The check for February has arrived!

Looks different and has a different return address I believe.
It might even be drawn from a different bank but I am not positive.

I got mine too. The envelope is a lot different. I didn't even know it was my check. There is no indication it's from Google. The only writing on the envelope is a PO Box return address. I actually sorted it into my junk pile of mail that I look at after I read my important mail.

The express delivery through DHL seems very fast, looks a good deal for other countries, thanks G :)

Same here. It was in Saturday's mail, opened all the 'important' stuff and this got shoved aside until this morning. Could easily have gone out with the trash.

Now, the real difference: Not mailed from California but Buffalo, NY. Got here real fast in 1 day (I'm in NYC). Are all checks now being mailed from Buffalo, or is Google now using contractors in different regions to mail checks from closer to home?

<aside>Ever notice how G, no matter how much information it thinks it puts out, always misses that one small piece that might be important to many publishers?</aside>

So if an international publisher selected the Express Deliver option, Google is already sending the checks by express delivery? There is no waiting period like with EFT?

Could you please tell more about the envelope.More details like color of the envolope etc will help. This will help to recognise the most important mail easily. Otherwise I may think that it is trash and throw it away.

My was a 6" x 10" white envelope with a New York postage meter stamp and a Buffalo NY PO Box address on the top left side.

"Me too."

In Daytona Beach, Florida. Return address says "Buffalo, NY" but the postmark says "Brooklyn, NY" and is stamped on March 25.

Check looks completely different from last month.

By now everyone will receive payment through DHL (express) until new methods get ready.

Rec'd today W of Boston.

Interestingly, I signed up for EFT, and when I first checked the payment page, it said type: "EFT". I looked at my bank account and saw nothing. Then the next time I looked it had changed to type: "Check"

No email, nothing. Wondering if anyone esle saw the same thing, or have I lost it? (or both)

Also rec'd today, Syracuse NY. Same wt. envelope from Buffalo. I'm guessing that (along with the EFT) this is from a check processing company who also facilitate the EFT for Google

I saw the same thing with my account. The payment originally showed "EFT" and then was changed to "Check" the next day.

This forum is getting more trivial by the day :-/

What on earth is this good for?

Just got my check today in Minnesota. I'm sure glad I read this thread. I never even would have opened the envelope otherwise.

Looks exactly like junk mail!

arrowman,

Indianads asked me in an earlier post to describe what the envelope looked like. Maybe he thought he throw it away not realising it was a check, or may have had another reason for asking. Regardless I do not think that answering another members direct question could ever be considered trivial.

I am also glad that I read this thread. My check arrived today (midwestern USA). It does look "different." The envelope is oversized (bigger than what Google used before) and if I hadn't been alerted by this thread, I would have also assumed it was some sort of junk mail.

I just received mine here in northern Nevada. I can somewhat understand some of the differences. Companies, just like individuals, periodically need to order more checks and sometimes what the check looks like changes (personally, I prefer comical cows on mine :) ). However, the envelope really should've had some sort of identifier on it so we'd know immediately what it was. Even just a "G" would help.

icedowl, I completely agree. The only mail I ever get from Buffalo is junk mail relating to an old bank account... Fortunately, I could see what looked like a check through the windown on the envelope.

I would say that the flashier the envelope the most chances it might not reach it's destination (especially on certain countries)... So I think it is a good idea it doesn't say google on the envelope..

I, for one, am VERY glad for this thread. I just got my check and normally I would have torn that envelope in half and trashed it w/o ever thinking twice. Then I'd be wondering for the next several days where my check was!

But when I saw 'Buffalo' I knew it must be the check. Absolutely identical to average junk mail.

I'm glad for this forum!

Received my check in Sacramento, CA USA.

It looks about the same size and style as the bills from UPS come in.

What's interesting to me is that the checks were received in New York and Northern California (all the way across the US) on the same exact date.

I'm glad EFT is here, but this is a big improvement over prior months delivery times.

"I received my check" threads usually are trivial. But three important things come out in this one:

1) Google changed its payment mechanism; checks appear to be arriving sooner;

2) Publishers were alerted not to throw out that "junk mail" with a no-name return address from Buffalo; and,

3) Google forgot to tell publishers about the changes.
