seeing as the adsense info said they would do this anyway, i decided to click the GO button

all looks great EXCEPT, last months earnings (may) now show as remaining USD in the account, and after reading the supplied links, lo and behold, this remaining USD will be added the 15th approx next month to my new AUD earnings....

so this says to me, they wont pay me this month at all, rather wait yet another month when they tack on my USD earnings from May...

can anyone tell me if i have read this whole thing correctly ?

cheers

Well, I am now showing PIP *on the USD page*
So I guess it will, indeed, slide into my bank account just before the month closes (knocks on wood)

Very, very confusing! I am guessing that, had this been offered before the 12th of the month and I had taken it up then, that the payment would have transferred from the USD to the AUD page.

Seeing how this looks compulsory I might make the change 30th June OZ time.

If I was doing it again, I'd go July 1 :)
I suppose 11:30pm June 30 is the same thing...

(I have to point out that the supplier saying that it will be compulsory eventually, with no specified date, doesn't mean it will ever happen...)

Yep, drives me nuts. Then again she recently had a mini-stroke and an urgent mastectomy for breast cancer all in a fortnight.

Nah! She's a gem, but don't tell her I said so.

Dry sense of humour? Sticky me and I'll tell you my nephew's [nearly as old as me] all time classic from 1968. Still breaks me up.

He can "play me off a break" anyday.

Aaargh!

Done the "dirty deed". A touch of an hour late.

After ElvisFan from the "GumLeaf Mafia" gave me a heads up.

GumNut Mafia if you please ...

Just wondering what others found... did you get the amount payment that was calculated at the end of the previous month or did adsense re-adjust at the later payment date... if you know what I mean?

Ah! You're a GumNut person. Ever use them as a kid to make pretend "smoking pipes"? Well boys did. I'm a Gum Leaf person, used them between two thumbs [sort of] and blow as a whistle.

My June balance was presumably changed at the previous days exchange rate.

One potential positive is that throughout a month we'll hopefully get the benefit of the highs and lows of currency fluctuations.

For some perverse reason the exchange rate always seemed to be at its worst at the end of a month.

After so many years getting stats in USA dollars it seems a little weird seeing my stats in AUD ... like I'm not earning "real" money.

When I changed from USD to EUR I was paid as usual - on time

I wasn't... somehow my payments were put 'on hold' by accident (although in my control panel all looked fine)

They made up for it though, at the beginning of april I received an email explaining the situation, and that I would receive the late payment ASAP, and they also included my March earnings to make up for it :) (so my feb payment was about 10 days late, but my march payment was 3 weeks early)

@marcel oh, that is annoying - it means that if they wanted then they could do all the payments a little early and avoid this whole 'which month will we pay you in?' debacle :(
