What can prevent me from cashing out?
PointClub advises all its members to be straightforward and honest when answering surveys. This platform has checks in place to ensure that all respondents will not give false and conflicting answers when taking the survey. Failure to pass these checks will have your submissions rejected. You are entitled to create only one account; you are not allowed to have multiple accounts as a means to earn more money. This might result in you being banned entirely from the platform and losing whatever amount you have accumulated in your account. Lastly, if you do not have enough accrued credits in your account, you will not be able to cash out.
