Hello,

 

As you may have heard, PayPal is currently not operating in Turkey. We are working with our contributor community from Turkey to ensure they can receive payments this cycle. We will begin processing May payouts Friday, June 3 at 5pm Eastern Standard Time.

 

You will still receive your payments on or about the 15th of the month as stated in our Terms of Service. The e-mail you expect to receive informing you that payments have been processed will go out a few days later than usual.

 

Thank you for your understanding.

Hi All,

 

By default, your payment e-mail address is the same as your contact e-mail address. If you leave the payment e-mail field blank, we will process payments to your contact e-mail. It has always worked this way.

 

However, on the Account Settings page, it used to clearly say “Payment e-mail will be blank if it is the same as the contact e-mail.” This text was removed, and has understandably lead to some confusion among our contributors.

 

Thanks,

Kate

Yes, that's interesting...

That is interesting, SS seem to be using the excuse of the current issue of Paypal in Turkey as an excuse to pay everyone else on planet Earth late as well ?

It's always bad when changes that are made, are not for the better but for the worse. How I miss the good times when SS paid the fifth working day of the month, always, without changes or delays... you could count with your money... Those were great times... now, you never know, just that is late and more late. I got the email about computed earnings on 7th. Let's hope the money reaches us before weekend at least.

^ You're so right Reno

 

Like you, I can also remember when it was always the 7th for payment (or earlier if the 7th fell on a weekend and even sometimes the 5th if the 7th fell on a Sunday).

 

I think we have to refer to those days now as the 'good old days', those days when SS management were responsible, professional and supportive to their contributors.

 

Those guys all seem now to have elected to leave SS and we're left with what can only be described as 'crud'.

 

This new breed of 'cruds' occasionally appear on these forums, make a statement about a change to payments or EL Licenses or whatever, and then they disappear back to their gloomy, sad little cubicles thinking up the next change they can implement that makes the life and times of their contributors worse off but inexplicably improves EPS for their stakeholders.

 

But hey, look on the bright side. We're living in a global free market economy. Thankfully there are other libraries and other opportunities for any photog or illustrator with talent :)
