I know there is the opposite of the decimal vs. fraction in payment stipulation on the PTC sites vs. money balance , but seems odd - thought I had it but now I have to ask... In words.... When it is payment to click on a link, what is: $.0025 - is this one fouth of one hundredth? one fourth a cent? $.01 - is this one/one hundredth of a cent? or 1 cent? I have see it both ways but surely it can't be. And what is one cent in the PTC language? However, when it is stating your account balance... What is... $.0800 - eight cents or eigth one hundredths? $25 - is this twenty five cents or 1/4 cent? Thanks!

It is acutally quite easy to figure out. .0025 is 1/4 of a penny and .01 can be one penny or it could be 1/100 of a penny which means you have to read 100 emails to get one panny. Make sure when you are reading the amount that it makes sense to you what you are being paid. If you look at your balance it will be more specific in saying how much money you have accumilated. It depends on the site you are working on, as to how they state it. I think they try to be sneaky so that they get lots more members signing up. Some sites will say they pay .1 cents and that usually means 1/10 of a cent but some sites it only means they pay you 1/100 of a cent for it. I work on the same sites all of the time and I know how much they pay me so I don't even pay attention to how much they say they pay me. I just know. So I guess it isn't quite so easy to figure out after all, as I stated in the beginning of this response.

Thanks so much. I must sound like a nucklehead (been watching all the re-runs of Gomer Pyle lately...kind of rubbing off!) to you guys! Seems so easy to me now I wonder what the heck I was thinking!
