Canadian Payment Error

screwy exchange rate

Any Canadian webmasters receive payment today with a screwed up exchange rate?

Exchange Rate 0.884 : 1

There's no way 1 USD is worth 88 cents Canadian. It's more in the 1.12 neighborhood.

How could they screw that up?

Hey Brokenbricks,
Mine is messed up too. Looks like they turned the ratio backwards.

I can't believe that.
Everywhere I'm checking online doesn't show that.

The person who handles Canadian payment has a serious math problem. Exchange Rate of 0.884 : 1 should be 1 CND = 0.884 USD not the other way around.

Guess all Canadian payments had been calculated wrong.

Obviously my source was a poor one.

This is the first time in 10 years I remember ever getting less $ from a US check in Canada.

I guess it's time to go shopping down south.

yep same happened to me. I just wrote them to informed them of the error. I got a exchange rate of 0.884:1 instead of the 1.19:1 it should be.

$1 US is currently worth $1.12 Cdn

This is getting confusing.

Go to the website [xe.com...]
This explains the current exchange rates

Exactly, at this second it is 1.12029

Not 0.88 as calculated and paid by Google. That's a mammoth error.

Man this is ridiculous...

Amount of Payment in Local Currency - CAD $126.64
Exchange Rate - 0.884 : 1
Payment Amount: - USD $143.22

What's with the Canadian dollar? Is the economy that strong, or is it that the U.S economy is that bad?

What will the trend be? A Canadian dollar that is stronger than the U.S?

Just a few years ago the Canadian dollar was 62 cents.

A "trend" is irrelevent to this matter...

It's an obvious case of an accounting error

1.00 USD = 1.12073 CAD

I'm sure most of us experiencing this issue have written Google about it.
As soon as anyone hears back from Google will you inform us all of their solution.

I hope this can get fixed during this pay period.

Is it an accounting error if when they sent the payment, the current exchange rate was indeed .88?

We have a major problem in Sweden too.

As discussed on a swedish board; instead of exchangerate 7,5 the exchangerate was 0,133. That's 1/57 of what it should be. Seems like it was counted backwards.

The Exchange rate for the Euro of 1USD = 0.807 Euro looks ok.

According to XE calculations:
if you earn 100 USD you should get appx. 117 CAD.

Same problem here, and it happened to a friend of mine as well.

Seem like that same happened to all the Swedish publishers, a number of people reporting the same on a Swedish forum.

"0,133 : 1" Instead of 7,35 : 1

Quite a difference ... I got money for a burger instead of the few hundred bucks.

Isn't Markus Canadian?

I bet his payment is off by 100k.

LOL, I can just imagine them trying to claw back money that they had overpaid.

can you imagine what a mistake like this will cost them to fix? in case of Canadain cutomers they owe us money but how do you get the extra money already paid to euro publishers? some one is gonna get fired today!

@#$@#. We just paid taxes... I was counting on our full amount this month. It hasn't shown up in our bank yet, but the payment details indicate they reversed the exchange rate.

They better not wait 'til next month to settle up the difference. The exchange rate fluctuates too much.

Problem with my danish account to. exchange rate of 0,166:1 - should have been aprox 6:1

I hope it don't affect the actual payout.
