    Is it possible to direct funds from Google Adsense to Paypal?
    Second, they asked for my paypal account. I gave it but is it possible to earn with just the paypal account solely?

    Google Adsense pays via cheque or bank account.

    Hubpages pay via paypal.

    Never the twain shall meet.

      thanks @Wrylit,
      one question, once you add Google Adsense, how do you add it to the page? They say I have google adsense completed but does it really take days for Google Adsense to appear

        Have you added your unique adsense identification to your earnings page? (look at the top of your account page).

        Once that is done you will start earning.

          or is it the publisher ID at the top of the google adsense?
          the affiliate code is already in the hubpage earnings page?

      Is the accounting process that difficult that HP will not be able to get a cheque processed.

        Issuing and mailing paper checks is expensive and time-consuming. Paypal is also a safer method of transferring money overseas.  Checks can be stolen or lost in the mail. Paypal is a much better option for HP and is available in your country.

          That is true, however, Paypal charges commision, the bank then charges commision and handling fees.
          I am not able to get the bank in this Case FNB, whom Paypal have the agreement to act for them.
          They are unable to do this in my case as I only have a second card and not full banking rights.
          As for Security of payments, a simple Electronic Funds Transfer would be the answer.
          Then the question of lost or stolen funds would not be possible!
          Thanks for your response,

          Rodney

            Can't you get your wife to claim it for you?

        Cheques incur handling fees too.  HubPages would issue US dollar cheques, which your bank would charge around $10 to accept.   If they issued foreign currency cheques, then HP would have to pay charges at their end.  So that's not an option.   

        Anyway, as a staffer said on another thread, HP has to do a cost/benefit analysis on every additional service they offer.   There is a small number of countries where Paypal isn't available, many of them non-English-speaking countries.  Widening the net to encourage writers from those countries is likely to attract more poor-quality writers than high-quality writers.  That's not a prejudice - other sites have tried it and found that to be the case, to the point where some sites won't accept writers from certain countries at all.  Part of the problem is that in many of these countries, English is widely spoken so people think they are good enough to write - but the local version of English is so different from American English, it's not acceptable to HubPages' main audience.

        It is certainly tough on good writers from those areas, and it's especially tough on English-speaking countries like South Africa - but HP is running a business not a charity, so it has to make its bottom line its priority.

    The adsense code looks something like this like this: ca-pub-934625597082172099. Find the 'earnings' button near the top of your 'my account' page.
