 Wondering if anyone got this email. Looks suspicious as it it is trying to get me to sign up for another payment system.  Really? PayPal will be delayed by 3-4 weeks? That's by this seems to smell a little.

Thank you for your continued support of MotionElements.

For the month of May 2016, we are due to make payout via PayPal for your royalty earnings.
However we are facing some technical issues in making the payment out to you via Paypal. These technical issues will result in a 3 to 4 week delay in your payments.

We are sorry that you are facing such a delay in receiving your payment. We have also been receiving feedback from various sellers, like yourself, about Paypal. This includes Sellers having to pay multiple charges (Commercial Payment Fee 3.9% + US$0.30 + *Cross Border Fee 0.5%) in order to receive funds from the sellers' Paypal account.

We are committed to you, our valued sellers, and have taken these immediate suggestions for you to minimise the hassle with your payments.
1) We are making easier and quicker alternative payment methods available to you.
2) We have appointed 2 other payment partners Skrill and Payoneer for your immediate consideration.
3) When you receive your payments via these partners, your either pay nothing or very minimal charges (US$1 to US$3 per month!)
4) If you would like to change your payout account to Skrill or Payoneer, you can do so via

We are confident, as a result of these actions, that MotionElements will emerge as a more reliable and even more responsive partner than ever before.

However, if you would still like to receive payment via  PayPal , we can continue do so, but kindly note that it will be done with the 3 to 4 week delays as mentioned - we will advise as soon as payment is made through to you.

Please accept our sincere apologies again for this technical issue. Nothing is more important than regaining your trust and all of us here hope you will give us the opportunity to welcome you back to MotionElements soon and provide you the positive experience that you have come to expect from us.

We look forward to your reply, in order to set up the smoothest royalty payment option for you.

Check their blog. If it's legit, they probably mention it there. VB had a similar problem last month didn't it?

This doesn't affect me at all since I'm having a sales delay at ME.

Well, I just got my Paypal payment so it has to be a spam email.  I got paid the "next day"not in 3-4 weeks due to a technical issue.  Yay. Blog says nothing either, so issue solved

Did you check if that link to the Motion Elements website is actually taking you there and not re-routing you to a fake Motion Elements phishing page?

Is this your first payout at ME?

Hi MotionElements,

I'll continue uploading once you have fixed your technical issues with Paypal.

I got the same email, but from Mark Sun's address. [email protected]
I have not received payment from May yet. It was only 1 sale, but still, I don't like this.

Someone made a sale at ME? Wow!

I did account at Skrill, I changed the payment method in my account,
and after 10 minutes I got money.

But the transfer of money to bank account costs 3.95 Euro.

I got paid on the 15th, via Paypal.

I haven't gotten a sale in a long time, so not too worried about getting paid.  In fact I may leave ME to you folks. Too much work for the thin returns. My content is not "Asian Inspired" anyway.
