Cashing Out

Last Updated on March 29, 2016

Having a hard time cashing out? Or, are you just wondering what some of the charges are to your account while you’re cashing out your earnings? We answer all of the questions you may have here, so feel free to poke around below. There’s a good chance you’ll find what you’re looking for here.

What cashout methods do you support?

  • PayPal: We process PayPal cashouts every 2-3 days once payment has been requested. Each user is permitted up to 2 PayPal cashouts per month ($20 minimum balance required).
  • Note: Paypal increased their fees for international Paypal accounts in 2012. To read more about this change, please visit our blog.
  • Check: We process Check cashouts once per week. Each user is permitted one check cashout per month ($50 minimum balance required).
  • Wire Transfer: We process wire transfers once per week. Each user can cashout via wire as often as they’d like, however, there is a $35 fee per transfer ($500 minimum balance required).

How do I cashout the funds in my account?

  1. Click on “Cashout” in the drop-down menu that appears when you hover over your account email in the top-right corner.
  2. On the Cashout page, enter the amount that you want to cashout, and then click on the “Cashout” button. Cashouts are usually processed within 2-4 business days.

Why is my cashout amount less than my Unreserved earnings? Shouldn’t I be able to cash out all earnings?

Unreserved earnings will display more than the available cash out amount since the payments for those earned amounts are not deposited into your account until the 25th of the following calendar month.

Why are the funds for my ad sales still pending and why can’t I cash out those funds yet?

Funds are available for cash out 30 days after an ad is purchased, so you’ll sometimes see something like the following image, until it’s been 30 days since the purchase, at which point the “available for cash out” amount will increase:

Important note for publishers who started using our service prior to July 3, 2013: As of February 24, 2015, the pending time for funds from an ad purchase is 15 days. After March 31, 2015, the pending time for funds from an ad purchase will be 30 days.

Why do I see an International Cashout Fee message when I am in the United States?

All cash outs are now subject to our $9 international holding fee. We will hold the $9 initially. If the cash out is determined to be international, and if we are charged by Paypal for the international fee, then we will deduct the fee after the cash out. If it is not international, we will return the $9 to your account balance.

You can learn more about this fee, and why we charge it, here.

Why am I seeing a cashout fee in my transactions?

Paypal increased their fees for international Paypal accounts in 2012. To read more about this change, please visit our blog.

My cashout is still pending, but I submitted the request a few days ago. Is this normal?

The billing department performs cashouts every 3-4 business days, so the time it takes for you to receive the funds can be up to 5 business days, depending on how close your request is to our next scheduled cashout. In rare cases, the delay can be up to 7 days, but if more than 7 days has passed and you still have not received the funds, please let us know.

What is the minimum amount I can cashout?

The minimum amount you can cashout for PayPal is $20, Bank Check $50, and Wire Transfer $500.

Here’s some additional information about the available cashout methods:
