Payment?

Has anyone been paid yet today? I know that payments go out "the week of" but I was hoping that since the 15th was yesterday that we would be paid today.

Re: Offer offer offer... and no sales.

Still receiving offers from Customer Info. They are not ridiculously low and all for old items in my catalogue (I haven't written anything here since April.) so I have been accepting them. So far, nary a sale, and some of these offers have sat through two payout dates. We're coming up on a third and...

Re: Offer offer offer... and no sales.

I have had a rush of offers from customer Info also over a period of several weeks. So far, nary a sale. If he/she actually purchases even half of the offers made, it will be the first substantive payout I have had here since May. But I'm not holding my breath. :|

Pay?

I haven't been writing here since April. But a couple of my articles sold from the catalogue, so I'm expecting a payout for the first time in months. Any chance of being paid today or will it be delayed until tomorrow as often seems to be the case? It's 4:30 here in the Midwest so I am guessing tomo...

Re: Received Offers Held for Days

OK, thanks Lysis. That actually makes sense. None of the articles are "waiting" so I guess I will let the acceptances stand. I usually don't accept offers but these offers were OK (as opposed to one offer I received for $3 for a 1,000+ word article 0-o). I haven't been writing here since A...

Received Offers Held for Days

Last week I received a bunch of counter-offers from the same customer. Or at least the offers all came from a customer with the same name. Anyway, I accepted all the offers hoping they would be picked up in time for today's scheduled payout. But all of them are still sitting. If you accept an offer ...

Re: The big order that was coming in last Friday

I submitted 8 articles, all approved quickly; sold precisely none. I may reprice them (higher) if they don't sell before the next payout. I've done that with other articles and had a handful of them sell. I imagine these may sell eventually as well, but I was really hoping for a decent payout this t...

Re: Articles under review for days

I have noticed that a whole slew of 5-cent-per-word requests are going unclaimed recently. I can't/won't do them because this week I have a full plate of assignments from other clients. But I am not sure I would have taken any of these requests anyway. This particular customer is super-slow to make ...

Re: Writers' Pool Articles Still in Queue?

All of my "waiting" articles finally cleared this morning, and even some of the "view" articles, too. But the three most expensive articles are still in "view" status, LOL. I am still hoping that they get picked up in time for the next payout. Speaking of which -- I hat...

Re: Writers' Pool Articles Still in Queue?

I am in the same boat as the OP and others who have posted to this thread. I have seven articles for one project in "view" status and another 14 articles for another project which have been "waiting" for several days.The articles for the "waiting" client typically take ...

Re: Rejected...with no errors?

DMS = demand media studios. They dead. CE = copy editor. These were elusive, mystical people who somehow were experts in all the things as well as editors. LOL at Lysis But you do speak the truth. DMS be dead as the proverbial door nail, except they are still ambling around zombie-style. Scary. As ...

Re: Rejected...with no errors?

I have been getting those kinds of rejections lately as well. I just shrug and strip out whatever the editor didn't like and resubmit. So far that seems to have worked, but I hope I have not jinxed myself by saying so. As for DMS, they are around, but from what I hear pickings are slim and the CEs a...

Re: Pay?

I am guessing that we won't be paid until tomorrow (Monday). I have noticed that payouts tend to occur on the 2nd and the 16th, unless either the 1st or the 15th falls on a Friday or Saturday, in which case payments may be as late as the 3rd and the 17th (if the 1st or the 15th is on Saturday) and o...

Re: What are we missing?

Will these credentials show up in search results when customers search for writers? That would be a big help for those of us who are only included in one or two writer pools (or none at all). That would help make us more visible for potential private requests. To directly respond to your query, I wo...

Re: Pay?

"So yeah, was kinda wondering myself but I'm pretty sure they are having some tech difficulties." That does make sense. Support prolly has its hands full trying to patch up the site. I'm actually not expecting that much this time around, so a couple of days delay isn't critical -- for once...
