    I got partnered with Machinima 2 weeks ago and I've earn this much right now

    My ESTIMATE EARNINGS 3.jpg and this is my AD PERFORMANCE 4.jpg

    So end of the month I should be getting at least $1000? Its to good to be true. Correct me if im wrong here.

    thanks

    Pretty accurate. Might change by a few dollars at the end of the month. Is that all or did you just want to show off? ;)

    No I am not showing off because when I check on Socialblade I should get around double/triple more than my dashboard amount. So I want to make sure if my YouTube dashboard is the most accurate way to check my earnings. :)

    Also, do I get the earnings from ads or both ads and estimate earnings? sorry im really new to this. As you can tell this will be my first cheque from machinima :D

    Yes your YouTube dashboard is most accurate...Socialblade just takes EVERY view you get and times it by their lower and higher thresholds. YouTube analytics obviously just takes into account your monetized views.

    Take the total estimated earnings number and times it by your revenue percentage. That'd be roughly how much you'd make.

    Hello, thank you.
    But where is my Ad % located at? I can't find it.

    Gross earnings is total earnings from your channel, YouTube then takes their cut from that, that leaves you with your estimated earnings which Machinima will take their cut from. If you are a new partner it will be around 40%-60% so you should get that much of your estimated earnings

    Oh I see, so the estimate earnings will be my earnings? Lets say it says $500 on my Estimate earnings, does that automatically take 40-60% for Machinima? Or do I need to do the maths myself?

    I'm not sure as my network has a dashboard with all the cuts automatically taken out, but to be on the safe side I would assume you need to take Machinimas cut out of your estimated earnings and whats left is yours. You should be able to find your revenue split % in your contract.
