Collect Western Union Payment for Google AdSense

April 19th, 2008

For Malaysian only: As far as I know, there's only one bank in Malaysia where we can collect our Western Union payment, the CIMB Bank. After I switch to Western Union cash as my Google AdSense payment method about 2 months ago, I finally got to collect my first payment.

The collection process was really easy. It only takes 10 minutes. It would have taken more than a month if you were to wait for Google to deliver the cheque to you, and to wait for the cheque to clear.

What do you need?

  1. CIMB Bank Western Union Money Transfer slip
  2. CIMB Cash Deposit slip (if you want to deposit the money into your account)
  3. Your Malaysian Identity Card

What information do you need to fill?

  1. Your first and last name
  2. Your address
  3. Your phone number
  4. Google's name (Google Inc.)
  5. Google's address (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA)
  6. Payment amount
  7. Money Transfer Control Number (MTCN)

You could get most of the information from payment history page in Google AdSense, except for your own details.

One problem with this payment method. There is no notification from Google when they issued the payment. That means, you will have to check the payment details from time to time to find out.

I believe many of you have enjoyed this facility. What do you think?

Yup I really enjoy collecting the Adsense payment from WU. The cheques were cool but it was frustrating to wait for them to clear.

By the way, there are two other places that offer Western Union service. One is Pos Malaysia and the other is Bank Simpanan Nasional. I know this because I saw that yellow/black “Western Union” signboard hanging outside these places. I never tried with them before though, as I am comfortable with CIMB.

Everything was good, except for the notification part. If Google could send a notification, it would be perfect!

CIMB was great during my first visit. Hopefully they don’t give any trouble in the future.

Englee,

There is no need to get notify, Google has set the deadline for payment delivery. Once your payout read $100 on that month, you payment is release by 1 months + 5 days for EFT payment (which is through Western Union Transfer). Then, you just wait for 1 day or 2, you can login your adsense account and get the withdrawal particular, cash out from Western Union agents. If you didn’t get the payment by 1 month + 25 days, send your request to https://www.google.com/adsense/support/bin/answer.py?answer=53936&sourceid=aso&subid=ww-ww-et-asui&medium=link

The details of the payout roadmap can be read here:

I know Google has a fixed payout day. I also know when when I should be paying my credit card. I won’t remember to pay if I don’t receive my credit card statement.

Anyway, it would be better if I receive a notification, don’t you think so?
