Once you register a valid Patreon ID in the ‘AD SHARING’ tab, we will pay your Ad Revenue to your Patreon Account. 

Please be sure to input the correct Patreon ID. We will not be able to recover anything that is paid incorrectly!

If you do not register a valid Patreon ID, payment will not be issued and your balance will continue to accrue.

Why am I not receiving payment even though there is a balance in my Account? toggle
The payment threshold is $100 dollars. If your balance is under the threshold amount, it will not be paid out and will carry over to the next month.
If your balance is $100 or more, please make sure you have registered a valid Patreon ID in the ‘AD SHARING’ tab. 

If your balance is $100 or more and you have registered a valid Patreon ID, please check your email inbox or your series’ status in the ‘AD SHARING’ tab to confirm if you have been restricted from the Ad Revenue Sharing Program. 

If you have been restricted, or your Ad Revenue Sharing Program has been cancelled, you will not receive your balance. 

For more details, please check the question: ‘What happens if I violate the policies and/or terms?’.

We recommend that you reach out to a tax professional in your area if you have any questions.

How do I cancel my participation in the Ad Revenue Sharing Program? toggle
You can turn off Ad Display for any of your series at any time. You can also permanently end your participation in the Ad Revenue Sharing Program by opting out whenever you like.

If you turn off Ad Display or opt yourself out of the program, you won’t receive payment for the balance that accrues after the date when you turned off Ad Display and/or opted out of the program.

If you opt out or delete your account, any balance in your account above $10 from the time you opt out will be paid to you as long as you maintain a valid Patreon ID. If you change your mind, you can rejoin 2 months after the day you opt out. 

Once you’ve opted out, any records will be deleted completely and can’t be restored if you rejoin.

If you just turn off Ad Display without opting out of the program, the $100 payment threshold will still apply.
