When will my PIN arrive?
We'll print and send your PIN by standard mail several days after your account balance reaches the verification threshold
for the first time. PINs typically arrive within 2-4 weeks, but may take longer depending on your location.
If we've asked you to verify your identity
, we won't send your PIN until after you've successfully completed identity verification.
When do I need to enter my PIN?
You'll have four months from the date your first PIN is generated to enter it in your account. If you haven't entered it after four months, we'll stop showing ads on your pages.
