We have received a lot of criticism for our minimum payout threshold. Many of our users deemed it as far to high. If you had a small website without much traffic your money would be essentially locked up on our servers for a long time.
We don't want to hold your money hostage - the truth is simply that the transaction fees in the Monero network are quite high. So far, we have paid all these transaction fees out of our own pockets.
Today we're offering a compromise: we're giving you the option to configure a lower minimum payout (down to 0.05 XMR) and in turn charge 0.01 XMR for each transaction below 0.5 XMR. Head to your payment settings if you want to set a lower minimum payout for your account.
All payouts at or above 0.5 XMR will of course continue to be free.
