Why should I choose to be paid by direct deposit instead of by check? (Direct Deposit is unavailable to international associates)

There are several advantages to choosing to be paid by direct deposit instead of by check if you are based within the United States:
  • The minimum payment threshold for direct deposit is only $10, compared to $100 for checks.
  • We deduct a $15 processing fee from all monthly checks sent to Associates, but there is no charge for payment by direct deposit or gift certificates.
  • Direct deposit payments are completely secure and reach your bank account three to seven days faster than paper checks.
International Associates: Unfortunately, we are unable to offer Direct Deposit as a payment method for you, please choose payment by Check or by Gift Card. If you choose Payment by Check and your billing address is outside the United States, we will waive the $15 check fee.
