When your cash credits reach a certain level, you are eligible to receive payments from us. This level is set by the webmaster every month and can vary slightly depending various factors. In most cases, our minimum payout amount is Rs 1000. This means, if you have a minimum cash balance of Rs 1000, you will receive a payment from us.
Typically, we will announce payments once in a month, which will be on the first week of every month. When payments are announced, the payment amount will be deducted from the total cash credits earned by the member. The deducted amount will be added to the profile of the member as 'Cash payment'. If your name and payment amount is announced in our forum or if you see an entry called "Cash Payment" under prizes section in your profile, you are eligible to receive the payment from us to your bank account.
If there is a payment announced for you, you must upload an invoice to receive the payment. You must fill your address, contact information and bank details in the invoice.

We prefer to transfer the money online from our bank account to your bank account. For this, we need to get the following information from you:
- Your user id in this site

- Published payment amount
- Your Name exactly as in the Bank account
- Full address of your Bank and branch
- Your phone number
- Core Banking Account Number.
You must fill all the above information in the invoice upload to the payment details page.
What if my bank does not have Core Banking account ?
If your bank does not support Core Banking, then we can send you the money by demand draft. Please fill all details in the Invoice except the core banking number. Make sure you are providing a valid payee name to receive the payment in the bank.
If you do not have account in the bank, you may use your parents account information to receive payment. (Only the payee name need to be your parent's name. All other details should be yours)
Here is the typical payment process:
1. When your cash credits reach the minimum balance, we will announce a payment to you.
2. You download the invoice template and fill the details. Signature is optional in the invoice.
3. Visit the payment details page and upload the invoice in the payment details page.
4. We will transfer the payment to you within 10 days from the date of uploading the invoice.
There is no fixed timeframe to complete the payment process, but we expect you to submit the invoice within 2 weeks from the date of payment announcement so that we can complete the accounts and transactions within the same month. If there is a delay from your side due to any reasons, that is fine and no need to inform us about the delay. We will pay you as long as the delay is not more than 1 year. If you submit the invoice after 1 year from the date of payment announcement, we may or may not pay, which will be decided by our accounting team.
If you have any questions about a specific payment, visit the payment details page and submit your question through the option provided in that page.
