Your 6ya earnings will be directly determined by the number of calls you accept.
For Service Calls (Experts Only):
6YA pays a fixed rate for Service Calls that are initiated from 6YA customers using any of our mobile and web applications.
- For service calls less than 1 minute, the Expert will not be paid any fees.
-To count for payment, the call must contain services rendered by you as an Expert (i.e. if you were connected to voicemail or otherwise no live customer at all, it will not count if you lingered on the line for payment). If you are found to linger on the line, you may be removed from 6ya.
- For service calls longer than 1 minute, the Expert will be paid one of the following flat rates depending on the call's final duration:
Calls 1 min to 2 min -> $1
Calls 2 min to 10 min -> $3
Calls 10 min to 20 min -> $5
Calls 20 min to 30 min -> $7
Calls 31+ min -> $10
All calls answered between 10 PM to 5AM Pacific Time will have 30% more pay!
We wanted to reward our Experts that hold down the fort in the early hours of the morning (and it does not matter what your time zone is)!
Late Night Hours start at $1.30 per call and scales up to $13 for a 30+ min call!
Text message requests initiated by customers earn $3.00
From time to time 6YA may change or update these fees at its sole discretion
For Direct Calls (Creators Only):
As a Creator, you can set your rate for Direct Calls which are initiated from your 6YA Profile as you promote your services. You may change your per-call rate anytime from the Edit profile page. While there is no cost for you to provide paid advice through our platform, 6YA will charge you 10% of all the Direct Calls earnings you generate through this platform.
Direct Calls under 1 minutes are not charged to the customer and therefore do not generate a fee for you.
Payment processing fees (Experts and Creators):
For every pay cycle in which an Expert is paid his/her earnings, 6YA will deduct payment processing fees as charged by our payment processor ($1.00 for every ACH deposit, or $2.00 for every check issued). If you select the check option, please make sure to deposit it prior to the void date located on the check (6ya is not responsible for any banking fees if you deposit a check after its expiration date). If an expert is not issued payment in a given pay period, no fees will be deducted.
In general, we recommend ACH direct deposit over check since these are securely sent to you, and much more quickly than a check through mail. There's no way to lose a direct deposit.
If a check is potentially lost in the mail, there are two options:
1. Cancel the check immediately and reissue. Note that our payment vendor charges a fee of $25 to stop payment on an active check that has not been returned to them by USPS, and this is removed from your earnings if you want to receive a new check sooner. We will then send you a check for the remaining balance. If your earnings for that pay period are under $25, then you are not eligible for this option.
2. Wait for the check to expire (typically three months after the issue date), and then send a new check. At this time, there is not a fee associated with this by our vendor. Many times, the Expert does end up receiving the original check prior to expiration (sometimes slight postal delays happen).
