The Basic Necessities
# Use a valid email address - You will always want to have a valid email address to use when you sign up to a Pay To site. This is so that the website can contact you with inquiries about your account if needed. Also, some PTC sites require a valid email in order for your payments to be accepted. Another thing you will need your email address for is your payment processing site. For example, on PayPal you will need a valid email address in order to sign up for an account.
# A Paypal account - Most Pay To sites use PayPal as their preferred payment method. This is because it is the easiest of the payment processors to use in many peoples' opinion. Although with Paypal's recent rampage against PTC websites, we don't expect this payment processor to last long. The TitanCash network will be releasing a Payment Processor soon. Many people feel that this will be the best option as far as an alternative for PayPal.
# Do Your Homework - It is always good to know at least a little bit about a \"Pay To\" site before you join it. Usually, knowing about a site, and it's owners and staff, can help you determine whether you want to join it, or stay away for fear of it being a scam. If you know a bit about the owner, you can usually make a good judgement on whether or not its going to turn to a scam. Also, a lot of scammers start more than one site, so, see if the owner of the site you are joining owns any other site, and see if they are in good standing. If they are scams, chances are that site is as well.
# Read The Terms of Service - You will need to know at least a little bit about the Terms of Service each site provides for their members. Always skim over this and check for irregularities and rules that you might not know about so that you dont accidentally break them without knowing.
