Payment Process

Payments are made monthly and are subject to threshold requirements. Publishers will need to have a minimum threshold in payments due, in a given month, in order to be paid. Once the threshold is reached, Microsoft will issue a payment within thirty days of posting the publisher’s payment information on pubCenter. If the publisher’s earnings balance is less than the threshold, earnings will continue to accrue until they reach the threshold. Publishers can view the available payment amount in the Payment column.
