Earnings from orders on MyFonts are paid monthly.
Earnings from orders on all other Monotype channels — such as Fonts.com, FontShop, Linotype, and offline orders — are paid quarterly.
You can see the estimated date of each payment in the Payments Dashboard of the Foundry Platform. If you have an upcoming payment, you'll see a row in the table with the estimated date and amount for a particular payment. We cannot send payments on demand outside of the stated payment schedule.
Earnings are calculated monthly and paid monthly around the middle of the month. You can expect to be paid within 45 days after the last day of the month, provided you meet the minimum amount associated with your selected payment method.

Legacy E-commerce Site Changes.
On August 30, 2023, we announced plans to consolidate our direct commerce sales platforms around its flagship e-commerce site MyFonts.com. Our e-commerce sales platforms Linotype, FontShop, and Fonts.com will be phased out over the next year and customers will be transitioned to MyFonts.com.
As the sites are phased out, they will also be phased out of your quarterly royalty reports. You will still have access to your order history from the legacy sites on Foundry Platform.
