RESOLVED: Windows Dev Center Dashboard – Payout summary issues related to Microsoft Advertising RRS feed

  • Question

  • Update 1/15:  The final item below, "Payout summary does not show any Microsoft Advertising revenue" has been FIXED.  The only case in which a publisher won't see their revenue in Payout summary is if they have not linked their pubCenter account to their Dev Center account.  If you fall into this case, please make sure to link your accounts. 

    Update 12/7:

    Reserved balances were updated on Saturday evening.  I have changed that item to FIXED below.

    Update 12/4:

    The issue related to the incorrect Store fee for November has been fixed.

    I have updated the text below to show which issues are FIXED and which are OPEN.




    We are aware of some issues with the payout data being surfaced in Windows Dev Center Dashboard - Payout summary related to Microsoft Advertising.


    Some issues we’ve seen (developer dependent):

    • FIXED - Duplicate data for Microsoft Advertising earnings in the “Most recent payment” and “Reserved” sections

      • This duplicate issue has been fixed, so you may have witnessed the figures in each section decline

    • FIXED - Payout summary showing store fees for Microsoft Advertising

      • This issues affects only November payout reporting

    • FIXED - Advertising estimated revenue does not match reserved balance. 

      • Reserved balance only contains Microsoft Advertising through November 12.

    • FIXED - Payout summary does not show any Microsoft Advertising revenue


    Teams are engaged and working on the appropriate fixes. As updates become available, they will be added to this post.


    Thank you for your patience as we work on fixing the issues
