The myLot “Stimulus Package” has arrived!

It has finally arrived, the myLot Stimulus Package is here! You can now earn money on myLot by completing tasks that myLot and select partners have offered on myLot Tasks. The types of tasks vary as does the reward and required time frame for completion for each task. Critical information for each task can be found within the specific task. I am sure the first question that many of you have is how do I get paid. Every time a task you have completed is approved by the tasks creator your myLot account will be credited with the reward specified. Once you accumulate $10 in myLot earnings and have entered the required information to be paid, such as a valid name and PayPal account, you will be paid via normal myLot monthly payments. Probably the next question you have is how do I get started. To find available myLot Tasks first click on the tasks menu item from most any myLot page. This will take you to your myLot Tasks dashboard where you will find some high level information about tasks you have completed. Here you will also see various tabs including available, in progress, completed and returned. Click on the available tab and you will see a list of available tasks that can be sorted a variety of way. Find a task that you are qualified for and can complete within the allotted time frame and accept it. Submit the task within in the required time frame and wait for a response from the tasks creator. Once your task is approved watch the money pile up. We hope you are as excited as we are about this new feature. So what are you waiting for, get going to myLot Tasks.

These tasks will give different results according to location of the user. Does this make any difference?

Kent this question was asked here at response #69 and myLot responded: 'Tasks are posted by our partners frequently, keep checking back'

Currently the Submit button brings up a blank page. Is this just temporary? It is slightly disconcerting. I notice that the task is recorded as submitted, nevertheless.

Yes, I can see the new section, "task" among the old sections. It reminds me alot to mturk from amazon where we can do lots of jobs there. I hope there would be more jobs there which I can do better. LOL. too bad that I am not too good at it. I hope I would be able to find better job next time. I should congrat to myLot as well, because of this.

Hey Mylot, First I am so excited about this, and the anticipation was just too much! Secondly, one sentence caught my eye and I'd appreciate a little clarification. If I already have my mylot information secured through here aka the paypal stuff, do I need to re enter it to get paid for the tasks. I know you say we'll get paid normally, but the first sentence on that did confuse me! Thanks for this opportunity, I'll strive to do great work!

If you have already entered your information and it is correct then there is no need to do anything, you are good to go.

my task showed up in my earnings but has not yet been credited. Aka while I can see that it it is in my earnings for yesterday it has not yet been calculated in with regular mylot earnings. Why is this?

The task that was visible to me said that it was 25 cents and .10 cents respectively and so I cannot understand what you are saying.

I am pleased to see mylot responding to responses here! The new Tasks thing reminds me of Amazon's Mechanical Turk, except that we get to do it through our mylot accounts. Is MyLot's new program related or connected to Amazon's MTurk program? I do like the idea of being able to earn more money here at mylot and I like that it is all connected to our existing accounts. This is sure to be a boon for many users here from all over the world.

REWARD VARIES I found the reward varies from $3.00 to $0.10, expiry date in 7 days, and the number of day allotted. Kindly, guide me which criteria for me to choose as my priority. I don't understand for what does it means by "allotted" to the respective offer. Care to explain further???. Thanks in advance, myLot.

Have you accepted the task? You must accept the task before you can do anything. On your other quetsions, time allotted means how long you have to complete the task once you have accepted it. This is not the same as expiration which means how long until the task is no longer able to be accepted by anyone.

I am a little confused, and I hope you can clarify this for me. I went to the task bar and was looking at some of the writing tasks. It says to use the given topic, which is exactly the same on every task, and the keywords are too. Bit, the tags below are different. The topics all say #sub-pages# and the keywords all say #KWA# Can you explain ths to me. I am not quite sure what "KWA" is at all and it just isn't making sense. Please help.

Thanks~! This is rather conveneint for all members to make our earnings go higher.. Would it be possible that we'd go to look for tasks and there none available due to a lot of myLot members have already accomplished everything or it wouldn't run out at all..?

We are working to grow our list of partners who are creating tasks in order to avoid having no or very few tasks available at any time. However, the number of tasks available can and will change often.

I see, thanks for the clarification.. Hmmm, what other tasks would be available aside from typing an article or looking for a something in the net which the tasks would be asking myLot members to do...? Sorry if I just keep on asking one question after another.. (^_^")

seems like a nice addition to the site probably will take a little time to get used to i have done one so far is there any normal amount of time it takes for the completed task to get accepted or does that depend on each individual task?

this is a good idea but is it safe? i noticed that the first task i have is to download a bar but i don't know if it can be removed after, because i don't want to download anything unsafe or can't be removed later. does mylot check things out with the partners before assigning the tasks? i hope you do. i can't afford buying a new pc at times like this.

myLot has strict guidelines on who can become a partner. We do our best to test any product or download that a partner wants you to test and, to the best of our knowledge, they are safe.

There is a limit of 10 open tasks at any one time but as long as you keep completing the tasks you can accept more.

Braunig Lake - Just a beautiful moment of transition, while the sun sets in the sky....
I am trying to figure out exactly what kind of searches need to be performed to complete some of these tasks. I looked at the steps, and forgive me if it is my lack of understanding, but is there any way you could provide an example of what is the proper way to submit such a search. Maybe later it will sink in, I will continue with this discussion to see what results! Thank you! I love this place....:)

If you have questions about a task you have accepted it is best to ask for clarification from the task creator. Once you have accepted a task you can send mylot private messages to the task creator. Just go to messages and compose a message.
