It's been 2 weeks since I did a paid review and was published. What's the maximum time for payment to be made?

What does the current status on your history say? It's normally about a week after the actual publication. Have you received payments before? If not, check your payment settings.

Grateful to get the opportunity to explore new books with those in the OBC.

I wouldn't worry about it then... it will come.

I believe my PayPal account is ready to use. If not, then I need some help understanding how to begin it and how others can access it for payment. It is just my email address I give on my profile page, right?
Thanks.

There's a specific spot on the Preferences page that asks for your Paypal email. All OBC needs is that email.

Latest Review: Purgatory's Angel by B Hughes-Millman

It's now been a month since my review was published and status was changed to, "payment approved but pending." I didn't think anything of it, since I read and review a lot. Now I have a few I haven't gotten paid for, two first-ten commissions owed, and a prize for the daily giveaway. I emailed, and it was forwarded to Scott.

I've never had this happen before and Scott doesn't usually take this long to respond (its been a week). I hope everything's ok. I feel bad complaining since I know this is abnormal. Prayers to Scott for whatever struggles he's facing lately.

I don't think the First Ten part is odd. Quite a few of us from what I can tell from the forums are in the same boat.

I think we're probably all waiting for two first ten payments. I've never had a problem with payment from the site, so I'm not concerned either. I'm sure it will come :)

Wow. I'm glad to know I'm not the only one. Come on Scott. It's been over two weeks and my email on my pay settings is correct. You can do it. I know you can pay us on time. We believe in you.

Just be patient. You will be paid. If any one has any issue with the payment, he should privately contact Scott about it.
