Nobody in the UK needs to start worrying yet.
I'm in Zone 2, about two miles from the Mt. Pleasant Street sorting office and I haven't seen an envelope with my name on it for about the last week.

I'm in London and just recieved my cheque today for the amount stated in my google account I'm a happy bunny, I only wish I was still earning that much now :(! LEts hope more advertisers get in there as my niche has too much supply I think!

lets hope the rest of the UK see theres too soon then! - in Kent and still nothing!

Yep - UK here too but still no cheque. I reckon it'll come within the next week though. After all - they said it'd take up to a fortnight to sort through the backlog of mail. On a more optimistic note though - I received another cheque from New York within four days of them sending it - so the next cheque from Google (for October) should arrive as normal.

Just to add it was posted on the 31 October :)

Arrived in the UK....... Panic over

I'm in the UK - my cheque has arrived now too. *grins* Ah well - better go and pay it in.

I'm in Edinburgh (Scotland) and have still not recieved my September Cheque...
Typical UK though, with christmas coming up and everything running well so the UK posties thought "lets mess it all up" ;)
| 5:03 pm on Nov 10, 2003 (gmt 0)|
Still nothing, despite the fact that other people in London and parts of the UK have received theirs...
Now I'm getting worried... >;->

Today my cheque came, it tool a bit while to reach in india but finally arrived. Now i am waiting to deposit in bank and getting it cashed, how much time will it take to cash? Thanks Google.

That really depends on your bank and your country. My last Adsense cheque that I banked has taken 2 whole months to clear. As it was the first in a new account and had to go through extra clearing. However I have heard of banks that are able to cash cheques in a few working days.
Good luck and well done on your earnings. :)

Still no cheque in the UK :(
Will leave it a couple more days and contact Google.
Has anyone had to request Google to stop and re-issue cheques yet - does anyone know if they charge?
| 11:02 am on Nov 11, 2003 (gmt 0)|
nothing still for me in the UK

My cheque finally arrived at my address in London, so I can breathe a sigh of relief. It looks like Royal Mail are gradually sorting out the backlog, but different UK publishers are having to wait different amounts of time depending on their local sorting offices.

Ok, I partially understand why the thread regarding cheques recieved was closed/locked.
However,as many users in the UK still appear not to have received cheques following the postal strike - Webmasterworld is my only source of finding out if cheques are still being recieved from Google throughout the UK.
At some stage I need to make the decision of contacting Google to ask them to Stop and Re-issue my cheque.
I am based in Peterborough, Cambs UK and still have no cheque :( - is anyone else in the counties of the UK still waiting for cheques?
Perhaps I am being impatient - but as I work for a financial services companies we are getting lots of calls from unhappy clients asking for lost interest on cheques not recieved! - as if this was our fault - thanks Royal Mail Workers.

I only got mine on monday, could be something to do with the strike in London.......id give it another few days and it will probably turn up.

Still waiting here too - i put it down to the postal strike and that most of the mail from the US will come through London

" we are getting lots of calls from unhappy clients asking for lost interest on cheques not recieved"
From what I remember of the rules in this area (which is admittedly hazy). In the UK SMEs are entitled to charge the Bank of England base rate + 8% anually on any bills that are 14 days (or more overdue).
Just because you've posted the cheque doesn't mean you don't owe them interest. During the strike many payment were made straight into people's accounts. There are many other forms of payment than just posting a cheque. In this day and age (unfortunately) the "cheque's in the post" is not a good excuse.

Dont worry we cover the reliability/our responsibility of the post in our small print!/T&Cs I was just using that as a side issue to point out the frustrations of not recieving cheques in the mail, our clients have the option of alternative payment methods!

No cheque here yet either :( I am located in Edinburgh.

like ewan, i am in edinburgh. unlike ewan, i received my cheque today, paid it into the bank (rbs) and the money is available tomorrow. nice.

These cheques really do seem to be all over the place - mine arrived in Bristol on Monday, a friend got theirs in Bath today.

i have scanned my cheque with a scanner for a Record on my computer, but Recently i have heared that Copy or Micro Printing of the cheque is not good, they will not cash the cheque then?
:S plz tell me that is it true?
but i just scanned the cheque with a Scanner!
| 3:50 am on Nov 10, 2003 (gmt 0)|
well they wont cash it if u decide to submit a color printout or a xerox of the original thing.
but u may remove xerox copies and keep them for your own record. In any case the watermark of "VOID" will appear when such a thing is done. The original cheque however is still very much encashable.
Suggestion: Quit wasting time and deposit it in the bank ASAP, next I know you will be asking us that you spilt some water on it and whether drying & ironing the chq is enough...
| 5:57 am on Nov 10, 2003 (gmt 0)|
1) You can only cash the original cheque
2) Don't try to cash a copy of the cheque - it won't be accepted and you could get accused of possible fraud. The original has various counterfeiting measures that wouldn't appear in a copy.
3) Copying the cheque in a scanner doesn't affect the original (or whether you can pay it in a bank).
| 6:08 am on Nov 10, 2003 (gmt 0)|
Scanning your check for your own tax records will not affect any of the counterfeit & security features used on the check itself. Many people scan or photocopy all checks to have a record on file for tax purposes.
| 9:01 am on Nov 10, 2003 (gmt 0)|
thanks you ver much!, i thought google will not accept my chq coz i scanned it! thanks alot....
i m hapy now!
