You acknowledge and agree that funds may take up to 10 days to process. “Payment Agent” means Quora’s payment agent, which is currently Stripe, Inc., and which may be changed by Quora from time to time upon notice to you.

Earned balances less than $10.00 U.S. dollars (or its equivalent in local currency) will be rolled over to the next month. If any excess payment has been made to you for any reason whatsoever, we reserve the right to adjust or offset the same against any subsequent amount payable to you under the Monetization Terms.
