Has anyone based in Australia received there payments for November yet? I know I'm still waiting and have spoken to at least two others in the same situation. I have had to turn the traffic right down as this is getting unworkable. Any one else in the same situation?

Since it has been about 5-6 weeks, I think it is time to contact Adsense support.

I'm in Oz.

I have had my November cheque for almost 2-3 weeks. I have been hanging on to it because the December cheques have started shipping and I might as well deposit two at the same time, given the time it takes at my suburban branch while the tellers argue how to process it.

Likewise in OZ and banked mine the second business day of the New Year. Expect my December cheque in next day or so.

given the time it takes at my suburban branch while the tellers argue how to process it

I've been using "WitchBank" with great success for several years. Reasonable cost, $8 or 10, funds immediately available as a "clean cheque". Sometimes [but not always] multiple cheques attract one fee only.

Your mileage might vary.

The thing that concerns me is I get a lot of checks from the US and normally if there not here 2 weeks after posting there not coming, I contacted Google and they say I have to wait 40 days. This becomes a little scary for me as I'm waiting on over 50k now and as a one man shop that's a lot for me to cover.

I'm with " That Bank" as well, and the thing that concerns me with them is every manager has a different set of rules regarding foreign cheques, currently I'm paying $10 per check, but this is cashed right into my account. I was taking in my book and leaving it with them overnight so they could do all the paper work they required, but this has now been stopped. It's interesting reading that " IanCP " is getting some cheques processed for one fee, a couple of managers back I had that, as long as the cheques were from the same company/ bank, but not anymore. Managers seem to change every 6 months at my branch and with every new one comes a new set of rules. There seems to be no company wide policy regarding the processing of foreign cheques. On a more positive side " That Bank " does provide you with substantial paper work which keeps my accountant happy especially since last year I clocked up over 7.5k in bank fee's.

Via our Which Bank branch they process the cheque, but the funds are apparently not cleared for 20-30 days. The balance appears in the account immediately, unlike a normal cheque.

I just cannot wait for Google to either do a direct deposit or credit it against our Adwords account. It is a major pain in the neck.

Thanks about the tip about Which Bank. I'm with ANZ and they charge $15 or $20 (depends on the teller and you can't argue) per cheque, so I have increased the minimum payouts where I can.
