What happens with myLot-earnings when you forgot to confirm the Paypal-Email?

Hello myLotters, before the end of January i got accidently banned from myLot. In this time i achieved the payment limit of 10 $. After myLot re-instated my account in the first week of February, i forgot to watch for the confirmation of the Paypal-Email because i did this already in January. On 13th of February they wrote (in the earning section) that the Payment will be transferred to Paypal. It's shown up in the payment history. But as i haven't had the E-Mail it seems that the money is gone. [b]Does anyone had the same situation in myLot. Forgot to confirm the Paypal-Email as a payment was pending? Will this payment be transferred when you confirm your Paypal-Email or is the payment gone?[/b]

Hi cornyman! I noticed you were missing. I confirmed my Paypal address as soon as I joined and have always received payment when it was due with no problens at all. If the amount no longer is showing in your 'earnings' but you have not received it in your Paypal account then I suggest you contact myLot through the 'contact' link and explain to them what has happened asking for clarification. I cannot help you other than suggest you do this, sorry.

i agree with you mysdianit that it is best for us to make clarifications with mylot admin in problems arising like this one our friend is currently encountering. our friend here must be confused since he just went through that sad experience.

Oh yes confused indeed and I fear that is also the reason we are not seeing him as active as before too

Hey there! I was indeed thinking that the reason could well be that you were busy as your baby had arrived but I didn't like to mention it. Congrats to you all and I hope things will settle down quickly although you must realise you will now definately get less time here than before (even if you computer does get fixed) I hope also that when we get nearer the 15th youwill also that problem sort itself out too. Good luck on both counts cornyman!

hello, cornyman. sad to know about that banning incident wherein you got involved. it is good that you are back with us. what did they say was the reason for the ban? oh my, no one will ever want anything like that to be happening to him. as for me, i submitted my paypal account just for once. it was early january this year. i only came back mylotting last december after having been away for a little over two years. always, they will ask us for our account only once. then the succeeding payments will just proceed without asking of that again. i believe that the payment proceeded as usual for you, too. we don't just lose our earnings. however, i don't know if they scrap payments for those ones who get banned. personally, i think that it is best to get some clarifications with mylot admin on this. if they didn't pay you then, they will be paying you now since you have been back with activities in the community again.

cornyman, I think it would be only right to check if you had submitted your PayPal account to the administrators from your "Payment Information" here in myLot. You can find this by going to your "Preferences" and once you are there select "Payment Information". If the PayPal ID is not there you can always submit it and remembering to reconfirm your submission. Now, I am sure you will be able to see your earnings at the top and if the amount is the same as before, it means the administration has not effected payment. However, if the earnings are deemed to be different which means that remittance had been effected, which I find it impossible if there is no PayPal ID in the Payment Information. Then you will need to check with the myLot administrators where they had remunerated to and I am sure there will be a better answer than all of us trying to second guess here. I hope that you would be able to verify and that the payment of your earnings be credited to your correct account. Cheers.

Thank you Cornyman. Your tip made me go and check. Sure enough, I needed to confirm my PayPal email. Let's hope that, come the 15th, everything will be OK now.

I'm sorry but I am kind of new here and I have not reached a payout yet. I think I have a paypal account but I have not made enough yet to have anything in it..I wish you luck on getting your money reinstated.

I would contact Paypal and see what can be done about verifying the e-mail now. The earnings aren't gone, but they might as well be. They are sitting in that account gathering dust until you can do something about it. But I would call them and see if you can transfer it to another account or something. In all my dealings with Paypal, they have been very helpful when I contacted them through phone.

Hello my friend cornyman Ji, If you could get your account re-insituted after its in-activeness, you have to inform myLot admin only. I think, it should be pending somewhere as a sedentry account. may God bless you and have great time.

This had not happened to me as i'm using paypal ever since i started mylotting.. But when mylot announced using paypal for processing of payment, they already stated that one should change to using that, if not, all earnings will be returned to their accounts.. Thus in this case, your earnings should be returned to u instead.. But then again, this is the 2nd time it happened to u, then maybe your earnings might have been forfeited or gone..

Well, I had about 9$ racked up. I never confirmed my paypal email, and didn't log in for a couple months. I then had 0.00$. I know, what a great site to see. I say go ahead and confirm your paypal, if it goes through and you get it, or if you don't get your payment, then you'll get your answer. You should confirm your paypal anyways.

Hi cornyman! I haven't encountered such problem before and I am not sure what to advice you my friend on this. Maybe, you can try confirming your paypal email and see what will happen. If the payment got lost, maybe you can write to paypal citing what had just happened and maybe they can resolve it immediately. I really hope you will get your earnings dear friend. Take care and have a great day! lovelots..faith

Hi cornyman, I don't think you have lost your money as it will be in paypal, get in touch with paypal and you well see that it is still in your account. Tamara

I had a similar problem where when I tried to confirm my email address the code that were give to me would not work so I just quit tying. No listed phone number to call. No way to salve the problem. I made a purchase, gave my billing address but told them to ship to another and that screwed some niny up. My credit card payed the bill so it was paypal screw up. gerald.brewer@yahoo.com
