How To Make Sure You Don't Fail The Adsense Identity Check

There is sadly a glitch in the Adsense identity system that means if you fail the identity test 3 times you will be forever locked in a loop never to be able to open the account and never being able to open a new one. So what can you do? Here are some tips to make sure you don't fail to prove your identity the first time they ask for it, let alone the third...

The First Step is to Click on "Verify Now"

This will then pop up a window that says the following...

Verify your identity - You will need to verify your identity to receive payments. Please provide an image of your current government-issued photo ID. The name on your profile payments must match the name on your ID. The process may take a few days. You won't be able to edit your name after you submit documents or after your identity is verified. ID accepted in your country is...

And this is where a lot of problems occur when they really don't need to. The part you need to concern yourself with is not what Identity to use, but making sure the name on that said identity is EXACTLY the same as the name on the payments page. They need to be letter for letter. If these two things (your Adsense identity and your ID) do not match perfectly you can fail your identity check. So make sure that is correct before you even consider uploading anything.

Then you will need to make sure the ID you are providing and uploading is one that is accepted in your country. The main 3 are a driving licence, passport or a national identity card. The main problem here is that you need to make sure the ID form you have chosen is the OFFICAL one from your country. So make sure you do a Google image search to make sure you have the right form of ID. So if you plan to use a national identity card make sure you look at the country Adsense is asking for then do an image search for that countries national identity card. If some of the images match the style yours is in you can use that form of ID. If they don't it means you can't use it!

It really shouldn't be hard to prove you are yourself as long as you make sure you are who you say you are!
