PostPosted: Thu Aug 18, 2016 9:53 am    Post subject: Update about creator payouts for Turkey and Egypt Creators Reply with quote

If you are a Creator who resides in Turkey then this announcement is applicable to you. We are also messaging directly all affected Creators today. If you are not a creator affected by this, please refrain from participating in this discussion or making off-topic posts. As a reminder, we have a forum topic for Earn Money program discussions.

As previously communicated, Paypal has halted operations in Turkey and IMVU uses Paypal for making creator payouts as per our Earn Money program. We have creators from both countries who have elected to earn money for their catalog sales.

Since the time we could no longer send payouts via Paypal to creators in Turkey, we have attempted to identify alternate methods do make payouts so that creators from such countries can continue to participate in the Earn Money program. However after exploring several alternatives, we have not been able to identify a feasible option.

We have now blocked all affected accounts from earning any further cash going forward. They can of course continue to earn Credits for their sales.

For those Creators who have a cash balance in their accounts from previous sales, we are issuing one-time only payouts in the following manner.

**Please note that this is strictly a one-time only process and only applicable to Turkey creators who are already in the Earn Money program.

Verified Creators with a cash balance (pended + available) of USD 49.99 or less:

We will add IMVU Credits to such accounts at the rate of 1,000 Credits per $0.40 of the accumulated balance. This process will be completed within the next 7 days.

Unverified Creators with a cash balance (pended + available) of USD 50.00 or more:

We will add IMVU Credits to such accounts at the rate of 1,000 Credits per $0.40 of the accumulated balance. This process will be completed within the next 7 days.

Verified Creators with a cash balance (pended + available) of USD 50.00 or more:

We will issue a check as a one-time payout of the entire cash balance . We have reached out to such Creators to obtain the accurate mailing address where a check can be sent.

Affected Creators in this category must provide us with their mailing address via a creator payout ticket by October 1st, 2016. If we do not receive that information, we will issue Credits to such accounts at the rate of 1,000 Credits per $0.40 of the accumulated balance after October 1st.

We thank you for your patience as we tried to come up with a solution which would allow these Creators to continue to earn cash for their sales and want to offer our sincere apology that no such solution was possible.

EDIT: removed references to Egypt since we were able to find a work around with PayPal. (by jeff)

I have created my imvu account in Turkey. But after 5 years living in Turkey I moved to the Netherlands. I can just use my PayPal account, I'm also not earning cash right now. Later when the time comes, will this be an issue for me? Because I'm not living in Turkey anymore. Can I still earn cash?

I'm from Turkey but i have relatives in other countries. Can i use their paypal address to keep earning money? Because i've been already using my mom's paypal adress and imvu was fine with it... And what you did to us was already cruel. We understand you don't care about people who pay their bills & rents with the money they earns from IMVU. But please atleast leave us an open door and help us out little bit....

I guess it's because PayPal stopped being used in Turkey. This is really stupid to be honest, if this goes on imvu will lose alot of creators...

If you registered from EG or TR, your account may have received a message and blocked from earning cash.

However, if you now reside in another country and have a valid paypal account, you may earn money and reach out to us via payout request system to get your account unblocked.

Also, as per our policies that have always been in place, we require creators to use their own paypal accounts to receive payments. We would not have authorized another person's account to be used.

Thank you

There are restrictions on what type of paypal accounts can receive payouts. Not many have those types.
