What country are you in?

This might help so that someone from your same country in the same situation can give you a more specific answer?

From experience in UK.

Sign all cheques on the back. Am assuming you are from UK with the spelling of checks.

If they are drawn on a U.S. Branch of Citibank then expect to wait between 4-6 weeks for the cheques to clear. The cheques are sent by snailmail to the bank.

>>>>>What Happened If I Did Not Sign At The Back.

When I didn't sign a batch of cheques the American Bank sent them back to Scotland for signatures. Because I was out of the country when the arrived back in Scotland it took about 5-6 months for them to be cleared.

Scottish Bank - Royal Bank of Scotland
U.S. Bank - Chase Manhattan

Signing on the back or whatever is going to depend on your bank. They would ask you to do that if they required it. In New Zealand I just fill in a deposit slip. Don't worry.

Olwen:

It was the U.S. bank that refused to honour the cheques because there was no signature. The Scottish bank manager couldn't believe it.

US Banks are not supposed to accept checks that have not been endorsed (signed) on the back. That being said, I've heard of non-signed checks that slip through without a signature and are cashed/deposited. It's not supposed to happen, but it does. It may go through, it may be sent back.

You may be asked to endorse the cheque - that is, the account holder has to sign the back of the cheque.

That should be the only thing you need to do to it, your bank will advise if you need to endorse it. The bank shouldn't accept it if it needs to be endorsed.

It shouldn't matter to Citibank whether or not its endorsed, as they are simply remitting payment back to your Pakistan bank.

When ever I have tried to cach a Google cheque they always ask me to sign it. If not already signed.

In the EU, most banks will ask you to endorse large / foreign checks. That's mainly due to anti money laundering laws, the banks want to be able to prove that you deposited the cheque.

I'm in New Zealand and only ever get small cheques. I do get small Australian cheques quite often. If they are made out to the name on the account that seems to be enough. I don't normally do the banking. My man does it for me because I have a "real job" that's not handy to the bank.

What's the problem with signing your check. If you cannot sign, use thumb mark. Most banks honor them. That should get your money in your account faster rather than making a big fuss out of signing or marking your check.

Have two forms of id, a thumb that is ready to transfer a print, and a pen to endorse the back of the check. ;)

(There are some banks that do require this here in the states)

But regardless, make sure to sign a stateside drawn check on the back when you go to deposit. Just makes life much easier, especially when you are in a country where endorsing a check isn't required. Here in the states, it is.

Did anyone get their check number yet for this month?

I have "approved" but still no check issued, is this normal?

Does anybody know if Google are planning to make any changes to their methods of payment.

For example, instead of sending checks/cheques they could transfer to a PayPal account or credit a person's credit card.

I would imagine that these 2 methods would save Google a ton of money and hassle compared to the current mail and printed check/cheque system they currently use.

From the reports of the most resent webmaster world conference, it doesn't sound like it unfortunately:

thanks for the link Rodney - interesting read. I wonder if part of the reason is because Google have the money on deposit and earning interest for an extra 30+ days. If this was the reason then I really wouldn't mind being paid 45+ days so long as I was paid electronically and not by cheque because of the hassles cheques involve...
