How We Pay Your Royalties
We track royalties on a calendar month basis and then 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 by automatic 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.
The payment history dates shown below do not distinguish between check and Paypal and always shows a payment date of the 1st of the following month because this is when the royalties "leave" our database. Paypal payments are made, and royalties for check payments are sent over to our accounts payable to be processed and mailed by the 15th.
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 selected, 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.
