How long did it take you to make your first payout? I have been on for three weeks posting like crazy and I'm nowhere near it! I hope I will make payout next month, but right now I am thinking that I have so far to go that I will never make it! It is so disheartening. When I first joined mylot I felt that I would make it easily. I guess I have to be more active, I haven't been on every day but I have spent two hour stretches on here when I have time. I am enjoying mylot quite a bit but I am disappointing that I didn't make payout. Well, maybe next time?

I know that it can be a bit disheartening when I don't make as much as I had hoped to, but I have made payout except for I believe maybe a two month stretch when issues got in the way and I was not able to come on mylot because of them.

It took me 6 months to make my first payout, and I decided to try to post more frequently to reach the next payout sooner. Well, I am starting month number 5 tomorrow, and I don't know if I'll make it by the end of May! I'm not worried about it though, it's not that much anyway, and if I did this for money, it wouldn't be fun anymore. Enjoy your postings and good luck in reaching your goal.

It took me from September 18th to I think some time in December before I made my first payout. It's taken me about as long to reach my second payout, which I got just a few days ago. And that was primarily thanks to the tasks. I wouldn't worry about not making payout. But I guess that's because I haven't been really active some days. As you said, you've only been here for three weeks. Have you been posting as long responses as you can? Mylot is a very good example of "quality over quantity" when it comes to how much you earn. The longer your stuff or whatever, the more you'll earn from it. But you probably know that though.

Ok first look and see what your pay out is set out. You can set it for as low as 10$ that is what I have mine set at I either make payment every month or every other month. It just depends .. Second the amount you get is based on quality not quantity. Third don't get discouraged. I have always told anyone who has joined under me that they are not going to get rich on this site that to look at this as more of a fun social site where you get to debate your views with others. LOL!!!!

i'm not... i didn't make payout so many times here but i just take it easy and try to enjoy myself here... just relax, enjoy yourself and be happy... don't pressurise yourself... just treat the earnings from here as a bonus and don't push yourself too hard... it's not worth it to be so pressurised just because not reaching payout... take care and have a nice day...

When i was new here i had able to reach payout. I was active that time and was kind of addicted posting here so maybe that's makes me reach the payout. Well i guess its just a quality response that is needed even if you just post or participate few discussion only. I think you just have to be motivated and active so you will reach the payout. Don't worry even if you don't reach payout this month, your work will still be rewarded once you get your payout next month. My advice would be post and post and make sure you respond on quality discussion, upload picture or grab task it really help. happy mylotting!

I don't get depressed about things like that. I know that if Ihave time and I am active I will reach it. If I have other things to do then I will not be here and I will not reach it - simple as that and nothing can change that. I reached payout in the middle of the month. Iknew Iwas going to be away for a week and was on a lot before I left and I'm fine again this month too. You said 'I have been on for three weeks posting like crazy' If you post like crazy but yours are not quality postings and are in the wrong places (on discussions that will be deleted) you will not reach it. I find that to reach payout you must be having FUN and the rest follows with no 'hard work'. Better luck next month!

You know ,its been a year when I reached my payout. Because I am not on payout here, but I do admit I was about for the pay out when I joined but when I had seen the movement of my activities I know that I can't reach a minimun payout for a month. Yes there is always a next time. Try to make a quality discussion and you can also visit mylot task, so many are saying they achieved pay out easily with the help of mylot task.

I'm not making pay out for many months already since I joined but am not depressed about it. I am not worried either because I know I will get there in time. Am just here for enjoyment but it is also a good compensation when we reach pay out while we are enjoying.

I've just joined this site; so if anything, you've just made my faith go down a little bit..just kidding, kind of haha. Oh well, it'll probably be a while before I get a payment either.

Don't get depressed, me I have my first pay out on my second and a half month. Every earning I see with my everyday effort inspired me to go on. What is diappointing is though Mylot paid me already still not reflected at paypal and the latter claimed they didn't received mylot's payment. Still am not depressed I just contiue mylotting and am receiving my 2nd payout on or before May 15. Should I was affected I won't be reaching my 2nd payout. Am just hoping my first payout problem will be resolved and there would be no more hassle with my 2nd. So just go on and without knowing you're already reaching the payout.

I haven't made payout in here yet either, but I am not worried about i one bit. I do what I can and that is all I can do, and besides I have other sites to do s well as this one, so I have to divide my time between them all. It really doesn't make sense to worry about it as you can only do so much a day. I won't make mine until june or after, but that is ok. Good luck to you and I hope it works out.

the first month i was here, i made payout in the month, but usually it takes me at least two months or even 3 months to make payout. it just depends on how busy i am and how much time i can spend on mylot. dont despair, you will make it.

I barely ever make pay out anymore. I am just not all that active here anymore, although I am trying to be more now. Sometimes it seems like I make tons of posts and don't seem to earn much. I can be discouraging which is why I am not posting for the earning so much as just the fun of posting. Better Luck to you next month.

Well, I am a little disappointed that I've not been able to reach payout, but I wouldn't say that I'm depressed about it. I really wouldn't say that I'm depressed about this.

I am a bit sad that I will not get paid for this month but it is my fault after all as I've been too busy with life and school work to really come here to earn some money. So, it's to be expected that I'm not going to get paid this month. However, it will be here for me to get paid next month so I am not that worried about it. When I first started here, I came in during the middle of the month. I was here so much during those first few weeks that it only took me about 3 weeks to get paid. It was nice getting paid for coming here too. I was amazed that they actually paid me!
