Re: How do we get paid by Fixya for answering questions?
Hi achintya1915, welcome to FixYa. While you can earn some money as a regular Expert by answering Marketplace Questions (see below for more info), you will have to get approved as a Premium Expert in order to access the vast majority of our paying questions.
I see that you have already applied to be a Premium Expert. While you are waiting, you should review our criteria for Premium Experts- http://www.fixya.com/support/r2607184-fixya_looks_in_premium_expert. Make sure that all your recent solutions meet those criteria.
As for what you are currently seeing, those are Marketplace Questions. They indicate questions where the asker has indicated their willingness to pay for a successful solution, but have not actually submitted payment. They are a good way to try out providing Premium-level support, but do not represent the bulk of the paying questions on FixYa.
Please feel free to contact our Support Team directly at: http://www.fixya.com/contact

Tip: The max point reward for answering a question is 15.
In the time that I have been answering questions I have received a whole 5 dollars. They do have programs that you can sign up for to provide telephone technical support. But just answering questions here will really only give you the satisfaction of having helped someone out. I am a top 10% printer expert on this site, just to give you an idea. My current stats show 307,679 people helped.
You can get money to spend on the Google Play store by downloading the Google Opinion Rewards app from the Google Play store and answering questions on various subjects. You will most likely get 1 - 2 surveys a week and each one will give you a different amount. On average about $.20 each survey. Google Opinion Rewards Android Apps on Google Play
There does not seem to be any other question for this account. You would have to re-post the initial question and once someone has answered the question you will receive a notification via email from FixYa.
You can also go to http://www.fixya.com/MyActivity.aspx once logged in to see all activity including answers to any questions if any.
not sure why you think we're scamming people. you ask a question, we answer.
if you haven't paid us anything, we don't ask for anything so it's you who are scamming.
if you've asked a question that hasn't received an answer there could be reasons for that. a) you haven't give any information (as in this post) b) people are looking up the answer for you because you can't be bothered
do not make serious accusations against people helping you out of the goodness of their hearts for no reward without providing evidence or it could backfire on you
back up your claim or go away and keep your accusations to yourself!! if you have a valid claim I will back you all the way.
I am an old expert and it is the same with me. Today I started about five or six hours ago and I did one single premium question and a couple of un-claimed bid questions. I won't probably earn anything. In a lucky day you may earn more , but you cannot expect to earn a real salary. There are posters that try to use the system loopholes to earn
money. Those may earn few extra coins, but some of them gets banned from time
to time. Last year it was a bit better. Crowd-sourcing is still in its innovation phase. This is what we got right now.
I would try to find other motivations for giving answers (helping others, showing your skills, the pleasure of winning a challenge etc.), and to welcome the rewards when they come. That is what I am trying to do.

There are many different "rewards". Answering some problems can get you anywhere from $2 to $7.
Then there are chats that can get you something like $10 to $15 I believe.
Know this though, that you must answer 30 free questions each 30 days to stay eligible to answer those Premium questions.
Paymnets are made at the end of the month but only if you have $50 accumulated. Also those paymnets are a month behind. If I have $50 in Premium answers at the end of January, I do not get it until the end of March.
Hope this help.
PS. The other "reward" is knowing you helped someone solve a problem. :^)
Sorry you have been disappointed. It might help if you understand how fix-ya works. The 1000's people who answer these questions are not employees of FixYa. They are just people like me with hugely varied expertise that like to answer people's questions. When free questions are asked, most of us scan them looking for questions that we find personally interesting. When questions are posed by users who have paid a fee, those questions give us an opportunity to earn a few bucks if our question is accepted by the client. Believe me, this is NOT lucrative. But it is fun! The thing is, the fee paid questions get snatched up quickly by us experts, and most of them go a few rounds before the question is answered satisfactorily. It's really an interesting system. I have been doing this for a few months, and I have found the biggest factor in how satisfied people are with their questions depends on how clearly they have asked them.
I hope this gives you a little insight into how FixYa works, so that you can have your best chance at getting value out of the money you have paid.
