Post your Port-A-Thon Status, so we get a overview where the current process is

Hi, I would like you to post your current Port-A-Thon status so we can get a overview where we currently are:

 

  • Game Port-A-Thon: got all rewards
  • All Aboard Port-A-Thon: send my paypal account but still no payment
  • Community Port-A-Thon: got the you are eligible for the cash reward mail, nothing else
  • Android Port-A-Thon: got the you are eligible for the cash reward mail, nothing else
  • Last Chance Port-A-Thon: still my apps are pending reviews and I submitted during port-a-thon

 

what are your status? Plase post it in the same format so we can keep the overview

Plase "+Like" my post if it was helpful.

Hi Smartek,

 

You aren't the only one. Mine is similar to yours but without the Android one.

 

 

  • Game Port-A-Thon: Got all rewards
  • All Aboard Port-A-Thon: Confirmed Paypal account through website but still no payment
  • Community Port-A-Thon: Got the you are eligible for the cash reward mail, nothing else. All apps approved but one still pending.
  • Android Port-A-Thon: Didn't participate
  • Last Chance Port-A-Thon: Some of my apps are pending reviews (though some got approved) that were submitted during port-a-thon. No awards email.

I have submitted updates to some of the older apps (from the old Game Port-A-Thon for the new SDK). Not suprisingly, they aren't approved yet.

 

The bad part it doesn't seem to follow any rhyme or reason because some of my newer submissions got approved while the older ones just stayed stuck there. 

 

What I would like to see is some sort of "Current Approval Times" update on the Vendor's site sort of like what Apple has. Even if it is "three to four weeks", at least we get an idea. Right now... nothing.

 

Also I would like a fast track approval process for apps that were already approved (like what Apple has) so developers can update any apps with critical bugs.

I have recieved one payment earlier this week. I believe it is from the All-Aboard Port-a-thon in mid-December. Also of note is that PayPal took a signifcant fee for themselves...

3.9% on the total sales plus a fixed fee of US$0.30 per transaction.

So if 20 your apps approved, paypal will charged (2000 x 0.039) + 0.30 = 78.3 USD. Very crazy fee.

That much fee is just too much. Does Blackberry also provide wire transfer facility?
