    Hi There,
    Thanks for getting in touch about Circle Pay ending its service. We have recently been made aware of this change, and are in touch with Circle to discuss further.
    We will announce our plans for transition of participants using this cashout method, as soon as possible.
    Best,
    Jim
    reads to me like they got notified at the same time us users did. will update if i get any other responses. BACS would be very nice.

    I've not heard anything from Circle either. I've also checked my spam folder and nothing there. With such important news they should be emailing all users, not just selected ones.

    To anyone using Circle to cash out, they are closing on 8th July.

    I seem to be averaging just over one 20+ payout per month, and I just had one a week ago, so with any luck I'll get another one in before I have to start paying Paypal for the privilege.

    I have an issue with Circle. My most recent payout from Prolific was paid to Circle today but when I try to cash out, it wants me to set up a new account to pay to even though I have my main account already linked to Circle. It doesn't seem to take the same details if I enter them and won't let me cash out normally. Stuck looking at my balance but cannot access it...

    I managed to cash out to Circle today and then transfer the balance to my bank a/c without a problem. It will be the last time! Oddly, they wanted some further details about me (address and birthday) when I went to log on, but I navigated that successfully.


    So I think I will now just close the Circle account and hope that PA can set up another free alternative.

    I recently changed my current account to Nationwide - hope that's not an issue being a building society rather than a bank. Have emailed Circle for help.

    It's probably the fact that your account details have changed and Circle need to have security in place to make sure the change is genuine.

    I had that a couple of weeks back. I left it and tried again a couple of days later and it went through fine. I did wonder at the time if it was because it was a bank holiday. Shouldn't make any difference, but you never know.
