Slightly longer answer :)

The points are the same for each round's win as in singles. ie, win a QF in a masters series event, you get 225 points in singles. Each player gets 225 for a doubles QF win there (so technically the points can be considered not shared, I suppose) ..

The prize money for each round in the ATP prize money tables are roughly 40-50 percent of singles prize money. i.e, if reaching a singles SF pays $100K, reaching the doubles SF pays probably pays around $40K .. Now, this money is truly shared and half goes to each player. So for the same event, a doubles SF gets a player probably some $20K, about 1/5th or 1/6th of what you get for a singles win (it used to be 1/4th or slightly better earlier, but ATP has not accounted for inflation in doubles unlike in singles)

Remembering doubles players must pay for the coach, hotels and stuff... (so they don't get 20K per capita) it's hard to be rich doubles player.
so sick of love songs.
