I Would Love Paypal Added To The Rewards, What Do You Think?

Ask a Question

I use ebay a fair bit and whenever I have been able to claim a reward from somewhere in the past, that has paypal, then that's my first choice, as I can either buy something off ebay or transfer the money into a Bank account so it's ideal, would you find it useful yourself?

Well, Amazon credit is as good as real money. Although, if the creators of LD [ Tom and Kelsey ] then that's good news for you.

I am happy with Amazon, but I do agree that Paypal is more flexible, as you can do more with it. But I believe there will be more transaction fees required

Be careful what you wish or ask for - there could be income tax implications if actual money was paid into a PayPal account. It could be regarded as earnings and have to be declared to HMRC. Vouchers which can only be used for goods are a slightly different matter.

I would also assume that Amazon vouchers do not cost LD anywhere near the same amount as the face value.

davidstockport I can't see many people on PAYE setting up as self employed and submitting a tax return after earning Β£5 / Β£10 / Β£35 on here but it's technically correct! With the time it takes to make 50 quid on LD though, it'd probably be split between two tax years at least.

Well it's already paid into accounts from doing Surveys, I always chose the ones with paypal for a reward first, that was before I went brain dead with them all though!! πŸ˜‚ x

Amazon gift cards are far more likely to bring money back into LD as a business if you see an Amazon offer on here and click on it.

There may be other incentives to them as David has highlighted. Topcashback pay out more if you take it as an Amazon gift card so there's definitely some kind of incentive to use them as payouts.

With the size and frequency of rewards on here (something like 40p max a day in points), I don't reckon many people would struggle to spend the Amazon gift cards especially with them lasting two years.

Dennab......only two years? I was under the impression it was 10 years.

I must admit I am happy with Amazon gift cards as they have everything I have ever searched for even obscure things like gutter balls and curtain clips!

Lynibis You're right. Maybe it used to be two years. Either is long enough for me with the amount of money we're talking about though.

I like PayPal rewards because you can transfer money to a bank account but I would not like to pay a fee to receive the reward. I will some use for the Amazon gift card one day.

I like the amazon gift cards as I cam easily add them onto my account and I can save them up to buy something nice for my son that he wouldn't have gotten otherwise or they can be used by my husband when he buys his books etc and ot helps to save money elsewhere. I imagine that paypal would take a fee so you would end up getting less than your Β£5/Β£15/Β£35/Β£50 and then if you were to transfer it to your bank then it would another fee.

As much as I respect and trust PayPal I vote stick with Amazon vouchers. They have a long validity date and can be accumulated for a special purchase

I suppose if you have a PayPal account this is a reasonable request but I don't, never will have, and therefore am happy with just Amazon rewards as there is always something I want or need.

Morning πŸ™‚

There are potentially new rewards in the pipeline (we're looking into ways we can offer other gift cards).

Paypal isn't an option in the methods we're exploring at the moment but is certainly something we could look into in the future πŸ‘

I am totally fine with Amazon vouchers, however, I can see why some folks would want the option for a Paypal payment. Dennab i agree with you too, LD can always make something back with the deals over here.

Or maybe more online vouchers for other places such as New Look, JD sports and river island instead of just amazon.
