Hi all! There’s been a slight delay with some of the manual steps in the earnings calculation this month - you should start seeing daily earnings updating again on your dashboard from tomorrow afternoon (Melbourne time).

As with previous months, the date range on the report is the first thing to update - followed by gradual changes to the daily earnings totals. We have a little over a week of calculations to run, so the full process will take a few hours to complete.

Our Finance team is looking at a process change that should remove this pause each month in future, so you’ll see a continuously updated Earnings Report (similar to October).

Manual sounds scary :scream:

It’s just an approvals step from our Finance team, which will be now issued at a different point in the cycle :slight_smile:

The issue with the timing of this step (affecting the November dashboard reports) is that it can delay the start of a new month’s earnings calculations. That process is being changed to remove that bottleneck, so we’ll be able to continue running the daily calculation every 24hrs, without having a backlog to process at the start of each month.

Thanks for clarification

Thank you, for keeping us informed) And also, good news about working on bottleneck.

Hey!
Please explain to us. Why are those items that were added in the month of October displayed in the earnings statistics for September?

Because the Earning statistics shows:

“Here’s what you earned from subscriptions that started on 1st of September up to the end of 30th September 2021 UTC

and for example, subscriber who has paid 1 month on Elements on 5th September he also can download (for example) your item which was added on 2nd October.

Hi. It’s afternoon Melbourn time and no update.

Strewth… let them finish their lunch! They’ll all be out in the woop woop grabbing a chook sambo, or down the bottle-o filling their eskys with bonzer goon. It might be cactus now, but I’m sure they’ll sort it later.

The daily earnings calculation starts at 12pm each day, so it’s currently underway - when we have a backlog of several days of usage and item earnings data to process, it can run for several hours.

I haven’t heard of any delays from that team, but I’ll update this thread if we expect the dashboard to take longer to update.

I cant see “October” in drop down menu of my https://elements-contributors.envato.com/ account and all October data in Sign In | Envato Account also included only Markets sales on corresponding days, no Elements data, looks weird

That’s slightly different to the start-of-month delay mentioned in this thread, and it’s caused by the way that Subscriber Share revenue is calculated for Elements - there’s a detailed breakdown of that process here.

In the November earnings payout, you’ll see item usage earnings from Elements subscriptions that started between September 1st and September 30th. We need to see all item usage (licences/downloads) from those users, in order to divide their subscription revenue between the relevant authors.

e.g. Customer A started their subscription on September 1st. By October 1st (one month after they started), we know all the details of what they have licensed.

Customer B started a subscription on September 25th. We won’t know all the items they have licensed in their first month until one month later, on October 25th.

Subscriber Share calculations require data on all downloads from every user who started a subscription that month, and each user has their own revenue period (one month from their starting date). That’s the reason why daily earnings data shown at https://author.envato.com/reports has a 33-day delay, as we need all subscriptions started in that period to complete a full month before we know the total value of those licenses.

I read all FAQ and what i see there - " When will my first day of earnings become available?

We aim to publish your first earnings amount by the 6th business day of the month . Before this time, the month will not be available in the drop down menu on your earnings report. For example, for the June earnings month, you will be able to select June on your earnings report after the 6th business day of July. This initial calculation will cover the first week of June." It is way more than 6 of November and no updates. Last month it began updating on 6 days. This month is delay. Let’s see, thanks for clarification
