Details of the news provided by the Adsense Team below:

We're excited to tell you that we're offering a new payment method for some countries. If you're located in Argentina, Chile, China (Mainland), Colombia, Malaysia, Pakistan, Peru, the Philippines, or Romania, you can now sign up for Western Union Quick Cash, a new form of payment that lets you receive your AdSense payments in cash using the worldwide Western Union money transfer service. Payments will be available for pickup at your local Western Union agent the day after they are issued, according to our normal payment schedule.

It's free to receive your AdSense payments by Western Union; you'll no longer need to wait for a check to arrive in the mail. this choice can also cut down on bank fees and long clearing times associated with depositing checks.

Before you sign up, please keep these important points in mind:

* As mentioned above, Western Union Quick Cash is only available in Argentina, Chile, China (Mainland), Colombia, Malaysia, Pakistan, Peru, the Philippines, and Romania. We'll be sure to let you know if we're able to offer new payment options to additional publishers.

* This payment method is currently only available to individual payee names; we can't offer it to businesses.

* You'll need to bring your government-issued ID to pick up your payment, so please make sure that your AdSense account payee name exactly matches that of your ID. Please contact us if you need to update the payee name in your account.

* Payments must be picked up within 35 days of issuance or they will expire. If this happens, a payment hold will be placed on your AdSense account and the payment will be credited back to your account.

* Payments will be made in US dollars, but depending on your local Western Union agent, they may be picked up in your local currency.


  1. great news indeed! ang galing at libre pa! tama ba? hehehe

  2. hi. this is good news but i dont think its free. google says:

    "Please note that if your payment is above that amount, we will automatically send it to you via secured express delivery check and not Western Union Quick Cash. There is a fee associated with this service. This charge is visible in your publisher account - simply click the edit link under Payment details, on the My Account tab. If we update your form of payment to secured express delivery check, you'll continue to receive payments in this manner unless you change it back to Western Union Quick Cash within your account." from

  7. Western Union is no longer secure. Search for "adsense western union fraud" in google or check the blog posts below and you will see.

    Short story: Someone is cashing out their AdSense Western Union Payments. How did they get the MTCN of the payment? Probably inside job. So beware if you are using Western Union.
