Wow, I'm glad I've taken everything off.
I wish I could see my monthly/quarterly earnings, like the dollar amount when I made payout because the last dollar amount that reached payout was $35 and change higher than what I actually received.
A message was definitely sent to Kontera about it, but the last message I sent them went unanswered. I have little hope that they'll look into it.
The last payment I received showed on my reports page; I remember because I double checked that it was right. So, when I did the same for this payment, I saw the difference. I haven't seen this payment on my reports, but it only shows current and last, which is why I'd like to be able to see all, like Google and Amazon has a payment history page.
I thought that it was the difference at first, but it looks like the reports are recent for a new quarter. The extra $35 that I'm calculating is from last quarter's total, where I double checked the payment with Kontera reports the last time when my payment and earned $ equaled.
Plus, it was under $100, which struck me as odd since they're payout is $100 and over. I received $92 and change.
I earn about 120% more with Google Adsense than Kontera. I do not even check it that often, but apparently I earn so little with it that what I do earn is wiped out after a certain amount of time. I just decided to turn it off for good.
I have turned mine off. I had been planning to for a while, but keep forgeting and then waiting to reach payout when i get so close. It's finally off.
I turned mine off a long time ago. Turned it back on for a few days and turned it off again. It looks really bad when their calculations say that 3+4=6.
Who still has it on?
I do. I keep meaning to turn it off once I meet the $100 mark, but keep forgetting to check on it.
I still have it on, waiting to hit $100, but last time I looked it seemed that I had LESS money, three months after I had $70 and change, I had just $66 and change.
I have saved the report page in a document, and will check back in a couple of weeks to see what's going on.
If it looks like they are deliberately reducing my total earnings to keep me from reaching $100, I will write off the $66 and turn it off.
I haven't heard any word from the HubPages team about the problems we are all having with Kontera - are they going into bat for us, or are they shrugging, pocketing their share, and hanging us out to dry?
I turned Kontera off almost immediately after the first string of people talking about having problems with weird math and diminishing revenue.
Kind of sad that all that work went into adding another way to earn money and yet a lot of the top Hubbers aren't using it because of it being so faulty.

Hi all,I have been keeping a careful record of the Kontera earnings, since someone commented, and I noticed, that my earnings seemed to be hovering just under the payout level, month after month.I have now discovered...

Always figured there was something fishy about how you can't see your all-time earnings. Now that my hubtraffic has skyrocketed (averaging now 5000 hits per day) I finally started making some decent change off Kontera,...

My Google adsense has improved since I disabled Kontera on my hubs. I waited till I got to my $100 payout, and I notice that in the last couple months I have seen better revenue from Google. Soooo....no definitive test...

I don't believe Kontera is nearly as good as adsense. I have gained some clicks from kontera, but they do not give much revenue. Do you think people clicking on my kontera ads could potentially be hurting my adsense...

There have been many issues with Kontera, and after disabling the ads, my Adsense drastically increased. That's great, but when they refuse your money and take money from you, as well as tell you differing terms than...
