When are royalty payments made?

Royalty payments are made as agreed upon in your contract. Most of our contracts are either annual (January-December) or semi-annual (January-June and July-December). Annual contracts generally are paid in March each year. Semi-annual contracts generally are paid in either March and September or April and October.

How will royalty payments be made?

Royalty payments are made by electronic transfer, which is safe and secure. Also, electronic transfer allows you to access your royalty earnings more quickly.
