Then you may need to go out on your own, make your own site, if you do not already have one, and be a lone ranger rather than under the umbrella of some corporation’s site.
Also, 20% is NOTHING! And, I mean NOTHING in regards to what they take - look at it another way - YOU get to KEEP 80%. That is more than half. I will put it into perspective: most platforms I have been on for what I do, take MORE than 50% - most are close to the 65% rate now. That means I keep at best 50% and typically, only 35% if I chose to work on those platforms. This is why I decided more than 5 years ago to build my own site and only pay the fee to PayPal for each transaction.
This “Levels” thing went into effect I think 2 or 3 years ago. I was a TRS at that time and had been for a few years. Imagine how I felt when I lost my TRS because I was 1% below the answering messages analytic? Pretty bummed. And, to this day, have not gotten back that TRS level, even though all my stats have been 100% for some time now. But, I am not going to take my toys and go home because I was set back to Level 2 - it was a learning experience and I have to deal with it. So, I keep plugging away here, and, maybe someday, I will get the TRS badge again. But, to be honest, I make the same and some months even more than I did when I had the TRS badge, so it all evens out in the end.
