    Help Understanding Info from Payment History Page on Quarterly Sales

    I'm pretty new to having a publishing game, so this is my first time reviewing the quarterly sales from the transaction details page (https://payment.create.msdn.com/Earnings.aspx?partner=) and I had a couple of questions. I navigate through My Business -> Payment History Information and pull the quarterly graph. There is a snippet from the graph below for reference.

    There is a little question mark link for help on the page, but it sends me to an error page and states problem loading page, so I'm guessing the help page is forever lost since the site isn't being maintained?

    1. Why are different rows listed for the same country? For example, I have United States in 2 different rows and United Kingdom in 4 rows. What is the difference between separate rows from the same country?

    2. What does the 0/1 in Points mean? It seems to always be 1 for US/Canada and 0 for other countries. I think maybe this is a relic of when they used to use Microsoft Points and isn't pertinent anymore, but not sure.

    I don't think that those columns have much meaning anymore.

    Points did say 80, 240, 400 in the old days.

    Double entries have always been there. 
    Perhaps it is little corrections that needed to be added in once sales data was checked.

    Hope this helps!

    That link is no longer secure (https://payment.create.msdn.com/Earnings.aspx?partner=).  Anybody know where to go to view earnings now?
