Today in the mail from Adsense....

Got the "Payments on hold" RED ALERT banner last week.

Had to go through payment authorization allover again - a real pain for publishers outside the US or EU

The mail below explains why...

All done - took 4 days to get it sorted again.


=======================================

Dear publisher,

You may have noticed some new changes to the “Payments” and “Account settings” pages in your account and a red alert banner saying ‘Your payments are currently on hold’. We’ve made some changes to improve our payments system, and your account has been included in our first wave of accounts to benefit from these changes. Here's a summary of the required actions, changes and added benefits of the new payments processes.

1. Required action: Enter your IBAN and BIC account details before April 20th.
To continue to receive payments via Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) you must enter your International Bank Account Number (IBAN) and Bank Identifier Code (BIC) account details into your AdSense account prior to April 20th so that your April payment can be sent to your bank account successfully. If you are not aware of your IBAN details, you’ll find these details on your bank account statement. Instructions on how to enter and verify your bank account details can be found here. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause as we continue to improve our payments system.

2. Redesigned Payment summary and Payment settings pages
- Payment method is now called "Form of payment".
- Unpaid finalised earnings is now called "Current balance".
- Redesigned transaction history table shows you the latest activities at the top.
- New toolbar support allows you to filter, print, export, or download transaction information.

3. More flexibility with your payment settings
- New extended timeline allows you to change your payment information until the 20th of any month.
- You can choose any payment threshold greater than the default payment threshold based on your reporting currency.
- You can also hold your payments until a specified date.

4. Improved navigation of the payments interface
- Centralised locations to manage your Payment settings and Payee profile.
- Contextual help is displayed based on the pages you navigate to.

We’ll continue to add improvements over the coming weeks and months including a link to the old Payment summary page so that you can view all previous payments. Rest assured that your March payment was sent to your previously registered bank account and in addition your March earnings will be finalised soon and will appear on your new Payment summary page shortly.

We’ve also created a special contact form for you to provide us with feedback on these changes and to receive dedicated payments support.


Kind regards,
The Google AdSense Payments Team

FINALLY! I could never understand why the history was in reverse.

They want us to re-enter payment details that they already have? Weird...
Nomadman, can I ask what country you are in?
(I'm in Australia and we don't call our bank account reference numbers by those names... I'm wondering if they will use the same names for me)

@leadegroot. I'm in the Eurozone. Bank transfers originate from Google Ireland for me. They need BIC / IBAN codes to issue international bank transfers since i'm not in Ireland.

If Google is located in your country - bank transfers are made within the Australian bank system. So no need for BIC / IBAN codes.

I tripped the change in Adsense accidently last week - before the mail went out....

@IanCP not a one.

I do wonder if we (.au) will be affected by this - payments have been issued by Citibank Europe for the last couple of months (used to be Worldlink Payments) and I wonder if that is part of the change?
Seems stupid to have to reenter the same numbers...

Talk to yourself while I check.

Yep. Off my online bank statement:

Direct Credit 123456 CITIBANK EUROPE
GOOGLE ADSENSE

I've a vague recollection in the back of my mind that when we switched over to EFT it was utterly seamless.
Seems stupid to have to reenter the same numbers

To Australians? Yes.

You get my point?
