Yet another cool thing from Google – Google AdSense payments can now be received via Western Union.Â For the time being they offer it only in a few countries, mostly those with weak banking system (?) – Argentina, Chile, China (Mainland), Colombia, Malaysia, Pakistan, Peru, the Philippines, and Romania.
Benefits are obvious:
- Faster transfers.Â Money will be available next day after the payment was issued.
- Easier processing. Cash, no checks.
- More money. Western Union transfers are promised to be free. Check processing costs something.
- More privacy (not that I care). Again cash, not a debit-only check.
I don’t get all that much money from Google AdSense, but I sure can appreciate the method.Â Hopefully Google will expand it to Cyprus and the rest of Europe in the near future.
