They try to confuse you by pricing items in credits, but the way it works is that the buyers pay $1 per credit, and sellers receive .65 per credit, with ELM pocketing the difference, if they are bringing in a lot of buyers, however, 35% is a fair price, IMO.
Basically you create an account, set up gigs you are willing to fulfill and wait for a buyer to order and pay; once you deliver the gig you get paid to your Alertpay account. Seems pretty cool.
And - the pros and cons of Extra Lunch Money:
- You make and sell content on demand.
- You set your own price, so you get what you deserve per item.
- New site, so it's not over saturated.
- Easy to get a profile on the site.
- You get to decide what you want to do, and how much you want to do.
- Get paid directly to Alert Pay whenever you want to cash out.
- New site, so not very much traffic.
- Guys get to message you for free messages so you don't get paid for those and there could be a lot of time wasters.
- ELM withholds 35% of your earnings, while it's less than other sites, you still do the work and they keep some.
