How your TikTok Series payment is calculated

You can select the price per Series to decide the payout amount you’d like to receive from us for a Series sold by TikTok.

You can find more details on payment in your account.

How to view your payment on TikTok

On the first day of every month, you’ll receive a notification with the payment accumulated from the previous month.

To view your payment:
1. In the TikTok app, tap Profile at the bottom.
2. Tap the Menu button at the top.
3. Tap Settings and privacy.
4. Tap Balance, then tap Monthly earnings

How to receive your payment from TikTok

If the total amount of payment accumulated on your account from a Series is equal to or exceeds $50 (or equivalent local currency), your payment will be sent to you automatically on the 15th of each month.

1. Before your payment is sent to you, you’ll be prompted to set up or link your existing PayPal account, complete a tax form, and verify your identity.

Make sure to provide the required information, as otherwise you may be subject to mandatory withholding and be ineligible to participate in TikTok Series.

2. In applicable jurisdictions, VAT registered creators must issue a proper VAT invoice to TikTok.

To simplify this requirement, if you read and accept the TikTok Self-billing Agreement, TikTok can issue the invoices on your behalf. If you’re a taxable person, you’ll be prompted to complete the self-billing agreement before your first payment is sent to you.
