How Payments Work
Royalties are distributed monthly by direct deposit and quarterly, at the end of March, June, September, and December by cheque.
Direct deposits are issued monthly for accounts with a balance of $100 or more, and quarterly for accounts with a balance of $10 or more.
Quarterly cheques are only issued when the royalties payable to you reach $100 or more. “If your royalties due are less than $100, we hold them until they reach the threshold, at which time we will issue a payment.“
