As a new contributor, I was pleased that I finally reached my first cleared balance above $50 late last week and on my Dashboard, I could see a statement, "We'll pay you on 02 Jan 2017" next to the cleared balance amount. Well, 2 January came and went, and no payment was made. Then I noticed the statement was changed to "We'll pay you on 03 Jan 2017" on my Dashboard. Still, no payment yet. Just a few minutes ago, I noticed that statement was updated to : "We'll pay you on 01 Feb 2017."
Since this is my first time receiving payment from Alamy, I wonder if this sort of thing happens to other contributors as well? Does Alamy frequently delay paying its contributors? I'm pretty sure I've got my payment method (Paypal) set up properly. So why is this happening?
