View Full Version : Payment from Alta Vista

Just wondering if anyone has received last quarter's cheque from Altavista? Even allowing for time in the mail to Australia I'm pretty sure I should have seen it by now.

What's Altavistas's payment record like?

Hey paperboy,

As long as I know, earnings for 3/4 quater will be mailed to you by January, 2001.

Earnings for Q3? are mailed in January 2001??

So if you started sending traffic on July 1st you wouldn't get your check until sometime in January??? (and, conversely, If youstart sending traffic in a couple of week you won't get your check until sumertime...)

From AltaVista's Affiliate Program Agreement (http://doc.altavista.com/affiliate/terms.shtml): AltaVista will pay Affiliate via check in U.S. Dollars only, forty-five days (45) after the end of each calendar quarter for all commissions earned during the prior quarter, less any taxes AltaVista may be required to withhold, and less any amount AltaVista determines, in its sole discretion, was not validly earned from proper use of the Affiliate's web site. If commissions earned during any calendar quarter are less than thirty five-dollars ($35), then AltaVista will hold those commissions until the quarter in which the total amount due is at least thirty five-dollars ($35) or (if earlier) until this Agreement is terminated.

Doesn't this mean cheques should have been mailed by November 15th?
