Hello dear Hubbers,
Am I getting the wrong end of the stick? I've had a good read of this http://hubpages.com/faq/#hpads-payments and from my understanding, the earnings in January up to 26th should be paid to my PayPal account on 28th February. Is this correct, or will this go through in March? I have been fortunate to earn the $50 required for a month with AdSense and Hub Amazon programme combined.
Or does this $50 have to solely be AdSense alone? I thought it bundled up all of the earnings programmes you're in, and as long as you get over the $50 by 26th, you get your payout the following month.
I haven't had anything emailed to me about a payment for the January earnings, and have double-checked PayPal just in case.
Amazon is on a 60 day payment cycle.
You can see it a bit better here.
There are two different payment systems here.
One is the HP Earnings Program, which includes HP Ads, eBay and Amazon. All those earnings are lumped together, but there's a delay on the Amazon earnings due to the way Amazon pays HubPages. The threshold is $50.
The other is Adsense. If you have the HP Earnings Program switched on, you'll rarely earn anything from Adsense because there's only one Adsense ad on each Hub. Adsense pays you direct, and the threshold is $100. In that sense, Adsense isn't much use to you, but it's an essential prerequisite for the HP Earnings Program so you do need it.
Thank you everyone, I had not realised there was a longer wait for the Amazon earnings to come through. That makes perfect sense!
Marissa has explained everything thoroughly, but you said in your post " the earnings in January up to 26th ", so I wanted to clarify that the earnings are calculated at the end of the month, so it would be earnings in January up to the 31st that would be paid on February 28th.
Marisa - thanks for the explanation of HP ads vs. Adsense earnings. I thought they all got lumped together (even after reading HP's info on the subject).
The other fellow hubbers have given excellent explanations about the specifics about payments, I would add, in regards to your anxiety is that Hubpages.com and Google adsense are 'johnny on the spot" about payments. You can count on them as much as you can count on the sun shining.
I would be a lot better off financially if other websites were as reputable as Hubpages.
50 minimum is correct. Adsense pays you separately when you reach their 100 minimum.
HP: HP earnings, without Amazon $50 Jan to be paid Feb
Here is the catch: Amazon has a 2 month wait for payments.
So if you earned 40 in December, and 10 in commissions you will not get paid In January. But, if you reach 50 with HP without counting your Amazon sales, you will then be paid in Feb.
Make it simple: You have to reach $50 minimum without Amazon sales as part of those earnings to get paid the following month.
If you have 20 in commission earned by January from Amazon but have only earned 30 in Feb, since you will not be paid your AMazon earnings, both are counted this time around giving you the $50 minimum payout from HP.
HP really needs to clarify this in the Learning Center and give examples so that those who actually go there and read the information given, will understand it.
Amazon holds back commission to allow for returned products which we won't receive commissions from. They even do this with our personal associates account.
Linda answered it all. I believe it is well understood.
Wow I didn't know that adsense pay separately..where can we go to find out where we are in adsense?
Lethag, if you need specific instructions for this, an easy way to go to your AdSense account earnings page is to go to "my account" in HP, and click on "earnings" in the light gray bar at the top of the screen. Then scroll down to "external affiliate settings" and click on the blue link that says "Google AdSense Reports."
