Hello.

I read that instead of billing from the US, Google will start billing AdWords from its European headquarters in Dublin.

[internet-magazine.com...]

Is also to bill AdSense from Ireland in Euros?

A Dutch friend of mine is using AdWords and he got an email about this.

I'm (also Dutch) using AdSense and I did not get an email about this, so I guess that it's only for AdWords (for now).

Where did you get that?

The Euro has been the only accepted currency in the twelve countries of the euro-zone, which are:
Austria, Belgium, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Portugal, and Spain.

Besides even before the euro Ireland used "Punts" which are not the same as pounds sterling!

For the record, in Ireland you can spend Pounds in Belfast and Euros in Dublin!

Brief history of currency in Ireland:-

Up to 1922 (independence) pounds, then:-

Northern Ireland continued with pounds
Republic of Ireland punts to 1999

Then from 1999-2002 Euro & punt

2002-present punt

Dublin is in the ROI so they use Euros. I think perhaps you're confusing the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland - as Northern Ireland still use pounds (as they're part of Great Britain and Northern Ireland) whereas Southern Ireland (ROI) is completely independent.

All part of the island of Ireland.

This is probably not the place for Irish politics, but article 2 of the Irish Constution states

"It is the entitlement and birthright of every person born in
the island of Ireland, which includes its islands and seas,
to be part of the Irish nation. That is also the entitlement
of all persons otherwise qualified in accordance with law
to be citizens of Ireland. Furthermore, the Irish nation
cherishes its special affinity with people of Irish ancestry
living abroad who share its cultural identity and heritage."

I was not entering this debate, but merely factually stating you could spend pounds in Belfast :)

for the record I am Irish

:) I lived in Belfast for many years myself. Regardless of what the Irish constitution says the 6 counties of Ulster are part of the UK. You can deny it if you want but you are only lying to yourself :)

Cornwall - although I wasn't born in Ireland I too could claim Irish citizenship as two of my grandparents were Irish.

Quite what use it'd be to me having dual British-Irish nationality I don't know.... I suppose I'd have two sets of politicians to complain to about the government to. *grins* What are the actual advantages of having Irish ctizenship then? (Bear in mind that for me to become an Irish citizen would require me to send a copy of my birth certificate, parent's marriage certificate and birth certificate and grandparent's marriage and birth certificate - so at the moment hardly seems worth the bother...)

So Google bills AdWords advertisers from Dublin (in EUR), but pays AdSense webmasters from California (in USD), right?

But they are the same advertisements, aren't they?
