Hello

Thousands of brazilian webmasters which are expecting the december check (delivered 12/20) noticed the delay this month, and yesterday they received an email from Adsense, informing that the checks are interrupted due to Brazilian customs regulations with couriered payments.

Ridiculous,
I wonder why Brazil Govt. would want to stop inflow of Foreign currency (that too US $$$).

Well, most of brazilian sites have ads from brazilian companies, so the currency is not so "foreign" in that way, I think. These companies use international credit cards to pay adwords.

tks

I expect that one day soon I will be facing the same problem from where I am located.

I have asked for direct EFT to my Miami account however so far this is not possible.

From what I've read, Brazil is mad at all things 'Google'.

If this is over the Orkut and YouTube issues, the Brazilian Government has a weird way of punishing Google.

Even if a lot of the smaller Brazilian publishers aren't getting paid, and they drop AdSense, the big guys will figure out how to get paid in other jurisdictions. AdWords users are still going to keep paying Google, even if it is just for ads on Google and on foreign sites.

So basically they are stopping incoming money and pissing off their own citizens.

This is a Tempest inside a cup of water.

Very soon this will end, and the whole thing will be fixed. I, as brazilian, see it with very good eyes, once this is a good opportunity for Google open a Payment Division, on Brazil, once, as the member above said, almost every single money the Brazilian AdSense Editors receives are from Brazilian Advertisers.

Orkut domains the whole country, and so do Youtube, so far, that the Justice got back , and made Youtube be acessable again, after the whole mess they did.

Everything will be allright.

regards
