    Default "Approved Pending Payment"

    I have hundreds and hundreds of HITS that have been sitting for about 5 days that say "Approved - Pending Payment". I've been on mturk for over a month, and gotten paid/cashed out multiple times, usually everything that's approved changes to "paid" over night for me. Any idea why these are sitting like this for so long?

    Requesters have up to 30 days to pay you. Could be any number of things.

    I have had HITs approved on the same day from the same requester and some are "Paid" and the rest are "Approved - Pending Payment". I always found this curious.

    I know there is a script you can add to firefox that will allow you to see what is owed in the "Pending"

    Requesters have up to 30 days to approve/reject your hit not actually 30 days to pay your hit after it is approved. If you have had many hits approved but not paid for many days you do have an issue somewhere. It maybe with your tax information, account limit information (new accounts have a limit of $500 wd without a CC and bank account added to amazon payments) or many other issues with AMT.

    True dat. I had this happen to me at first. Once I got my bank set up they were still stuck in the approved - pending payment, so I messaged mturk support about it, and two days later they were all paid.

    Ahh okay I'll probably message mturk then because I have my tax info listed as verified and a bank account and credit card already linked with amazon payments.

    Did you get that resolved by writing to support? I had about $20 worth of HITs "stuck" at Payment Pending, over a week old. It was cleared up after a couple of emails. The first email was a seemingly auto-response telling me they had 30 days to approve/reject.

    Interesting.

    I started Aug 11th. I too have "approved - payment pending" on all 175. I'll wait another week and follow up with Amazon if nothing changes.
