EARNINGS AND PAYMENT
Pharmacists begin to earn when they accept customers’ requests to chat, the chat window opens which connects the pharmacist to the customer, and chat time begins to accumulate on the pharmacist’s chat time clock (“active chat time”, “chat time”).
Pharmacists get paid earnings on a monthly basis (“pay period”). Pharmacists get paid each pay period once they accumulate at least thirty-five (35) chat minutes. Payments are sent on the fourth, fifth, or sixth day of the each month. Payments are sent via PayPal to the pharmacist’s PayPal email address on file. If the pharmacist’s PayPal email address field is left empty or if the PayPal email address contains error(s) resulting in the inability to send payment, the pharmacist agrees to have their payment postponed until the following payment period, assuming the error(s) are remedied. The payment consists of earnings accumulated in the previous month; and months prior if a minimum accumulation of thirty-five (35) chat minutes needs to be acquired. At the current moment pharmacists, are paid at a rate of $0.59 United States Dollar (USD) per each complete minute (60 seconds) of active chat time with a customer.
