Update: These are the new countries that both AdSense publisher (since end of 2013) and Google Play merchants (Android developers, beginning Feb 6 2014) can receive payment from Google via wire transfer. To receive payouts, merchants must add a bank account to the Google Wallet Merchant Center.
Please take note that on average it takes up to 5 working days from the automatic payment in progress (PIP) to payment receipt shown in your AdSense account payment dashboard to payment is reflected and updated in your actual bank account statement. Also, there is charges to receive money via wire transfer. For example, Maybank charges RM5 per wire (telegraphic) transfer receipt.
For comparison, there is no charges to receive payment via Western Union and you will be able to receive payment via Western Union as soon as it is issued. However, using wire transfer will save your time and hassle to cash out your Western Union payment at its agents. If you are worried about the charges to receive money via wire transfer, you might want to set higher payment threshold by changing the payment schedule settings.
Hello,AdSense support provides detailed instructions on getting paid: receiving payments by wire transfer. To receive your AdSense payment via wire transfer, you'll need the following information (all required) when setting up wire transfer as your new primary form of payment. For example, if you are using Maybank account:
We have an important update about your next AdSense payment. Due to internal policy changes, Western Union will no longer issue certain high-value payments to AdSense partners located in your country. To ensure that you receive your payment this month, we are providing the option to receive payment by U.S. Dollar international wire transfer to your bank account. We recommend using wire transfer payments for speed and security.
Google does not charge a fee for sending wire transfer payments, but please be aware that your bank may charge a fee to receive the deposit. We recommend asking your bank about the process to receive a wire transfer and for information on associated fees. Any currency exchange from U.S. Dollars to another currency will be handled by your bank.
We upgraded your account to use our new payments system. We no longer require payment settings to be updated by the 15th calendar date of each month. Instead, payments are issued on a rolling basis beginning on the 21st of the month. We will issue your payment after you set up a form of payment other than Western Union.
Please find more information about wire transfer payments in our help center.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and appreciate your patience and understanding as we work through these policy changes with Western Union.
Sincerely, The Google AdSense Team
