Not sure if it matters, I receive payment by check.

No PIP in Mexico (EFT). Since this will be my first payment, how long will it take to go from PIP to Payment in Process.

1) Does anyone know if "Payment in Process" means that Google has made the electronic funds transfer?

2) If yes, I guess it's a matter of waiting for your bank to make the funds available correct?

jason1989, for me, using eft, payment usually hits my bank either the day after or two days after pip. but i'm pretty sure it's a bank-related issue, plus not sure how being in a different country might affect things either. so your mileage may vary.

Actually I think it does matter because those that get their adsense earnings by check will get them later than those of us who use EFT - thereby meaning that the checks go out earlier to be able to be had by the end of the month

Although the adsense pages have said that there is no preference

Dazzlindonna,

Thanks for responding. My screen is not yet reporting "Payment in Progress" at this time and every one of the Google requirements have been met. Note, I signed up for EFT.

A friend in the U.S. had received PIP status as of this morning, but tells me that she gets paid in check.

So...no PIP status in Mexico yet.

It is hard for me to imagine why any U.S. publishers are still using check payment instead of EFT. Actually, I am surprised to hear that any do.

For the additional cost to Google, since EFT has been around for a long time, they should just discontinue the paper check like many major companies and branches of the government.

I wonder if people who are new to AdSense get paid after people who have been on the program for a while?

I am scheduled to receive my first payment. This is a message on my Payment History page:

"You are scheduled to be sent a payment by the 30th of this month."

Correct me if I am wrong... but I tend to think that Google releases payments by dollar amount; least first, highest last.

As my AdSense income has increased over the years, my payment dates have been extended out.

It will be interesting to note what exchange rate Google uses this time - last month it was very unfavorable and many people (myself included) were shocked and disappointed.

WordsInCollision,

That is a good question.

I was hoping that I'd be getting paid according to my banks current exchange rate. But this would mean that Google would pay in U.S. Dollars, and if I remember correctly, I don't think that this is the case, not sure about this.

Or I wonder if the currency conversion is done at Google's bank upon transfer to foreign bank accounts?

This will be my first Google payment, thus I don't know how they work the currency conversions.

I've already checked around for conversion to OZ, three wildly varying sources:

CBA:
Calculation based on rates as of 25-Nov-2008
Exchange Rate 0.6630

XE Currency:

Live rates at 2008.11.25 20:56:44 UTC
United States Dollars Australia Dollars
1 USD = 1.53283 AUD 1 AUD = 0.652390 USD

OANDA:

Tuesday, November 25, 2008
Median price = 1.57518 / 1.57632 (bid/ask)
Minimum price = 1.53666 / 1.53730
Maximum price = 1.60411 / 1.60539

We shall see in a few days what was actually used...

If I would have gotten paid yesterday, I would have received about the equivalent to $20USD more (because of the currency conversion) than if I end up getting paid today.

Still haven't gotten paid yet so let's see what tomorrow brings.
