    Please post updates on why earnings just fell significantly. What was showing earlier is now pending.

      @janshares Were the earnings showing as pending (not audited) before?

        I believe the asterisks were on the Amazon sales only. I thought the HP earnings were all clear for Tues and Wed. The reason I say this is because my total earnings for the month decreased after it showed a certain amount over the last two days.

    It might have something to do with those moon timeshares I was selling. Oh, well...

      I knew it had something to do with the moon.

    I've never seen so much "pending" and seems to be lasting longer, like the whole seven days. It appears to be Amazon but Tues and Wed HP earnings have changed back to pending and are now gone. I hope it fixes today. We just need info updates about what's going on, please.

      Currently,  pending earnings will "go away" for a time when they are being corrected (audited values setup).
      Right now this may take a few hours, but we are working to cut that time down to minutes.

        Thanks, Matthew. It appears to be updated now with Tues and Wed HP amounts having the asterisks and everything for Amazon with an asterisk. Thursday says "pending." The bad news is that the new total is still less than it was earlier today, before I posted this forum, just not as drastic.

        Edit: Hmmm. It just dropped some more as I was posting, by $2.00 (?hmm)

          Total back up by $2.00. What a roller coaster. Anyhoo, I hope they stay up.

    Mine did the same. It had nothing to do with pending earnings, as the size of the drop was significant in comparison to the usual small adjusted amount.

    Well my earnings seem to be dropping as we speak....!

    Mine did the same. This morning it had Wednesday and Thursday amounts showing and my total amount was a little higher. Now it just says 'pending' for those days under Ad program and the total is lower. Frustrating. I was worried it was just me! LOL!

    I've got a sneaking suspicion that HP was up all night working on the earnings data.

    Yes, they fixed the problem and all seems as it should. Thank you to those who worked so hard to fix the problem!

    I have actually seen complete, audited earnings be removed as well as pending, and more days pending for longer than usual. I did contact support about this and the advised it was an ongoing technical issue they are aware of and working on. In each case, the issue did resolve itself sooner or later.
