FIXYA NOT PAYING PEOPLE?!

Okay, alot of people have been saying that FixYa hasn't been paying them their money, for answering questions. I'm just wondering if that is true or not.

    No idea. It might be the fact that they don't ask for your Zip Code in your contact details. :-p

Unknown. I stopped answering the Premium questions as it seemed there were so many people jumping on them. I find I get more satisfaction in the freebie areas.
Do you have any where you were given the credit for it and not received money? I can't help but wonder if they think they get the money just for posting an answer as opposed to posting THE answer the customer selected? Interesting to find out about this even if I'm not in it for the bucks.

SOURCE: I have freestanding Series 8 dishwasher. Lately during the filling cycle water hammer is occurring. How can this be resolved

Hi,
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).
click here to download the app (for users in the US for now) and get all the help you need.
goodluck!

Recent website outage led me to search about fixya. Found many people saying they were getting paid for answers, and others saying they were being charged for asking questions. What the deal?


I'm fairly new to this site, and all I know is I'm not getting paid. I like to help people, maybe some are trying to take advantage of people. I do know there are some sites that do charge for the help, but I haven't found that to be the case on here.

Hi there,

To begin earning money using FixYa, you need to sign up and begin answering questions. You need to advance to a Premium Expert to start earning money so you can solve questions.

To sign up, go to the fixya.com website and click the link on the right hand side of that screen that says: 'Become and expert'. You can then sign up and begin answering questions.

Why don't you guys say in LARGE print upfront that you charge? Not complaining just curious... don't answer it if there is a charge :-)


Actually, FixYa gave you a choice of paying for premium service or staying with the free service, as you did with this question.

Do i pay for questions?


No its a free service. you only pay if you want to get your answer faster. With a cash reward involved, The experts will have a goal to fix your problem ASAP. If you have no money dont worry. It might just take a little longer than the ones who pay.

What are bonus earnings on fixya?


Hi BluWolve, welcome to FixYa! There are many ways to earn money on FixYa, but it sounds like you're referring to the questions with the green dollar amounts on the buttons. Those are Marketplace Questions, and they represent questions where the asker has indicated their willingness to pay for a successful solution, but has not yet entered a payment. If you post a solution to a Marketplace Question, the asker will have to pay in order to view it. If they do, they will then be able to post comments for you, if they require more info. If you have successfully solved their problem, they can "Accept" your solution, and you will be credited the amount on the button, minus a 15% processing fee (the actual payout is listed on the Post Answer page). If your solution does not solve the problem, or if the asker posts a question and you do not respond within 4 hours, the problem will be reposted for our Premium Expert Team to answer, and you will not receive credit. Since whether you earn money or not is based on the quality of your advice, make sure you're giving the best assistance possible! Follow the advice here, to create great solutions. You can track your earnings via your Expert Ledger. There are many other ways to earn money on FixYa, and you can read about them here.

Where is the low side a/c port?


The answer to your question is simple. Unless you are a licensed a/c repair person, you are not allowed to work on any a/c units. Unfortunately this means going someplace and paying alot of money.

These are state and federal laws with fines and jail time.

3. the question requires an answer for something that cannot be explained online adequately...
4. specific training, tools, or equipment are required to avoid injury or death...
5. the Experts that are online simply don't have the resources to answer your question fully...

Please feel free to re-work your question if you feel one of these may be the reason.
Of course you are not required - but converting your question to a PAID one usually increases the reply rate as well.

This question is actually for the fixya team can someone tell me how is it possible that a fixya member can ask unlimited questions for one month if he has paid 9.99$ / month member ship whereas on...


You have understood well.
Paying $9.99 you can ask unlimited question to the vast crowd of selected Fixya experts.
Paying $12 you will ask only a single question, but your question will be passed first only to Fixya Top expert.
If the problem is simple, or if you have several questions on different topics, better to purchase the Fixya Unlimited subscription.
If you think that your problem is of more difficult resolution, then better to purchase the $12 single shot question.
Top experts occasionally can also answer the $9.99 questions, but have priority only on $12 ones.
Hope this clarified your concerns.
Thanks for asking us and goodbye.
Ginko.
