Process for receiving ad revenue toggle

The final amount will be: (Your requested amount + 10% consumption tax) - (Transfer fee + 10% consumption tax).

3. Your payment will be transferred using your registered payment information.
You need to register your payment information before you can submit a payment request. The revenue amount you request will be delivered to your registered recipient via bank transfer within 30 days of your request.
Note:
- If you don't submit payment requests, your monthly available balance will accumulate.
- Payment transfers will not be successfully completed if your payment information is incorrect.
