Finally it's there. Now you can receive payments via western union next day after the payment is issued.
For this you need a Picture ID and MTCN No.
Payments will be upto certain limits.I think it varys for different countries.

Time to get payments more quickly from Google. Today i noticed new payment option in my account that is Western Union quick cash.
After doing some search i figured out this option is available for limited countries that include China, Malaysia, Pakistan, Romania, Philppines, Argentina, Chile, Peru and Colombia.

Official Words [google.com]

Thanks Google for letting me get payments more quickly.

Glad you noticed. :) Yes, publishers with individual payee accounts in certain countries can now receive their payments through Western Union Quick Cash.

We haven't officially announced the launch yet because there were a couple language translation issues, which should be fixed this afternoon. However, this feature has successfully launched, and if you live in one of the countries contentadsblog mentioned, you can sign up for this payment method now.

Expect a blog post once all the kinks are worked out. For now, you can find more info at [google.com...] .

Good question - no, there are no publisher fees currently associated with Western Union payments.

Western Union charges are higher than bank charges for regular checks although you get your money faster and safer (checks can go missing in the mail). I suppose it's all about whehter you want to pay for the added benefits or not.

I am pleased to see they are still improving their payment options. It has been years in the wait for EFT's to places like Singapore, Hong Kong and Thailand.

Hopefully this will also be an option soon.

I second that Visit Thailand. Secured check is becoming useless for me now because most of the time nobody is at home so the dhl guy has to come back some other time to deliver my check. Sometimes my wife's regular delivery check arrives first. I hope google do not neglect us and think that we are satisfied with the current payment option. Hong Kong banks are one of the finest in the world, why can't we utilize them. Please give us the EFT option as well.

There is currently a BOYCOTT on Western Union here in Philippines because of high money transfer charges.

There's always Paypal. ;) PayPal announced its service now offers account balance withdrawals to Visa-branded credit, debit, or prepaid cards in 26 international markets. Yes, Phillipines is covered too now. It likely won't happen since Google & Paypal are direct competitors but all you AdSense publishers can petition Google.

WU is used as a vehicle for a lot of scams. I hope Google can provide some consumer protection/safeguards.

The option is available in 9 countries so far. It would be useful anywhere where they do not offer electronic transfers.

I really do not see what is so difficult about just making this available globally.

Many countries Law does not allow income from Business to be transferred through WU.
Perhaps because it will be too hard for Govt. to track the WU transfers.

Our payments specialists are already working on offering Western Union payments in additional countries, but wanted to go ahead and pilot the system in a limited set of countries for now. Assuming everything goes smoothly, we hope that a much wider set of publishers will see this option in their accounts soon.

Thanks for your patience,

Wow, no more waiting 2 weeks for the check to get here and 6 more weeks for the bank to clear it. Also, the bank takes away about 1.5% of my check, so if WU really is free, this is great news. ^_^

By the way, how does WU know that the fees have already been covered by Google?

Western Union service is fine , but payment charges is too much high. I think everyone has to boycott this service so that they minimize the charges in less develop countries.

Jafo, there is an EFT option in the US so there's no need for Western Union there. I imagine that it is because EFT is difficult to establish in certain countries with less up-to-date banking systems that Western Union is being offered there.
