# 34 I’ve been watching my bank since I logged in today. It’s so close I could feel it rolling over the $5 threshold at any second… And sure enough, there it is with the latest update! So today, I’m officially eligible for August 2016 payment – I have reached the minimum amount of $5... The amount of payment I will receive is whatever my balance will be by midnight CST on August 31st 2016 – that is myLot time and that will already be well into September 1st on my end... I will receive my August 2016 payment on or before September 15th 2016. Between midnight CST on August 31st and whatever the payday will be, my bank will show August 2016 payout amount plus whatever I earn in September thus far. I’ve read comments around some confusion that myLot is not paying the whole amount earned. No, it’s not like that at all. MyLot always pays what we earn in full. If we don’t reach the $5 minimum by midnight CST on end of month, don’t despair, the balance will be carried over to the next month and not a single penny will be missing. And whatever the balance is in the current month, will be paid on or before the 15th of the next month. If you’d like to, you can always check the breakdown of your earnings vs payments on your Earnings Summary pages – I cannot expect any more transparent report than what is shown there...

Well done on reaching the minimum so soon. That is great. With luck you'll get a lot more yet.

Hmm... I'm afraid it's not as 'soon' as it seems... I had half of that carried over from July...

@sishy7 Oh, I didn't realise. At first I thought maybe you thought the pay period was to the middle of the month.

Seeing how your discussions are doing and how active you are I won't be surprised if you even reach $10 by end of month...

@sishy7 Oh no . That's because i come here intermittently whenever i am at the office and have no more works and is still waiting for some . But maybe if i am here for more than 5 hours i am sure i can reach $20 or more in a month's time .

It does feel good to reach $5, then you know you will get paid this month.

Exactly! The opposite of that feeling would probably be reaching 4.9999 by midnight CST on end of month...

I'm with you and understand- but they will not pay more than $5.00 per month, will they? if you go over that amount- it will just go to the next month?

They will pay whatever the balance in our bank is by midnight CST on the last day of the month as long as it is at least $5. If it is less than $5, then the balance will be carried over to the next month. If it is more than $5, then they will pay the whole amount earned up to the midnight CST/end of month deadline.

@sishy7 Very well explained. Well, right now I am like you and over $5. So the news to me is that I will get the full amount earned by August 31st- which in this case will be about $6.50--yay!

We have about 2 weeks before end of month, so it's possible that you will reach minimum payout amount or at least will be very close to it...

Thanks you! It took me 2 months... I earned half of it in July... August has been better - so maybe it was more like 1.5 months since it was 2 weeks ago that I reached it...

Good job, keep it up and you'll have more then $5 before the end of the month. I'm only just below $1 I haven't been on very much this month. I've been busy taking care of little ones. But maybe next month If i don't make it this month. You never know I could just busted it all out in a few days.

I'm glad you've made the minimum. However, we don't receive everything up to the payout date in September. Only what we earned from first to last day of the month. There's no Plus. The plus is future earnings.

Exactly! What shows in our bank at the top right hand corner is everything up to the payout date though. Some people wonder why after payday the bank does not go down to zero. They wonder why they are only paid partially with the balance left in the bank instead of being paid the whole amount that was there.

@sishy7 They are - and I don't like it! I heard it has something to do with the standardized testing preparations - that this gives them more time for students be ready for it . I read recently that some of the people upstairs in the district are going to fight for school starting after Labor Day again . . . that would be great!!
