Direct Publisher Ad Revenue?

Hi,

Our Direct Publisher channel has been live since February. Where can we see how much ad revenue we’ve generated via ads that appear on our channel? I see a transactions area within “My Developer Info” but no transactions appear. That said, ads do appear on our channel, so I can confirm they are being served. We are just not being paid a rev split. We have a Paypal account submitted for payments, we submitted all our business documentation, etc.

Thanks

Re: Direct Publisher Ad Revenue?

I've been thinking of compiling an all-inclusive post and asking they make it a sticky.  To answer your question you can email: publisherAdServices@roku.com and include your channel name and email address for the account. Please ask to receive reporting and let them know if you'd like daily/weekly/monthly reports. It will show you total ad impressions for the period, unfortunately it won't give exact $ amounts. You can gauge from the impressions ($14 per 1000) an estimate, then factor in the 60/40 split. I believe payment is paid out on a quarterly basis and pays 1 quarter behind (So Q1 will pay out sometime after June 30th). This is what I heard, although maybe that is only for the first month. The payout has to be over $100, otherwise I suppose it's retained until the payout period when it reaches $100.

For those looking to signup for RAF please email enrollment@roku.com and include your channel name and email address on the account and your paypal email address. If you wish to save a step you can probably include a W9 in your email because that's essentially all they need.

RAF is only available to US only channels. I believe only 1 ad is shown per break.
