Reviewing Your Commission Payment Summary


We consolidate your commission payments so that they include all advertiser payments received and cleared as of the day the payment file is authorized.

A payment summary that breaks down each consolidated payment made to you is available in the Publisher Dashboard. Use the summary to view which advertiser invoices were included in each payment.

Accessing the Payment Summary

Follow these steps to view a payment summary:

  1. Go to Account in the navigation header and click Payments. This takes you to the Payment Reports page.
  2. Scroll down to the Payments Made section. For a detailed breakdown of a specific payment, click the three-dot menu and select View Payment Details, or click the Payment ID number. This opens the Payment Summary drawer.


For access to the Payment Reports section of the dashboard, you must be the Master User or Admin.

Once you open a payment summary drawer, you will find:

  • A one-sentence summary of the payment indicating which payment method was used and how many advertiser invoices are included in the payment.
  • A Download button so you can obtain a .csv file of the payment details.
