Nuts and Bolts: PayPal Payment Method

February 23, 2018

Nuts & Bolts – PayPal Payment Method


There is only one day that trumps payday. The day you actually receive your pay! GCU pays artists on a quarterly basis (payments are issued within 30 days after the end of each quarter). GCU sends artists’ payments via mailed check or PayPal. GCU strongly encourages artists to set-up a PayPal account and set their preferred Payment Method in their GCU account to PayPal for a handful of reasons:


1. no transaction fees (GCU pays them)
2. instantaneous receipt
3. online deposit – transfer your funds directly to your financial institution
4. avoid mailing address & deliver errors
5. natural disasters – rain, wind, sleet, spilled wine … we’ve seen it all. Some checks take the scenic route, really take a beating needing to be re-issued (means you have to wait even longer)


See this related post about earnings and payments.


Note: if you are puzzled why you have not received your payment via PayPal, double check in your GCU Account Information that you entered your PayPal account email address correctly.  Also, this sounds so simple but it’s worth saying, you MUST set up a PayPal account in order to receive payments.


The difference is made in the details!

    I had held off using Paypal due to the fees they take out. So just to be clear, if I switch from paper check to Paypal, GCU is paying those fees? I guess I need to switch over!
