Question About Earnings

As of yesterday, my earnings total was $9.89. I posted a bit yesterday and earned 5 cents. My referrals earned me 6 cents yesterday, so my total earnings for yesterday was $0.11 which makes my overall total at exactly $10.00. Now, underneath my earnings it says "You have not yet earned enough to qualify for a payment. Once you have accumulated earnings of $10.00 or more, you then will qualify for an earnings payment." Normally as soon I reach $10, it says that I've earned enough for a payment! I have never earned exactly $10 though... so maybe that's why it says I haven't earned enough? Maybe it will say I've earned enough once I've made at least $10.01 It is odd that it is worded "$10.00 or more" though... that makes it seem like if you make exactly $10 then you get a payment. Oh well, I guess it doesn't matter. There's still a couple days left this month to post so I should have no trouble at all earning more than 1 cent. Have you ever earned over $10 but it still says you haven't earned enough for a payout? Is this just an error?

I just new in here and i'm only nearing to a dollar. Maybe the description of the payout is the error.

hello, ronharold. welcome to mylot. it is good to see you around doing some activity within this community. the payout requirement for mylot is a minimum amount of ten dollars. once you have reached this amount, you are definitely qualified for payout date on the fifteenth of the following month. calculations though is for the entire month only. so our friend here has already reached the minimum earned amount requirement to qualify for payout. i would like you to know though, that even if you have a perfect 10.00 earned by the end of february, you might be short by a few cents once they have done the adjustments (i mean the mylot admin, they do earning adjustments).

I have yet to earn $10 on the dot before. So this is really something new to me. I guess the coding that mylot did was to check for figures $10. That is why the earnings on the dot is not registered as qualifiying for the payout. Either that or there is some percentage of earning that is recorded on the backend, but on the front where you see it, you see the rounded up figure? Like for example, your earning could actually be $9.9998, but the system present a $10 for you to see on the earnings page. As such, the $10 you see did not qualify for the payout just yet!

That is a good point! I never thought that the earnings might be a rounded up percentage, but that makes a lot of sense! In any case, the very next day it said I'd earned enough for a payment!

Well, if that is the case, then maybe the script for posting out the notices are not done with the huge database they are processing. So the updates got in a day late.

no, this has not happened to me yet. i believe that there is only something which has gone wrong there. usually, they say that it is due to some computer glitch. yes, this time, we might as well say that the reason for this experience that you are having right now is a computer glitch. i believe though that on the following day, whether you have more earnings coming in or none at all, the caption that your will read below will be saying 'congratulations, you have earned enough to qualify for payment'. anyway, there is nothing to worry about at all, trickiwoo. you will surely get paid for this month. that is, regardless of whether you add more earnings for the remaining days of this month or not. the admin has until the first two weeks of the month of march to correct and adjust everything. remember that payouts take place on the fifteenth of the following month yet. it is safer though that we go beyond the minimum payout of ten dollars. this is because, the admin do some adjustments on those first two weeks of the following month, month of the amounts that we have earned. thus, what we have earned might go up a little or go down a little.

Thank you! Yah, I thought it was glitch, but I just wasn't sure.

well, there will be just 2 days for me to reach the payout, and as i read here, i see that the admin makes some earning adjustements before he will pay me, so i must make more than just $10 , i think that i must make at least $11 if i want to be payed this months, isn`t so? I just hope that i`ll reach this month`s payout, becuase i really need the money. Today , there were some quite good cents taken from my earning balance. I had $9,70 when it was upgraded, and 34 minutes later, i just had $9,59. They took me 11 cents, just like that, and i can`t ask nobody why... but i think that they`ve deleted some of my posts. Anyway, i belive in mylot, and all it will be just fine.
