First, please ensure that you have submitted all of the necessary tax documentation to Qualcomm to enable our Product Support team to set your company up as a vendor in our corporate payable system. If you have not yet submitted a W-9 (for U.S.-based developers) or a W-8BEN (for foreign developers), please email the documentation to

Also please understand that Qualcomm's normal business practice is to bill the operators on a monthly basis for the applicable fees with payment terms ranging from Net 30 to 90 days after the date of the invoice. When Qualcomm receives payment from the operator, Qualcomm will issue payments to the developers on or around the 15th day of the following month. In order to determine the expected Developer payment date you would first need to be able to determine the invoice due date, which is calculated by Invoice Date plus customer terms. Unfortunately, we are unable to disclose the Operators' terms to our Developers. The actual Developer payment date is also affected by whether the Operator pays QC on-time, early, or late. However, we can tell you that the time from date of Operator invoice until date of Developer payment typically ranges from 75-105 days.
