Google Adsense Update Payment options

Posted By Darren Rowse 16th of March 2005 Adsense 7

After months and months of lobbying by publishers Google Adsense have just announced changes to their payment system! Their site has just been updated with the new details. Now they offer checks to be sent in local currencies to 35 countries (listed below) and Electronic Funds Transfer to 15 countries (BETA).

For those receiving checks via mail they are also offering a Secured Express Delivery option that increases both the speed and security of delivery. Using this system will get your your check in 5-7 business days. This service will cost publishers if they choose it in many countries (ie in Australia it would cost me $24).

This is great news for publishers (of those countries included) and is long overdue. Funny how it comes out in the same week that Yahoo! seem to be on a publicity drive for their new contextual ad system for small publishers!

Countries included in the new local currency payment option are:

Australia

Austria

Belgium

Canada

China

Denmark

Finland

France

Germany

Great Britain

Greece

Hong Kong

India

Indonesia

Ireland

Italy

Japan

Luxembourg

Mexico

Morocco

Netherlands

New Zealand

Norway

Philippines

Portugal

Saudi Arabia

Singapore

South Africa

South Korea

Spain

Sweden

Switzerland

Thailand

Turkey

United States

  1. Yeeeah – so before my first one arives they change it, great. :o)

  2. Oh – and it is not really that much of a big list, as we have several countries with Euros.

  3. Can you believe they put Indonesia in there? Indonesia? Is it such a revenue-sucking country that Google has spoiled it that much by giving a “local currency” option?

    And I don’t even see Russia. Which is strange.

  4. I agree with Hendy Irawan’s comment about not seeing Russia in the list.
    Ture that.

    i have yet to receive a check, but if i were to choose to be paid in local currency, does that mean (example) 1USD = 1AUSD , or does the exchange rates apply?

    Hmmm.

  5. exchange rates apply

  6. I will die if they apply a USD 1 => IDR 1 rate !!!!!

    However, if anyone wants IDR 1 => USD 1 ….. I’ll be happy to provide the rupiahs :-)

  7. Hey thats good to know. Thanks for the information.
    It was quit helpful ;o)

    Cheers!
