Several competitive Fortnite players allege they haven’t been paid their winnings yet and Epic Games responded to those claims and more in a new blog post.
With Epic Games leaving so much money up for grabs for players to earn on a weekly basis, many players have thrown their hat into the ring to win a quick buck.
However, many players are claiming they haven’t received their payments from Epic Games, leading to them to create a response.
Payment improvements are coming
According to Epic, improvements to the payment process are coming and they will give updates on when players can now expect their money.
On top of that, a more intuitive landing page is being created so players will much more easily be able to track their earned money. This includes Epic sending out email updates and making the tax information process all available in one spot.
The above image gives a look at what to expect with the new payment flow, making it much easier to tell when your money will arrive.
Epic Games mentions that if you won any money before April 2019, you’ll still have to use the previous payment flow, so you’ll be without all the new added bells and whistles.

For new Fortnite competitors, it sounds like you won’t have to worry about Epic losing track of your payments anymore.
While this isn’t a direct response to complaints among players, it does help alleviate many of the concerns players had.
With thousands of dollars being offered each week, it’s important to make sure there’s a fluid payment process and it looks like Epic Games is working towards fixing that.
