Windows Dev Center

Payout summary

Important noteImportant Note:

This topic applies to the earlier Windows Phone Dev Center dashboard and not the new unified Dev Center dashboard. Since we are still in the process of migrating all developer accounts, the info here may not apply if your account has already been migrated to the new dashboard. For more info, see Using the unified Dev Center dashboard.

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.

Important noteImportant Note:

Windows Store historical exports will be available in Payout summary by the end of May 2015.  If you need historical exports before then, please view the Financial summary in your Windows Store dashboard.


To be eligible for payout, your proceeds must reach the applicable payment threshold. If the proceeds are less than the payment threshold, 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, including a link to download all of your Reserved transactions.

  • Upcoming payment shows the number of upcoming payments, the amount of your next payment(s), 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, including the payment amount(s) and their respective revenue source.

  • Most recent payment shows the amount of the last payment attempted. If the payment was successful, the tile will be blue and will show the number of successful payments. Click the tile to see the details for each payment. Note that if we attempted to make multiple payments and only one of them was successful, only the amount of the successful payment will be shown on the tile. If one or more payments failed, the tile will be red and it will show the number of failed payments. You can click the red 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. Click the tile to see the amounts that came from each revenue source.

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 successful monthly payments 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 revenue source (such as Windows Phone Store, Windows Store 8, Windows Store, etc.) by 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 your payment.

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