No payment could be related to the all problems people have posted seeing lately with the statistics pages. I doubt they pay anyone unless they know for sure the amounts are correct.

still waiting... 30 days will be tomorrow, and I know they do not work on Saturday (at least officially).
If/When I get this check, I think I will go out to dinner to celebrate this Christmas season. So long as Google maintains their end of the deal, Christmas will be spectacular... almost religious!

Just to let you guys know, I just noticed a July 20 payment entry on my accounts info page.
| 9:57 pm on Aug 29, 2003 (gmt 0)|
Yep Me too.
Now does that mean that the checks were posted on the 20th of August or was it that they were having a think about it.......
| 9:58 pm on Aug 29, 2003 (gmt 0)|
No, because if that were the case I'd have mine by now. I'm guessing they went out today.
| 9:59 pm on Aug 29, 2003 (gmt 0)|
What about the 20th?
| 10:10 pm on Aug 29, 2003 (gmt 0)|
Yeah! I'm first...Amounts have been posted in your account info section! (at least for me it has) Woohoo! :)
Correction: Silver Surfer was first...shucks ;)
| 10:13 pm on Aug 29, 2003 (gmt 0)|
Money figures have appeared in my account!
[Edit]Removed 'Woohoo!' from post. I feel so redundant :([/Edit]

Why does it say august 20th? did they send it august 20th or did they send it today, and if they sent it today why did they put august 20th.

Does Silver surfer get a prize for being the first?
| 10:20 pm on Aug 29, 2003 (gmt 0)|
I just noticed this too, with an August 20th date.
I am sure it takes a corporation as big as Google a couple days, to allow for the checks to be printed, get them signed/stamped, then into an envelope, sealed up, stamped and into the mail. Having been involved in a large company before, I know that there are all kinds of channels to go through when cutting checks.
<added>they could have delayed the checks showing up in the accounts until they actually got into the mail, which would explain the lag. But they were within that thirty days they promised</added>
| 10:22 pm on Aug 29, 2003 (gmt 0)|
So you think they Started the process of mailing on the 20th and maybe they could of mailed it on the 25th... 26th... For different people?
| 10:32 pm on Aug 29, 2003 (gmt 0)|
Yes...payment for June/July has now been posted!
| 10:52 pm on Aug 29, 2003 (gmt 0)|
Last month the payment information appeared on the 19th and checks started arriving on the 25th - so I guess we should be expecting something nice to appear in the post around September 4th :)

"Does Silver surfer get a prize for being the first?"
All I ask is for everyone to send me 10% of their August check.
| 11:02 pm on Aug 29, 2003 (gmt 0)|
Yup, mine's showing up too.
| 11:11 pm on Aug 29, 2003 (gmt 0)|
Payday! The 20th for me, too.
| 11:38 pm on Aug 29, 2003 (gmt 0)|
Hip hip hooray! I see its posted here too ... now I can't wait for my check! Got my mortgage and my wedding and my honeymoon to pay off! Too bad I started at the end of July but I can't wait for my August's check next month! Uhh ... the suspense was killing me. heh heh.
| 11:50 pm on Aug 29, 2003 (gmt 0)|
I didn't join AdSense until more than halfway through July. I'm gonna love August's check. :-)
| 7:08 am on Aug 30, 2003 (gmt 0)|
I have got mine too.
it just feel great..

|Got [..] my wedding and my honeymoon to pay off! Too bad I started at the end of July but I can't wait for my August's check next month! |
Funny you should mention that! Google Adsense is paying towards mine too ;)
| 10:40 am on Aug 30, 2003 (gmt 0)|
Regardless of AdSense - Congrats you guys or gals 'nutsandbolts' and 'thsung' on the marriage and honeymoon.
Dare I ask without hijacking the thread where you are going?
| 12:00 pm on Aug 30, 2003 (gmt 0)|
Does anyone else have a problem with this? They say the check was issued on the 20th... Yet, if that were the case, I'd have my check by now. It's obviously wrong and NOT within 30 days. Seems kinda shady to me....
| 12:35 pm on Aug 30, 2003 (gmt 0)|
I am really pleased that the payments are showing. As long as I know that they are on the way then that is all that matters really.....
I have been around for a while and used many advertising companies and the fact that Google has obviously made an effort to get the facts up is GREAT. They are making an effort. God knows what has been happening in the AdSense offices. For all we know they may have been having all sorts of problems.
Google Adsense is the biggest thing the internet has seen in years. Web designers/masters could do very well from this. Google seem to have got off the ground, they may be a bit like the 'wright brothers' at the moment, but I am hanging in for when they are steering the 'space shuttle'. It could be quite a ride......
| 12:52 pm on Aug 30, 2003 (gmt 0)|
Hmm, my payment date says august 20th, even though it just showed up today. does that mean the check has been send on the 20th and could basically arrive any day now? Or is the date when it shows, the date the cehck has been sent?
| 2:22 pm on Aug 30, 2003 (gmt 0)|
I'm not saying they won't have some bugs to work out...I'm certainly willing to deal with that... But, posting on the 30th that my payment was issued on the 20th...and I havn't seen a dime...it's just shady... I would expect Google to have their stuff together better than that..The FACT is...Google says they paid me 10 days ago... when in FACT they didn't.

Do you live in the USA Tamarick?
Visit_Thailand: Will help towards the wedding costs in NC, USA next year...Hopefully off to Venice for the honeymoon...IF my CPC increases ;)

For all we know it may be a simple typo. Should have said the 30th. I for one have made an error or two in my web business.
Regardless if it was mailed on the 30th I am content.
| 3:53 pm on Aug 30, 2003 (gmt 0)|
I'm another one who didnt start until late July so haven't got a cheque yet, but out of interest, is there any difference in the value of the cheque and the figures shown in the ongoing tally?
| 4:29 pm on Aug 30, 2003 (gmt 0)|
Yup. People were saying last month they appeared to be underpaid (presumably after audited results removed some duplicate clicks, issued overdelivery credits, etc) but I was overpaid by 3 cents ... which is odd. Maybe there was some rounding somewhere.
It's a common problem in many billing systems - two different views of the same data give two different results. The difference is often insignificant but can make people nervous.
For those getting upset about the payment entry being stamped as the 20th - don't. Next time you get an electricity bill in the mail take a look at the date of issue, the postmark date and the date that the thing actually arrives. It can take as long as 2 weeks for a bill to get from the printers to your letterbox and that is when they're asking YOU for money.
