PIP - September 2007

Aren't we overdue for this topic?

I keep coming back to see if anyone has started the "PIP" or "Why no PIP?" or "Where is our PIP?" thread. Did I miss something? Was August so dismal that no one cares about getting paid this month?

Where are all of the "Google normally starts PIP on the last Tuesday of the month" posts?

Is everyone engaging in intellectual conversation and forgetting about what's really important here? ;)

Well I'm glad that you posted!

When I tried to post about PIP about 2 months ago I was told that I had to wait until someone actually got the PIP line on their adsense account!

I also thought that since no one had posted yet it was they were all resigned to the fact that the adsense payment wouldn't be coming until this week.

I was so anxious to see the PIP line in my own account that I checked with one of the Adsense consultant's back posts where she said that if the PIP line wasn't on her account by 7 - 8pm EST than it would be at least another 24 hour wait!

So so far no PIP line showing here!

Now the Adsense site is down!

Dare we hope that it could have something to do with the PIP?

Adsense is painfully slow right now. I gave up trying to figure out if I was getting paid soon.

Where does one see this mythical PIP message? I'll be receiving my first ever payment this month.

I've sworn off participating in these threads, but your's is a legitimate question. You'll see a link on your AdSense report page right underneath "Today's Earnings" for view payment history. Click on that and the report will show if a payment has been made for August. Once you see that the payment has been made, you'll know that you have a PIP. Of course, actually receiving the money is a much better experience.

With that information, will you promise never again to participate in these PIP and similar threads? I've done so, and you may consider that I only broke that vow to try helping you in the hope that you'll never show up in one of these threads in the future.

I kind of notice right now that I can't get adsense on any of my browsers

Maybe they are posting the PIPs?

Thanks. I kind of like reading the PIP threads, but I'll try to refrain from posting in them. :-) That shouldn't be hard, since I'd starve to death if I relied on AdSense for my living.

mayest, I don't think Go60Guy was serious, or at least I hope he wasn't. Feel free to post as often as you like in whatever threads you choose. This is a free and open forum and I think Go60Guy was just having some fun with a "newbie", that being you.

No PIP here in upstate NY, but I will be back to post when I do get it. ;-)

I think this may be the latest payment in my 3 years with Adsense.
Must have been slowed down because of the complications dealing with the .cn or (fake dot cn) spam problem.

We used to see payment before month 2 end, too. Now I notice it says EFT payments should be before the 5th of month 3. When did that happen!

Yes, this is a little disrespectful, especially considering money starts coming in the 1st of the previous month. I just got an email from Linkshare this morning that said they would be paying weekly, instead of every two weeks. They were already better than Goog at payment, now even better again.

Net 30 is bull. Google is the most overvalued and arrogant company on the planet, IMO.

well thats one of the side effects of becaming BIG!
4:22 pm on Sep 26, 2007 (gmt 0)



Well... testing0, c'mon now... being big doesn't automatically equate to overvalued and arrogant. Why I can think of... um... I can think of...

I guess you're right.

Still not the end of the month here in Australia... 27th here today.
That would make the 26th over there in the US.. so, hrmm.. I'm not worrying as last month .. Aug 27 Payment issued.

So... don't stress, they have been paying fine. Don't expect payment before the last day of the month then anything before that is a bonus, I say!

consider weekend!

people in USA get EFT next business day but in europe it takes 48 hours :/
so here we get it maybe around 2-3th of next month.

Yes, sometimes even 2 days in Canada. What is unsettling is that it usually starts the process by this time and can take 2 days to go to issued which means if it is not done by the end of today EFT may not hit the bank till Monday. Even if people consider it all just gravy they may still budget it into their plans, they deserve a regular payment date, lets hope Google considers that as one of the next new features.

Then they should take into account that the payment will arrive before the 5th, which is stated clearly on the AdSense website:

I really don't agree with the last statement at all.

Adsense payments have come as early as the 23rd of the month and once you start getting used to getting payments around this time you get upset when the payments don't come.

Even "regular" jobs pay on specific dates.

Adsense makes such a big deal of saying how they will "finalize" earnings early - but that doesn't seem to make the payment date any earlier.

Yup, close to a 2 week window. The wealthier the individual the less its a concern. Most posting in a pip thread i bet are in the same position, either not getting rich, or even making a full time living from it. Some that are getting huge payments may be here because they are excited. When Adsense almost provides enough for living on , you get used to it, cut back on your part time work at all, serp shuffle hits and Yoink!
