Other things to know:
      • Payment is processed around the 15th of every month. Money will be deducted from your earnings and you will be sent an email notification.
      • We pay out your publishing earnings when you reach the threshold of $75 or higher.
      • Publisher payments via wire transfer still have a $300 minimum threshold.
      • If this month’s earnings are less than $75, we will add them to next month’s payment.
      • While we’re processing your payment, the amount will be deducted from your dashboard. See your payment date in your Transaction History.

Just a reminder: The amounts specified in this note may be reduced or denied if Chartboost determines that there has been suspicious activity with respect to a transaction. We’re sending this note to you now as a courtesy, but we may not yet have information about all instances of fraud or other suspicious activity.

  • Make sure that your payment details are filled out completely. Did you provide the correct address information? Did you fill out the necessary tax forms? Did you set up a payment method? We strongly recommend you confirm with your bank that your banking information is up-to-date. For international wire transfers, ask your bank about any intermediary steps required.
  • You will not be paid until you reach your payment threshold. By default, the payment thresholds are $75 for all payment types except wire transfers; $300 for wire transfer payments. You can change your payment threshold at any time.
  • Starting December 1st, 2017, Chartboost will no longer accept PayPal as a supported payment method. If PayPal is your payment method after December 1st, your account will automatically default to Hold My Payments. Go to your payment details to select a new payment method and resume your payments.

We are updating our payment options to improve security and streamline payments to our publishers. Starting December 1, 2017 PayPal will no longer be an option for payment transfers. We will support direct deposit, wire transfer, or check for payment transfers. Chartboost publishers who use PayPal to receive earnings need to update their payment method before December 1st to avoid payment delays.

If you receive Chartboost earnings via PayPal, here’s what you need to do to avoid payment delays:

  • Go to your payment details in the dashboard.
  • Go to Payment Method.
  • Select Direct Deposit, Wire Transfer, or Check.


After December 1, 2017, if you still have PayPal selected as your collection method, your funds will be withheld until you select a new payment option. To start receiving payments again, simply change your payment method settings under Manage Funds from PayPal to one of the following:

For U.S. payments:
  • Direct Deposit / ACH
  • Wire Transfer
  • Check
For international payments:
  • eCheck / Local Bank Transfer
  • Wire Transfer
  • Check
