Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
No PIP for me in UK. Don't remember it ever being this late before.
It's not late. It's people expecting it to be early all the time.
You are scheduled to be sent a payment by the 30th of this month. If you are receiving a standard delivery cheque, please allow up to 4 weeks for delivery, depending on your location. If you are using EFT or secured express delivery, your payment should arrive by the 5th of next month.
It doesn't matter if Johnny in Mongolia has received his money or not. It doesn't mean his next door neighbour has. His next door neighbour may use a different bank, a different payment method. All it does mean that Johnny got his.
As long as you have obeyed the TOS, earnt $100 or more, then just wait for it to arrive.
I have seen mine say "Payment issued" in my account, but took the bank two days later to say that it was there, and that was EFT.
And, that was after others were saying that they had already been paid, when mine was still saying PIP.
For those who depend entirely on adsense income, it could be a problem, whatever dates payments are sent, they should at least be regular.
Last month though, my status was PIP for 5 days (starting on a Friday early morning) before the deposit (and Payment Notification) on Tuesday.
Oh, and as I write this, just got PIP 8:43 PST.
Payment is late.
No it's not. It is the 1st of May today.
"your payment should arrive by the 5th of next month".
Correct...by the 5th of next month.
Just looking at my calender again... yep, still the 1st today.
That's the latest we should expect it.
Correct. You are getting good at this ;)
But as G have paid much earlier for as long as I can remember, this is a little bizarre.
Not really. Not when you think about it.

They are regular. So is Easter, and that has a date that changes too.
You are very clever in highlighting the fact it is the 1st today, but you forget that in many countries the banking system shuts down for the next 3 days and banks re-open again on the 5th.
So, take the UK, generally it takes 3 working days from PIP to money in bank, so that means that in theory our money may not hit our bank account until Wednesday 6th as Monday the 4th is a Bank Holiday.
Before you use the bank Holiday as an excuse, you must remember our payments are processed in Ireland who also have a bank holiday on Monday so they ARE aware of it.
I thought about requesting a re-issue as they suggest on the payment history page, but guess what, the form is only suitable if you get paid by check, although the link to it states check of EFT.
