Sorry if this is dumb, but all this time I thought I had to reach $10 in Adsense to start receiving payments. But is it $100? I find the site frustrating to navigate, and I hoped someone here could explain it better.
If it is $100, then once I go over that threshold, will I start getting regular payments, no matter the amount?
Yes, you're getting confused with the others! Adsense threshold has always been $100 US. In Australia it's $150 Australian - which made sense when the Aussie dollar was worth so much less than the US one, but now means we have to jump a higher hurdle
Doesn't worry me these days as I always earn more than that each month, but it was darned annoying when I didn't!
There is a threshhold function on your adsense account that you can adjust.There is a $100 minimum for them to generate payment. If the threshold is not reached, it accumulates towards next months payout and so forth until it is reached.It then goes into an automated system for payment unless you change the threshold.
For Adsense it also depends on your country and the currency you have your account set up in. If you're in the US, and I think Canada, it is set at $100. For me in Australia the minimum for payout is $150. I think I saw someone mention that when set to Euros it is around 60 Eruo.
I wish Amazon would change their mode of payment as well. A cheque from Amazon costs me $10 in AUD to cash, and it takes three weeks to clear. I once asked the bank if they were sending it via carrier pigeon! Needless to say, I have my minimum payment set higher (currently $250, but I'll be moving it to $500 soon, as my earnings are increasing).
I finally reached Adsense payout last month but all I see is that payment will be sent 'by' the 31 of May. Does that mean that payment could be any old date or will it be made 'on' the 31st? Not sure I understand what...
I have to share my small success story with everyone. It’s not huge compared to what other hubbers make here, but hey I have reached my second payout in just 4 months this time. It is less than 1/3rd of the time it...
Boy oh boy, I really like the hubpages threshold of $50 versus the $100 threshold of google. But isn't the google ad program going to end and so I'll be screwed out of the income from google ads since I never had hit...
