Google AdSense which is one of the most popular monetization technique used by Blogger, is always confusing for new users. Despite of new easy to use dashboard, and help pages, there are always questions related to sign up, account approval, account ban, optimization and many more. It’s true, AdSense is a plug and play advertising network, but once you learn everything about it, you will be making a lot, instead of pennies.
This is a question from Adithya:
“Can you tell me how AdSense Pays in India? Do they pay by cheque or through local bank transfer or EFT”?
AdSense Payment in India:
AdSense have different payment options for different countries. They support EFT transfer, Cheque facility and pay by Western union Quick cash. Specially in countries like India and Pakistan, getting an AdSense account is not as easy, as it is in countries like U.S., U.K., Australia. This is mostly due to spam, and fake AdSense accounts in India.
In India, At the time of writing (June 2014), AdSense offers payment via Cheque and EFT, and they convert your earning into INR, and make the payment. Usually, AdSense USD to INR conversion rate is high, so you might not find this an issue. The only thing is, AdSense cheque in India takes time to reach (10-15 days), and it takes another few days for clearance. AdSense team is increasing payment options in many countries, they have already added EFT payment for Indian Publishers. You can follow this guide to configure electronic fund transfer for your Adsense account.
Also, if you are a new AdSense user, here are few things which you should keep in mind:
- While signing up, make sure all details are accurate. (Name, Address)
