I know that I’ve been a really bad boy and not been paying attention to my Google Adsense earnings as of late. Oh yes, I still get payments from Google but certainly not as much as it was during the time when I was focusing my attention on it and at its peak. Mostly its because I get discouraged with the payment systems via cheque which is troublesome for this part of the world I am living in. Not only do I have to wait for a long time for those cheques to arrive, I also have to wait for them to clear at the local bank (takes a whole bloody month, would you believe it?). Plus, after the bank dip their beaks into the money, there isn’t much leftover for me to save or spend.
However today, I got a pleasant surprise in my Google Adsense control panel. Finally the alternative payment, i.e. Western Union, is made available for users.
Western Union payment is almost instant and it certainly avoids the hefty bank charges associated with the cheques. No prizes for guessing which option I chose after I saw that it was available.
