Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
I have many different accounts with lots of companies all over the world. Although the cheque is a little late, Google would be the most reliable with payment.
I would not worry too much. Google pay and usually on time :)
So that month 2 cheques arrived close together :)
Its not unusual for my cheques to go on holiday to Europe before coming to Australia. My cheques are better traveled than I am.
