We may earn money or products from some of the companies mentioned in this post.

It is not always easy to find work at home companies that pay their remote workers by check.  In fact, many employers prefer to send payment directly to your PayPal account.  You can see a list of sites that pay via PayPal by reading this post here.  Not only does this save the company expenses from having to get payroll to use paper to send out checks but it also eliminates the delays that come with mail delivery and even lost or stolen checks.  Although many people prefer to get their cash via PayPal, there are a lot of home agents that would prefer and even welcome the chance to receive a paper check.

If you are one of those people, you trying to make money online, it may surprised to find out that there are more companies that you think that still pay by check.  I even like and sometimes prefer to get a check in the mail too. There is something about going to your mailbox and seeing your name on a check to deposit it or get cash it that never gets old.  Some of my readers, still don’t have a PayPal account or it is not verified so that check method is one of their few options for receiving payment.

Hopefully you will find this list refreshing and even apply to some of these work at home jobs that pay by check even in 2017!
