About FirstChoice Pay
: FirstChoice Pay is a service that allows participating web sites like ClickCash to
send payments to independent contractors, like you, electronically. With FirstChoice Pay, you can be paid one of two ways. First, you can be
issued a prepaid MasterCard/ATM debit card, onto which
your regular payments from ClickCash are electronically loaded. You may then use your FirstChoice Pay Card in any number of different
ways to realize your earnings, including ATM cash withdrawal, online bank transfers & wires, point-of-purchase sales, or with any merchant or bank
that features the MasterCard logo, or the ATM logos Cirrus or Maestro. Your second option is International Bank Transfer. With this, FirstChoice Pay can deposit
payments directly into your regular bank account.
You can obtain general information about FirstChoice Pay at FirstChoicePay.com
, including a
generic Frequently-Asked Questions
feature that applies
to all the companies and independent contractors who use the FirstChoice Pay service. To learn more about the International Bank Transfer option,
visit FirstChoice Pay's Local Bank Transfer Service information page
(The FirstChoice Pay website and FirstChoice Pay FAQ are very valuable resources
that we encourage you to carefully read).
For specific information unique to ClickCash, and how it and FirstChoice Pay work together to pay you electronically, please review the questions and answers below.
What exactly does FirstChoice Pay mean for me as a ClickCash Affiliate?
With FirstChoice Pay, you can either be issued a reloadable prepaid MasterCard or, if you are outside of the US, receive payments directly to your bank account. We transfer your weekly commissions directly to you via the FirstChoice Pay service. With the FirstChoice Pay prepaid MasterCard, we send your payments to a "virtual account" from which you can transfer funds to your card any time you like.
You'll get your money fast, usually by the end-of-day on Wednesday. You can withdraw your cash at practically any ATM on Earth or make purchases at any retailer accepting debit cards (anywhere featuring the "MasterCard," "Cirrus," or "Maestro" logo).
In addition, you can review your balance and transaction history at FirstChoicePay.com. If you sign up for FirstChoice Pay's International Bank Transfer instead, your payments will go DIRECTLY into your bank account, usually within 1 week (the exact time depends on your bank).
Who is eligible for the FirstChoice Pay service?
If you already have a FirstChoice Pay card, you can link it to your account immediately. If not, any active ClickCash affiliate who has generated at least one commission is eligible to sign up for FirstChoice Pay. You can order a new FirstChoice Pay prepaid MasterCard, link an existing FirstChoice Pay account to your ClickCash affiliate account, or, if you are outside of the United States, sign up for International Bank Transfer (U.S. users can instead choose the "Direct Deposit" payment option from within the "Modify My Account" section).
How do I sign up for a FirstChoice Pay account?
To sign up for your FirstChoice Pay account, log into your ClickCash account then click "Update Account" at the top of the page. From here, scroll down to the PAYMENT METHODS area and click the "Setup" link beside the FirstChoice Pay option. This will take you to the FirstChoice Pay site. Once at their page, click the "Get Your Prepaid MasterCard Card Now" link to apply for your card or choose the International Bank Transfer Service. Either way, approval can take 24-48 hours; FirstChoice Pay will e-mail you directly when this is done. Once you have your approved account and are ready to receive your payouts via FirstChoice Pay, return to ClickCash, access "Update Account" and select FirstChoice Pay as your payment method. If you are ordering a prepaid card, you may switch over prior to receiving your card, but after FirstChoice Pay has approved your account, but we recommend that you wait for receipt of your physical card from FirstChoice Pay before making the switch, since you will need your card for MasterCard and ATM transactions.
What if I already have a FirstChoice Pay account? How do I get my ClickCash commissions paid through it?
If you already have a FirstChoice Pay account, simply log into your ClickCash account and click on "Update Account." Scroll down to the PAYMENT METHODS section and click the "Setup" link beside the FirstChoice Pay option. This will take you to the FirstChoice Pay site. Once at their page, click the "Already Applied For a Card" link. This will enable you to link your ClickCash payouts to your FirstChoice Pay account. After completing the process on their site, it can take up to half an hour for FirstChoice Pay to link your account; once done and you are ready, return to ClickCash, access "Update Account" and select FirstChoice Pay as your payment method.
Does it work everywhere?
The FirstChoice Pay card works everywhere we have affiliates! Between the three ATM networks supported (MasterCard, Cirrus, and Maestro), you'll find millions of places to use your card worldwide. The International Bank Transfer service is available just about anywhere there are banks (outside of the U.S.).
Are there any fees associated with using FirstChoice Pay?
With the prepaid MasterCard, as with any debit account, there are fees charged by the issuing bank. ClickCash does not get any revenue back from the fees (in fact, we're "eating" some of the charges ourselves); they all go straight to the bank. While there is no charge to sign up for the International Bank Transfer Service, there is a charge for each direct deposit transfer you receive. Depending on your country, FirstChoice Pay may convert the U.S. Dollar deposit into your native country; if so, a currency conversion fee, competitive with or better than that of most banks, will apply.

Can I change my mind later?
If you elect to be paid by FirstChoice Pay now, yes, you can always change your mind later. If you decide to switch payment methods, just log into your ClickCash account, then click the "Update Account" link above, and select the appropriate option (available choices vary based on country). Your next ClickCash payment will be sent via the method you choose. (Typically, ClickCash payouts are processed each Sunday, so if you switch back after the processing starts, you're new choice takes effect the following week.)
I just asked for a FirstChoice Pay account. What happens next? What happens in the meantime? When my card arrives, will it already have last week's commissions?
FirstChoice Pay reviews all requests for new accounts. Approval typically takes 24-48 hours. Once approved, you may choose to start using your FirstChoice Pay account immediately for receipt of ClickCash commissions. You will just need to log in and switch your Payment Method to FirstChoice Pay. Once you notify us that you wish to receive payments to your approved FirstChoice Pay account, payments to either your FirstChoice Pay "virtual" account (for card holders) or your own bank account (for International Bank Transfer users) will start!
When each week will my weekly ClickCash commissions be available on my FirstChoice Pay card?
We process payouts as soon as the pay-week ends. As it takes FirstChoice Pay a couple of business days to receive and process everything, your earnings for the previous week will typically be available in your "virtual" FirstChoice Pay account for you to transfer to your prepaid card by the end of the business day on Wednesday (US Eastern time). International Bank Transfers will take a few business days extra, depending on your particular bank. In the event of a holiday, however, there may be an additional day's delay. For prepaid card holders, you can check your FirstChoice Pay account balance and transfer money from your account to your prepaid card at any time through your FirstChoicePay.com
If I'm being paid via FirstChoice Pay, does the "Minimum Payment Amount" setting still work?
Yes, you will only be paid once you've reached the minimum payment amount you specify.
I don't want to receive any payments at all while I wait for my card to arrive. Is there any way I can start earning money now, but not be paid until I have my card?
If you do not wish to receive payments via check while you wait for your FirstChoice Pay card to arrive, choose the "Hold Payments" option in the Payment Methods section of your account settings. Your funds will not be released until you have return and choose a different payment method.
I am an iFriends webcam model. I log into ClickCash using my webcam model screenname. I configure my ClickCash links with "&acct=[My_Model_Screenname]". How will FirstChoice Pay work in my situation?
If you are using your iFriends webcam model account to earn ClickCash commissions, you would be paid through iFriends. So, if you would like to receive payments via FirstChoice Pay, you will need to opt-in to FirstChoice Pay through your iFriends ID Card
instead. ClickCash pays out commissions to the payment method you have selected for your webcam model account, so if you've already elected to receive payments via FirstChoice Pay there, your ClickCash commissions will automatically pay out to that account.
I understand that ClickCash requires me to fax in a written agreement if I use FirstChoice Pay? What's the deal with that?
That is incorrect. While you must click to affirm an online "clickwrap" agreement when you create your ClickCash account, and FirstChoice Pay has its own online agreement, ClickCash requires a signed written agreement on file only for larger accounts that generate significant weekly payment volume. (The current threshold is $1,000 per week; ClickCash will not release a payment in excess of this amount -- as a physical check or an issuance via the FirstChoice Pay service -- without a written agreement on file.)
I already have a FirstChoice Pay prepaid card, but I want to switch to International Bank Transfer/Direct Deposit (or vice versa). Can I do that?
No problem. Just contact FirstChoice Pay
, and they can help you switch over.
Where can I get help?
