Cashing out earnings in Sponsored Tweets is a fairly simple process. We still field many questions about it though, through the Sponsored Tweets Twitter account, so I thought I’d make a quick rundown of how the process works. Hopefully it’ll help those who may be confused, unaware, or have questions.
First of all, we pay our Twitter Publishers through PayPal. If you don’t already have a PayPal account set-up then visit http://paypal.com right now and get that done. You may not need it today but you will eventually. Go ahead…we’ll wait for you!
OK, now that you’ve got your PayPal all taken care of, let’s move on to your Sponsored Tweets account. Sign-in to your account using you Twitter handle (we do not store this information; we connect with the Twitter API*.) Once you’ve successfully signed-in, in the top righthand of your account you should see a “Withdraw” button that looks like this (using my account as an example):
As you can see, I have $11.04 sitting in my account. “But I thought I had to have earned at least $50 before I could cash out?” you might be asking yourself. Well, that’s no longer true! About two weeks ago we started offering “early” cash-out, with a $2 fee attached. So now you can take money any time you want!
If you’re ready, go ahead and click on that “Withdraw” button, and you should then see a screen like this:
At this point, just fill-out all the requested information on this screen and the next…and you’re on your way!
The last screen you’ll see is the one confirming payment. Congrats! Now you’ve got some extra cash in your pocket: buy some ice cream, catch a Lady Gaga show, or put it away for that European trip you’ve been saving for!
Be sure to let us know if you have any questions about cashing-out. For other tips you can check-out our Support Forums.
