One of the challenges faced by Nigeria Adsense Publishers is the payment option.
The only payment option available for Nigeria Adsense Publishers is via Check/Cheque.
The irritating part of the payment via cheque method is that I have to wait for a minimum of 21 days before the bank clears the cheque.
This morning, I received a message from Google that there is an upcoming updates to my Adsense account in respect to the mode of payment.
Read the full message below:
We’d like to let you know about important upcoming changes affecting your payment options.
As you may have heard, we’re currently rolling out improvements to the Payments page in AdSense. The upgrades are designed to provide you with a better, faster payments experience, and your account will be upgraded shortly.
After this upgrade, we will offer the option to receive payments by international bank transfer. Bank transfer is a fast, secure and reliable alternative to receiving payments by cheque.
With this change, we are also simplifying our cheque payment options by discontinuing express delivery secure cheques and courier tracking numbers.
Unlike the secure cheque payment option, Google doesn’t charge a fee to send bank transfer payments. We recommend that you ask your bank about any fees or commissions that they may charge for receiving bank transfers. Visit our Help Centre for full details about receiving payments by bank transfer (https://support.google.com/adsense/answer/3372975). Standard delivery
cheques will remain available.
These changes will only affect payments in future months. If you are scheduled to receive a payment this month, it will be issued using your current form of payment selection.
As part of this upgrade, your earnings will begin to accrue in US Dollars to match your selected payment currency. We’ve switched to US Dollar currency reporting to create a more convenient and intuitive payment experience for you.
You can now customise the performance report currency if you prefer to view reports in a different currency. Learn about changing the reporting currency in our Help Centre (https://support.google.com/adsense/answer/139783).
We’ll send you a future update after the upgrade is complete. We appreciate your patience during this transition period.
The Google AdSense Team
I’m looking forward to seeing Google pay Nigeria Adsense publishers via bank transfer.
What’s your say on this?
