Wire transfer payout details

Balance requirements

Your earned balance must meet the minimum payout amount of 100 USD in order for you to be eligible for a payout at the end of your payment cycle. Unless otherwise indicated in your account, there is no maximum payout amount.

Payouts currency

Google issues wire transfer payouts in USD, though your financial institution may exchange these funds to your local currency in order to deposit the money into your bank account. Contact your financial institution for more information about exchange rates.

If your financial institution offers the ability to open accounts in USD, this option is preferred.

Payouts for accounts in Russia can only be paid to bank accounts denominated in USD.

Payouts schedule

Wire transfer payouts follow the same payment schedule as other merchant payouts.

Wire transfer fees

Fees for wire transfers are determined by your financial institution and may range from $0 to $50 or more. Contact your financial institution for details on any fees associated with receiving wire payments in USD.

Special considerations for developers in Argentina

Developers in Argentina receiving payments by wire transfer may be asked by their banks to present supporting documents when receiving payments.

Instructions can be found in Communication "A" 6037, which details the bank forms to be filed, along with an exchange ticket. These compliance requirements may be required by banks, regardless of the amount received.

Please contact your bank to verify what documentation you will be asked to provide. You may be asked to issue an invoice according to the local tax rules in Argentina. Your tax advisor can guide you through creating such an invoice.
