How Google AdSense publishers get paid

Payment threshold depends on type of currency chosen to display the AdSense earning in publisher account. For example, it is $100 for U.S. Dollars and €70 for Euro etc. The finalized earning can be little less than the live display of earning of last month. This is because Google validates the accuracy of earning at the end of each month which involves detailed activities on your account.
