If they do admit they were wrong, I would assume you'd get paid at the end of August, when they next process payments.
This is exactly what I don't want. Google really needs to clean up their act here. They were extremely late with the PIN letter, and now they want to pretty much mess me over with this.
I believe the procedure calls for the pin to be activated before they issue the first payment.
Payments are offered at specific times every month. I doubt they will issue a special payment to you if your issue is you didn't feel like you got your pin # in a timely manner.
Thanks, that is what I was just told. Still strange though. She said payments went out on the 27th for EFT and I had mine in on the 21st. That is 6 days they had. And when I put my PIN in, adsense said it was correct and everything was fine.
The PIN system is stupid in the first place, and now it just inconviences people even more.
If you entered your pin and selected EFT after the 15th of the month (even before payments show as processed), I think your payment would still be carried over until the next month.
Just to confirm this I'll give an example of my own experience ;-). I DID NOT want to get paid last month :-) .. so I went into the system and put my payments in hold before it was showing up as in process but after the 15th. When the payment got in process a big a nice warning was being shown in my control panel "Yuor payments are in hold...", I was happy thinking I was able to stop the payment, until I was checkin my balance account on the weekend to find out that I got paid anyway :-s.
So.. if you did it after 15th of the month, I think you will have to wait until end of august to get your money anyway.
