Domestic payees (within the United States) have three payment options:

  • ACH (U.S. direct deposit) – this option has a transfer time of 1-5 business days, and requires a $5 minimum in royalty payments to be issued.
  • Physical (paper) checks– transfer time depends on the postal service but is approximately 15 business days, and requires a $100 minimum in royalties to be issued.
    • Please note: A paper check is valid for six months, and there’s no charge for the first replacement check (if it gets lost or expires). If you need a replacement check, reach out to The MLC Support team here.
  • Wire transfer – transfer time is 1-5 business days, and requires a $250 minimum in royalty payments to be issued.
