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.
