I'm using the "Payment History" to answer in other post about the last month payment and approval but did not notice this month approved feature. How can I?

Approved!

It wasn't as if I really was worried that I wouldn't be approved—I've been squeaky clean in my dealings with Adsense. But this is going to be my first payment and I am stoked!

So, how long before the checks start rolling in? I take it that they start coming near the end of the month?

Woohoo, my first AS as well. My goal is to be in the FedEx club within 8 months, wish me luck! It's still 10K+ right?

Me too and Congrats to all who join the USPS and FedEX club...

"FedEx" means the payment >= USD10K, the check will be sent via FedEX, not US Postal Service. While "USPS" means the check amount < USD10K and >= USD1...

And so we have..

if ($payment >= 10000)
{
$method_of_shipment = 'FedEx';
}
else
{
$method_of_shipment = 'USPS';
}

.. What a lame post but hey - I'm just happy to have my payment approved - then again, I've been working my butt off and keeping squeaky clean.. so why wouldn't it be :)

Can I be incredibly "dense" and ask what the point of this is. Is everyone going to get cheques earlier. Actually it probably does, so no doubt we will get a "Its here" thread soon enough. Actually should I play a little paranoia inducing trick and start one now?

I think the point of it is to let fellow publishers know that the Payment has been approved by Google.

That can trigger publishers to login and see if there payment is indeed approved as well.

In the past there have been publishers that didn't get approved at the same time (or didn't get their checks when everyone else is).

My guess is that it helps other publishers know they are on track and to spot any payment issues in the early stages.

Still '2 - 10 days' till they actually post it though right? What's the bet it's 10 days...

Yes, they mail the check 2-10 days after the "Payment Approved" date.

But what are they going to do if it isn't? Have a sleepless night? let paranoia "kick in".

Just can't see the point of it. "I've got mine, have you got yours" - "oh you haven't oh dear how sad, but I've got mine ha,ha." "Mines biger than yours, no it isn't" and so on. Just think it is one of the three pointless discussions on this board IMO. Thats all

I'm with you blairsp. One post to alert us that the payment has been approved is plenty. The "me to" posts just take up space and serve no purpose.

What is the point of anything? Perhaps every forum here and every thread should be limited to one post and no discussion at all? In fact, why even have more than one forum and to avoid possible duplicate stuff maybe there should only be one webmaster forum in the world with no more tham 1 post in every thread and then allow a new post perhaps once a month?

That would certainly save me a lot of time :)

One of the other forums that I frequent has one single thread. That basiclaly states if you have got your cheque from anywhere post it here. Thats it. However, lets look on the bright side. It will soon be time to post the "I've got it" thread

I find the 'approved' thread and the I've got it' thread great.

It is very reasuring to know that checks are landing on doorsteps as Adsense has such a poor client relations.

I say we should have a 'check cleared okay thread'

How long do you give it though when you haven't received your cheque before paranoia and worry set in. The next day, the day after, a week? Or what if it doesn't come at all. When are you going to send off the e-mail to G saying I haven't got it?

Thankfully that has not happened to me as yet, I shudder to think of what hassle may be awaiting if a check was to go adrift.

I know that the topic of Direct payments has well and truly been covered on this forum, however I must admit I do wonder why they have not implemented it yet. There must be dozens of companies that would queue up to do the job. There must be an underlying reason.
