***Administrative Advisement**** Big changes to the payment system

United States
March 18, 2016 1:54pm CST
As you know, there have been a number of changes here since the reintroduction of the revenue sharing program. We have been striving to make things as easy and more importantly, as fun as possible. One of the hurdles to this has been that there are still a good many people who, for one reason or another, have had difficulty reaching the minimum of $10.00 over the course of a month. We can see where this might be very discouraging to newer members, or even some of the more veteran members for that matter. So, we are going to try a small, but still very radical experiment (because we're just crazy cool like that). For the next 2 payment periods, we will be lowering the minimum amount to $1.00 ( "What did he just say??" ) Yes.You read that correctly. $1.00. A buck. One smackeroo. 100 cents. One George Washington..... ( "Have they lost their minds???" ) Maybe, but mad science doesn't happen with out a little mad. So for the months of April and May, anyone who has made at least $1.00 by the end of March and April, will receive a payout. The guidelines must still be adhered to and we still expect quality. But we hope this may encourage those who may not have been as active to be a little more, well, active. We will take a look at things after this evaluation period and may or may not make adjustments to it. But for the next couple months, we are pleased to be able to offer payments to a lot of people who have not previously experienced the warmth and joy a myLot payout brings. So, enjoy! *Edit: Please make sure you have a paypal address entered in to your account info or you will not be able to reap the benefits. You can enter the information here:

@sugartoes I think it is a good idea, in that it will give many users more reason to be active knowing they can easily reach that amount in one month

very true. Not thinking of just the share that they will get but also the ones who makes the revenue

A $1.00 pay out will help the new ones feel better. It is worth a try so why not go for it.

@silvermist I agree, that would be more reasonable for those who can't make the 10.00 payout, and gives the admin more time to stop the spammers.

Oh my goodness, you have gone crazy. That is attainable for sure, and I can do that in one day. I am happy that you are looking out for all of us though, as there shouldnn't be one person that can't make that $1 in a month.

@sugartoes Well, even if they could come in for a few days, that is all it would take, even if they only did 10 cents a day, in 10 days they would have it. I can get it in a day provdiding there are lots of interactions. It is a shame that most of them can't be here for most of the time, but whatever is going on with them, is more important than being in here.

@sugartoes I think come summer, a lot aren't in here as they have things to do, and they can't be in here like they would want to. I will be in here pretty much the same as I have been, except when I mow the yard, and do erraands. I like mylot a lot, and I just can't picture myself not being in here.

@sugartoes I just came in not to long ago, as I was gone all morning, and just got home not to long ago. I figure with the payout amount changed, I don't have to do as much as I used to, ulnles I want to. Right now, I am trying to get all the notificatons done, that I recievied from friday until tofday. It will tak me a little time, but I will get them done, and then I will either respond to new discussions, or just get off and wait until tomorrow and start early.

Are you telling me that I can spend more time with my baby who is just 3 months old now and still make some money these two months? But wait, the chocos I can buy with the faster cashout... she surely will not have them yet.... Anyways, that is just me. I think it would have been better if things were fixed at 5.00 during the testing period. 1.00 is still too low and even spammers and abusers will be getting paid. That can be an unhealthy scenario.

@xFiacre I agree, the amount I write here isn't enough to get to a $10 threshold in two months, so I am appreciative of the trial reduction to $1.00 for March and April :)

@sugartoes myLot pays based on how the community sees our posts, since we're the ones who decide what counts as "interesting" and "valuable" by interacting with posts. If you want to increase the payment you get, you should make sure all of your posts are the highest quality that you can submit. The more interesting or valuable a post is, the more it's worth.

Wonderful encouragement to keep at it! Maybe after March and April we could settle on a $5 payout?

I think $5 amount is more realistic . The work involved for $1 seems more bother than its worth and some are struggling to reach $10 so an inbetween might suit more people.

As long as you have the minimum by the last day of the month and have entered a valid Paypal address in to your account info, payment will be automatic on or around the 15th of the following month.
