If you are going to start a cheque received thread at least state where in the world you are.

I would be interested to see the difference between normal cheques, and express ones, so please post if you selected express or normal.

dacapo, did you select express cheques?

I thought EFT was starting this month - Google Emailed me and said it would start this month?

EFT did start this month - but people still have the option of receiving their payments by cheque if they want. So I assume people in this thread haven't set up the EFT option as yet.

or they are in one of the many, many countries around the world where EFT is not an option.

I setup EFT but was informed my sort code (UK - Halifax) wasn't recognised. :-/

On top of which I didn't get my cheque last month (seems to have gone walkabout). Hopefully this month's cheque will be waiting for me when I get home! :)

(should add that i contacted Google regarding my lost cheque and they were very prompt to respond and sort things out :))

I put the right sort code in. ;) Just wasn't recognised, although the email I got said it would probably be temporary - I replied today asking for some more information.

Did anyone that chose secured express delivery receive a tracking number?

I did not receive the tracking number. I have opted for secure delivery. Someone in the other forum said that it is only a secure delivery and you can not track it. It seems he got that message from Adsense support.

any US publishers get a check yet? I usually get mine next day, no dice this time around, and we're at next day + 1 already.

WebmasterWorld Senior Member 10+ Year Member



Google told me it was going to be DHL, so I assumed there would be tracking numbers involved.

Ah well. That would probably cost another $10 any way.

I'm in Australia.
Payment Type: Check - Standard Delivery
Currency: Australian Dollars

What I wasn't expecting was the return address and postmark, both Singapore. Post marked 26 April 2005.

It has been around two weeks in the past plus 28 days to clear the cheque. This time the cheque arrived 8 days and should clear in 5 working days.

so has anyone with secured express delivery got their cheque yet?

It seems that the express option may be slower!

According to a recent email from Adsense Support, all secured express checked will be sent out of Dublin. Ireland.

All normal checks will be distributed locally. Publishers in Asia and Australasia will, for example, get their checks by mail from Singapore.

Are the local currency cheques written on local banks? Or do they still have to clear through another country?
5:17 am on Apr 29, 2005 (gmt 0)

10+ Year Member



received in Hong Kong
local currency
regular mail
post date 25/4
sent from singapore

Now the question left is how long this check can be encashed... will it be 20 working days just like usd check? Lets see... heading to bank.

"thegreatpretender - what does it say on the cheque is it a local HK bank or not?"

Visit Thailand,

It says payable at: CITIBANK, N.A. (Hong Kong)

I guess it is. I'll go to the bank now and let you know if I can cash it right away.

That is great news which means they are local cheques.

Optirex>Normal UK Sterling cheque issued Citibank, Canary Wharf, London<
do you have to go to Canary Wharf to cash the check in Citibank ,or you can cash it at any local bank? Because my check is the same.

If I knew normal cheques for Australia were going to be sent from Singapore and the Secure cheques would be sent from Dublin I wouldn't have bothered with the Secure cheque. Grr.

I think if you go to citibank you can cash it right away. But it you go to other local bank, it needs to be cleared for a day or two. Well, that is how it works here in HK.
