Google adsense in your currency

    Has anyone else outside the US noticed an announcement on their Google adsense dashboard that earnings will soon be displayed in local currencies? The threshold for Australian Dollar pay outs is a$150, apparently, instead of the default $100us that it was before. It looks like this is going to be made standard in some countries.

      Yup - I was coerced into switching my reporting and they made it clear that it will eventually be mandatory.

    Yep, I've switched to £'s, just when I was starting to get used to thinking in $'s too. 

    The only thing I was curious about is, if you get a 1 cent click, do they round it up to a penny or round it down to nothing.

    Hopefully they will ignore NZ with its volatile currency and 4 million people - 2.5 of which have Adsense accounts with regular payouts - the last thing I want is another currency in my accounting!

    It wanted me to change to £, but then said it would affect payout levels, and directed me to a page which only showed payout limits for $ and euros. So I'm waiting to see.

    LondonGirl: The sterling payout rate is now on the Google Adsense site and is £60.  The current exchange rate is around $1.65 to the £ so this is around $99 ie close to $100.  I guess the difference for Google is they don't loose out on shifts in currency as the exchange rate is determined at the time of each click.

    I guess I'll switch but I liked the idea of having a dollar income!

    Switched to £ sterling immediately i saw the notice. Feel more comfortable with this now. And threshold is £60. Seeing 1p is better than seeing 1cent.
