    Here we go again.

    It needs to be over a fiver, as soon as it is the button turns green and becomes active.

    So why has it changed this?

    It was always a minimum of 5 cash out, 20 if you don't want any fees deducted.

    In that case I would guess it was a glitch in their system that it would allow cash out below the minimum stated and this greying out of the pay out button would be the fix for that, it has definitely always been stated that in the terms that it was a minimum of 5 cash out.

    This much is true and it used to tell you so... It still does but only after you hover over the Get Paid button. A tiny message appears then to wit, "Payment threshold 5.00". Another "improvement"...

    Oooh new thread. So anyone know how to unsubscribe to the old thread? It's stuck in my unread posts section and I can't work out how to get rid of it, can't read them as it's been deleted but also can't see how to unsubscribe?

    Mine is showing:

    Pending Balance: 0.00
    Balance: 0.00*
    Cannot request payout due to the following issues:
    You are requesting payout on an amount below the minimum. Please retry when you have more funds available.

    I have just cashed out so don't know why it thinks it has to tell me I have an insufficient balance; I have not asked to cash out again. I think PA's "new, improved" system needs tweaking, putting it politely.

    Since when is "retry" a word?

    I can find a list of subscribed threads but the deleted thread doesn't appear there I assume because it's deleted! Going round in circles!
