Is a payout made automatically?

Hello!

I need a little help, please.

I reviewed a book with a payout and its status on my History bar says 'Payment approved but pending'. It's been that way for about 2 days. What does that mean exactly? My TOTAL also shows the figure as 'Owed'/ Do I have to request a payout or are payments made automatically? If I have to request, how do I do that?

The payment is made automatically, but it can take up to two weeks till it is sent.

What does it say the status is for that review on your Review Team Page's History Tab? From what I see, at looking at your prior posts, you have only done Volunteer Reviews. If a review is a paid review, it will say so when you Select it to review.
Life without a good book is something the CatInTheHat cannot imagine.


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