Payment Terms

Payments to publishers will be made in US dollars for all earnings for a publisher account. Payments will not be made at a property (site or app) level. The monthly earnings of a publisher against an account, provided the account qualifies to be paid, will be paid within 60 days of the end of that month. Payment frequency will be monthly.

For example, publisher earnings in the month of January (January 1 – January 31) will be made in the month of April of the same year.

Modes and Thresholds to Qualify

InMobi supports the following payment modes:

Electronic Funds Transfer to a System-Verified Bank Account

  • InMobi can pay accrued publisher earnings, subject to qualification, by Electronic Funds Transfer. To do this, the details of your bank account where payment is to be received should be verified on the InMobi portal.
  • For bank accounts in countries other than India, to qualify for payments by electronic funds transfer, the accrued unpaid earning need to exceed USD 300.
  • For electronic funds transfers to bank accounts in India, the accrued unpaid earning need to exceed USD 50 to qualify.
  • All unpaid earnings will roll over to the next payment cycle and come up for qualification again. Accrued earnings will again be compared against the minimum amount.

PayPal Transfer to Verified PayPal Accounts

  • InMobi can pay accrued publisher earnings, subject to qualification, through PayPal. To do this, the PayPal profile where payment is to be received should verified on the InMobi portal.
  • For publishers (outside India), to qualify for payments through PayPal, the accrued unpaid earning needs to exceed USD 50. The minimum threshold to make payments through PayPal is independent of the country in which the PayPal beneficiary resides, or where the profile was created.
  • Publishers from India cannot be paid using PayPal.
  • All unpaid earnings will roll over to the next payment cycle and come up for qualification again, wherein the accrued earnings shall be compared against the minimum amount.
