When it comes on Monetizing through Blogging then Adsense is the most favorite technique used by a Blogger. Adsense has always been the most traditional method for earning Online but most of the new Bloggers have been confused on receiving Adsense payments. To survive on Adsense is not n easy task for new Bloggers,also you will need to verify your address to receive Adsense Checks in India. Lets see how Google Adsense pays in India and what is the check arrival time.
How Adsense pays in India
New Bloggers who have started using Adsense are in lot of confusions because staying on Adsense is not so easy. most of the spam Adsense accounts are created in India, Pakistan hence Sometimes a ethical account is banned. I have received various of questions by our online readers weather Adsense pays through Check, Local bank transfer or EFT. Let me answer all your questions in this post.
First of all when you sign up on Google Adsense as a publisher and you have earned minimum of $10 (rs.500) Google will initiate the process to verify your Address by sending you a Letter (PIN) most commonly known as “Adsense PIN Verification Letter” That letter is sent you via local post and it should arrive on your Address between 2 to 4 weeks. your Personal Identification Number (PIN) is written on that letter, you will need to enter the same PIN on your Adsense dashboard to Verify your Address and this will enable your payments.
Adsense PIN Verification
New Bloggers and webmaster at initial stage have lot of questions related to signup , Account approval, account ban, payment methods, etc. these all information can be gained from Official Adsense Help center. Adsense PIN verification is a process to verify your address so you can receive you’re Checks and it should not be misused by any other person. On this traditional system Google sends you a physical letter at your Address mentioned in Adsense account this letter has your PIN and You will need to enter the same PIN on Adsense payment dashboard in order to enable your payments.
Google Initiates the PIN Verification letter request once you have reached minimum of $10 on your Adsense account. if you are living in India then the letter should arrive to your address in 20 days (It is being sent via India Post) Below is the image of Adsense PIN verification letter which I received 6 months ago.
Google have different payment options in different counties, For US and UK they support Western Union and EFT (electronic funds transfer) but in India there is only one traditionally payment method ”check” new unknown sources have reported Adsense will also come with EFT as a payment method in India and this will be a very good news for All Adsense publishers as Check takes lot of time for arrival and also many days to get clear.
In India (march 2013) Adsense offers payment through Check and they convert your earning to INR from USD using the highest conversion rate. You need to reach minimum of $100 USD in a month to receive a Check. if you earnings are low tan 100$ then your funds will be carried to next month.
Before Creating your Account on Google Adsense keep the following things on your Mind.
- While filling the form make sure your all details are accurate (Name address)
- The name you have entered should match the name in your bank account as the same name will appear on your Adsense Check
- Google will send you a PIN verification letter to your address, This is mandatory step which confirms your address so you can receive checks.
- Adsense will implement Telephonic Spport for all Adsense Publisher’s. this feature is currently in beta testing
- make sure you follow Adsense terms and conditions so your account will not get Ban without any reason
Google Adsense Payment in India
AdSense publishers in India will receive standard delivery checks mailed via the local courier service Blue Dart for no additional charge. if your area is covered by Bluedart then you will receive checks within 10 days. but iif you are staying in remote areas or out of bluedart service areas then your Check will be sent via Local registered post and it could take approx 15 days to arrive from mailing date.
If your check is already issued you can use Bluedart tracking to keep eye on your check status. the bluedart waybill number can be found on your Google Adsense payment page.
Check Clearing Time
A check sent in India is payable at any Citibank branch in India. If there is a Citibank branch in your city or town then your check will take approx 3 days to get clear but if there is no Citibank branch in your city or town then your bank will sent the check physically to Citibank for getting it clear and it will take a lot of days. Below is my story which will benefit you.
Adsense Check Status
The below Image displays my first Check status. I have received my first Adsense check on 7th of JAN 2013. The check was issued on 21st of December 2012. I deposited my check in IDBI bank on 11th of January 2013 and it was cleared on 19th January (shown on the above Image) IDBI took approx 7 days to credit the funds in my account They have sent the check to Mumbai for clearance there is no Citibank branch in my city
Now on next month i have received my Second earnings check from Google Adsense and my check was issues on 25th of JAN 2013 and I have received it on 7th of FEB, i deposited the check to my Another account SBI (state bank of India) On 9th FEB 2013 and state bank credits the funds into my account on 25th FEB 2013. SBI toked 16 dyas to clear Google Adsense (Citi Bank check). I was not at all happy because of the slow procedure of SBI,
From both experience I would suggest you to deposit your Google Adsense checks in private nationalized banks such as IDBI, HDFC, ICICI, Axis as they process it faster and your check can be cleared in less time. Below is a screenshot of New CTS 2010 Adsense check issues by Citibank.
New Bloggers are complete depended on Google Adsense, I would recommend them to start using alternative programs for monetizing from Blogging. For Indians Commission Junction is best way to monetize your blog traffic using Affiliates as they pay directly through bank deposit, also a one can use Infolinks to boost your Earnings from your content.
