How it works

I am new to this format. If I have 112 views and the website is advertising .60 cents paid per photo view, shouldn't I have more than .32 cents in my account earnings? I'm just curious as to how things actually work.

I think you have two issues going on here.

1. There is a discrepancy in how the values are shown. The pay per view is shown as a decimal of a cent, whereas earnings are shown as dollars. So if you are seeing .32 in your earnings, that is 32 cents ($0.32 of a US dollar). The payout is currently at 0.6 cents ($0.006 of a US dollar). So that means you have had around 53 paid views, which brings me to the other issue:

2. Only views over 5 seconds are paid, and only the first time a user looks. So it seems that about half of the 112 people that looked at your photos didn't stay for 5 whole seconds, or some came back.
