Google AdSense via Wester Union

Yet another cool thing from Google – Google AdSense payments can now be received via Western Union.  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.  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.  Hopefully Google will expand it to Cyprus and the rest of Europe in the near future.

  1. I sure hope Google Adsense will get this Western Union option to us here in Nigeria.

    With our peculiarity, it has been difficult to process my Adsense payments, because at the end of it all, the banks take so much charges from the money and you have virtually nothing left.

    Western Union option should be make available for Nigeria publishers as well.

    Regards.
