Check your AdSense account type

Can I change my account type?

AdSense offers two account types: Business and Individual. There's no difference in the services or payment structure between Individual and Business accounts. Business account payments will be made payable to the Company Name, while Individual accounts are paid out to the payee name of the account holder.

To check your account type:

  1. Sign in to your AdSense account.
  2. Click the gear icon and select Payments.
  3. In the sidebar, click Payee profile.
  4. In the "Account type" section, you can see your account type.
Note that Rapida and Western Union Quick Cash payment options are only available to publishers with individual-type accounts (not available in all locations).

Can I change my account type?

Once you submit your application as a Business or Individual, you can't change your account type. If you need a different account type, you'll have to go through the process of closing your current account and opening a new account with your preferred account type.
