    I'm confused.. as most of you might know, AC now updated their Paypal system.. so I have 2 accounts on the same paypal account (different emails) and I verified both of them

    Problem is, I was paid on one of them, but not on the other... why is that?

    And (which is good) I was supposed to be paid like $7 on one and like $3 on another (performance bonus) and I got like $20...

    What is happening? I'm not complaining lol, coz I got more $.. but I wanna know whats up. Anyone having the same problems with same paypal accounts?

    Please not this is for performance payments only, I did not try this for articles...

    Are both your AC accounts US citizen accounts? If you have an international AC account, AC is no longer paying international writers at the moment (maybe in the future Yahoo will open its doors to International writers).

    Also, since being acquired by Yahoo, right now everything is a "wait and see" game. Head over to the forums there, I believe there are a few writers who have not been paid or had articles sitting for review. No one knows what is going on (is it business as usual or AC is typing up the paperwork to make the writer's payment Yahoo's problem).

    Can't really answer right now until we know more information from AC or Yahoo on this.

    One of them is US and one of them is international (lol)... As I stated this question is directed to the performance payment not article writing.. I know article writing is not allowed for international...

    Sorry let me state this another way. If your International AC account has not received Performance payment from AC please note:

    International writers are not being paid ANYTHING that includes performance payment. NOTHING. NADA. As of right now AC is dead to International writers with the exception of those who are Featured Contributors. International Featured Contributors are the ONLY foreign writers who are getting paid by AC.

    Please read:

    As of May 1st International writers receives $0.00 from AC in Performance payment because of US tax laws. International writers have abandoned AC like rats abandoning a sinking ship.

    Yahoo recently purchased AC. So *MAYBE* Yahoo will open AC back up for international writers to earn some money. However, as of right now do NOT hold your breathe on receiving performance payment from your international account.


    If you have not received your performance payment from the US account you will either need to let it slide or risk them searching your account by contacting their accounting office or the community office through email about the issue.

    It happens at times. You would need to contact AC about that. However, not sure how good you are at hiding your ip and stuff from AC so contacting them about that missed payment may or may not be in your best interest even if your account is W9 (or fake W9:cool:) approved. AC loves the ban hammer.

    Might just want to skip it this time. Not sure how profitable AC will be getting soon since Yahoo stepped in. Hopefully that will mean pay raise for all. Two accounts might mean double the earnings. Who knows.:09:
