Mediavine pays all payments via our partner Tipalti, which allows publishers to select their preferred payment method.

What is Tipalti? 

We have teamed up with Tipalti, a company that works with clients such as Outbrain, Vimeo, Amazon and many others. 

Tipalti is a Licensed Money Transmitter in 190 countries, via 120 currencies. It is licensed by the Office of Foreign Assets Control, a financial intelligence and enforcement agency of the U.S. Treasury Department. (Translation: Tipalti is safe and secure with your information.)

This partnership allows Mediavine to offer our publishers multiple payment options.

How can I get paid? 

Upon registration with Mediavine, you will select which payment method you prefer and follow the quick, easy and one-time only instructions to complete this process. Please follow these instructions for setting up a Payment Profile

You are able to choose from any of the following payment methods: 

  • PayPal

  • Domestic ACH

  • International ACH

  • U.S. wire transfer

  • International wire transfer

See this document for help choosing a payment method. Please note that some of these payment methods will incur additional fees. 

Will I receive a 1099? 

Mediavine will issue a 1099-MISC for non-PayPal earnings paid out to publishers in the United States.

These forms will be available via email in late January and will come from a service called Tax1099.

Can I change payment methods? 

You may change payment methods at any time. The initial registration process is fast and simple, but you also may go in and edit your preferences at any point. Here's how. 

What if I have more than one site with Mediavine? 

If you have more than one site with Mediavine, you can set up a different Payment Profile for each site, or have them paid together through the same Payment Profile. 

For help, please see this guide to setting up payment profiles for your site.

There is no need to email Tipalti! Your prompt, friendly and helpful Mediavine support team will continue to be your main source for any and all issues that may arise. You can email us anytime at
