    I recently received a check from a British in-house program in British pounds Sterling ( £ ). Needless to say, my bank hit me up for a large fee to get this check deposited.

    Here's my question. Befree and CJ both have British merchants who report in pounds. Do they also pay in pounds, or is it automatically converted to dollars when they issue a check or direct deposit in CJ's case?

    With CJ, automatically converted to the currency you have decided to be paid in.

    (as I understand it).

    As for banking the check, try banking it into your credit card a/c - that may be away of getting around the rodgering the bank gave you.

    Scott:

    Ask them to send you your money via wire transfer. In my experience, the banks over there change a lot less on wire fees. So their costs are small. Another thing to do is to wait perhaps for your earnings to accumulate to $100+ - that way the processing costs are smaller percentage wise.

    I tried the wire transfer route with the original in-house program, but their accountant said I provided to many digits for the sort code.

    So a check was the only way to go. Funny though, no one else has has a problem getting my money to me this way.

    Well, until British merchants can start paying me in good ole US dollars, I'm removing their programs from my sites. It just ain't worth the hassle and expense. More for you boys and girls

    BTW, it took 8 months to get the check from the in-house program AFTER they closed up shop. I consider myself lucky on that one.
