Here is feedback from Google regarding my questions of the gap of check amount/reporting amount as well as the alternative payment method. I like to share it with everyone in the case that you have the similar questions:

"Data reported in the AdSense reporting is "real time" estimated
reporting that can have about a 2 day delay. We provide real time
reporting to give publishers an idea of how much revenue is being accrued
but this data is unaudited and subject to change. Typically publishers can
expect to see some variation in data during this period, particularly
during the first two days of days revenue estimation.

At the end of the month we formally close our books and audit revenue and
log data. Checks went out on 7/21/03 for the month of June. We are working
on alternative payment methods for next quarter."

It looks that we could get our checks in the next several days. GO ADSENSE!

Alternative payment methods. now that sounds good.

cashing a US cheque outside the US is no fun. Direct bank deposits/transfers would be ideal, much less costly, and take less time to clear. I hope that is being considered.

I do not mind checks. Most should be valid for at least six months so the cheapest thing to do with most banks is to clump them all together and as they all originate in the US then you should only pay one fee.

For example in HK you can put in up to six checks drawn off a US bank and be only charge HK$ 50 or alternatively you could just put one in and get charged the same amount. So if you do not receive cheques regulalry then it may be best to wait and clump them together - just don;t forget the validity!

So, has anyone got paid yet?
BTW I asked Google if they are thinking about payment other than in dollars, as I live outside the US. I have yet to hear back.

Yes something like that would be nice for me too,
I live in Europe so we pay with Euros.

Too bad 1 dollar is only 0.88 euro at the moment :(

Google got back to me and they stated -
'Unfortunately at this time we do not offer alternative payment methods. We do not have the ability to pay AdSense publishers in non US currency. Currently, AdSense participants will receive payments via check in US Dollars. We hope to add additional payment options in the coming months.'

Checks reportedly were cut or mailed out on July 21, so it may be a day or two before they start to show up.

They'll need to request taxpayer IDs from those who earn more than $600, but they don't have to do that before sending out checks. (I've been freelancing all of my adult life, and I've noticed that companies vary quite a bit in how quickly they request taxpayer ID numbers.)

They already request taxpayer ID numbers from Google Answers researchers who earn more than $600 a year, so I'm sure they'll just adapt their existing procedure to AdSense.

So no one in the US has been paid by google?

Or just the people in the US that made over $600 aren't going to get paid?

Perhaps I'm confused (wouldn't be the first time), but if Google hasn't even started collecting Tax info, how can Google pay U.S. webmasters?

If the checks were cut or mailed on the 21st, it will likely be another day or two before anyone gets them.

And as per the Google AdSense TOS, you likely won't see anyone quoting dollar figures.

You also have to remember that the month of June only began late in the month (the 20th or 22nd I think?) so checks would be smaller anyways. And Google might have contacted publishers individually if their June checks were over $600.
