How is currency exchange calculated?

The exchange rate in the report reflects the same exchange rate used for the final payment amount reflected in AdSense.

Payment currency is set in a Content Owner’s AdSense account. The currency exchange rate used for your payments and in downloadable reports is the daily exchange rate averaged over the whole month.

Comments This field is blank unless there are previous months’ adjustment payments being paid during the current Payment Month.
