I've just received an email to notify me of the payment.

This is the first time I've ever received such an email.

I'm guessing this is a new feature.

a heads-up every month when your money's on its way. :)


However didn't these notifications arrive AFTER the publishers had actually received their funds?

ASA, thanks for the comment, but then why didn't everyone get one of these messages? I know I didn't.

I didn't receive one. Anytime I see notice/pip in the adsense system, money is already in my account. If you are trying to help adsense publishers plan ahead, how about telling us which day of the month payment will be issued a month in advance. For example, will payment be issued this month on February 25th? I can't see how getting an email a day or two before I receive payment provides a time period for planning, in particular when the same information is basically available by logging in. This just seems like a different medium to deliver the same information already available. I feel like I'm missing something more than an email.

That is correct, they came after payment was made, in my case, the day after and on top of that, an adjustment.

These emails are being sent out by our team to help publishers better anticipate their payments. The idea is to cut down on payments-related issues by helping publishers plan in advance.


What a WOMBAT* and everyone else who had one.

*Waste Of My Bandwith And Time

It was not a good idea to send it, esp. in these days of phishing emails.
There is no need to plan in advance. It is already explained when we get paid. By the 10th of each month IIRC.

And then there's the carbon footprint to think about.

I would think given all the PIP threads that get started here that you guys would be happy to get a heads-up every month when your money's on its way.


Happy with PIP threads ? LOL Yeah right.
I get the HU every month anyway. It's called logging onto my Adsense account and looking.

Agreed.

There may be lots of things people do not understand about the Adsense system. How payments are made is NOT one of them. :)

The adSense team seems to have a sense of humour.

Just when I thought all was lost.. We have this thread on the front page of WW..

Hahaha...I've finally received it this morning! Plus:

Remember, EFT bank transfer is our recommended form of payment.


Yep, I tried actioning that 2 months ago and nothing happened!

I'll stay with cheques then.

lol , received the mail today in India. The cheque (payment) is the most awaited event in the month for an adSense publisher. He is unlikely to 'forget' about this event and the 'reminder' is certainly not required.

Cheque has already been cashed and money already utilized a while back. Thanks adSense for the regular payments. The mail (after ) the event is not required.

lol even i received the mail today. Money is in account long back.
Mail should have been sent out when the cheques are sent out through courier.
Can ASA throw some light on this delay in mail?

Thanks

Would be better if they sent the payment details as well.

Why ?
You already know what the payment details are by logging onto your account.
Secondly, these emails were sent out after people had received their money.

Which was all rather pointless.

I accept what ASA said that payments are a major issue. I'll bet the enquiries are largely confined to specific geographic locations and probably mostly not in cases of direct deposit e.g. Australia and New Zealand, Canada, UK, USA and the like.

Why not direct the emails to those areas known for problems?

Yeah, it is like raising your beer glass in the bar and yelling, "Cheers!". PIP thread live on forever . . .

PS. I never got the email, but got the money! No complaints.
