There's nothing wrong with it, but "No, I haven't been paid yet" or simply "No, not yet" would be more common responses.

Would you mind telling me why did you use would in that sentence?

Simply idiomatic! In this context, it means the same as "I agree", which I should probably use on this forum in future.
