I was curious if anyone else completed a paid review, only to have the history screen say "payment approved but still pending." Is anyone familiar with this?

the money shouldn't take more than a week to come in, but it doesn't come in automatically.

The payment will likely come within a day or two. It's pending because Scott might do a bunch of payments all at once rather than each reviewer's payment immediately after your review gets published. I highly doubt it will take a week, although it might take slightly longer than I mentioned due to all the changes being made to the website at the moment.

It can take up to two weeks, so please be patient. :tiphat:
