Introducing Brave Payments
In the good old days, publishers created content and ads paid the way. But ad blocking has grown significantly over the last few years. Now over 500 million people use software to stop ads on their mobile and desktop devices.
How does it work?
Readers may choose a monthly contribution amount which is divided among the publisher sites they visit most. As Brave grows, so does your revenue. Here is the best part. Neither the readers nor the publisher need to do anything different. They just keep surfing and you just keep publishing.
Well, one small detail… you do need to collect your cash.
Claim your publisher contributions.
Once a user enables Brave Payments, the Brave browser automatically and anonymously keeps track of the publisher sites each user visits. The more times that a user visits a site, the larger the proportion of the user’s monthly contribution is “ear-marked” for that publisher. When contributions for a publisher exceed $100.00 USD, an email is sent to both the webmaster of the site and the registered domain owner from your WHOIS information. The email explains how to verify the ownership of your website with Brave Software.
Brave Software uses a process similar to verifying a domain name to verify publisher sites. Just follow these steps:
Open the email invitation sent from Brave Software to your webmaster. The email is titled “Brave Publisher Invitation” and includes all of the information needed to verify your site.
The email will direct you to a web page where you will need to confirm your site ownership. The site will guide you through a simple process of adding a new record to your DNS host account. This ensures a secure handshake between Brave Software and you – preventing someone else from receiving your payments.
After verifying your site, you can view the current funds available for withdrawal. If you are ready to receive your funds, you may verify your wallet and submit the necessary tax forms.
Check your wallet balance frequently, and transfer funds to wherever you choose. It’s your money. You earned it! And – once you are verified, we welcome you to add a Brave badge to your site which will help lead your visitors to download Brave.
The new Brave browser blocks the ads and trackers that slow you down, chew up your bandwidth, and invade your privacy. Brave even lets you contribute to your favorite creators automatically.
