How many posts did you require to make your first $10? I have made it around 400 but not yet made the payout. I think people generally require around 500 posts to earn their first payout. Many people have got their payouts and are experienced...I ask them...And for the second payout, and henceforth, how many posts do you require???

I think about 400-600 posts sounds about right. That is how much I got for payout. I think it will depend on quality of discussions. It might take another 400, it might not. I guess everything will depend on how active I can possibly be each day.

It is beginning to look like one of those things where you are always cutting the distance left to get somewhere in half but of course you can never get there that way. It seems the more posts I make the less money I earn. Two days ago I made about 30 posts(rating went up by that amount) and got around $0.35 credited and yesterday it was over 40 and I only got $0.25. The most I have gotten was $0.44 and that was several days ago and I know I couldn't have made more tham 15 to 20 posts that day. So I can't figure out how things work.

You noticed how sites like this never tell you how much they pay per post?

I honestly can’t remember how many post it took for me to reach payout. I think it was somewhere between 300 and 400 post, I didn’t reach payout the first month I was here but now that I have been here for a little over two month I already have over twenty one dollars in my account. When I first signed up, I must admit that I wasn’t too active. And when I was active it was posting less “quality” responses and discussions that expected. I believe I did everything wrong at that point!...lol… After seeing that I didn’t reach the first payout, that actually gave me the motivation to work harder than ever to reach it the next month. I have since paid much attention to the tips and advice I have received from other members and I have been logging on everyday, not paying any mind to the number of my post rather the quality of my discussions. Yes, sure my earnings have fluctuated from time to time, but I am grateful that I have made my target and even a little more extra along the way…hehe I believe that anyone can receive their first payout even with only 150 post, that is if they put in the time and work to produce “quality” “well descriptive” responses! From what I have seen here so far anything is possible:)

hi! i made my first $10 with 370 posts, my next $10 is 270 posts... no referrals and about 10 cents from photo uploads. right now i've earned a total of more than $33 for 750+ posts... i think one dollar from a referral and about 17 cents from photo uploads. generally, some people would require 500 posts to 1000 posts to reach pay-out of $10 if they only rely on their posts which averages 1-2 cents per post. but if they increase the quality, they earn more, and they reach pay-out sooner. i'm not that active at mylot these days, and it was pretty slow for me last month... but things are picking up. goodluck to you when you reach pay-out. :)

Like it says in the rules, you get the money depending on the substance of your replies and discussions, so I'm assuming that if you have really good ones, it doesn't take many posts to get your payout. I'm at about 160 posts and I'm at like $4 so my payout may be around 500.

I'm a newbie here in mylot i just wanna ask, does mylot only pay for the topic we posted as a new discussion on particular topic or they also credit the comments we're doing to in other topics of discussions?

It took me almost 900 posts to make my first $10. That happen at the beginning of last month. It took me a while because I guess they felt that my responses were not quality responses. I made like 1 cent for every response and discussion I posted. I also posted a couple of pictures. I got paid for some of them. But you did a great job, first payout with only 400 posts, thats great. All of your posts must be quality post. Keep up the good work.

Well, it took me 800 posts until I reached my first payout. This month it took me 750 posts to reach payout. This is a lot of typing! It takes me several hours a day to make it. I somehow do not do this just for the money, I am having a lot of fun here at mylot and I do learn many new things.

I think I got about 600 to 700 posts before I made first payout. It had gone quite slowly for me as I generally don't start discussions and I don't upload many photos. I'm still quite happy with it though!

Hi there jade, i have made around 200 posts when i got to the $4.55 mark, so that would average to about 2.1cents per post. When i further calculated, i found that i would reach the minimum payout of $10 at around 400 post counts! but just yesterday, i have began to upload many pictures under "interest" so that would allow me to earn extra bucks without too much effort. I don't have any referrals here in myLot which is bad =.= i really would love to get more referrals so i can earn more per day. Generally, people do take about... 500-600 posts to reach minimum payout since most do not write their responses in much depth and leave it at around 2-3 line responses which mean that they will not get paid as much as someone writing, lets say, 6-8 line responses. myLot is a "QUALITY not QUANTITY" site, so making sure that the response provided is of quality is more important than posting A LOT of response with little effort.

Yes you are right I almost took around 500 posts to make my 10 $. It was exact I must say. I had made 500 posts the previos day and stopped. The next day I had made 10.24 $. I had a coincidence. So I am going to receive my first payment this month. I am happy. I congratulate all who have made to this and wishing all other luck !! This i had to take 500 posts because I am a beginner. I have learnt other things too earn form here. I congratulate you that you were a different person in making 10 $ in 400 points. Now I have mafe 4.40 $ with 110 posts. It this continues I can make 10 dollarsa within 250 posts. I can feel you are moeesensible and will reach the target sooner. Good Luck !!! http://praveenkumar5.blogspot.com/

I think that it all depends on the quality of your posts. I figure I typically earn over a penny post, so I will not have to get to 500 before I reach payout. I have been here a couple of months now, but I am no where near payout because I have been so busy with work that I do not have a lot of time online.
