@GP0811 we have 2-3 ways of looking at this. You essentially have to see which makes more sense to you based on your situation.
(1) Things are working as intended and you’re fine
It’s only November 2. Based on what you shared, you have already seen 9 ads according to the screenshot you shared last night (well, last night for me). There are many ads right now that are only about 0.001 BAT per ad to be seen. So your one screenshot of 9 ads seen and estimated earnings of up to 0.009 would align with that.
If you’re unaware, you can always check out https://sampson.codes/brave/ads/my_region/ and they try to keep it updated with all the ads you can see. You’ll just have to pay close attention as it also shows which OS they are allowed to appear, when the campaign started, the maximum amount of times you’re allowed to see ads from them, etc.
It’s possible you’re not seeing many ads because they just don’t have a lot of ads in your area. And it’s also possible that currently it’s nothing but low paying ads and you’re expecting more.
Keep in mind you’re pretty much guaranteed one NTP ad every 15 minutes. So if you haven’t seen one for a while, open up a few tabs (should appear within 5 times of opening tabs) and you should get one. That said, don’t go setting timers or setting up automation in an attempt to maximize earnings as it will get you flagged/suspended for abusing Rewards (it’s meant for casual usage, not for people trying to mine/farm with it). I’m only letting you know as it’s a good way to kind of check whether you really are seeing ads and if the numbers change in
(2) It could be that it’s because of your location compared to your Rewards country.
The way Rewards works is you have to be in a supported country, connect to a custodial partner (for now) using a passport from the supported country, choose that country as your Rewards country, and then view ads from the country you’re from.
As you may know, Indonesia is not supported in terms of connecting to Uphold or any custodial partner. They have some campaigns there, but nobody would be able to earn BAT from it.
Ads are shown to you based on your IP address. So if you’re in Indonesia, it would be showing you ads from Indonesia. If your Rewards country (the country you verified through on Uphold) is not Indonesia, you would not earn BAT for seeing the ads while based in Indonesia. At least, you’re not supposed to.
Ads show based on IP address but then get confirmed/reconciled through your device Locale and Rewards country choice. If yours was United States and you’re seeing Indonesia, it would null any earnings because your Locale and Rewards country doesn’t match the IP address.
This potentially could be your issue if you don’t see ads or don’t earn many. If nothing else, it should eventually flag your account for attempting to view ads from another country.
Things aren’t quite working as usual, but reason you’re earning less is because of the country you’re in.
If you’ve been there for a year with no issue, then you’ve been a bit lucky. It could just be because Indonesia has hardly any campaigns and normally is unsupported, so antifraud just doesn’t care as much compared to other countries with more and/or higher paying ads.
Do keep in mind there are only 14 campaigns in Indonesia right now according to https://brave.com/transparency/. If true, they won’t all be available on your Mac. Add in each campaign has the maximum times a user is permitted to see ads and earn BAT, it could be you’re at that maximum for a lot. This could also be why you’re seeing fewer ads now, but you’re at least seeing and earning.
The only way to know where your situation falls under is to pay attention for a bit and compare to the link I provided which shows the campaigns in your area. I’m thinking it’s all working as intended
