This is realy bugging me.. Why is it that we all have to earn the same amount of points in order to rank. But yet we in the UK are getting less points for our offers than the US ??

For instance, Bigfish games gives US members 900 points
But gives UK members 432 points, for the same offer that we pay the same ammout of cash to complete ??

Another i noticed..

Netflix gives US over 800 points.
But pays out only 432 points to UK members ??

Is this really fair ??
I dont think it is !

I complained about this, the honour levels we're fine till they were changed, but Canada have less offers, so it's "apparently" balanced out

It doesn't really matter about the conversion rate because it doesn't really come into play. No matter how unfair it seems to anyone, nobody on P2S sets the amount paid out from offers. The advertisers do that. If you want to blame anyone, blame them. External offers, P2S doesn't even have direct contact with advertisers. As for the honor levels seeming unfair, we've discussed that quite a bit in a few threads in the forum. The reason it was raised for you is because statistics were valuated site-wide and UK members earn the same amount as US members. If you want to read that explanation from admin, you can do so here: Unfair honor levels

Really you're just comparing the offers that are alike and seem lower for you, not looking at other offers and considering you might have higher paying offers than we do in US. For example, the US Opinion Surveys daily only pays out $0.55 opposed to your UK Opinion Surveys which pays out $1. You can earn double the amount daily from this one survey than we can. Some offer categories even offer different payouts if you go through them all and compare them so make sure you do that before completing a paid offer.

As I posted your thread in my previous post, it didn't have to do with Canada at all.
You guys earn just as much as we do and have the same opportunity.
