When did you make your first payout?

United States
March 3, 2009 9:50pm CST
What was your number on myLot when you made your first payout? For members who have been here longer, do you think it was easier or harder to make payout when you first joined? My estimate is that a decent post can earn a couple cents, so it should take about 500 to make it to payout. Does that sound accurate? I just responded to a friend who had recently made it to 500 on myLot and it got me thinking about what this means for different members. So tell me, where were you on the myLot scale when you first earned payout? What were some big myLot milestones for you??

i didn't reach my payout yet. i think, we should have some active referral to reach the payout quicker. about your earn per post, i don't know actually. i havn't reach $2 yet. so my earning is quite less than my discussion. lets see, whether can i make some decent discussions so that will increase my earning :) . hi, do u only use mylot to earn. i have some more sites to make good earning, specially 'ciao'. that give very quick money. if u didn't join there, please join from my profile. hope u will love that site. that also pays through paypal. thanks...

I am not always here on my lot since I've always been busy at work, would you believe that I reach my pay first out just last February 15, and my number is not more than 500. I think, it depends on your participation. You can reach pay out even if you are less than 500. But I have proven it now myself, mylot really does give pay out. Happy mylotting.

Hi, I just reached my payout , that is yesterday. I am sure how many posts i have made, must be around 500+, and i have no referrals at all. I am sure that if i had worked harder i could have reached payout much earlier , in December itself. Anyway i can hope to get paid in March..

Wow. Now I really wonder how they pay out. I don't have any referrals either but I have twice as many posts and I have 4 pages of best responses yet I still haven't made payout (I'm only 3 cents short) but still. Oh well. I'm not here for the money anyway, but it does seem rather strange to me.

Responses are paid based on quality, so a longer, more substantive and helpful post will most likely earn you more than a short, off-topic post. Good luck!

i am new to mylot , now I couldn't start my new thread(Forum). But I know that mylot is paying through Paypal. So whenever the account balance reaches $10 u can request for payout

At my old Mylot account, I was three dollars short of the payout. At the time, I deleted my account and thought quantity posts where better then quality. I believe I had around 300 to 500 posts at the time. I really can't remember. This time around now, I have not made payout (but I sure hope so by the end of the month) and I'm doing quality posts rather then just doing quantity posts. To me, it is simply much better that way. Pretty soon (not that much soon though), I'll have my 100th post coming up. Next up is my 70th post and I'm quite excited about that. I'm never going to delete my account on here again =).

I don't remember where I was when I first made payout but I think that I wasn't at 500 yet. I don't know for sure though, so I don't want to say either way. I think that it takes less then 100 to make payout for some, I think on some occasions it didn't take me that many posts to make payout, but then again I don't know for sure. I've been on and off mylot, and sometimes I'm more active then others. My fiance and I have been busy planning, so that has cut a lot into our mylot money making time. We're stressed to the hilt, but then again we're not! lol! The big mylot milestones? When I first got to 500, then 1000. Ofcourse, the first payout was a milestone too. I'm trying to get the most payout in my record of payouts, but I haven't reached that yet I don't think.

I am new to the site and still haven't made a payout. It'll be awhile for me because I use the site once or twice a week.

Hi, Im still new here on mylot and haven't got much money ,but i hope that will keep my self active on mylot and will be able to earn some bucks. It is true that you can earn some extra by referrals easily. You have to promote mylot and bring referrals to this site and will soon see the difference. happy mylotting. Cheers

I think i have made my $10.82 of having a posting score of 700 plus. Most of my posts were deleted , i was posting more than 700, since i was new here, i was responding to questions of only one single sentence or one liner as we call it. Now that i have learned the rules and has guided by most of myLotters, keep away from forums that disobey the mylot rules so that your post will not be deleted. I think i have 10 to 15 deleted posts here. But i did not regret it, i just do my work everyday to fill up every possible answer i can give to Mylot user. The more i can relate to certain posts, that's where i answer here. If you reach your 500th posts, you can enjoy the privilege of copy paste command but to certain limitations of course.

I have not yet made my minimum pay out but i am close to it.Well your pay out depends upon your quality of posts.I have seen many members whose posts was just 300+ and they got their minimum pay out.It also depends on how many active referrals you have.Quality and description are the basic ingredients of successful posts.

On my previous account I was around the 500 to 600 mark. I had been paid twice by mylot. I am crossing my fingers to get my 3rd payment from that account. It is only active to receive payment, but I can't post on that account. So have I confuse you? If yes, I'll explain. In february, my original account was set to inactive along with many others. When I ask mylot to look into it, I told them what I would like to do. They found through no fault of mine the account was set to inactive. They reinstated it so that I could receive payment. Then set the account so that I could not earn any more money on that account as I wanted to use this one. So now I am waiting on my 3rd payment. If I get it, I certainly will give the staff full credit where it is deserved. Their efforts on what they have done will be fully acknowledged by me. Let me tell you that each person is different. Responses are different. So no one really knows how mylot pays. Not only that referrals do play a part in earnings too. I know of some one who had less than that 100 and still reached payout. That is only because of active referrals.

I think my first payout came around my 650th post. But now I'm zeroing in my 3rd payout and I'm still less than 1,500...so I guess 500 posts is a fair number. Remember, the quality of the posts are worth more than the quantity. Getting to 1,000 posts was my biggest milestone, probably until my 1,500...but actually, the friendships that I've made here, the info that my myLot friends and I share mean more than the payouts and milestones. MyLot is fun and getting to payout is the icing on the cake! Take care and good luck on your way to your first payout!

I could not tell you what my discussion points were when I finally made it to my first payout. I'm thinking it was definitely less than 1000 points. I know I made it the first money I was actually active on myLot, but I worked hard that month. The next two months, I didn't make it because I was busy with life in general, but I'm working hard now. If anything I'll make payout for March. I'm already over my payout minimum.
