I sure seem to be having problems getting my money out of TradeHill into OKPAY. Sure seemed easier getting it in to TradeHill than getting it out. Once I sold a portion of my btc for USD, I read elsewhere I can get a check sent me, but that doesn't come up on TradeHill, just Paxum or OKPAY.
So I opened an account on OKPAY, and tried to get my money sent there--around $1,000--and it just doesn't seem to be happening. After 24 hours had passed, I sent them both emails asking what was up. Haven't heard anything. And once my money is in OKPAY--assuming, of course, that eventually it will get there--what kind of hoops do I need to jump through to get my US dollars out of there? Do I have to verify my identity which seems a serious pain?
It's nice that I finally was able to make a few bucks with bitcoins, but for them to be viable, it shouldn't be so difficult to obtain my own money in dollars back into my possession.
