Credits are how payments are made on the BLEND platform. Each credit has a monetary value depending on the client's home currency. 1 credit = $0.01 USD. When converted to other currencies exchange fees may apply.
Potential credits are credits for projects that you're currently working on.
When you finish a project, the credits change to Pending.
Once the project is officially completed, the credits become available on your account (within 72 hours).
A project is 'completed' 7 days after the translation is submitted OR after the last action on the project page (i.e. comment posted to the discussion board). You can see the status of your credits in your Dashboard ("My Balance" Tab).
The project bonus will become available 30 days after a project is completed.
