The payment was from things bought in November and December – if even December. There’s a delay. And they don’t show up until they are shipped. however, things do eventually show up. I wouldn’t worry, even if it takes a few months to earn the $10 minimum required before they pay out, they do pay out.
Of course, if anyone wants to donate directly to the Institute that is always welcome, but I don’t worry about it until we have a big pill to pay, like renewing our web address or something similar. I like the amazon method, even if it doesn’t pay much because it’s a bonus from what you would already buy.
And in case anyone is a little paranoid, I only see what is bought, I don’t see who is buying things. So I honestly have no idea what items went where.
