Where I am Waiting For Payout (November 2016)

Showcase PTR: There are 18 requests in front of you. Your request for 2.15 is 14 day(s) old.

I had to cancel this request after waiting nearly two months because the program owner can no longer pay via PayPal. She erroneously told me that I could edit the request from PayPal to Payza quote copied and pasted from support ticket
you can change the payout option by going to "edit request" and enter the info for payza. It will not affect the current request.
, but when I did so I got this message:
You already have pending request. Wait untill you get it.
I notified the program owner of the message I received over 3 weeks ago and have heard nothing in reply.

Now my request says this:
There are 34 requests in front of you. Your request for 2.47 USD Payza is 16 day(s) old.

Mind you I do not blame this program owner for the actions of PayPal. PayPal has a long history of shitting on PTR owners, traffic exchange owners, and other GPT sites. A few years ago when I was still a program owner my own PayPal account was frozen for a short time.

I do however blame her for giving me incorrect information about whether or not I could edit the payout request. If you don't know the answer to a question, say that you don't know -- don't just give some answer off the top of your head when you don't know whether it's the correct answer or not.

My assumption at this point is that I will be waiting at least another two months for the Payza payout. The only reason that I am not redeeming for ads and leaving this site is that I have a lifetime upgrade at said site.

As of 12/7/2016 there is a whole new wrinkle with this situation. The program owner owns several other programs and has let the domain for one of them lapse (the domain expired on 11/19/2016, so it's been almost 3 weeks ago). Requests for support at the remaining programs have not been responded to at all, much less in a timely fashion. I personally requested banner urls be changed on November 26, 2016 and nothing has been done.

As for my payout request, here's the current status:
There are 32 requests in front of you. Your request for 2.65 USD Payza (roleysuzyq@yahoo.com) is 31 day(s) old
. In total I have now waited 3 months for this payout.
