The FAQ was helpful in understanding why I shouldn’t expect to see Brave ads on a consistent basis. However, my understanding is that Brave ads went live on April 24th. Is it possible to not earn any BAT for two months while using the browser 2 to 3 hours a day? What factors would contribute to Brave finding no relevant ads for a paticular user?
@btjansen5 Ads will be triggered based on the Ads categories available in the Catalog file. For example, If catalog containes 4 categories for your region (Personal Finance, Technology & Computing, Business and Education). If you browse any website, if it falls under any of these categories then ads will be triggered.

2nd Question - “not earn any BAT for two months”
From the question what I understood is, you have been using brave for two months 2 to 3 hours pare day, you have not got any Ads Grants for the viewed Ads? I am not sure whether you are receiving ads notification or not, please confirm this.
Ads earning is not instant. once you view an Ad Estimated Earning will get increased by 0.05 BAT (based on type of ads) for each Ad view . Ads earning payout date is 5th of every month. Your earnings for the ads will be considered for next month.
Thanks for the information. I understand. I haven’t seen any ads yet, but I will give it some time.
I have a second unrelated question that I was hoping you could help me with. Lately I’ve been receiving Brave notifications in the upper right hand corner of my screen. They are from totally random websites that I never use. I don’t see an option to disable the notifications.
I went to Privacy and Security > Site Settings > Notifications. I have “Ask Before Sending” selected and I only allow notifications from one website (Protonmail). Yet I’m receiving a lot of notifications from websites that I don’t recognize. Do you have any suggestions? Thanks.
I thought that ADS were not available in Spain yet, but I see this interface instead of the “Not ads available for your region” Does that mean that Ads are now live in Spain or is this some kind of UI bug?
I’m having the same problem with the same catalog and everything but I live in Puerto Rico and we’re in US territory idk if that still counts or those it have to be a state and not a
Commonwealth. btw. Love the browser
