Do I have to click somewhere on myLot to request payment? Or is it automatic?

Hello. I know this is probably a stupid question, but do I have to click somewhere to request payment, or will it occur automatically if I have met the minimum payment amount that I selected (on the last day of the month)? I looked on the "earnings" page on myLot but didn't see anywhere to click to request payment, even though it does say that I met minimum payment requirement for June. Thanks for your help in this matter.

You need not make any request, the moment you reach your pay out limit, you will be informed about your payment by the 15th of the succeeding month. It is automatic, you need not worry.

Yes, I can say that I am an experienced mylotter here, because I have been here for more than one and a half years. Happy mylotting to you.

You will get paid in July. Something on your earnings page should say something about that. Like on or around the 15 unless you haven't gotten a paypall account and let Mylot know about it. Read way down at the bottom of the page. There is usually more there, take care and thanks.

Hi writersedge. Yes, many myLotters have responded to this discussion and informed me that I will automatically be paid by the 15th of the following month. That is, if I reach minimum payout by the last day of the prior month. So, I am all set up, including the PayPal account, which I've actually had for years. Thanks for the heads up. Way down at the bottom of the earnings page, it says I have earned enough in June for a payout (but didn't say it would automatically be there, hence this discussion). So, thank you again, writersedge, for your helpful response.

So they must have stopped putting, "You will receive payment before or on ________________(Date, like July 15). That was right after the message you just wrote, that's too bad, that's how I knew the first time when to expect it in my paypall account, oh well.

No problem PearlGrace! I am answering straight from email notification so you have probably been answered many times already! Mylot will automatically make payment into your paypal account around the middle of the month as long as you have filled in your paypal details! Congrats on your first payout! xxx

As long as you have your amount set to 10.00 it will go to your paypal account automatically. They haven't sent them out yet, or at least I haven't got mine. I think the holiday weekend probably thru them off. Although it's not the 15th yet which is the deadline.

Hello sunnflr. Thank you for responding in such a timely fashion to my myLot question. This will be my first payout, so I am very excited. I do really read those FAQs, I just can't remember anything I read! Hope that's not a senior moment...

I know exactly how that feels. I can read everything, but if it's something I really need to remember I have to refer back to it WHILE I'm doing whatever it is that I need it for...if that made sense..lol. Otherwise, I'll get something wrong.

hi friend, what you need to do is set the minimum withdraw limit then mylot will automatically transfer amount to your paypal account you have mentioned in your account section.if you have not done that till now pl do it before 29th of the month so that you will get paid next month if you have sufficient payout amount.

Hi moneymint18. Thanks for your input on this. So many kind mylotters responded to my discussion. I now know to select the minimum I want and that I will be automatically paid if I'm over that (in my case, $10). Also, that I must have earned over that amount by the last day of the month, in order to be paid the next month by myLot. I appreciate your response.

I think if you set a minimum payout, it will just show automatically, they will inform you!

Hi academic2. Yes, I have since found out that myLot's payout occurs automatically as long as you are on PayPal and have informed myLot about it and you have met the minimum requirement and selected the amount. In fact, I just checked and I did, in fact, get paid. Thanks for responding.

well it is automatic at the end of each month, minimum payment that you specified, im pretty sure it says that in a number of places in the FAQ.

Thank you LadyAbbox for your response. I couldn't find whether it was automatic or whether it had to be requested. But, a number of myLotters have been kind enough to inform me on this one. Including you, and I do appreciate it. Thank you very much for your response.

Thanks for asking a question that I was wondering about. There are a lot of helpful people at mylot. It's a really nice place to be. I'm looking forward to my first payment soon, but alas, not this month.

Hang in there, cvrmom. You will make it to that first payout, just like I did. It took me 10 months to get there, but I only worked hard on it the last 6 weeks before I reached payout. Plus, you already have all the info you need. Take care. PearlGrace

If you have your information in the back payout area with your Paypal information, and your Paypal account set up with your information to receive payments to it, then you should be receiving the $10 payout into your paypal account any day now and between the 15th. And don't it feel Good to know you can earn $$ online for just responding back to someone else's opinions?

It should be automatcic. Once you reach your minimum payout the'll send it to you. Just give them some time. If you dont get it by the 15 then you ll have a problem. But, as for now dont worry about it.

When you reach minimum payout of $10, the money will be deposited into your Paypal account. The cutoff date is the last day of the month. Payout is between the first and fifteenth of the month.

Hi beautyqueen26. Thank you for this information about myLot's manner of payount. I think I can commit this information to my memory: last date of month, if I have made payout, that's the amount I will get. It will be paid into my PayPal account by the 15th of the following month. Oh, and I did check $10 as my minimum payout. Thanks again and take care.
