Apparently my check was sent today for Feb, my payment history is updated. This may be a sign of great things to come with better processing time, new stats, new ad sizes, keep it coming.....

Confirmed as well. This is the earliest date in the month payment has ever shown up in the payment history. Perhaps they are trying to show they are making an effort to get payments out to publishers within the 30 days, after the mishaps we've seen in two recent months. Definitely a good sign!

Let's see how long it takes for them to actually arrive to publishers.

Now thats good. I can see that in my payment history also.

however, i think, they should have some more option for recieving payments.

Cheers

Jenstar,

I've seen June 2003 payment recorded on July 10 2003. Did anyone else see this as well?

Yes, it showed up in the account history with a date of July 10th, but it didn't actually appear in the account history until July 18th. (It showed in account history before the separate payment history section was added).

Wow, you certainly keep track of adsense payment. No doubt WW chose you to moderate this forum ;)

WOW WOW, man is this early.

Or before we all get to excited, it may just mean that Payment Data has been sent to the printers, who will knock them out near the end of the month? Hope not, would be nice bonus to receive this cheque early………..

Steady on guys. "Payment sent" in google terms, does not actually mean "payment sent".

Last month it meant "we'll be sending it shortly".

Let's see them actually perform this early payment for March *before* we start giving them too much congratulation.

Yes, I am seeing the same in our account. I suppose all of the heat they've taken for their prior payment mishaps has been noted. My guess is that this is a move on G's part to show good faith to the publishers by reducing the payment cycle. Given that they've already have been paid by advertisers, there was no technological reason they needed 30 days to pay the publishers.

If this is the case, this is a very smart move on their part. One that will likely generate significant good will at very little actual economic cost.

Who complained about a 30-day payment? Considering the payment structures of almost every other advertising network, that's about average.

I think that the only time that people had a reason to complain was the infamous October payment. Besides that instance, Google's payments have surpassed expectations.

IMHO, sending the checks this early this month is a great thing.

Exactly. Not fantastic, just average.

My experience has been that "payment sent" does not mean "payment sent". It's misleading. I would interpret "payment sent" as "it's in the post".

That is not the case with google, and that I think is wrong.

They should put "payment sent" in the control panel when payment has been sent. Not before.

That was my only point. In general, apart from the odd glitch, I've found google to be good payers.

But it's critical that any company using self-imposed credit terms plays fair, and gets payment out fast. This is not "hey, aren't google fantastic" more a case of "glad to see you're doing the right thing".

wow, looks like google is heading towards net-zero, meaning they send payments at the end of the month :D

way to go G!

TJ: I don't mind them putting the payment in the "payment sent" category whenever they start the process. I don't think it is misleading. In addition, I think that starting the February payments this early goes beyond doing the right thing and deserves recognition.

On the other hand, I am also eagerly awaiting direct deposit.

I'm excited - February was my first month with Adsense. I actually didn't expect to see a change in my payment history for another month or so. Too used to getting affiliate checks quite awhile after the fact.
Now we'll just see how long it actually takes to get it in my hands...

"On the other hand, I am also eagerly awaiting direct deposit."

Lets hope that when it says "deposit has been made", that really means that the deposit has truly already been made.

It's one thing watching for the postal carrier, but checking with the bank 10 times a day to see if the money has been deposited will lead to insanity;)

That all depends on how long the payment process takes this month. If they don't take weeks doing that, then I agree, and it will deserve recognition. I will be the first in the queue to give that recognition if that is the case.

The point is, the time between that tag going up in the payment sent box, and the cheque actually being put in the post, is the key element.

Saying "Payment Sent" is clearly wrong though. It hasn't been sent! I wouldn't mind if they said "Payment now being processed". It is misleading, until people come to this forum and learn what it actually means.

I'm a great believer in clarity.

The true test will be when we actually start receiving the checks.

I don't think the postal system is google's responsibility. Once it's in the post, it's down to the World postal systems, not google.

What I want to know is, when has the payment been sent?

I'm with TJ on this one. I think Google should change the phase. The payment has not been sent, the payment process has simply been started. I know, my wife claims I'm too literal also ;-).

Now, I do agree that Google is to be commended for the improvements that seem to have been made in getting the payments out quickly. I love it.
