Can I temporarily hold my AdSense payments?
Yes, you can temporarily hold your payments by setting a self-hold in your account. Setting a self-hold will stop Google from sending you payments, but you'll continue to accrue earnings. Provided that your account balance has reached the payment threshold, we'll issue a single payment in the payment cycle after you remove the hold.
To set or remove a hold:
- Sign in to your account.
- On the Home tab, visit the Account settings page.
- In the Payment settings section, click "edit self-hold".
- To set a self-hold, check the Hold payments box. (To end a hold and resume regular payments, uncheck the box.)
- Click Apply.
Please note that any changes made to your hold status after the 15th of any month won't take effect until the following payment cycle. Try to update your settings before the 15th in order to avoid this delay.
