What are my options for how and when to get paid?

This article explains the variety of methods and schedules by which Publishers can receive payment from Vungle, and the minimum thresholds, fees, and other details associated with each option.

Payment methods

PAYPAL PayPal is the quickest way to receive your funds, because it is so automated. The fees are relatively high, and are based on the Publisher's location.

ACH 

ACH is only applicable to US residents. Our bank charges a low fee, and any other charge depends entirely on the Publisher's bank. This method is also fairly quick, and will normally take between 1 - 4 business days.

WIRE TRANSFER     The fees are fairly high for Wire Transfers. Tipalti imposes a fee on each wire, and the recipient's bank normally imposes a fee as well. In the case of international wires, there is an additional 2.5% fee if the payment must be converted to your local currency. The wait time for a Publisher to receive a wire payment depends on the Publisher's bank.

eCHECK

eChecks are convenient for bank accounts that are not set up to receive USD currency. In the case of non-USD currency, there is an additional 2.5% fee if the payment must be converted to your local currency. This method typically takes 1-2 days.

CHECK Checks are only available in USD currency and to U.S.-based Publishers. Checks are processed in-house, not through Tipalti, so there are no fees imposed on payment by check. However, this method usually takes the longest to reach a Publisher.

A quick word about Tipalti, Vungle's payment portal

Tipalti is Vungle's payment portal, and we currently use it to process four types of payment methods: PayPal, ACH, Wire Transfer, and eCheck. In addition, Vungle can pay Publishers by regular check, which we process in-house. All options, along with any associated fees, are described in the table above.

Note that any fees imposed by Vungle are deducted before we initiate the transaction with Tipalti, so fees imposed by Tipalti impact your net payment from Vungle. Learn how to set up your Tipalti account here

Minimum threshold to receive payment

There is a minimum threshold for Vungle to pay you (the Publisher), which is set by Tipalti (or by Vungle for checks), and depends on the payment method you have selected. The table above lists the minimum payment amount for each payment method, along with any additional transaction fees imposed by Tipalti.

Payment schedules

By default, we pay out to our publishing clients on a Net 60 schedule, and conduct monthly revenue payouts at the very end of the month. For instance, revenue for the month of January is calculated on January 31 and, by default, the Publisher is paid at the end of March. (Note that Publisher may not receive the funds immediately, as it takes time for the payment to be received by the beneficiary.)
 
We provide the following payment term options:
  • Net 60: By default, all publishers will be paid within 60 days of the last day of the month of earnings. 

  • Hold Payment: If the Publisher does not want to receive payments, we can hold their payments. Once ready for us to release their payment, the Publisher must still adhere to the minimum payout, along with the Net60 schedule.
