This is seen by many people, so that's not a statistical fluctuation, rather some kind of bug on Google side.
For the last few days people are observing (and reporting on Google forums) that their totals since the last payments went down. For example - yesterday morning it was over $200, now it is about half that, about $100.
Interestingly, totals for May and June seem to be still correct (or at least they don't show unexpected drop). At the moment my May total is larger than my 'since last payment'.
Let's hope it will be solved on Monday.
Yesterday, the earnings since last payment dropped dramatically. A few hours later it showed the correct amount. Now it has again dropped significantly.
Glad to know that it is more likely a bug. So long as the payment is for the correct amount.
"June 22, 2009: The amount displayed when you generate a 'Since last payment' report is currently incorrect, but our engineers are working to resolve the issue as soon as possible. Please be assured that this is only a display issue, and that you're being properly credited for your earnings.
Work-around: In the meantime, you can still calculate how much you've generated since your last payment. Generate an Advanced Report for your earnings from the current month and then add the total unpaid balance listed on your Payment History page. Thanks for your patience as we work to resolve this issue."
(Maybe that's the reason when you have accidentally left the "all time" option on the front page it brings the system to it's knees with all of the publishers clicking on it. Maybe a "for all products" option in the advanced reports would be loved.)
