I hope you are not stockpiling Adsense cheques.... because they are void after 90 days.

I am, but 90 days is fine. What currency are they dispersed in?
| 4:05 am on Jun 5, 2004 (gmt 0)|
All in USD... I believe they explicity stated the currency of the payment in the TOS.
Last time I deposited a USD cheque to my CDN account w/o telling the clerk the currency of the cheque... later, the bank figured out anyway.
But it's always better to notify them.

Thanks Irock, what is the damage that the bank charges you for doing that if
a) you use your personal account of
b) you use a business account

If you earn a decent income from Google, you might want to consider opening a US-funds account. There usually is a moderate service fee involved, but if you can afford to stockpile US funds until the Canadian dollar is weaker against the US, the account can more than pay for itself.

Someone has figured me out. I am just waiting until the last minute to get the best return. Seems like I may have made a mistake. I have about 7 more days to work with, so we will see.

To avoid misinterpretations, Google should use the ISO-4217 three-character currency codes ("USD" instead of "$" or "dollar") on their checks.

I agree, I mean, how is my lender going to know the funds are American? By the mailing address.....riiiiight.

Hmmm... What happens after 90 days? It just becomes void? Do Google have any obligation to cut another cheque if there is good reason for the cheque not being cashed (say if you were stuck in a well or something of this nature)

wonderboy, I am nearly positive that in such a case you'd contact Google and they'd be glad to reissue a check. And I'm pretty sure that someone here posted that they did just that for them. Why not fire off an email to Google and ask and post a modified version of their reply here?

Nah, I am not really planning on getting stuck down a well =) - But, I do tend to wait a while to cash my cheques in one big go, say 2 months worth of revenue from all affiliate sites so that admin costs are reduced.

Where does it say the checks are only valid for 90 days?
| 6:38 am on Jun 6, 2004 (gmt 0)|
That's norm... in banking...
but I believe the max. valid period is 6 months...

I have cashed checks ( non google's) 11 months old no problem.
A check legally should be valid until cancelled, or there is a clear limitation of time stated by the check issuer.
So,anyone knows exactly the time limit for google's checks? Does it count from the time when paying into your account or when it is actually exchanged, or...?
Will it ever come the time when a wire transfer is possible?

I just put a cheque from the start of the year into my account with no troubles, so I don't know about this 90 day void thing..
