Finally, PIP Romania. I hope that when the country joins the European Union on January 1st payment options will change to both US dollars and euros :)

For those who think dealing with G is wonderful and that G actually gives a rat's behind about your little sites:

I would like to run a banner or display ad on your sites in January. I will pay each of you $5 for the month for full run of site and I'll pay you May 1st.

Isn't that a great deal... for me?

Um... if you find people willing to accept that as the best offer on the table, what's wrong with their accepting it? As it is entirely irrelevant to the AdSense model, and unattractive to me, I would reject it and stick with AdSense.

I didn't say that Google is wonderful or cares about me. I don't even care if they like me or my site, of if their CEO is the devil incarnate. It has no bearing on the fact that pay their bills on time. As anybody who has dealt with trying to get businesses to pay their bills should be able to tell you, Google beats the majority, hands-down.

As per Google's payment schedule, PIP. Stress less people. :/

I know that we have been waiting for this monies and it could be quite a bit for alot of us, but in the future I would suggest for those people that were expecting this earlier than what they have done.. to budget accordingly when it comes to Adsense payments and take into consideration there payment schedule and timeline -- no matter if they have paid us on earlier occasions before.

Hope you's all have a good new year & I wish you all the success in 2007! Bring it.

Payment Issued here in the USA (EFT), but nothing showing in the bank yet. I don't usually have this problem as I usually see the money in the bank during the PIP stage, so not sure what Google is doing this time around.

Google says my EFT was done yesterday (27th). That is news to my bank who shows nothing (28th)! Guess it will show up eventually. Maybe I should ask Google for their credit references! :-)

Things are definitely different this month with Google as I usually have the money in the bank during the PIP stage as well.Now it says payment was issued yesterday yet absolutely nothing appears in my bank account and nothing is pending either.This may be a sign of things to come with Google.My Yahoo EFT however arrived in the bank on the 27th. just as they said.I never get my Yahoo money before my Google money arrives.This is a first.

Why do you see this as Google's fault rather than your Bank's fault.

Please can someone explain to me why it is that so many people who chose to do business with Google and who, no doubt, mostly profit from the business, expect Google to behave like a charity.

Yes, people would like to be paid even earlier, but why should Google do this when they are already paying earlier that they say to expect payment? If Google had paid earlier this year, then wouldn't people just want it even earlier next year.

There are delays in submitting electronic payments and these appearing in peoples bank accounts - these delays are exacerbated over the holiday period, and not necessary due to Google.

IMHO Google are being entirely fair and reasonable. Google are far better at paying reliability and consistently than many other businesses at this time of the year.

Whenever I pay money electronically from my Business Bank account to my personal bank account I find that the money is taken from my business account on the day I specify, but does not get credited to my personal bank for a few days. I understand that this is standard for many, if not all, banks. I've never understood where the money goes to during the transfer period, but I'm pretty certain it has nothing to do with Google.

My bank does provide me with an option to pay through CHAPS with a guaranteed date for payment into the payee's account. They charge £15 (~$30) per payment for this service.

With today's technology, it may be hard to explain why Electronic Funds Transfer cannot be closer to instantaneous, but the fact remains that it isn't.

I do agree that normally when the PIP shows as completed it has already appeared on my bank account. This is a first for me as well, although I don't particularly care either way.

makes a little sense

I think there are a lot of variables this time around which is not typical of Google. I'd say Monday or possibly even this Saturday, payments should clear.

Well, Google dropped the ball on this one for me. What business would do a transfer on the 28th and expect it to be processed on time during a holiday? Google I guess, and it's a little irresponsible. At the very least they could screw people on a regular basis so they expect to have random payments. Itís generally not a good business practice to pay someone on time for years and then screw them over as a christmas present. Looks like Iím not getting this payment until Jan 2nd, when the banks are open again. Not forgetting this screw up that's for sure. If they send me a gift next year, I know where I'll tell them to shove it, after they give me my money.

EDIT:
I got the money shortly after posting this, as if the google gods were watching. I'm still displeased and I'm never going to trust google payments again. I have other means of income, but it's still nice to actually trust additional income, which I won't again. I hope those of you relying on google as primary income start diversifying, if you haven't already learned the lesson.

I understand that "on time" means the money will be in my bank before the 5th January. Google has never given me any reason to expect payment any earlier than that. If it is earlier, then that may be a bonus.

Where has Google said payment will be before the end of the month?

Pengi: You missed my point, when google pays someone on the 20th-23rd of every month, that someone expects it at that time and begins to trust a company for it's consistency. When they are off by a week at a time like xmas/new years, a reliability issue comes into play. If they were off by a week or week and 1/2 every couple of months, I would expect that to be normal google behavior and not care.

Who's getting screwed? Technically you got your money a week early.
