After 48 years er 4 years, I finally received my first payment from Google Adsense. I went to the nearest Western Union branch in our area upon receiving the MTCN or Money Transfer Control Number from Google. It took me only a few minutes to get the cash. I just filled out some documents, presented two IDs and the MTCN number to the WU staff and it’s done. I hope my next transaction (hopefully not another four years) will also be hassle-free like this one.
I’m counting the weeks before I finally get my first ever payment from Google Adsense. If I may recall, it was in 2009, the same year when I set up my first personal blog that I started earning as ad publisher. Now, after four long years, I will be able to reach the payment threshold. I’m just hoping that I won’t encounter any problem similar to payment hold or worse cancellation of account. I heard sad stories from friends who experienced problem with their account. And then there are happy stories of those who regularly receive their checks from Google Adsense. I will be happy to share my own experience with you once I get the check.
