Why did my test deposit fail?

  There are a number of reasons why your test deposit might fail. We have provided a detailed list below.

  • Incorrect bank account number or bank codes (the required information will vary by country)
  • Issues with your account type (we currently do not support savings accounts in the United States)
  • Bank account is closed
  • 'Account holder name' was not EXACTLY the same as the name on your bank account
  • Bank is not located in the same country entered in your AdSense account
  • Bank account is not in the local currency of the country entered in your AdSense account
  • Bank account is not set up to receive incoming ACH/EFT
  • Either an IBAN number was entered where domestic banking information was required or domestic banking information was entered where an IBAN number was required
  • Your bank code changed as the result of a recent bank merger

If your test deposit has failed, you'll see a Deposit failed message on the page on which you submitted your bank account. If you see this message, we encourage you to re-enter your bank information to make sure there wasn't a typo. You may also wish to contact your bank to confirm the exact details that you need to submit and try again.

EFT payments are currently only available to a number of countries. Though we may offer EFT to other countries in the future, we do not have a date for when this may become available.
