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

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!

Does fixya reward members for answering questions?


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.

Hello my brother do you can help me i'm awnt to know how to earn money from fixya please hepl me


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 are you scamming people


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.

What rewards are getting your experts for ansering the question? You only get money with banners?


Hello,

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. :^)

The piece that shuts off sprinkler has been lost,can I purchase this piece only


Thanks for your question!
I'm sorry that you haven't received an answer yet.
The response rate on FixYa FREE questions is usually over 80%, but sometimes questions go un-answered when:
1. the question is unclear, incomplete, or poorly worded...
2. the question is mis-categorized - so the correct experts aren't viewing it...
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.
Normal rates for FixYa are...
$ 9.99 answer for one question.
$12.99 Live Real-Time online chat or premium e-mail support.
$29.99 Live Real Time phone support
Sometimes FixYa will run specials for unlimited questions via monthly subscription or reduced rates for limited periods.


Consider the savings that can be had when an informed Expert can save you a $100 service call, or a $350 trip to the car dealership.
Your problem solved - guaranteed! Or your money back!!

If you don't want to pay - feel free to re-submit your question so it returns back to the top of the work queue if you still need help.

Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for helping with your FREE question

Thought u had a answer,, you charge a fee,,kiss my grits!!! that's putting it nicely....


Don, 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.

Yes, I am in Texas, just moved there from Michigan. Got away from the cold just in time. It's beautiful in Colorado, but just too cold for me.

I had no idea you had paid for a premium service. You contacted me thru the free forum. If you would like for me to get the payment for the premium service, you could contact fixya thru this email ( lauren@fixya.com ) and tell her (Lauren) how you did not get the information you needed from the premium question you asked and would like that credit to go to me. She will know what to do about it. I really don't know how you would go about it. As it stands right now, you will end up paying whoever answered you first unless you gave somebody a FixYa! rating and accepted the solution. Unless you request a refund. Which is what you may need to do. I hate to see some other person get paid for my knowledge. This has happened to me on many occasions. I get contacted thru the free forum to solve a problem they have paid somebody else for. I don't spend a whole lot of time on the site, since almost everything I do on this site is free help.

In the premium questions you should not give anyone anything but a "Thanks for Trying" unless you are satisfied you have received the help you have paid for. I never seen a link to the premium question you paid for, so I never got a chance to answer you there. I am sure that some of the answers you were getting there were very amusing, to say the least. As I told you in my last post, I really am an expert in these receivers and I don't believe there is another expert here with the experience actually repairing them as I have. There is a decent bunch of folks working here, but many are not really the experts they claim to be. It can be a pretty frustrating activity using the premium service because there are so many so called "Experts" that are only in this for the money and try to answer questions they know nothing about. I hope it was not as bad for you as I have seen in many other cases.

Thanks,

Dave (tech48)
