What is the 12-7-30 rule?

With this simple rule you can easily remember the timeline from accepting a Spot till the time you get paid:

12 hours working time on the Spot (unless the Spot or description tells you otherwise), 7 days for the review, 30 days until you get your money via PayPal after you have requested the payout in the app.
