- Users connected to Uphold: Payments Complete
- Users connected to Gemini: Payments Complete
Unverified/non-connected users: Claims Complete
NOTICE: For Uphold users, payments will now appear as one deposit into your Uphold account, rather than an individual deposit for each wallet verified/linked to your Uphold account. Example: If you have 3 browsers verified with Uphold, each earning 1 BAT for the month, you will receive a deposit into Uphold for 3 BAT.
Note that this status update post is for Brave Ads earnings payouts to Brave browser users . This thread is not for creator payouts for tips.
Please make sure that you are using the latest version of the browser as it includes important fixes and updates that help ensure a smooth payout process
Didn’t receive your payout or only received a portion of it? Here are some things to consider first.
Are payouts still processing?
Although Brave Ads payout transactions begin on 7th of each month, it may take several days to fully process the large list of transactions. You may therefore see other users receiving their payouts before yours arrives. Additionally, if you are using Brave Rewards on multiple devices, they may be paid out at separate times – that is, you may receive payment for one of your devices before the other(s). The browser, and this thread, will tell you when all payouts are complete.
Are you included in the payout period?
Please note that the payout beginning on January 7th is for Brave Ads earnings throughout August (plus any BAT you’ve accumulated before that). If you only recently enabled Brave Ads (for example, after September 31st, 2022), you will receive your payout in next month’s payout period.
“Why is my payment amount different than what my ‘estimated earnings’ was showing”?
This is perfectly normal! Sometimes ads do not fully reconcile (“cash in”) before the end of the payment period. So while this does appear in your Estimated earnings in real time, unreconciled funds will not appear in the current month’s payout and will instead be “rolled over” into next month’s payment.
Maybe you received it!
If you do not have a verified Rewards profile, you’ll need to go into your Brave Rewards panel or brave://rewards page and look for a “Claim your ad earnings now!” button. If you’re connected to a custodian (such as Uphold, Gemini, or bitFlyer), your payout will be deposited directly into your account, so be sure to check your transaction history in your Uphold, Gemini, or bitFlyer account.
