When are my earnings paid?
When you first join you will receive your first earnings 2 months after you join. Due to our revenue share methodology, there is a necessary delay before we can calculate author earnings. The reason is that we need to wait until an individual subscription period has finished and no more downloads can occur before we can determine the earnings value of those downloads. After this, we pay out your earnings into your nominated account each month.
