Q. When do payments occur?

Someone filled out a form for the withdrawal of a private bank or a pashchadbank on a card?

I tried to fill out a chat with a bank employee, but he didn’t give me the exact data.

Attached a screenshot of the form. If it is not difficult for someone - sign the fields, please. Not exactly the same as described in the FAQ.

* cherepets it is not clear why you need such an "advertisement" in the application? Insert better advertising of your own applications (make simple pictures-banners and cool them), or remove them altogether, for a better customer experience.



Rep: (42)
* sensboston,
Yes, I still want to pay a paid trip, but my hands will not reach it yet.
First you need to correct the display of AdDuplex.
And then who needs to pay for disabling advertising with a fill rate of 9% (that is, in 91% of cases of an advertising block, and so not)?

Well, these are standard fields ... roughly speaking the address of your registration

Now it annoys me that the support asks me to wait for my 50k to come to me ... I scored back in December, but no progress. We are waiting for the 15th



Rep: (8)
What could it be. Yesterday there was 17k on the payment, but today it suddenly became 15, how is it? Has this ever happened to anyone?



Rep: (496)
If it were in USD (well, "it was 17k, and suddenly it became 15), then I would have been pleased with even a reduced amount: D

If the case, then I venture to suggest that it is somehow related to the ruble exchange rate against the dollar ...

"Unfortunately, it’s as quick as possible to get your money back. Check back again in a little while."

I had the same thing - it was 17 with kopecks, it became 16 :(

Too last week account sausage. That +200 per day, then 400 minutes.



Rep: (482)
in the new Payout summary they wrote: "We convert sales in other currencies into your currency at exchange rates. They may change before the payment is transferred to you." the currency of the developer and how many times the conversion can occur at all.


Initially, the task was sent to a smile: the “Storage fee” column, they called it “Store fee”


and yes, the amount reserved in this report differs from the amount from the DevCenter application (on my downside).

Rep: (376)
I do not know how now, maybe they will change this stupid order, but earlier they converted into rubles at the time of purchase (or receive money for the purchase).
Thus, if before the fall of the ruble, I had purchases in rubles of almost $ 200, then it was almost $ 100 :(



Rep: (496)
With the new Payouts, the amount of approximately $ 850 (from the past Financial summary) has "magically" turned into ... $ 456.57 :( A good upgrade for MS turned out (considering tens of thousands of developers).

P.S. And yes: a telephone DevCenter (apparently using a direct link to an old report) honestly shows $ 846.22. Went to write in support - what the f ***!

Rep: (8)
It will be interesting to know what they will answer ...
Surely they will refer to some kind of agreement with the developer, where it is described that they can withdraw money for refunds, conversions, etc., as I already had.
But in this situation I, at today's rate, turned out that for a couple of thousand rubles. more out.

In general, I am most interested in what the devil they don’t transfer $ 517 (today), although I’ve already been given an answer to this question, they have the right to love my brain for 90 days from the moment the necessary amount is collected. What the amount, how they convert, and at what rate - remains a mystery.

MS is very annoying in this regard, everything is clear for Google, the income is $, how a fixed amount was collected, a letter is thrown, and the next day the money is on the card ...

What is interesting, in MS in Windows (RT) Store, too, everything is clear, typed, letter, payment. And the telephone number has already been paid twice only after applying for support: “I’m thinking I’ve got enough!”, “And when did you think I’ve got enough?”, “Yes, three months already!” please contact if anything!

And where did you find the amount of sales in the telephone? wow ...

And this is the way normal. In the old Funancial summary, they did not change the amount after the last payment. So, in theory, 393.43 have been paid to you, and 456.57 is the remainder of current purchases and the "unfinished" money of the past period.

There is an amount of "Pending proceeds", which, as I understand, is the total sales for the current moment (but this amount has not yet been received by MS, 30% have not been withheld from it, etc.). Those. according to MS, this is the same as “Reserved” in the new “Payouts”. It is not clear why this amount was two times less: (

how to fill out the form W-9

Are you a “US citizen or other US person” who has an SSN or TIN? W9 is a form for American tax. Not being a legal US resident who has a social security number (or, at worst, a taxpayer individual number), you cannot fill it in the right way.

P.S. Judging bythis post(let it be for Windows Store, not WP Store), you need to fill in the W-8BEN form.

And you are definitely "US citizen or other US person"

No = (
I just do not know how to be there? Guides did not find normal. It seems that everyone who has registered there and receive income from Russia has vowed to remain silent ... If you tell me, I will be very grateful. I have already asked how that, but everyone is silent.
