Alright, so I've read a few stories about people making some alright spare change with AC, so I decided to make my own AC account (was about 6 months ago I'd say). Anyway, I'm not in the US, but I had two articles published but it doesn't look like I was paid anything for them. Sorry if this has been asked before and I have missed it, but my search brought up little relevancy to the information I was looking for. Also, do I need an account in the US in order to get paid each time I submit an article? If I don't have a US account, when will I get paid for each article? So my main question is, why wasn't I paid anything at all for these two articles that were published? Just had a quick look at AC, and it says something like; 'if I am not from the US, I can only get paid performance payments, not upfront'. Does that basically mean I get views or don't make anything for each article I submit? Thanks in advance.
