Pin Code in Adsense

    I have requested the pin code several times but the letter hasn't reached my home yet. What can I do now? There is nothing wrong with the address.

      Why did you have to request the pin code?  Is that a new procedure?

      I didn't have to request the pin code, it got sent automatically once I reached a certain figure. 

      If they sent it and you didn't get it, your account will be suspended temporarily as Wry says.  If your account hasn't been suspended yet, it means they probably didn't even send it.

    How long have you waited? I believe it can take up to six weeks to some locations. If you request it several times or it's sent and you don't enter it, I believe your Adsense account can be suspended temporarily. Maybe try and contact them if it's been longer than six weeks?

    I am still earning, so my account has not been suspended. I think it has been around 6 weeks. I would better contact with them after waiting a few more weeks.

      It should take 4-6 weeks if I'm correct. I would definitely contact them again. Getting the pin takes a while, but it shouldn't be longer than 6 weeks, there might be a problem in the mail, they forgot to send it, or something.

      Just to check you understand the process:

      When you reach the minimum earnings threshold, they automatically send you a PIN.  You can't request it, you have to wait for them.

      If you receive an email saying they've sent your PIN and you don't receive it, then you can request a replacement.

      Is that what you did?

        Actually after earning 10 bucks [not the minimum threshold of 100 dollar] you are asked to enter the pin. Until you enter that they keep your payment on hold.

          Saleheen, Marisa is wright smile  the moment you earn your first $10 Google intimates you that your PIN will be sent to you and we are not required to request for it.. it is an automated process.. I guess you shouldn't wait any further you need to contact Google support and get this sorted out before they come up with some silly stuff.. this keeps happening to many in the Asian region.. so get on to the Google forums .. Best wishes to you smile

          Yes, that's right - and they send it to you automatically, you don't have to request it.

          If you did send in a request, it probably confused them - because you're only supposed to request a PIN when the old one has been lost! 

          Sofs is right - get on the Google forums and explain what you've done, and see what they say.

          Sofs, it's good of you to share your experience on this forum. Too bad AdSense continues to cause so many people headaches, when their time would be better spent doing something else. I hope you are well.

          Thanks Saleheensblog, I feel better now that you got your letter delivered. There are some - although not many - things that cannot be accomplished online. Good luck to you!

    I'm in the same situation as saleheensblog with regards to needing the pin code however only became aware of this at the weekend.

    My adsense account said the pin code would come out to me via email in 3-5 days.

      I am not aware of that AdSense ever sends PINs via email. The whole point of the PIN is to verify the physical address.

    Thanks Website Examiner

    It specifically said on the screen that they will send an email so we'll see what happens in the next few days!
