What does "average DAU" mean and how is it calculated?
Average Daily Active Users (DAU) is the sum of the unique players that log into your games each day in a given calendar month, divided by the number of days in that month. For example, if 10,000 users played your game(s) in a 30-day month, then your average DAU would be just over 300 (334).
It is important to note that average DAU is per user and not per game/content. For example, if you created both Farmers’ Market and Bombs Away, your average DAU would be calculated using the following:
- Player A and Player B both play Farmers’ Market = 2 DAU
- Player A plays Farmers’ Market and Player B plays Bombs Away = 2 DAU
- Player A plays both Farmers’ Market and Bombs Away = 1 DAU
Is there a minimum number of average DAU required for a monthly payout?
To qualify for a payout in a given month, you must exceed 50 average DAU for that month. Creators with below 50 average DAU will not receive a payout. Please note that if you are below the threshold, it still resets at the beginning of the following month and does not "roll over".
