Once you have reached the required minimum of $100 you can select one of three options to withdraw your money: PayPal, Paxum or Wire Transfer. Every one of them has its pros and cons. With PayPal, you’re limited to withdraw $500 at a time and the number of payments is 3 per 24 hours. To use Wire Transfer you should have at least $500 on your account and cover additional bank fees. Paxum seems to be the most profitable payment method for it has no fees and no maximum payment limit.
TrafficStars takes good care of its clients providing them with full support 24 hours a day. The platform has created a comprehensive knowledge base with guidelines and FAQ where you will most certainly find the answer to all your questions. Moreover, in case you are not able to find it there you can submit a ticket and forward your problem to the appropriate department or contact the support team via firstname.lastname@example.org. You’ll get your reply within 24 hours. Besides, there are also assigned account managers who will be happy to show you around and provide valuable insight.
