How long does it take to get your first weekly allowance?

Question

  • 0

If memory serves me right you'll get your first stipend after one full week as a premium member.......LL does not prorate the stipends.  So you joined two days ago (Wednesday) your first $L300 stipend will be paid a week from this coming Tuesday.  Had you joined three days ago you would recieve your first stipend this coming Tuesday.

 

But, that's if my memory serves me correctly and LL has changed it's policy since December, 2005.

Wildeye,

     Congrats on becoming a Premium account holder!  Your $300L stipend should come in next Tuesday, and then every Tuesday after that.  You can find the Knowledge Base explanation at http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Linden_Lab_Official:How_do_I_get_my_stipend%3F.  Here's a bit of that document:

Stipends are paid out every week by an automated process that runs on Tuesdays. Payments are based on information gathered from the database as of the preceding Monday. For example:

  • Bob Avatar creates a Premium account on Monday, April 14. He receives his first stipend on Tuesday, April 15.
  • Ekaterina Avatar creates a Premium account on Tuesday, April 15. She receives her first stipend on Tuesday, April 22.

Premium subscribers receive their stipend every week, whether they log in or not. Basic subscribers who qualify for a stipend receive one every week that they log in (that is, they are paid Tuesday provided they logged in sometime the week before).

64px-KBnote.png Note: While the automated process begins paying out stipends on Tuesday mornings, Second Life's population continues to grow, which means stipend payments will take longer to deliver. Payouts may be expected to appear later in the day on Tuesdays, or possibly even Wednesdays.

Depending on what type of account you have and its age, the amount you receive each week may vary.

  • Premium accounts created or upgraded from Basic on or after November 1, 2006 receive L$300 per week.
  • Premium accounts created or upgraded between July 21, 2006 and November 1, 2006 receive L$400 per week.
  • Premium accounts created or upgraded prior to July 21, 2006 receive L$500 per week.
  • Basic accounts created prior to June 6, 2006 receive a stipend of L$50 per week.
  • Basic accounts created after June 6, 2006 do not receive a weekly stipend.
