Wish to set up an account with Google AdSense or confused and thinking hard about it? When your check arrives, check out this Google AdSense payment guide. This guide contains all the requisite information that you need to know, including the payment cycle of AdSense.
To start with, you need to set up an account with AdSense. Fill the online form, provide your personal information, furnish all tax details, select a mode of payment, enter PVN (phone verification number) and PIN (personal identification number). After furnishing these details, your account gets set up in Google AdSense.
When you generate an unpaid income of $100, Google sends you the payment check. For instance, if your entire unpaid income reaches $100 in January and you have furnished all the details as mentioned above, then you get a payment check in February end.
However, if your unpaid income has not touched the $100 mark, whatever earnings you have generated gets rollover to subsequent month. The amount accrues until total earnings reach $100. After this, you will receive the payment within 30 days.
How to Track the Income:
You can easily track your AdSense performance and income through the reports tab present in your account. This tab has, two more sub tabs, overview reports and advanced reports. To get general information of your income, refer to the overview tab. If you want comprehensive details of your account, go through advanced tabs.
To check previous records of the payment, refer to payment history. Now, click the link that reads out earning details. Check this link to know about payment details of each month. However, your name appears on the link only after you receive the first payment.
You can also view exchange rate to convert the payment in your local currency and check whether you have received the payments accordingly.
How to Calculate the Earnings:
At the last day of each month, Google AdSense system identifies your account and checks for generated amount, which has to be at least $100. Now, if your account contains $100 or may be more than that, the account is sent for verification and approval. Within few days of the subsequent month, the system sends you all details, which you can view by checking the history page.
After few days, the system processes your income and sends your payment, depending on the mode of payment you have chosen. If you do not receive this payment within 30 days or until 25th of next month, you will need to apply for reissue.
How to Hold the Payments:
If you do not wish to receive your check the other month, opt for payment holding. Here you just need to set up a self-hold in AdSense account. Although, you will not receive the unpaid income, the system accrues your earlier earnings. However, if you want to hold your account, you need to make the changes before 15th of the ongoing month. Thus, you can keep a track of your Google AdSense payments.
