March 2020 Ads Payout Megathread

This is the official support thread for this month’s Ads payout. Please direct any issues related to this month’s Ads payouts here.

if you’re a Creator with questions about your publishers payout, please see our Publisher payout megathread instead.

Before posting here, make sure none of common reasons for missing an Ads payout apply to you:

  1. Anyone whose BAT balance has suddenly dropped or zeroed out should fully exit and restart the Brave client. Make sure to completely exit out of the program and try again. This should fix most of the cases here – if not, please let us know and we’ll dig into your account!
  2. Ads payouts have now fully completed (including retroactive Ads payouts from past balances). If you didn’t get paid, email us the details (see the below instructions on writing in).
  3. If you’re expecting an Ads payout you didn’t get, you may be in an unsupported region. Brave Ads payouts are only available to those residing in supported regions.

Lets start with this. If there are ‘unsupported regions’ ads should not be available or not get activated to users that fall in this category. Since ads were delivered (and advertisers paid for those ads to show to users that reside in unsupported regions), users should be paid what they are owed no matter what. Otherwise, Brave simply comes up with silly new rules in order to pocket BATs that were paid by advertisers. To me, at this point, Brave credibility is next to zero.

Normally, payouts not being processed, or being processed in parts - although the process should only take minutes even using simple Excel spreadsheets - should not be happening at all. Even the crappiest database running on a 20-year old Pentium processor with 256 MB or RAM would be able to process correctly all user entries within a few hours. Not days. And not by omitting entries. The fact that this thing happens for months in a row now, and nobody at Brave cares to have it somehow resolved, means that it’s not happening by accident.

Blink with a question
Hello, I’ve been viewing ads for a month, and I had 6 BAT for the reward, I wanted to send a tip to my blogger as a reward, but the accrued coins did not go to my wallet account in the browser, instead the date changed to April 5. Do I need to pass KYC to just send tips???

That’s probably the payout from sponsored images just like mine. Pending ad payouts from Brave Ads should show increments of .05 BAT if I’m not mistaken. If you didn’t see payment like that, then that probably means you still haven’t received the payout from Brave Ads and you only just received payment from Sponsored Images.

Well, I think we’ll be getting 2 different payouts per browser wallet. One from the earnings for the Sponsored Images and the other from viewings Brave Ads. Usually payouts for viewing ads has the increment/range of .05, for example; 4.25, or 7.05. That’s how my payout from viewing Brave Ads look like. I think the payout I just got is from the Sponsored Images and I still don’t have the payout for viewing the Brave Ads. You’ll know when you get the payout for viewing Brave Ads when the Pending Rewards is reset to 0.
