Western Union as an Adsense Payment Method

Do you live in Argentina, Chile, China (Mainland), Colombia, Malaysia, Pakistan, Peru, the Philippines, or Romania? If you do, there is a new option for receiving your Adsense payments. You can now receive your payments through Western Union with Western Union Quick Cash.

Payments will be available for pick up from an agent the day after they are issued and it’s free. That’s means you don’t have to wait for a cheque to arrive, be cleared by your bank and potentially lose out on a bit of your earnings with associated bank charges.

The payment method is only available to individual payee names and not to businesses and as per Western Union TOS you will need your ID to pick up the cash. Payments are made out in US dollars and must be picked up within 35 days of issuance. If after this time period you have not collected the money it is put on hold and credited back to your Adsense account.

    Personally, I don’t really like Westen Union. I have heard some bad things about WU in China.

    People use WU to wash money. Yes. WU is actually a better way to transfer money between US and China.

    Great information!

    Terence – you are right, there are a lot of people who have a few horror stories to tell about WU. Scammers love using it. If used correctly it can be a really great way of transferring money.I have used it myself a number of times.

    Villager – thanks for stopping by. Good to see you here.

    Thanks for your nice comments on my blog. But I don’t make any money and in this respect my technique or something is not correct. The question of receiving money comes later. I really like your work and would like to visit again to learn how to make some money. Good luck!
