    How exactly does the Hubpages payout system work?

    Let's say I made $30 last month, $20 this month so I hit payout. Then, I made a further $20 the next month. How much money would I receive on the 28th of that month? Would it be the total of $70 or will I just get the $50 from the previous two months? This is just an example and does not represent any earnings.

    If you made $30 in August, you would not receive a payment on September 28.
    If you made $20 in September, you would receive a payment of $50 on October 28 – which is the combination of August and September earnings.

    If you made another $20 in October, you would receive no payment on November 28th, but the money will be carried over to be combined with the next month's earnings.

      Thanks for answering Writer Fox! I was pretty sure on how it worked but I was just a little confused on the nitty gritty of it all. I should be paid next month so that's definitely something I will be looking forward to! Well done on best answer!

    Yes, as Writer Fox said, there is a delay. It is confusing at first but you get used to it after the logic of it all settles in. I received my second payout this month which took months to add up.

      Hey Jan! Wow, well done on your second payout, you really deserved it! I should be paid next month, fingers crossed, I can't wait! It must be a great feeling to get rewarded after all your hard work here on HP. See you around, Jan!

    Another thing I learned from someone else posting around here was that the payout is automatic, so there is nothing you need to do to get it, I believe.  I haven't made payout so I don't know for sure.  But apparently they just put it in your account.

      Hi Crafty!
      Thanks for answering, yes, the payment is automatic and it goes into your e-mail and out with PayPal. I'm sure you should get paid soon with over 90 hubs in three months! It's amazing, well done! You have great craft hubs!
