It goes into my bank account, right? When does it show up? As soon as someone buys it? Or does it all like get transferred at the end of a time period (ie.month) or what?

They pay monthly, but in arrears, approximately 60 days after the end of the calendar month in which the sales occurred. For example, for sales in this month, you'll get paid around the end of January or beginning of February next year.

If they owe you less than a certain amount, they hold it over until next month. The amount depends on the currency and payment method. For direct deposit to your bank account, it's normally 10 of whatever the currency is. For payment by cheque (check), it's normally 100 of the currency.

If you gave them your bank details, they'll try to pay you that way. If the account doesn't accept electronic payments, or doesn't accept them from the country in which the sales occurred, they'll send a cheque.
