Dacast Paywall Payout: How Long Does it Take?

Dacast collects all payments via a secure paywall before users have access to your content and credits your account with a balance stating revenue earned.

To request a payout, you must select an amount of at least $100 USD. If it is the very first time you ask for a payout, a 35 days delay will occur, as per our terms of service.

Please note that payment might be declined if your viewers are requesting refunds. We will work to negotiate this issue first if you do not want to issue a refund. However, you have the option to settle and pay the refunds from your payout if that is what you prefer.

Types of Monetization Available with Dacast

There are three methods of monetization offered by Dacast: SVOD, TVOD, and AVOD.

SVOD is a subscription-based method that allows viewers to have unlimited access to a video library for as long as their subscription lasts. Subscriptions are typically weekly, monthly or quarterly.

TVOD is most commonly known as pay-per-view. As the name suggests, viewers pay for what they want to watch.

AVOD refers to ad-based monetization. You have the option to serve ads on your content. Ads are funded by your advertisers, so rather than paying out of pocket, your viewers pay for the content with a minute or so of their time.
