"You will receive a check for your account balance within 30 days of the end of every calendar month that your earnings amount to $100 or more. We will also pay out all accounts at the end of the year, regardless of balance. "

If I am to receive a check from California by August 30, they had better send out checks tomorrow.

I must admit, I am getting anxious. The check is supposed to be quite large (relatively speaking) and I want it. Anybody get paid for this month yet?

IIRC, nothing says that your will "receive" your check in 30 days, they just promise to process your payment by that time.

Does GoogleGuy still drop in occassionaly? Maybe he could provide us with a payment update. I'm surprised we haven't been notified about the delay through e-mail.

There isn't a delay yet - they have thirty days as per their AdSense FAQ to get a check in the mail. We are only on day 26 ;)

Actually, it says exactly that:
You will receive a check for your account balance within 30 days of the end of every calendar month
(my emphasis)

it's on your Account Information page.
Although (call me naive) I'm not worried about not being paid by Google, even if it comes a day or so later.

Has anyone tried contacting them about it with any response?

The FAQ & Terms will always override what ever is written anywhere else. This was brought up in another thread, and I am sure it was just an editing mistake on Google's part (and I sure wish they'd get it changed one way or the other!)

The FAQ says:
Google will mail you a check within 30 days after the end of each calendar month that Google AdWords ads are running on your site if your earned balance is US $100 or more.

But I am also in agreement with SeaBoy - I am not worried about not getting paid by Google, I just hope it arrives before I leave for London ;) 30 day terms is amazingly quick when most take 60 to 90 days to pay, if not longer.

The only reasons why someone might not get paid is for AdSense fraud, or if money is owed for an AdWords account. As long as you don't fall under either of those, your check will be cut and mailed sometime this week.

Yes, I've sent an e-mail last week, and received a response on the lines of "processing logs and audit files", "soon" "between 4 to 6 weeks after the end of the month".

Not exaclty within 30 days or after 30 days - between 4 and 6 weeks. Perhaps too much traffic being processed?

Just sit and wait. In the meantime keep serving the ads :)

between 4 to 6 weeks after the end of the month

Thank you for sharing, that is very interesting. If they are saying 4 to 6 weeks, I am guessing they had either many more publishers than expected, or many more possible fraudulent clicks/impressions they need to audit before sending payment.

If they are actually changing payments to 6 weeks, they should send an email to publishers and/or change the FAQ. It is still possible they may do that before the thirty days is up.

Google will mail you a check within 30 days after the end of each calendar month that Google AdWords ads are running on your site if your earned balance is US $100 or more.

According to the current situation, I do not think that Google could "mail" out the checks by Aug. 30. Even after Google completes the auditing and publishing the earnings, it would take several more days to cut and mail the checks because it looks currently Google outsources the service from the third party.

I think Google should update the TOS/FAQ as well as the message shown on the "Account Information" page.

So far google hasn't let us down. Let's hope they still send the checks out by August 30th. I would think they would post something if it was going to be extended for two weeks.

It could be that the "4-6 weeks after the end of the month" phrase in freitism's email was referring to when you will actually receive the check. That would give the postal service 2 weeks to get everyone's check out to them.

Freitism can you tell us if google was referring to when they would send them out or when you would receive your check.

I tried to quote only essential parts of the e-mail I've received, because I can't do a full quote - that'd be bad.

The e-mail text says from 4-6 weeks depending on your address after the month in which the account qualified.

It makes clear (to me) that this is the time to expect a cheque to be delivered.

Yep that makes sense. For all we know the cheques may already be processing, and as long as they send it off by the end of the month i dont think they have misled me as it could take 2 weeks for the post to go to a remote province in China! And they still have 5 days. They dont have much control over the postal service so I always found the claim that we will actually RECEIVE checks before the end of the month as a bit risky so we really didnt take much notice.

I will just take the statement on the accounts screen as a typo, (and overidden by the FAQ/conditions/terms i generally see as the "bible"), of which we have several on our own site.. ;)

Thanks freitasm, I was hoping that that was what you and google were refering to by the 4-6 weeks. Appreciate you sharing your info.

Yep, also in Canada, also no cheque. I guess if we don't get anything by Sept. 20th or so - 6 weeks + a few days mail time, we'd be "worried".

Good to know, good to share this info.

Email from Google received today says that payments for the month of July have been processed and should be received soon.

However, there is still no payment showing up in my Payment History page. :-(

Oh, sorry. I emailed them asking about payments, and their response said that July payments had been processed. They didn't just send me an email out of the blue.

Hello All

I am new to Adsense and I have amased over the $100 during July.

I have been reading through all the posts and I am concerned as many of you are about when we will receive a check.

Can I clarify, or can anyone help me clarify the following.....

Adsense started in June 2003 and the payments went out okay?

But that is the last we have heard......

Relax, I'm sure everyone will get paid, just imagine how many checks they have to send out and if it takes a few extra days no big deal.

I'd concentrate on adding more content so you can get paid more next month.

We will have to have a competition to see who can post 'I got it' first(lol). If it ever comes.....

Once I get my hands on it I can say YEAH>>>>> to all those affiliate rip offs that have been hammering us webmasters for the last 24 months. The days of the CPM riches could be upon us again. Advertisers are going to find that the only way that thay can get inventory is by coughing up in advance......

Can we look forward to a VERY nice Christmas? Will my father christmas be coming from CA

Hopefully he's really busy signing our July checks. ;)

I don't think Google is being tricksy ;) But I do wonder why it isn't showing up in the account though, if they say checks are going out or are about to.
