Intro to AdSense payments
1. Provide your tax information (not required in all locations)
Depending on your location, we may be required to collect tax-related information. For more information, see how to submit your tax information to Google.
2. Confirm your payee name and address
Since Personal Identification Numbers (PINs), which are described below, are sent to the postal address in your account, it's important to confirm the accuracy of your payment address and payee name. If you need to correct any information, you can follow these instructions to change your payee name or change your payment address.
3. Select your form of payment
When your earnings have reached the payment method selection threshold, you can select your form of payment. Depending on your payment address, there may be several forms of payment available to you, including Bank transfer, Bank transfer via Single Euro Payments Area (SEPA), wire transfer, cheques and Western Union Quick Cash. Find out how to set up your form of payment.
4. Verify your identity (not required in all locations)
Depending on your location, we might need to verify your identity using information like your name, address or date of birth. If you are required to do this, you typically won't be asked to verify your address until after you've successfully verified your identity.
5. Verify your address
When your earnings have reached the address verification threshold, we'll post a Personal Identification Number (PIN) to the payee address in your AdSense account. You must enter this PIN into your AdSense account before we can issue any payments. Your PIN will be sent by standard post and may take up to 2-3 weeks to arrive. For more information about PINs, see the Address (PIN) verification overview.
6. Meet the payment threshold
If your current balance has reached the payment threshold by the end of the month, a 21-day payment processing period begins. After the processing period has ended, we'll issue you a payment. Find out more about payment timelines.
If your current balance hasn’t yet reached the payment threshold, your finalised earnings will roll over to the following month and your balance will accrue until the threshold has been met.
You can see a daily summary of your estimated earnings on your Home page. For more details, you can track your estimated AdSense earnings on the Performance reports page in your account. There's also important information included in your "Payment receipt", which is linked from the "Transactions" page.
The "Transactions" page tracks the status of previously issued payments, as well as monthly account calculations. You can see earnings credited to your account as well as any adjustments made as separate line items on this page. Once your payment has been issued, you'll see it listed as an "Automatic payment" link.
