Won't Receive Points? And Convert Points to Money

Journal Entry: Thu Sep 19, 2013, 9:13 PM


Just some quick tips~

I often see people saying the commission widget won't work
or saying they didn't receive and lost the points when taking commissions using it.

No worries,
This is most likely NOT a bug!

When using the commission widget, the points you earn will be showing
in your earning page instead www.deviantart.com/account/ear…

Hint: This is also where you are able to convert
your points to money if you have Paypal ;>


I have seen people having this problem countless of times,
so I thought I could write a quick journal and hopefully it can
 help the few people who had this little problem
and are reading this Little Pixel Heart

I paid another user for a CM via widget a few days back. I checked my balance to see I already paid my points, but the receiver told me she never received the points I sent to her.

I went to my earnings account and my last commission says "clearing in six days." Does that mean I will receive the points in six days?

It's the same with me I can't convert all the points that I earned and only the minimum it goes into money does anyone know how to do that?

Wait just read all the comments and found my answer. : P

My points that I've accepted from the correspondence message that my commissioner sent didn't increased the total points that I should have. Why did that happened ?

I tried to convert my points but it won't let me even click on it to type in the amount...
so I don't know if I am doing it correctly or not..

So we're still able to use the points we've earned plus the points we've already had in the first place to commission people or donate points and etc, right? Sorry if the question's confusing .u.

Oh, that's a little embarrassing~~like someone's listening in or something.  I hope I didn't say anything bad [I don't think so~~] I did wonder how you found out so fast on this deviation that I mentioned you...

You have to be careful, that you don't say bad things about a deviant, because it isn't behind their back any more!  Maybe that's a good thing--cuts back on gossip and stuff....

I was away from dA when they put this new commission app thing, can someone link me to the journal where it says how it all works? I remember seeing a journal about it but I couldn't read it.

You might want to edit the title and clarify that you can't convert points to money but you withdraw earnings as money, which means other people pay you in points but you get Earnings. You can't convert your own points though. ^^

You can only do it if you've done commissions for people. Because only the points in your earnings account can be converted. 

There is no option to convert the points in the normal points page.

Plus there is a 15 day waiting period in order to convert earned points from commission widgets and premium content payments :)

Just in case someone didn't realize that (which I'm sure most of ya did ^_^)

They say you're breaking a rule when you do that (tried it) even though I did earn all of my points by commissions, customs and adoptables =m=

You can't convert your own points to money, but when others pay you through the Commissions platform, Digital Content or Prints, they can pay dA in points and dA gives you earnings that you can withdraw as Points or money, as you prefer. :)
