I always get exactly the amount stated in the payment tab in admob panel.
Are you sure it’s not some fee for international bank transfer? Do you have any information in the payment tab about bad clicks or something like that?
@Magnesus i don’t think it’s problem of bank fee, cause avradu said he sees much lower amount in transaction tab. I believe bank fee would be substracted from that amount.
@avradu1984 you can contact admob, click question mark in admob console (top right corner of screen), then on next site (admob help) there is “contact us” link also in top right corner.
Also, from official help:
What’s the difference between estimated and finalized earnings?
The estimated earnings that you see on the Home page are estimates of your recent account activity. These earnings aren’t finalized until the end of the month and won’t necessarily reflect the amount you’ll ultimately be paid.
Finalized earnings are accurate earnings amounts that include all revenue you will be paid for validated clicks and impressions. These amounts are equal to the current balance found on on your Account > Payments page. After our earnings records are processed and verified by the 2nd of the month, your current balance from the previous month is posted to the Payments page.
I have same problem with you, I found a big problem just a moment ago, when I check my balance report. I just find out that my last payment was about 80% off compare to my feb 2015 earning that has shown in my admob account.
Now I send my problem to admob support ( via email and contact us link ), waiting for reply
I have sometime seen under payment tab https://apps.admob.com/#account/payments:history
we find entry like
“Invalid Traffic - AdMob Applications - AdWords Ads” with amount they have deducted before releasing payment, but for me it is usually in range of USD 1 to 10,
So please check and see if they show some entry like above?
I received a reply from Admob saying the cut was because of invalid activity.
This is weird because I haven’t updated my games since beginning of January so accidental clicks shouldn’t have increased.
CTR across February was steady each day, ranging from 0.8% to 1.4%. There were 3 days with “spikes” in eCPM, when eCPM was about twice higher than the normal days, but since the CTR is the same as all the other days, it doesn’t make sense why that would be invalid activity.
I hope the same thing doesn’t happen with the earnings from March.
