How AdSense determines the exchange rate for your earnings

We convert advertisers’ payments from their currencies to your payment currency using the prevailing market rate from the day before the ads were shown. We get our rates from major banks, and other industry-recognized rate sources.

For example, let's say you get paid in euros, and an advertiser purchases ads on your site using U.S. dollars on August 15. We'll then calculate your earnings using the dollar to euro exchange rate from the end of August 14.

Note that if your bank account is denominated in a different currency to your payment currency, then when you get paid your bank may apply their own currency conversion (using their own exchange rate) or even reject your AdSense payment. In either case, you should contact your bank directly for more information.

The exchange rate for performance reports

We convert currencies in performance reports in the same way. This means that reports in your payment currency should reflect the amount you'll be paid. Reports in a different currency reflect the amount you would be paid if you were paid in that currency.

When viewing performance reports in a different currency to your payment currency, the reported values (based on daily exchange rates) might not match your own calculations, if you're exchanging your earnings into that currency using a later exchange rate.
