important for advisors


Please follow Advisor Protocol.  It is your responsibility as an advisor to end the call at or before the maximum time.  Any time that goes beyond the maximum call time is deducted from your pay.  To ensure this does not happen we recommend setting a timer to end at least 1 minute before the maximum call time is over.  

For example if the maximum call time is 10 minutes and you allow the call to end in 15 minutes you will only be paid for 10 minutes of time.  When the last minute is approaching simply advise your caller to add more funds to their account, call again and end the call to stop the clock.  If your callers max time is 10 minutes and you allow the call to continue to 20 minutes you will overdraft your customers account and risk having your account suspended until it is paid.  To avoid account interruption please end the call at the maximum time.

To reiterate:


Step 5:  Call log

Once your call is complete your call details will appear in your call log and funds will be added to your account.  PaidByTheMinute receives a 25% fee per transaction, your payment will appear under credits (please allow up to one minute after a call is complete for your account to reflect the updated information).
