We track royalties on a calendar month basis and pay out royalties on the 1st of the following month by Paypal or the 15th of the following month by check. For example, royalties on your January sales are paid automatically by Paypal on February 1st or by check mailed from our US-based office on February 15th. If you are in North America, please allow at least two weeks for delivery before inquiring about an undelivered check. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you're experiencing issues with your payout.
If you have selected to be paid via Paypal and your total accrued royalties at the end of a month are less than the minimum payment amount you've selected under Publisher account and payment settings, then your royalties accrue forward to the next month.
If you have selected to be paid by check and your total accrued royalties at the end of a month are less than $100, then we accrue your royalties forward to the next month instead of processing a check.
