|Maybe Google crashed the system. ;) |
Was your payment THAT big? hehe

For those in the UK that have been paid does it still state "Payment in Progress" in your account?
Are there any UK based webmasters still awaiting payment? I hope I'm not the only one!
| 5:41 am on Apr 29, 2005 (gmt 0)|
Yes, still waiting for Barclays in the UK. "You are not alone..."
| 5:45 am on Apr 29, 2005 (gmt 0)|
It's the 29th, and it's been showing as "In progress" since the 26th. Anyone else here actually got their EFT payment?
| 5:49 am on Apr 29, 2005 (gmt 0)|
UK - Natwest.
Payment arrived at the bank this morning.
"Payment in progress" still showing in Adsense.
I think its like cheque payments. The funds have arrived but are not really usable for a day or so.
| 5:55 am on Apr 29, 2005 (gmt 0)|
Thanks for that, I use NatWest too, and despite G saying it's in progress I have the cash showing in my account.
| 6:19 am on Apr 29, 2005 (gmt 0)|
HSBC arrived today.
| 7:06 am on Apr 29, 2005 (gmt 0)|
UK Barclays - in this morning.
Still saying 'Payment in Progress' on Adsense Payment History page.

david_uk and Hinso,
Whats the exchange rate? Can you please tell us?
I think, GerBot somewhere said, the exchange rate for him 1 pound = USD $1.9247
| 8:06 am on Apr 29, 2005 (gmt 0)|
This was nice to wake up to.
Same exchange rate for me, 1.9247. UK Barclays and still says payment in progress in my account so seeing the same as others here.
| 8:35 am on Apr 29, 2005 (gmt 0)|
EFT Arrived today UK CitiBank
Still showing 'Payment in progress' in the payment history.
Looks like the exchange rate is something between 1.92 and 1.93....
Well done Adsense (For the EFT not the exchange rate)
| 8:50 am on Apr 29, 2005 (gmt 0)|
Here in UK too, HSBC, 29th April. Ended up c. 1.91 exchange rate.
After all those years of bloody cheques in US$ and mardy counter staff, this is heaven :)
| 9:08 am on Apr 29, 2005 (gmt 0)|
Another confirmation that EFT payments have now been processed by Barclays - exchange rate marginally over 1.92.
This is going to make life much easier. Thanks Google for listening to the feedback and well done.

isorg - Is it just me and you waiting for payment? Rang HSBC again and still no sign - how frustrating...
| 1:26 pm on Apr 29, 2005 (gmt 0)|
Payment in the bank today (UK - Lloyds). AdSense still says payment in progress. But I'm not complaining. :)
<added> Exchange rate was 1.92485. Anyone know if this is good or bad? </added>
| 1:46 pm on Apr 29, 2005 (gmt 0)|
1.92485 is on the high side, HSBC has been approx. 1.9 for the last few months. I can just about remember when it was 1.6 ish!
| 1:59 pm on Apr 29, 2005 (gmt 0)|
|After all those years of bloody cheques in US$ and mardy counter staff, this is heaven happy! |
This is heaven for me to! Every month I walk along to my local branch and get told I can't do an international transaction here, I have to do it through telephone banking. Although telephone banking are crap and just transfer me around till I hang up. International Banking informed me I am best to do the transaction at my local branch. The bank has actually managed to "misplace" one of my Google cheques and told me to get the cheque reissued as it would take to long to trace! Oh, and most annoying of all they seem to like to try and steal my money. When I want to move some money from my USD account to my current account it goes through their pending account. Funny that they seem to always forget to move it out of their pending account and into my current account. One month it took them 4 days to find my money *after* they moved it out of my current account.
I'll say again... "this is heaven". THANK YOU GOOGLE! :)

ewanfisher - what bank are you with? Had some problems with HSBC but overall impressed with the way they negotiated my cheques so as I had funds within a day or two.
| 2:19 pm on Apr 29, 2005 (gmt 0)|
Webpublisher - have you got your money yet? Mine came through this morning. :)
| 2:36 pm on Apr 29, 2005 (gmt 0)|
adsence says: Payment in progress
bank: Not in yet.
UK - Halifax bank
| 3:18 pm on Apr 29, 2005 (gmt 0)|
isorg - just checked again and no sign of it. Glad you got yours.
Whilst there are people in the UK without payment there is no need to worry. Google do say "Google will send you a payment via cheque or EFT within approximately 30 days after the end of each calendar month that Google ads are running on your site if your earned balance is US $100 or more" so as its the 29th everything should be OK.
| 3:21 pm on Apr 29, 2005 (gmt 0)|
My adsense screen says Payment Type: Check, Payment Date: April 25.
It is now April 28. Are the checks coming from overseas? Last month, mine came from Buffalo. If the check was indeed cut on the 25th, I could have literally walked to Buffalo and picked it up by now.
I was concerned that the EFT wouldn't work properly, so I did nothing, accepting that check would arrive as normal, but it's now Friday, and no check, so, something is not right.
Been having bad feelings about adsense in general for the past two weeks and this isn't helping.
| 3:37 pm on Apr 29, 2005 (gmt 0)|
fearlessrick -- I'm in the same boat as you. Did your mail come yet?
I got spoiled by my next day deliveries, but at least I didn't pay $30 to wait the same amount of time.
| 3:43 pm on Apr 29, 2005 (gmt 0)|
Just showed up on the Google page
exchange rate 0,766 for EUR.
Nothing arrived on my banc account in Austria until now
| 3:51 pm on Apr 29, 2005 (gmt 0)|
Mail already came. No G $$.
Nothing to do but wait, I suppose. I haven't seen anybody in the US say they've received a check.
| 3:57 pm on Apr 29, 2005 (gmt 0)|
HSBC have told me that if payment doesn't appear on the account by 1830 then the next earliest it will appear will be Tuesday 3rd May because of the Bank Holiday Monday.
| 3:33 pm on Apr 29, 2005 (gmt 0)|
Just got paid via an electronic payment. Way to go Adsense! Bye bye going to my bank and filling out forms. Downside is the conversion rate : 0,766 Euro for 1 $ :-<
| 3:53 pm on Apr 29, 2005 (gmt 0)|
I just checked at my bank:
BA-CA: 0,76 and fees
So the EFT brings me shure more than a $ check.
| 4:10 pm on Apr 29, 2005 (gmt 0)|
I'm probably best part of £20 up. That's nearly $40US. My bank used to charge £10.50 to cash the cheque, and somewhere along the lines they always used to give me a crappy exchange rate.
I don't know the G exchange rate yet, but it's very close to the one quoted on Yahoo Messenger - I'm well pleased!
| 4:28 pm on Apr 29, 2005 (gmt 0)|
Credited ok to my HSBC account in the UK eob last night.
| 4:29 pm on Apr 29, 2005 (gmt 0)|
I'll have to call the bank on monday. :( That's bad.
Good to know everyone else have got their EFT. Hopefully I will too.
