I believe IB4G2008 is referring to the lack of consistent email notifications to changes to issues we are engaged in (as per the check box located just below the box we type a reply in indicates we will be but rarely are, at least on my end) as it can give the appearance that we aren't attentive, and I have noticed a lack of Premium issue posts (where do they go) at times when they are obviously being posted. I won't even mention trying to catch a Premium Chat, oops I guess I did .

Am I starting to get you IB4G? Please correct me if I missed the mark?

Are private health exchanges raising their premiums now? Wouldn't they drive customers away to more competitive marketplaces?

A competitive price difference across marketplaces is not possible as all of them are operating on the same insurance rates issued by carriers. Therefore, state or <a href="">private benefits exchange</a>, their premium rates are comparable and that's not a reason for customers changing loyalties.

How to earn/get money on/from fixya

In order to earn money on FixYa, you must become a Premium Expert. For information on how to apply, please view this Tip.

Once you have been approved as a Premium Expert, you will notice some changes on your My Expertisepage. First, there will be a banner regarding your preferred method of payment. Click on this banner and select how you would like to be paid. There will also be a module on the upper right of your My Expertise page called My Live Chat Status, as well as a link to your Account Statements.

Answering Chats
If you would like to do a Live Chat, where you assist the customer using an IM system, check the "Available" option on your My Live Chat Status module. Then, as long as you are on FixYa, you will receive a pop up to alert you to any available Chats in your Areas of Expertise. Please make sure you have enough time to do a Chat (up to an hour or more) and that you only assist one customer at a time.

Answering Premium Questions
Premiums can be found at the top of your My Expertise page with buttons marked $3, $4, and $6. Please view this Tip to see more info about Premiums.

Keeping track of your earnings

If your Premium Solution or Live Chat Assistance is "Accepted" by the customer, you will be credited the amount on the button (for Premiums) or between $6-$10 (for Live Chats). You can keep track of all the Premiums/Live Chats you have done by clicking on "Account Statements" (also referred to as your Ledger). One note about that- if something older than 7 days is still marked as Pending, then it has Auto Closed and another Expert received credit.

Money, Money, Money

There is no pecking order on who gets what and when. Its a free for all, called Crowd Sourcing. Today has been a rather busy day for Chats and Premiums.

Live Chats are notified by the Expert Utility and you only get an offer when one arrives in your area of expertise. By broadening your area of expertise you may get more offers.

From where I sit on the Internet Trunk I'm never lucky at this and just work some premiums from time to time. And, those, who gets win sometimes makes no sense at all.

Some experts here make several hundred dollars a month and mostly it averages near one hundred. You have to have 50 solutions offerred and have five votes before you will get a chat offer or see a live premium. Since you are seeing premiums than you are qualified to get chats. I would reexamine your selecte areas of expertise in your profile and see if you can't broaden it out a bit. For example, if you live long enough and are the fix it type you've probably fixed your share of vacuum cleaners... an area I've made money on a lot. And that goes for coffee makers and toaster ovens, etc.

The heavy money comes on the more challenging computer and network issues and cars. Cars is a real money maker for people like Toyota Ed who has been doing this forever.

Most of us here are not in it for the money, frankly. The work I do on FixYa just keep me fresh and on top of issues I run into in my business and help me immensly in servicing my clients for effectively.

Before you do hang it up out of frustration, and I remember my own expectations and the realities, I would suggest you email lauren@ and ask her the same question.

Hope that helps you understand things a bit more.

How to change rating in chat

Hey ID

Not sure, if they go into the my profile page then scroll down to the chatsessions, there is a write review button on eatch one, useing that button they might be able to change it but it also might be grayed out since they have already given a review.

By the way, I saw you post this into a premium
  • "FixYa!" - The solution provides great advice on how to solve the problem.
  • "Helpful" - The solution provides useful leads that helps solve the problem.
  • "Thanks for Trying" - The solution does not solve the problem but the effort is appreciated.
  • "Inappropriate" - The solution has absolutely nothing to do with the problem.

  • Good but

    Thats only for free solutions, the premiums have difrent buttons. So that can confuse the user, just a thought. (accept, ask and something else if I remember right, accept = fixya rateing)

    Still about the rateing they should be able to contact (Check the address that might be wrong) and ask to have the chat rerated. or unrated so they can rate it again.
