker's (online ewallet) for receiving payment...haven't cleared minimums yet tho. From what I understand, Paypal accounts in Sg have 2 balances, one in USD and one in SGD and you request the conversion when you want to transfer funds between the two. That's how mine works, but I don't use that one, I use my US one.

    I have written some preliminary notes about the sites I submit to if you're interested...it's at http://photography.newbieholdem.com (microstock tab)

    yeah it's relatively safe. They don't ask you for banking info anyways, just address and phone number (usually optional, I've never received any calls). U.S. companies are required by law to meet gov't standards pertaining to the security of their computer/servers, especially those dealing directly online. So your info is much safer in comparison to a home computer...lol.

    At the beginning I subscribed to all sites. But I've found out only 4 sites are worth uploading photos. The rest are non-performing time wasters.

    paypal did ask me for my credit card number/security code/expiry etc etc. it's for linking back to remove the withdrawal/sending limits and more..

    Actually there's a charge. For instance, if the current exchange rate of USD:SGD is 1:1.5 , they will calculate as 1:1.4625. Meaning instead of getting $1.50, you get $1.4625. It's 2.5%.

    I won't go into specifics.

    I just want to illustrate that subscribing to all sites is not a smart idea. You have to do your own research.
