The Payout summary shows you details about the money you've earned with Microsoft. It also lets you know when you'll receive payments and how much you'll be paid.
If you sell products in the Azure Marketplace, you'll also see info on successful payouts in the Payout summary. For details, see Microsoft Azure Marketplace Participation Policies and the Microsoft Azure Marketplace Publisher Agreement.
To be eligible for payout, your proceeds must reach the payment threshold of $50. For details about the payment threshold see this page and review the app developer agreement.
If you're looking for support regarding payouts, including configuring payout accounts, missing payouts, putting payouts on hold, or anything else, contact support here.

Export data page
Follow these instructions to export data.
