What's the difference between earnings and payments?

Earnings are the revenue that you accrue through your participation in AdSense. Your earnings will go through several stages during the payment timeline:

  • Estimated earnings – earnings accrued throughout the month. Appears in your Home and Reports pages.
  • Finalised earnings – total earnings with all invalid activity deducted. Appears in your Home and "Payments" pages.
  • Earnings – same as finalised earnings in your "Payments" page
  • Balance – your total account balance including all your finalised earnings, debits and credits.

For detailed information about when you will receive a payment for your AdSense earnings, read about our payment timelines.
