this is my 27th post and i havent even gotten $.01 yet. Is this normal or might I be doing something wrong? How many posts did you have to make before you started earning anything? Or, does it show up later or something? i mean, I know the pay rate is SLOOOW and depends on your activity, but i thought I would at least have one cent by now. haha.

hi aquarina, Well the earnings here in my lot is not easy as you think. I requires a lot of hard work and a lot of time responding different discussion with quality post. Start a discussion with sense that can attract mylotters to response, the more responses the more earning you get. but the earning you get here to small. I suggest not to think about more on the earnings for you may get disappionted for it is to sloooooow to move. Just Make friends , learn and injoy everything you do here for it matters most.Think earning as a bonus. Happy mylotting.

Hi aquarina and welcome to mylot! Give it another 24 hours and you should see something show up. I am not sure exactly how they calculate earnings from a time/activity perspective but I am sure that this time tomorrow you will see results.

If its been way over 24 hrs. maybe you should see if there is a way to contact them and ask. Its possible there is a problem with your account. Since I'm new I don't know if you can contact them with issues, but its worth looking into (not really money wise, mainly out of curiosity).

Yes I agree that Mylot is slow (very slow, in fact) but still, I received my first cent, 24 hours after putting second post. However, the pay rate varies many time depending upon the length and quality of posts.

Well, how long have you been a member here, and how many New posts, or discussions are you responding back to a day? I know for me, I usually do not really see much in earnings unless I post back to at least 10 New discussions a day. I know sometimes that starting a New discussion like this from time to time, can help as well. If you are wondering how some of us make more $$ on here a day, I found that if you can start at least 1-2 New discussions and respond back to at least 20-30 New discussions a day, you should have no problem usually being able to reach the $10 a month payout. Many of us choose to do a lot more than this as well. Also when posting back to others discussions, the best rule of thumb, is stick to the topic at hand, and post back with at least 4 lines as well. Hope this is of some help for you, and Welcome to myLot. Hope you will choose to continue to be active in here.

The posts that you are making today will not be paid into your account until tomorrow morning when they post new earnings. I usually see my earnings around 10 am so depending on where you are is what time you will see earnings. Keep working on here and you will be fine with earnings. This is a fun site and there is money to be made if you try.

Earnings are only updated once a day. Where I live they are updated around 8 am usually. I am in a different time zone than you, so yours will probably update around 7am.
