Payout summary

The Payout summary shows you details about the money you’ve earned with your apps and in-app products and when you’ll receive payments.


To receive a payment, your Windows Phone Store proceeds (net receipts minus the Store fee) must be at least 200 USD (or its equivalent in local currency). If the proceeds are less than 200 USD, they will remain in the Reserved category until the threshold has been met. For more details, see the App Developer Agreement.

Near the top of the Payout summary page, you’ll find your Current proceeds and payments. You’ll see four tiles in that section: Reserved, Upcoming payment, Most recent payment, and Total paid to date.

  • Reserved shows the amount of money your account has accumulated but which has not yet been scheduled for payment. Proceeds from your most recent sales remain on hold for about 30 days before they become eligible for payout. After that, the proceeds will be scheduled for payment the following month (assuming the payment threshold has been met). Note that the amount shown here is an estimate, because exchange rates for sales in other currencies may fluctuate. You can click the tile to see additional information.

  • Upcoming payment shows the amount of your next payment and the payment creation date. If your eligible proceeds haven’t met the payment threshold yet, no upcoming payment will be shown here. You can click the tile to see additional information.

  • Most recent payment shows the amount of the last payment attempted. If the payment was successful, the box will be gray and will show the date we sent your payment. If the payment failed, the box will be red and will show the failure date. You can click the tile to see more details about the problem so that you can remedy the situation.

  • Total paid to date shows the total amount you’ve been paid for all of your sales in the Windows Phone Store.

This section breaks down the tile info to let you see specifics by app.

By reviewing this section, you can determine which apps have earned money that’s currently in the Reserved, Upcoming payment, or Most recent payment category. You can also see the total amount you’ve received for each app. If it was necessary to make any adjustments to your account balance, you can view them here too.

You can view statements for each month where we attempted a payment in this section. The last three statements are listed here by default, but you can access historical payments through the drop-down box. To see the full statement (for successful payments), click View.

At the top of the statement, you’ll see the total amount of your monthly payment. Immediately below, in Payments issued, you’ll see a summary of how your payment amount was calculated.

In the following sections, you can see details on how much money was made per market and per app. You’ll also see details on any adjustments that were made, including the date, amount, and reason for the adjustment.

At the top of each statement, you’ll see a link to Download transactions. Click this link to get a .csv file with detailed info about each of the transactions included in that payment.

The following table describes the fields that appear in the .csv file.  Note that you may see additional fields in the .csv as we continue to update our reporting.
