Settlement Report

For any month when a remittance is to be transferred to you, your can review:

  • The processing status, estimated amounts of remittance and remittance processing deductions. 
  • When the month has one or more settled sales of your paid apps or in-app items, you can review: the total amounts of purchases, cancelations, resulting revenue, deductions, and your earnings (in local currency and USD).
     

In reports, data is grouped by country and sub-grouped by payment method. In detail popups, data is grouped by country and sub-grouped by purchase type (app or in-app item). 
 

Remittance Information

The transfer and amount of remittances is based on your location:

For South Korean sellers:

  • You are sent a remittance every month.
  • The amount is based on your earnings for all sales that were settled that month.
     

For all other sellers:

  • You are sent a remittance when the total of your accumulated earnings for the reported month and previous months exceeds your minimum transfer amount.
  • The amount is based your accumulated earnings. 
     

Settled Sales Information for the Reported Month

  • Each report includes sales that have been settled during the month:
    • Purchases made and payment finalized in the reported month.
    • Purchases made in previous months and payment finalized in the reported month.

Settlement Status Current state of your remittance for this month
 

Estimated Transfer Amount

Business Type

Kind of business arrangement governed by each distribution country that exists among you, Samsung, and supporting third-party entities:

Agent - You sell your apps and in-app items to your customers. You are responsible for reporting and paying the European Union value added tax (VAT). Samsung Electronics charges you a commission.

Commissionaire - Samsung buys your apps and in-app items from you. Samsung sells them to customers. Samsung reports and pays the European Union VAT, which is deducted from your income.

In countries with Commissionaire business agreements, the adjusted amounts do not include taxes, which you are responsible for paying. In all other countries, adjusted amounts do include taxes.

Depending on the applied tax rate of a country and the fee levied by a phone carrier, you may generate lower net income from phone bill payments than from credit card payments. 

It may take up to six months for some phone carriers to conclude phone bill settlements. Therefore, the sales summaries show preliminary values based on expected fees and average accounts receivable, which may differ from the actual settled amounts. 
 

Payment (USD)

Your earnings in U.S. dollars for the reported month

For each individual purchase (sales) amount, its USD equivalent is based on the exchange rate at the time of purchase. Account Amount (USD) is the total of the individual USD equivalents.
