I was nearing $15 yesterday so I posted at least around 70 good replies today only to find out my earnings instead of going up, has dropped to $13.+. Is there any reason behind this? I wish Mylot administrators would give us an explanation about this but I haven't encountered any answers even in their FAQ section. I wish Mylot would be more detailed to discuss how their system works. I'm pretty sure a lot of members have experienced their earnings downfall. Do any of you have any idea why this happens? Tax? Hidden charges? Anything?! Also, I'd like to ask if I just set my earnings quota to $10 and I manage to earn more than $10 per month like $17, will I be able to collect the entire $17? Or just the $10 and the rest will be carried over for the next month? Thanks. I just find it so frustrating that I lost $2 within 24 hours.

I think an explanation is needed from myLot as I heard many users complaining about the same issue. As for your question, I think you can take all $17, although, I'm not sure as I didn't reach the minimum amount yet.

thanks for your reply. Mylot has a lot of issues that they fail to explain like the minimum quota alone. I don't know if I'm wasting my time to just pass the minimum quota or just leave it at that?!

I think they do make some adjustments at some time.

What kind of adjustments. I think it's pretty awful that they don't alert the members first before they do the actual adjustments. It's also unfair to the members because what's the use of having a side menu with your earnings displayed only to have it edited in some point in time without your knowledge. That's almost cheating even if it is Mylot's website. Even service companies offer a notice or warning first before they do anything.

I would email the administrators on here and see why my earnings down so much. I have lost a few cents here and there and figure that it is a discussion that has been pulled off for some reason, but if I lost that much money,I would have to have an explanation. I do believe that you get the whole $17. I don't think that you can choose it,as I think whatever you have on the cutoff date is how much they send you if it is over the minimum that you have set. I leave mine set for $10 as I figure it is a nice amount to have to earn on here and I can usually do it in a month.

I think MyLot should give us an alert on how they compute our earnings and all the reasons why our earnings are dropping to avoid confusions on our side. Their faq about earnings is to general.
