I've just received a payment for earning made in February 2012. I was expecting nearly $300 more than I received. My earnings for February show me what I made (in the Reports), then when I check the Payments section, it shows my balance at the end of the February for the amount I received in the payment (which as explained, is about $300 less than the February report).
Can anyone tell me why those two numbers would be so drastically off? I've been an AdSense user for 7 years now - I don't recall payments ever being off like this.
Any chance I'm reading the wrong info on my earnings? I'm really not sure where to turn for help on this. I was expecting more money than was deposited and now just a bit thrown off by it.
