A friend told me he found an old cheque from Google Adsense which is almost a year old because it was misplaced and he forgot all about it. I am not sure if Adsense is going to reissue the check for him.
However, now, I am in similar situation. We dilly-dally about cashing out the income for November which was issued on December 24th, 2007 because my paymaster was too lazy to cash it for me. Yayaya…you know the story.
I thought we can cash the two months payment at one shot. Unfortunately, CIMB cannot trace the payment and after checking with Western Union, it was found that Western Union has returned the money to Google Adsense. What? It is just one month and a few days!
Then, I got to sieve through Google Adsense FAQ and found this FAQ :
How do I request a reissue of a payment?
If you receive payments by standard delivery check, you can request a reissue of a payment made in any month after the 25th of the following month. For example, to request a reissue of a check originally dated February 27th, you’d need to write to us after March 25th.
If you receive checks by Secured Express Delivery, you can request a reissue of any month’s payment after the 5th of the following month. For example, to request a reissue of a check originally dated February 27th, you’d need to write to us after March 5th.
To request a new check, please contact us and specify the number, date, and amount of the check that you’d like reissued. You can find this information by visiting your Payment History page and clicking on the details link related to the payment for the appropriate month.
I have sent in my request and wonder when Google Adsense will re-send the payment to me? I hope they don’t charge me a fee for the extra admin work. I know what you are thinking…
1) What? Too much money, give you money you don’t bother to cash out issit?
2) What? Google Adsense income too little so you don’t bother to cash out issit?
None of the above. I have to rely on my master. I am only a poor blogger who blogs. Nameless, account-less and penniless. BTW, I have cashed out December income yesterday and the rate was 3.27 from CIMB.
