Your payments are currently on hold. Action is required to release payment. Sounds familiar? No? Well if you are new to Google Adsense, the pink box will rear its ugly head sooner or later. What isn't familiar now, will soon be! This hub is going to save you a whole heap of trouble, loss of revenue and stress! I will cover:
- What to look out for in your Google Adsense
- How to action the dreaded pink box
- What to expect when you receive the message
What to Look Out For In Your Google Adsense
So you are new to this. You are as keen as mustard to start earning advertising revenue from those articles you have been writing. You sign up for adsense and the advertisements appear on your blogs or hubs spontaneously. Great you think! The revenue starts trickling, penny-by-penny and, although it isn’t much, you feel proud that people are reading what you have to say.
One day you notice that there haven’t been any pennies building up in your account. So you decide to leave it so it can build – you don’t want to be obsessing about it too much, now do you? You might, therefore leave it for a couple of weeks. When you check, you notice a little pink message saying your account is on hold. You might want to leave it – it might resolve itself. You know that you have done nothing wrong. My advice is DON’T LEAVE IT!
This pink notice STOPS you from getting any further revenue until you complete a set of actions. This can take up to three weeks to complete. This will delay your revenue stream. You will not get any revenue during the hold period. This means NO PAY PER CLICKS on your hubs or blogs until the process has been actioned!
The message in pink states the following:
‘Your payments are currently on hold. Action is required to release payment. More Details’
Now look at the image to remind yourself of what this message looks like...
A Message That Looks Like This Needs Action!

How to Action The Dreaded Pink Box and What To Expect
This message could make you think that you don’t have to do anything. After all, you have a long way to go before you reach the payment threshold. Don’t kid yourself! If you don’t action this, you will be waiting forever for payment. There won’t be any further increase in the payments. All that wonderful click revenue will go directly to Google Adsense coffers! Your article clicks will be worthless to you but like gold to Google Adsense! The longer you leave it, the longer it will take before you can sort it out and the more you are working in aid of that great Google in cyberspace!
Now, you need to click on ‘More Details’. This will take you to a set of verification actions. The whole process takes approximately three weeks. This, undoubtedly, is Google Adsense’s tactics to generate more revenue for themselves, so you will need to accept this lost time and therefore, loss of revenue during the verification process.
- You will need to confirm your details online – you might even need to enter tax information, methods of payment and update your address details.
- If you choose to have Adsense transfer your money to your account, you will have to wait for a deposit to be made to the designated account. This is called verification of funds. It is then that you go to your adsense account and enter the amount that has been deposited in the instruction field.
- Confirm, via your account, an electronic automated telephone call.
- Await a pin postal verification note in the mail.
Once You Have Verified and Completed All Actions, Adsense will return... phew!
Once all these actions are completed, then Google Adsense will operate to your revenue benefit and not theirs!
