More good news from Google and Western Union

Just right after Paypal let us withdraw money, Google and Western Union brought us good news about money withdrawal. Last year there was news about Google Adsense testing out payment through Western Union, and today this method has been confirm available. Country listed below can now received their Adsense payment through Western Union agents. These countries are China, Malaysia, Pakistan, Romania, Philippines, Argentina, Chile, Peru and Colombia. You can just cash out the day after the payment is made. You can check if a Western Union Agent is in your area HERE.

This really saves us a lot of time, and I mean a lot of time. Below is the time comparison.

Payment by check--> snail mail (3 weeks) --> Bank in check (Clearance 4 weeks)

Payment by Western Union--> Next day

It saves us about 2 month time. My first Adsense check took me about 3 month because I need to wait for the snail mail to confirm my address. The waiting time really can make you crazy because you’ll worry that the mail might get lost. Can’t really sit tight unless you’ve receive the mail. This new payment method really helps a lot. Mostly mentally help.

One thing I’m concern about is that with this payment method we still have to go to Western Union agent every month to cash out. Wouldn’t it be great if we could set up a bank account with the Western Union agent and instruct the payment to transfer directly to our bank account? Save us the trouble to visit the bank each month. Plus you know how fast the services in the bank can be, if you know what I mean.
