Picking up Western Union payments in the Asia-Pacific region AdSense Pro Payments 10/21/13 9:24 PM

Hello publishers,

We would like to give you an update about picking up Western Union payments for some publishers in the Asia-Pacific region.  Countries include:

  • Cambodia

  • China

  • Indonesia

  • Malaysia

  • Nepal

  • Pakistan

  • Singapore

  • South Korea

  • Taiwan

  • Thailand

  • Vietnam

If your AdSense account has been upgraded to our new payments system, then these instructions apply to your Western Union payment issued this month.  (Upgraded accounts display a “See your previous payments” button at the bottom of the Transaction History page.)  Most AdSense accounts in these countries have not yet been upgraded, so this only applies to some publishers.

For upgraded accounts, you will need to indicate to the Western Union agent that the payment was sent by Google Ireland Ltd:

  • Google Ireland Ltd
    Dublin, Ireland

Although the payment receipt in your account's Transaction History will display Google Asia Pacific Pte. Ltd. as the payer, please inform the Western Union agent that Google Ireland Ltd. is the payment sender when you collect your AdSense payment.  We are working on a fix to display these additional instructions on the payment receipt.

Publishers with accounts that have not yet been upgraded to the new payments system should continue to pick up payments using the same process as before.  If your account was not yet upgraded, then continue to use the Google Inc., USA sender information as described in our help center.

We apologize for any confusion and appreciate your patience and understanding.
