What Are the Different Ways You Can Receive Your Adsense Payment?


While I personally would like to see more forms of payment (like PayPal) there are a few ways you can receive your Adsense payment. From the modern style of a bank transfer to the classic paper cheque. But there are a few cons and pros for each method and I will try and explain as many as I can think of for you now...

Cheque Adsense Payment


Cheque Adsense Payment


The biggest drawback with this payment has to be the possibility that the cheque will get lost in the post. It might get damaged in the rain or it might even get something spilt on it. But the bonus is you can receive a nice big cheque at the end of the month (provided you have passed the payment threshold). It's just a good as cash and provided you don't log into your Adsense account all month it will be a mystery as you how much you will be getting. It just makes the whole payment process a little more exciting.

Bank Transfer Adsense Payment (EFT)


Bank Transfer Adsense Payment (EFT)


This is the most commonly used Adsense payment method and by far the quickest. While you will still need to check if EFT payments are available in my country it's by far the best method. The biggest issues with this is that sometimes (albeit very rarely) payments can go missing and it can be a real nightmare to sort out, especially with the lack of customer support with Adsense. Normally if you get one payment all the rest should reach you without hassle.

Bank Transfer Adsense Payment via Single Euro Payments Area (SEPA)


Bank Transfer Adsense Payment via Single Euro Payments Area (SEPA)


You might notice that this is essentially the same thing as an EFT payment which it essentially is. This is more for publishers within the EU and it stands for (Single Euro Payments Area) But it is essentially the same method. Very secure, pretty common and pretty simple to sign up for. While in most countries a small test deposit isn't required there are indeed a few that do.

Wire Transfer Adsense Payment


Wire Transfer Adsense Payment


This method is pretty accepted in most countries around the world and the majority of people outside the US and EU will use this method so it's pretty common. All I will say is this method can be quite expensive as there is usually a percentage fee to be paid. Also, it can take a lot longer than a basic bank transfer.

Western Union Quick Cash Adsense Payment


Western Union Quick Cash Adsense Payment


There are a few countries like Zambia, Slovenia, Pakistan and even North Korea (yes there are indeed thousands of talented Adsense publishers in North Korea) to name a few that will only have this method available to you. While it does mean cold hard cash pretty quickly it also means a fee has to be paid at the Western Union branch you will be picking it up from. While I personally use a bank transfer, this is the method I would probably choose as an alternative, even though I live in a country where it is not my only option.

So there you go, 5 quick method you can receive your monthly Adsense payment. While I would prefer to use Paypal or even Google vouchers for a small bonus it does cover pretty much everyone from almost anywhere in the world. If any more payments methods do get approved wI ill indeed update this post.
