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 as the country you entered in your AdSense account
  • Bank account is not in the local currency of the country you 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.

Important information for setting up a Canadian bank account:
View details

When entering your account number, note that the first set of numbers (4 digits) is your branch (or transit) number. The second set (7 digits) is your account number. Also note:

  • If your account number only has 6 digits but the form requires 7, add a 0 to the start. For example, if your account number is 123456, you should enter 0123456.
  • If your branch (transit) number is only 3 digits long, add a 0 in front of the number (for forms, etc.). For example, if your branch number is 101, you should enter 0101.
  • If you need to enter a 5 digit branch (transit) number for a direct deposit or debit form, the 5th digit is a geographical number to be added to the end of your branch (transit) number.

    If you don’t have a check available, you can find the 5th digit of your branch (transit) number based on your geographical location:

    • British Columbia and Yukon: 0
    • Alberta, Northwest Territories and Nunavut: 9
    • Saskatchewan: 8
    • Manitoba and Northwestern Ontario: 7
    • Eastern Ontario including Ottawa and surrounding area: 6
    • Ontario including Toronto and surrounding area: 2
    • Western Quebec including Montreal and surrounding area: 1
    • Eastern Quebec including Labrador: 5
    • New Brunswick: 4
    • Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland (excluding Labrador): 3

    For example, if you're located in Toronto and your branch number is 1001, you should enter 10012 (if your direct deposit/debit form requires a 5th digit).

  • Institution number: The institution number for all TD Canada Trust accounts is 004.
