How do the payments appear in your account?

When you get paid, do you see a payment from 'apple' or something different... I have not received any payment despite making over $150 in one particular region.

How does it appear for you?

thanks

    first off.. in itunes connect make sure you have a txt file in the list of financial repots where the filename ends in PYMT.txt for whichever regions you are over $150 with.
    (note...July's files still have not been delivered)

    Once you see the report in your itunes connect account, the money should be in your account a few days later. Should be pretty obvious from the reference what it is...but they are all slightly different depending on which region its from.

    So you have to make $150 worth in EACH region before getting paid? That seems tough, because some regions are very small... It might take a long time

    So if you don't make $150' does that carry over to the next month, I hope?

    QUOTE FROM DOCS

    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.

    @FranzKeller It's not difficult to gather 150$ from each territory. There are only 6. United States, Europe, Canada, Australia, United Kingdom, Worldwide, Japan. In US is very easy to gather 150$.

    I'm pretty sure that each of those counts as a separate region...
  • DreamWorldDreamWorld Posts: 43Member
    @BarkBarkCo No it's not. If you check you financial reports you will see only the 6 I mentioned.
  • FranzKellerFranzKeller Posts: 517Member
    But do the amounts roll over from month to month?
  • BarkBarkCoBarkBarkCo Posts: 1,400Member
    Yes.

    @DreamWorld, Thanks for clarifying.
  • DreamWorldDreamWorld Posts: 43Member
    If you mean that if you don't pass the 150$ limit the previous month and the money go for the other then yes.

    I have just got an email saying the payments section in itunes connect has just changed...

    A brief look and it seems like they are scraping the $150 in each region and now will pay out 4 times a year....

    What does everyone else gather from this new addition?

    ohh no 4 times a year!!!! i hope that doesn't start until we get the Bumps money:P end of next month.

    I highly doubt they are only doing payments 4 times a year. In their e-mail about the changes, there is this bit of text, "In addition, we've reduced the thresholds required for you to be paid, increasing the likelihood you'll receive proceeds each month."

    So if it was just 4 payments a year, why would they say "each month"?

    lower thresholds (than 150$) would seem to be GOOD news for debs
    Especially us independents who don't have EA sized ad budgets ;-)

    Does that money add up with ALL the apps you sell?
    Thus it's better to have several apps (though good ones!) for sale

    "each month" would imply that we'd still get paid monthly?

    But the question is - what is the quarterly event about?

    Isn't the legal world sad when it takes an entire forum of people to figure out a "simple" document? ;-)
