so far i find out is 150 or 250$ but one is more important, is this on each region? like if i sold 100$ on usa and $100 on europe, do i get pay or i need a minimum for each country, if it is by country, i can start saying good by to my money like from indonesia,iraq lol, no way i can accumulated that much on those countries.

    You have to earn a total of US$150 worldwide before Apple will send you a payment. Hope that helps!

    They may have scrapped the minimum pay. I heard something about them stopping it a while back. Not sure though.

    Like @mynameisace said ive heard they scrapped it as well. However some people still say they dont get paid until they reach the $150, while others say they do. So maybe its based on area. Not really sure.

    This can be found in the iTC FAQs:

    Why didn't I get paid? What are the requirements?

    Payments are made within 45 days of calendar month end if both of the following conditions are met: - All documentation is complete, including any required banking and tax information. - The payment threshold of USD $150 has been exceeded. - If you have not received a payment for a given month within 45 days after the end of the month, please confirm that all documentation has been completed and provided. Also, please confirm that the cumulative amount owed exceeds USD $150 by converting reported amounts using current exchange rates.

    However as other said they lowered that threshold, at least for some, maybe it depends on the country the developer lives. I, for example, have received bank transfers from Apple as low as 30€.

    There is no minimum. I got as little as $4. As for the rest nobody knows. For some time they paid me monthly then nothing for over 2 month.
    Just forget about (unless you are receiving thousands every month) that way its a nice surprise when your $20 or $50 come in ;0

    I got paid before $100.
