First Payment is the hardest to get??

United Kingdom
May 22, 2010 9:01am CST
Okay,so it has been 10 months since I joined My Lot and I am still waiting for my first payment.Of course,its not My Lot's fault and it is like this because I never found enough time to devote to this wonderful site..:P..During my various discussions here,a lot of people told me that the first payment is the hardest to get after which it becomes a smooth ride.I want all you My Lot veterans to answer this question.Is this true?Do successive payments become easier to get??Does it really happen or is it just experienced psychologically??

It's a simple answer - if you are active you earn. If you are not you don't. I guess that once you are certain that myLot pay you then you are more willing to be active so in that sense it might become easier. It is possible to reach payout every month. There are many ways to earn - discussing, using the search feature and the tasks and with active referalls. Even a new user can make it within their first month, it is entirely up to each one of us how much we are active.

money house - money house which is made of money no money no house
i have joined mylot a year back and believe me i was soo active and reached $5 in no time then i left mylot because i move to other social networks. It is very hard to get your first payment; after getting that you will have a trust relationship with it and don't worry a lot for your payments :) that's the only reason it seems to you that only first payment is hard rest are good

I know what you mean. It seemed like it took an absolute age for me to get my first payment. I find that I don't earn as much as I could here on mylot because I have a tendency to take really long breaks from the site every few months, and completely forget about mylot altogether.

hi yeah i agree with you that first payment is the hardest-since u are still learning to earn and arent much familiar with the nuances, but at the same time u also have an extra amount of zeal when to are trying to reach ur first payment-so u tend to push a little harder.

Hello friend!! It is not as difficult as you are considering. If you have made just 140 in ten months then how you can expect payment... I am at 220 and have already reached half way of payment and surely I will make it this month... If you will actively participate here then of course you can reach your payout every month... Many people are there who are making good money here... If you think that you can't reach first payment then you can't... yes psychological affect and same also applies for further payments... So, clear your mind my friend and you will reach your goal... Just continue making quality posts... I am also working for my first payment yet... Have nice time!! Happy myLotting!!

I think of mylot as a social network which allows users to participate in social conversation on various topics it serves as a medium for use to express our views without facing criticism. The payment thing is just kind of a bonus just enjoy urself and have fun

Well, I cannot say if everything will be easier after the first payment because I'm a few dollars short of getting my first one. Just like you, I don't get to have more than enough time to do Mylotting. I only do this when time permits me to do so. Been a member for more than 3 months I guess and I look forward to claiming my reward before the month ends. I hope you are right when you say that everything will be easier after the first payment. I look forward to it.

mmh in reality 10 month to reach your first payment is really much...i don't remember how much time i got my first payment here but it was really less than your time!!Surely mylot activity is hard especially when you want improve it so much as regards daily posts or earnings as well!! i wish you can reach your first payment soon..i think when you take the right time to post earnings will come daily!!

I'm struggling to reach $10 as well. I've been on this site for around a month right now and I've only made $2.17. I would be able to make more money if I didn't have so many real life commitments , then I'd be able to devote my whole time to talking on MYlot. If , I'm struggling to reach $10 then how is it going to be easier to make money after I've reached the payout? That doesn't make any sense .

I think it depends on how much you post here. If you are active to post here, meanwhile you can finish some tasks in Mylot, then you can reach the minimum payout sooner. But I have to say that it is not easy to earn more from Mylot. Now I have to spend at least three months to reach USD10. Good luck! I love China

Don't give up nitinshukla. Yes at first it takes a while, but just sit back and enjoy yourself. Make discussions interesting and make sure you make friends, the more friend you have, the more posts you have to reply to. Then before you know it you will get a payout..I started getting them every 2 months and then a few months later I was getting a payout every month..

It had not been too hard for me to get my first pay out here. I was active that time and I really make my discussions useful and informative. I even did not know that time that the longer and the elaborate your post is, the faster your earnings will become. My friend who had introduced mylot to me just told it to me when I told him about my earnings. That time he already have more than 700 post but is still not getting his first earnings.He said that it was like that because he posted shorter discussions only. Maybe it is like 2 to 3 lines only of which I am not certain of. I got my first earnings when my post reach 200, that was just an estimate.I just find it hard to reach my minimum earnings here when I am not active. For example, I let days pass by without participating to any discussions here. I can say that even you start a discussion but still do not reply on it, your earnings will be slow also.I experienced that during my second pay out here because I was so inactive that time.

I think the reason why the first payment here in MyLot is the hardest to get is, as a newbie here, you are not yet maximizing the use of this website. Maybe you are only focused on participating in the discussion and not yet using MyLot Search Engine or Tasks. That happened to me before. It took me almost 5 months to reach my first payment. But right after I received my first payment, I discovered that I am not maximizing the use of this website. I discovered you can double what you're getting from the discussion by using MyLot search engine whenever you are looking for something on the web. Just do some 10 to 15 searches a day, or more, and you will receive MyLot Search Engine Cash Reward, additional to what you've already earned from the discussion. Now, the question is, are you maximizing the use of this website?

Yeah, it gets easier. IT took me a long time to get the first payout. I also figured out a little system so I am getting payout more often. IT takes some time on mylot but you can get payout every month or at least every other month. I actually shoot for about every other month. That way when I goof off some and don't reach my goals it's no big deal. Like this part of the month I only have a couple of dollars. But now I step up and work hard to make as much as I can by the end of the month without going over the 10 dollar payout. Then next month I will work hard to get the amount as up as far as possible.

Well of course you still need to work hard for the next pays. Having referrals' helpful as well...so you might wanna spread the word about myLot and get some referrals working for ya.

We are so similar. I have also been on this website for about 10 months also. But i realize you have to e really active if you want to reach that payout. Not even now i have not get my first payment. But now I prefer to just think of mylot as just a playground and have some fun once in a while. And now i notice my money is increasing more dramatically. In no time I will reach it. Don't think of it has just earning money, think of it has making friends and conversing about freends. Hope what i said help. And remember.................... have fun! :-D

You have only 140 responses to peoples posts and you have been here for 10 months? You really need to make yourself a bit more active, I can see why it has taken you so very long. You really need to start doing more responses to other peoples posts, that way you can make more money. Also make sure to add as much content as possible in each response. Short one liners don't pay.
