Why do Unity use an automated system for Asset Store payouts?


  • I am an Asset Store Publisher
  • I want to understand the reasoning behind the payout system


In March 2019 we switched to an automated payout system. Prior to this, the payouts had to be completed manually.


We use an automated payout system for a number of reasons.

First, our pre-March 2019 payout system was manual, so the new system speeds up internal processes and, what matters most to you, provides more regular payouts.

Second, we want to centralize our payment system in the Unity ecosystem (it will be accessible under your Unity ID).

Finally, we now require basic tax information (for example, we need to know if we are paying an individual or a company).

More Information

This information is accurate for the March 2019 payout onwards. Februay 2019 and prior payouts were not in an automated system and subject to some delays.
