How long did it take you to reach your first payout on Hubpages?

    Some people seem to manage it after a few months, some after a few years, whats your story?

      It took me about nine months to make my first payout (with 55 Hubs), then three months to make the next one, then one month to make the next.  Since then I've made payout every month.

      That used to be the norm for most Hubbers at one time.  It's tougher these days.

        Can I withdraw after 50$? I have completed 50$ in January. When I will be able to withdraw funds?

      4 months. It was adsense only then so the payment threshold was $100, not $50 as it is now with HP ads. I've received at least the minimum payment consistently every month since and that's been 4.5 years!

    I joined August of 2012, 9 months for the first, 3 months later for the second, 3 months later for the third, and I expect the fourth in February, which will be 2 months since the last.

    Took me 20 months. Yep. I think I had about 80 Hubs then, not sure. Probably took me about a year to figure out how to write stuff that gets traffic. Not really my forte. However, I'm rather certain it will not take quite so long to reach the next payout.

    I think it was about 10 months, but not sure now, I do still get paid monthly but fingers crossed it stays that way!

    It tool me about six months, but in those days the first payout was $100 through Adsense.
    I've had a payout monthly ever since, and the drop in earnings shows because payout is now only $50 through HPads.

    I believe it was 7 months to my first payout, then 4 months to the next, then 3 months, and now I reach payout each month.

    I'm still working on it. I think It'll be a year after the end of February. I don't plan to stop but creative writing on this site is not as popular as the how-to's and research articles.

    I think it was 8 months for the first payment. The second one was after 2 months. I believe it will continue like this for 4-5 months more and may pick up if I add more Hubs. As on today I have 45 Hubs featured/

    I reached my first after about 4-5 months, now I usually reach it in 1 or 2 months...it varies. Im sure if I added more hubs I could reach it every month.

    Took me 6 months. Then after that got it each and every month. Yeah may be surprising, but I got 35 of the 50 dollars in that 6th month.

    A little lesser than 8 months. The second payout took 3 months, the 3rd 2 months and now it is every month.

    I joined the Ad Program in May 2013 and it took me 5 months to get paid. Then, it took me three months for my second payout (this January!) and I am sure I will get my third payout in two months from now. I hope to get payout every month by July of this year. smile

    February will be my fourth full month and as long as I get at least 3/4 of what I got in January I will hit the $50 threshold - fingers crossed!
