How to receive Google Adsense payments via Western Union

Google Adsense payments via Western Union

Google Adsense publishers can receive their earnings through the Western Union Quick Cash option.

Here’s a guide for those opting to use the WU payout method.

How to pick up a Western Union Quick Cash payment

1. Locate a Western Union agent that offers the Quick Cash service from the site:

2. Prepare the following before visiting the WU branch.

The amount of your payment

The Money Transfer Control Number (MTCN) for this payment

Your government-issued ID (Passport, Driver’s License, TIN ID, SSS ID, etc)

Sender’s information:

Google Inc.

1600 Amphitheatre Parkway

Mountain View, CA 94043


The payment amount and MTCN can be found by clicking on the ‘details’ link next to the Payment Issued line on My Account > Payment History in your Google Adsense account (see screenshot).

3. Go to the WU agent, show them the information in #2, and inform them you would like to pick up a Quick Cash payment.

A few notes:

You need to tell WU you are picking up a Quick Cash payment

You need to pick up the payment within 35 days or it will be credited back to your account.

Don’t forget to bring a valid government issued ID, the sender’s information, payment amount,
and MTCN.

Payments can be made in US Dollars but you have the option to receive it in your local currency.

Conversion rates depend on the rate used by WU on the pickup date

The Western Union Quick Cash method surely is a better alternative to Adsense’s Secured Express Delivery Checks because the former is FREE of charge (as opposed to Secured Checks’ $24 processing fee) and is available just one day after payment date (vs. Secured Checks’ 1-week lead time).
