$150 check for regions

expired_012expired_012 Posts: 1,802Member
Hey guys, I have a quick question. So right now most of my sales are coming from the US so I will probably hit the 150 mark in the US but what about the regions that only made me $7.00 or some even $2.00? Will they just stay like that and will never receive any check from them unless somehow my sales dramatically go up to reach $150 in that region? Even though I made barely anything from all of those small regions, I would really like a check from them because it really does add up

    Unfortunately, until you reach the $150 mark, I don't think you get paid from those regions, unless you decide not to renew your account, then they'd probably give you whatever $ you made from other regions.

    I would guess a class action lawsuit of some sort would get you your money long before you hit $150 in some regions.

    Maybe the only good thing about all the lawyers in california.

    I recall reading somewhere on here that even if you haven't hit $150 that at the end of the year you still get paid out.

    I can't find the damn thread....

    Can anyone confirm or slaughter this truth/fallacy?

    Puh-lease? ^-^;

    Hi peachpellen, I read that too; that sums below $150 are paid out at the end of Apple's financial year. I can't confirm this either way, though. Which...doesn't....help you...

    How long I have to wait to get paid guys do you know?

    If you've reached or surpassed the £150 goal, then quarterly. I think.

    Yeah, I too remember seeing something about that.

    Just found this, but it seems to be from early 2009 when the threshold was $250

    I asked this question a few weeks ago in one of the sales related threads, and someone(can't recall who it was now) said that the accounts do get cleared out at the end of the fiscal year....which would only make sense, because even though apple hangs on to it until it meets that 150 threshold(and makes a buttload of interest, i'm sure) it's still your money.

    If you did not earn any proceeds for a currency/territory for a given month, that financial report will not be made available on iTunes Connect.

    If your proceeds from sales for a given currency/territory for a given month are less than $150 USD, or the equivalent in local currency, we will withhold payment until you accumulate more than $150 USD (or equivalent).

    Beginning with August 2009, Payment Advise files will be made available to help you reconcile Financial Reports to payments received. Payment Advise files are only posted if a payment was made for a given currency and are identified by file names ending with "_PYMT.txt".

    Note: Beginning with your November 2008 reports, free app downloads will no longer be included in your monthly financial reports. To obtain reports regarding free app downloads, access the Sales/Trend Reports module and download the "Monthly Free" report. The units for free apps, if any, on your November 2008 report should not be relied on as they represent sales for only a portion of the month.

    Found that in iTunes Connect Financial reports page.

    I sent an email to apple and the reply I got was that after each year to the date that you enrolled, ie due to pay licence fee again it pays out. It also said that hay are looking in to a method of paying out at a lower limit something like $50. not gospel tho lads as I have read other statements on the web.
