Port-a-thon payment emails?

We participated in the last chance port-a-thon and our apps have been approved and up "for sale" (free) in BkackBerry World for some time. We followed the instructions from the blog post which says to wait until the Tuesday following approval to receive payment verification emails from the third party distributor. We have not received these emails.

Any idea when the email will be sent? Has anyone received theirs? How do we contact BlackBerry about this?

Thanks!

Re: Port-a-thon payment emails?

If you want to contact BlackBerry for this, I guess you should contact BlackBerryDeveloperProgram@rim.com But my idea would be to give it some more time. There are probably a lot of apps that are being approved these days, so some delays are possible.

And I received a mail a couple of hours ago stating that there were some problems with the rewards. I quote: "We have had some challenges in getting accurate reward information. This has since been resolved and we are working to ensure that you are rewarded for all your apps which qualify for rewards."

So give them some time, I am confident they will do the best they can to help you out and pay you for your apps.


A like is always appreciated,
but a nomination for BB Elite even more :-)

Re: Port-a-thon payment emails?

[ Edited ]

I e-mailed about a week ago to inquire & they just got back to me a few hours ago... 

 

they said payments for the Android & community port-a-thons will be going out this week from milestone, If all of your apps have been approved and are up for sale.

 

so if you're expecting something keep an eye on your spam folder

 

Sounds like the last chance port a thon is still in the works until they review all the applications that were submitted during that event

Re: Port-a-thon payment emails?

I only recently received the approval mails from some of my apps, which I submitted during the All-Aboard Port-A-Thon (or what was the name) the week before the Last-Chance Port-A-Thon. So if they are working synchronous, which I would expect, the Last-Chance Port-A-Thon will be next.

Fingers crossed your applications will immediately be approved (otherwise you have to wait some more :-P)

Re: Port-a-thon payment emails?

Thanks everyone!  I know BlackBerry has got to be working like crazy to organize and finalize everything from the Port-a-thons.  But I'm still anxious to get paid.  LOL.  Thanks again!
