From the YPN FAQ on "When do I get paid?"

1) "Forty-five days after the close of the calendar month, your adjusted revenue becomes your available balance"

2) "the revenue you accrue in the month of June will be adjusted and transferred to your available balance in July"

Statement 1 says June revenue would be transfered to available balance no sooner than August 15th. Statement 2 says June revenue would be transfered to available balance "in July"

Which is it? I've asked YPN Support but two weeks later I still am waiting for an explanation other than a recital of the already contradictory FAQ.

Am I the only one of the YPN beta publishers wondering about this?

I'm not a beta tester, but on the list for later this year. This concerns me significantly. If they can't get the payments straight in beta, I feel sorry for those who jumped ship from Adsense. You take a risk and they reward you with payment double speak and uncertainty? When I display the ads I expect to get paid, and get paid on time. This FAQ at 45 days is much later than Adsense. By the time the check arrives it would be 50-60 days. That is slow pay in my book. Wayyyyy to slow for a small business owner.

I don't think so. Glad I didn't go beta with them.

FYI, to close the loop, I heard from YPN on this.

1) "Forty-five days after the close of the calendar month, your adjusted revenue becomes your available balance"

is true

2) "the revenue you accrue in the month of June will be adjusted and transferred to your available balance in July"

is false

I think the difference might be because of the transfer of earnings to your YSM account - it would make sense if they allow you to transfer the $ to your YSM account before they send the check, gives you the opportunity to transfer funds before they cut the check.

No, I think you can do a YSM transfer as soon as the money hits your available balance but can't get a check until after that sometime. We'll have to wait til Oct 15th to see for sure.
