I finally got paid by Google Adsense for the first time after 1 and half years of blogging. Although the earning were not much, I was somewhat satisfied with it.
Anyway, I made my withdrawal through Western Union last week. As mentioned earlier in my blog, I proceeded to CIMB Branch in KL Sentral. The queue was rather long but I guess it’s worth the wait. Before you queue up, make sure you’ve filled the form located at the form section. The form has a yellow colour heading.
I knew which form to take as this is my 3rd time withdrawing money via Western Union. You might notice that in the Receiver column there isn’t enough space to fill in a typical Malaysian address which is so freaking long. So what I did was, I only put my house number and the street name in the form. As long it matched your details in your Identification Card.
In the Sender column, I filled in
First name : Google Inc.
Address : 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway
Mountain View CA 94043
Telephone no: (650) 253–4000
Note that CA stands for California and 94043 is the Zip-code/ Poscode. I printed out my Statement of Earnings as my reference. Make sure you fill in the exact amount that you’re receiving from Adsense. As for the “City, state/province, country money sent from” part, just fill in CA, USA. Then fill in the 10–digit MTCN number you got from the Google Adsense payment detail page. And you’re done with the form.
Just queue up and wait for you turn. During my queue, I saw a lady transacting her Western Union withdrawal as well. The amount she was withdrawal was quite shocking. As I looked at the screen of the money counter, it stated 300. OMG!! 300 RM50 notes per form. She was holding 3 piece of form by the way. =.=”
Previously, i’ve opted to receive my Google Adsense payment thru Western Union Quick Cash. I’ve just received my payment details that contains info such as Payment Type, Payment Date, Money Transfer Control Number (MTCN) & Payment Amount.
The payment is available for pick-up the day after the payment date which is stated in the payment detail. I find it weird because the Payment Date is posted as 25th Oct 2007. Usually when a money transfer is sent by Western Union, you should be able to receive the money on the same day itself. I’ve only received the payment details 2 hours ago and it’s already 1st Nov. If you did not pickup your funds within 35 days from the Payment Date, the amount will be credited back to your AdSense account.
I was worried that Western Union will charge a certain fee to get my funds. After checking out Ades’s Blog, I felt relieved as his blog mentioned that there will not be any charges imposed on the funds. I guess I’ll be going to KL Sentral later at noon to try to pick-up my funds.
I’ll post the updates after I get my hands on the cash =P
Western Union payment method will definately shorten the time to get your hands on your Adsense earning by at least 2–3 weeks.

I just found out that Google Adsense has enabled the option to get the earning payout by Western Union. It’s a lot more faster than waiting for the cheque. Standard Delivery checks are sent by regular mail and should arrive within 2-3 weeks of the mailing date. Meanwhile, Secured Express Delivery checks are sent via courier and should arrive within 1 week at a fee of $24.00. Western Union payment are processed on the same day
