Pay outs - a perhaps silly question

Just a silly question of me (an older guy, who isn´t born with a PC in his cradle).
I´ve read somewhere in the explanations concerning Steemit, that payouts take place after 7 days. I´ve got some rewards 8 days ago, but there has been no payouts ?!?!.
And if I remember right, it´s the second time something like this happened.
Has something changed. I´ll be ok with that. I´m not using steemit for the money. But, If some money comes, why not.
Thank you in advance for answering.
Enjoy your day!

You have to claim the rewards in your wallet before they show up in balance.

Thank you for answering, but how do I claim theim. Opening my wallet there isn´t anything I could click at or answer etc. I tried clicking and pushing everything I see on the screen in my wallet. Nothing. I was used to redeem, when the redeem message came, but it doesn´t come anymore. So, please, how do I claim the rewards? Thank you in advance. Rolf

I'm guessing you didn't login to your wallet or not with the correct key. You have to use active key to claim rewards, transfer funds etc.

Thank you again. That worked. Kind of confusing all these keys, and if you use key x the system tells you it wasn´t meant to be used for this and another key isn´t meant to be used for that. Well, it worked somehow. Thanks and enjoy your day! Rolf

Yeah it's best to follow the recommendation to be safe. Login with posting key to post, comment upvote etc, and with active key for transactions. Have a great day!
