Google Adsense payment through Western Union in the Philippines

Now When is payment through paypal next?

As early as fourth quarter of last year, Web publishers that have google adsense banners can now claim their payments in Western Union serving establishments

An example of your google ads dues payable from western union the next day is as follows: 

Payment Type:
Western Union Quick Cash
Payment Date:
Feb xx, 2008
Money Transfer Control Number (MTCN)
Payment Amount:
USD $xxxx.97
Your payment is available for pick-up the day after the payment date above

Remember to bring the following when you pick up your payment at a local Western Union agent:

  • The amount of your payment
  • The Money Transfer Control Number (MTCN) for this payment
  • Your government issued ID (Passport, Driver's License, National ID, etc)
  • You need to pick up the payment within 35 days or it will be credited back to your account
  • You can opt to be paid in local currency but Western Union’s rate is most probably lower, so better to receive the payment in dollars then just go to a money changer with better rates
  • Sender's information:
    Google Inc.
    1600 Amphitheatre Parkway
    Mountain View, CA 94043

Here are some of the benefits of WU quick cash as compared with Secured Express Delivery checks via DHL:

1. Instant delivery – You can pick up your payment a day after the payment date. Before WU, we had to wait for a whole month before our checks arrived, so this is a welcome improvement.  getting it via regular mail (25 days) and even via DHL Secured Express Delivery (5 days)
2. Instant cash – As though a whole month of waiting was not enough, we had to wait a month more for the bank to finish its procedure and convert US dollars to local currency. But no more! Now I can go to local Western Union pick-up center, pocket the cash, and walk back home with a smile on my face.
3. No bank fees – no more security fee ($24.00 Processing Fee) if you select Secured Express Delivery via DHL
4.Safer?– getting it via regular mail (25 days)-if you're from the Philippines, you know our mailing system is very prone to theft.



  1. 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.
