How many of you are still waiting for payment from Bubblews, and how long have you been waiting?
I'm just wondering, because I've been waiting for three payments dating back to September 9, 2013. I'd also be interested to know whether you are from the US--it seems that most members who are not paid are from outside of the US.
I'm based in the UK and I've been paid 4/5 redemptions but totally failed to get the missing one paid. Got a reply once saying it would be dealt within 7 days but nothing happened. My wife has got paid 2/3 redemptions but again no response on the missing payment.
I think the support from Bubblews is unacceptable and is in stark contrast to Hubpages where the staff have always been helpful and responsive.
It'll be 60 days for me in another week... and I'm in the U.S.
After numerous unproductive e-mails back and forth with their so called support team, I've resolved myself to the fact that they're a ripoff and I'm never going to see a dime of that money. In other words...Buck Fubblews.
P.S. All you Bubble lovers can spare me the standard "Well, if you aren't getting paid you must've broken one of their rules" response, because I followed the "rules" to the effing letter and I still got squat. If you're getting paid, good for you, Just don't be surprised if the payments suddenly stop coming.
...sorry, didn't meant to go off on a rant but I'm a little P.O.'d as you can probably tell...
You say 'numerous unproductive e-mails back and forth': does this mean they actually responded to you. Nobody at Bubblews ever replied to any of my emails, no matter which route I took. Have you reported Bubblews to the authorities?
I did finally get a response from them that said, in essence, "We heard you, we'll review your account, now leave us alone."
If we were talking about a large amount of $ then I would have reported them, but for 28 bucks it's not worth the hassle.
If 100 people who each erned $28.00 aren't paid, well, thats quite a lot of money. But how much or how little isn't important. It's the principle. Bubblews invites people to contribute to its site under false pretences. That's a criminal offence!
Well, if someone wants to start up a class action lawsuit, count me in.
I've no idea how to start up a class action lawsuit, but I'm in, too, if anyone wants to do it. For now, I just think the more people who do complain, the better.
My account was summarily deleted by Bubblews because of two bubblers that did not like me. NO investigation, recourse and no way to defend myself and I am out $97.00 I think it was on purpose to avoid paying me. No response to emails at all.
I have just got my second redemption. Both times it took 2-4 days. I'm about to redeem my third. I'm from Australia.
People DO seem to break a lot of rules though.
I have 4 unpaid redemptions and am still waiting:
$25.11 since 13-08-2013
$30.53 since 02-01-2014
$31.90 since 11-11-2013
$57.34 since 11-01-2014
the rest of 11 redemptions had been paid. Followed the rules, sent emails, no answer at all. Gave up waiting, continue writing, keep finger crossed

I know several hubpage writers are also on Bubblews. I have written 99 posts on Bubblews and redeemed twice. I'm still waiting for my second payment. Three weeks ago I suddenly had a problem logging in. My password that I have in my notebook was rejected. I thought it was time to change it anyway...

Starting this Saturday the new minimum for redemption will be $50. That pretty much kills my already waning interest in the site. The level of activity to get to $50 is more than daunting; it's depressing. I might try to reach one more redemption before Saturday, and then let it...
