We get a monthly report from YouTube that gives the exact figures, which we use to update our system. We can't do this in real time. If you are a member of one of our MCN (multi-channel network) partners, you'll get reports and payment from them. We appreciate your patience!
We want to make sure your videos are immediately monetized. The best way to achieve that is when you arrive at step 3 of the upload process that asks you to authorize us to upload the video automatically to your channel.
Many issues arise when you choose not to do this -- copyright claims, strikes, and the like. If you do authorize us, you will get a pop-up message from YouTube stating, "Authorization will be used exclusively for this purpose (uploading). WATH will never have access to your Google login credentials." We cannot manage your channel or access it in any way. Don't fear the automatization of uploading! Also, you can schedule exactly when you want your video to get published.
If you uploaded it to our system properly, we are tracking and monetizing it. The reason you don't see anything is because all that data is not in real time. We base those figures from the monthly YouTube report.
If you sent us links to claim instead of uploading to our site, you won't see the videos listed in your account for the same reason, however the process takes longer since we have to manually match the video to your account and the composition.
We love our international artists and want to make sure when we wire you your money it goes to the proper place. Your IBAN (International Bank Account Number) goes in the "Wire/Routing" field.
We are only able to claim older videos that have 1000+ views. When we claim videos already on your channel, we not only have to wait for the monthly report from YouTube and ingest that data, we also have to match the video to the song and your account. It is a manual process and we try to get this done in a timely manner. The biggest thing to remember is that if WATH has claimed it, it will be monetized properly and you'll see the video in your dashboard in due course.
