Yesterday my current balance was 0.00, as expected having just been paid. This morning it is -0.14.
So just wondered at what date earnings are realy finalised.

do you have the new payment experience thing? I assume my current balance is negative too, but I don't see a minus sign. I had two "invalid activities" on my record under debit, so I assume I owe the money, but the balance after finalization is not negative :-/

Yes I have the new experience thing. There was an invalid activity item dated the 17th which was taken into account in the payment, then another one dated 28th, after the payment. But I assume this is connected to last month otherwise they would have taken the amount out of the "this month so far" figure - wouldn't they?

Obviously the amounts are extremely small but just wondered at what time figures can be taken to be finalised

Yea, they did that to me a couple months ago - wrote down around 1%, supposedly finalized it, and then an additional ninety cents was taken out a couple weeks later. So I guess some months are more final than others.

That's the new Adsense platform. YOU pay THEM to run their ads on your site. You must have gotten a click ;)

Before the payment they took some money out of my already finalized earnings marking it as "other debit", now that the money is in the bank they took some out again marking as "invalid activity" :-/

The amount is not great, it's less than one percent, but the thing that its there bugs me.

So this is the real thing. You make some money then they finalize it by taking some percentage off of it (from 3 to 11% in my case), then they take some money again marking as OTHER, and finally they tell you that you owe them... heh... We should be glad that they don't count interest on the money we owe.

This wouldn't be ridiculousness if everything was clear, like we took some money from you and gave it to George from Georgetown because someone from Russia clicked on his ad and bounced back... Then I would be happy thinking that George is happy too :)

I also have a negative balance of a few euros.

Sorry less than 0.1%. And I don't see any minus(-) sign, just when I click on details it says "Amount owed"...

Yes, Yes Massah Salaam oh Mr. Google we obey.

I'll leave it at that and won't expand upon it.
