I'm planning to release an iPhone app next week. I have read that Apple pays out 45 days after the end of month (if threshold is reached). My developer account is linked to an address in India if that makes any difference.

So, if I reach the threshold in May, is it safe to assume I will get paid in the beginning of July?


As far as I can tell from https://discussions.apple.com/message/23256906#23256906 you don't get paid for a month after you hit the threshold for payment of $150. Hope this helps!

  • Thanks Apple guy. How about your personal experience? – SanSolo May 7 '14 at 12:17
  • I only recently started developing so I have yet to publish anything yet to be even able to start working towards the $150. Thanks for asking. – rcobelli May 7 '14 at 12:30

Developers get paid within 45 days of the last day of the month. For example, the amount you earned in March should be paid to you before mid-May. For my case in March, 2015, I got paid on April 30.

Also note that the minimum threshold depends on the currency and country pair Apple set. If you decide to get paid in the pair Apple set (e.g. HKD in Hong Kong or JPY in Japan), it's $10 USD or equivalent. If not, it's $150 USD.

This information is from Apple's documentation in iTunes Connect.

When will I be paid?

Payments are made within 45 days of the last day of the month in which book purchases were made. To receive payment, you must have provided all required banking and tax information and documentation, as well as meeting the minimum payment threshold.

If your bank and bank account currency is listed in this table, you must exceed a minimum payment threshold of $10 USD. All other bank countries and bank account currencies must exceed a minimum payment threshold of $150 USD.
