Thanks. They make it sound like a nightmare in the guidelines...
Once you've done it a few times, it will make more sense. The first time is always tricky as you don't want to make a mistake. Chat is quite helpful so use it if you need to. I am on my 6th cycle and it's pretty straightforward now. This time, I only had 3 viable ones so was finished in an hour and a half. I don't make much money from this project as I choose to never return any item. I have been quite lucky though as every month I get to buy things I need/want. The ones I don't I either gift or send to a charity shop.

Thanks - that makes me feel better. I'll plunge in today and get it over and done with.

I just had an email for a project called Newhalen, no idea what I have signed up for, can anyone explain and what the rates are. Thanks.

Western Union isn't involved for me? I thought Appen only paid people via Payoneer now?

I set it up so that the money goes straight from Payoneer into Paypal when Appen changed to using Payoneer (I think this was some time ago - I can't remember doing it but it must have been what they recommended at the change over time). So when Appen pay me, it goes into Payoneer then straight to my Paypal account.

I would love to use Wise to convert, but as far as I can see Paypal have made it extremely difficult to add a USD Wise account onto a UK Paypal account and from my research so far, the same seems true of Payoneer. So I'm a bit stuck!
Yes sorry, Payoneer that's what I meant . I manually transfer it from there into Wise.

Well, my first time out. 2/5 were over the purchase limit so couldn't buy. 1 led to an error in the shop's website and another said I didn't have sufficient permissions to view the ad.

That left just 1 that I was able to order, which was for diet pills - I weigh about 8st...

Onwards.

I looked into that and it doesn't look like I can change the transfer method myself. I think it must have been set up for me by Appen when I first opened the Payoneer account. the money goes straight from Payoneer into Paypal the moment it hits my Payoneer account and I cant see any way to change it from within Payoneer. Don't know if I'm being daft, but I really cannot see any way to change it....

This is so similar to me, I was so excited to get the email that I had been selected this month then I only got 5 too and I was also only able to order one of them which was almost definitely a scam website so I’m seriously doubting I’ll be receiving anything for my £40! Didn’t even understand what the item was anyway, it was some weird collectible... I paid with Paypal so I’m hoping I can get a refund from them if nothing shows up (which I’m sure it won’t)

Bit deflating though isn’t it especially as people doing it with Lionbridge seem to have loads of things to buy! Hopefully we will get selected again next month and have more things to actually purchase!

In Payoneer, I just go to Pay > Make a payment and then it gives me the option to do a bank transfer...don't you have that option?

no because the money from Appen never actually stays in my Payoneer account. As soon as Appen pay me, it goes into Payoneer then instantly to my Paypal. But I can't see where this is set up in order to change it. It must have been something I set up originally when I created the Payoneer account (under Appen's direction) but I can't see how to change it. If I can find a way cancel the instant transfer to Paypal, then I can see that I could set up a bank transfer elsewhere....

Have you looked in Settings > Bank accounts > Bank accounts for withdrawal
I withdraw direct to my bank

@Bexxx yes try the above and then "recipient accounts", if the account is there you should have the option to delete it. If that doesn't work I would contact them and ask if they can remove it manually

no bank accounts listed whatsoever in my settings. so it looks like I'll have to contact them to do it manually...

I wonder what happened. I like you set mine up via Appen but always went via bank transfer, never had paypal option.

Is it normal to not hear back from Appen for several weeks after applying to a project? I’ve had around 10 applications to join various projects sitting there for weeks and they’re still listed under active processes as ‘in progress’

dunno if I’m just being impatient :p

Yes, I can't remember how long I waited for a proper project but it was ages, I want to say 10 months.
