Revenue

You'll find a line chart and table that details the following performance metrics for your forum. This data can be filtered by any date range you'd like using the provided drop down.

  • Ad Revenue: Amount you earned from Disqus advertising

  • Viewable Impressions: How often users scroll down below the fold and see Disqus ads

Payments

Your Payments page will provide additional rows detailing upcoming payments.

Revenue becomes available to be paid out 90 days from the month in which it was earned.

The Upcoming Payment section will display the amount in green that has passed the 90 day mark and is ready to be paid out. The date of the next payment window will appear immediately below the Upcoming Payment amount.

The Unpaid Earnings section will contain all revenue that has been earned but has not yet passed the 90 day mark. Each month's earnings will move from Unpaid Earnings to Upcoming Payment as they they pass the 90 day mark.
