Adsense Payout via Western Union

Updated on December 26, 2016

Adsense Payment thru Western Union

For Google Adsense publishers in the Philippines, news about getting your Adsense earnings through Western Union Quick Cash is indeed a welcome development. This Google Adsense payment channel is highly recommended due to the following advantages:

It is secure.

Getting your payment via Western Union is deemed safer than getting your check go through our snail mail system.It is fast - You get you earnings within at most a day after your payment notice is posted in your Google Adsense Account. The previously popular Adsense check through the mail will take anywhere from 3-4 weeks or even longer. Less waiting time for you to get those Adsense payout.

It is convenient.

You can get your Adsense money through any of the Western Unions's 6,300 agent locations nationwide. Moreover, you have the choice to get your payout in either US Dollars or Philippine peso denominations, whatever suits you.

Finally, and most importantly, it is FREE!

For those who are barely making over a few hundred dollars from their Adsense, this is great news. Cashing in your Google Adsense checks will incur bank charges, and if you opt to have it delivered express, that will cost you another $20-$24. Now, by withdrawing your earnings via Western Union, you get your hard-earned money complete!

      Western Union is no longer secure. Search for "adsense western union fraud" in google or check the blog posts below and you will see.

      Short story: Someone is cashing out their AdSense Western Union Payments. How did they get the MTCN of the payment? Probably inside job. So beware if you are using Western Union.

      when im choosing western union in payment mode, it says

      We've noticed that the state code listed in your billing address does not match any of the official Mexican state codes accepted by Western Union. In order to receive payments by Western Union Quick Cash, please update your state code here.

      any work around here?

      favor naman po paki answer na lang through email thanks!

      Hi Rhapsody. I'm not so sure if the same thing works in China. I am writing based only on my experience here in the Philippines.

      when signing up for adsense, I couldnt find that option it just took my address. Also I was wondering, is this new development something unique to the Philippines or is it worldwide. Im currently in China and would love to figure out how to configure my adsense account so that I can recieve $$$ via WU.
