finalized earnings in AdSense

Some of the most important questions for website owners that use AdSense to earn money are about payments. So in this article I listed the most important questions that my clients and commenters keep asking me regarding AdSense payments.

What do I need to set up?

Before getting paid by AdSense you need to set up the payment information:

  • the right postal address (and confirm it)
  • provide tax information (not for all countries)
  • select a payment method

In case you opened your account and already included ads on your website before setting up your payment information, AdSense will hold the money for you until you entered all the information. Normally, they also bother you with notifications until you really validated all the data.

When do I get paid?

AdSense always calculates your income for the period of a month. At the beginning of the next month they review and recalculate your earnings. In the last week of the next month AdSense starts to send payments. Depending on the payment method, this might take some time. Here are some methods and the time they take until the money reaches you:

Standard delivery checks (US) 1-2 weeks
Standard delivery checks (non-US) 2-6 weeks
Secure delivery checks 5-7 weeks
EFT payments / bank transfer 4-10 days
Western Union Quick Cash 1 day
Rapida payments 2 days

What is a payment threshold?

A payment threshold is the minimal amount of earnings you need to gather in a row of months before getting paid. As you can see in the sample payment schedule below, you won’t get paid for the month you earned only $40, but when you earned $90 the next month you earned a total of $130 and so are eligible to get paid by AdSense.

However, the payment threshold is different by currency. Here are some sample values.

U.S. Dollar $100
Euro €70
British Pound £60
Yen ¥10000
Australian Dollar A$100

The payment threshold is probably the most important for you, but there are three other types of thresholds for earnings connected with actions in AdSense:

  • Address verification threshold
  • Payment method selection threshold
  • Cancellation threshold

You can review the detailed list of thresholds, but as a rough orientation the threshold for all of them is the equivalent amount of $10 or €10.

Why does my earning decrease after the month?

finalized earnings in AdSense

The numbers you see in your preformance reports are called estimated earnings. AdSense needs up to 10 days of the next month to finalize your earnings and display the result in your account. The reason for the difference between both numbers are invalid clicks and impressions. Google doesn’t disclose information about how they distinguish those clicks, but one of those invalid activities is clicking on ads on your own site. If you violate the AdSense policy too often, you might even get banned from the network and lose the whole outstanding payments.

What is a payment hold and how to issue one?

If you – for any reason – don’t want to get paid for the next payment period, you can ask AdSense to hold the money back as long as for a whole year.

  1. Sign in to your account.
  2. Click the gear icon and select Payments.
  3. In the “Payment settings” section, click edit self-hold.
  4. Click Apply.

AdSense self-hold

You can hold payments for the current month only, if you issued the hold before the 15th of that month.

What can I do if I didn’t receive my payment?

In case you didn’t receive your payment, but did complete your payment information, your overall income is above the payment threshold and due for more than a month, and no issue is thrown in your AdSense dashboard, you can request a reissue from AdSense.

Sample AdSense payment schedule

In the following payment schedule I included some basic examples and actions for the payment process.

Month Earning Payment Notes
January 2014 $40 getting started with AdSense; threshold not reached
February 2014 $90 threshold reached for the first time
March 2014 $200 $130 getting paid for January and February
April 2014 $250 $200 getting paid for March

Do I get a payment receipt or invoice from AdSense?

If you are a business – and in most countries you are when earning money with AdSense – you might want to get an invoice or payment receipt from AdSense for your tax office. You can find it in your payment history. From my own experience I recommend to check with your accountant of tax office and ask if they need more information, e.g. some stats from your performance report saying how many impressions or clicks you sold at which price.

How about taxes on AdSense income?

As long as your countries collects taxes, they probably won’t make an exception with your AdSense earnings. The amount of taxes you have to pay is of course too individual by each country and personal situation, so I am not able to cover it here in general.

Do you have any questions about AdSense payments you didn’t find the answer in this article for or you would like to add an experience connected with this topic? Please leave me a comment.

Update: AdSense Video about payments

In May 2016, AdSense published the following video about payments, which might help to clarify your additional questions.

    I had an AdSense payment substantially reduced this year because earnings were hugely inflated for a day (probably due to some idiot clicking on my ad repeatedly). However, it highlighted something to me.

    Google does not seem to recalculate your stats when it reduces your earnings. This means that your RPM numbers are permanently inflated because they reflect the orginal ‘end of stay’ stats and not the lower reconciled version at the end of the month.

    1. Domain Racer

      I had banned for invalid click for my adsense account. now i am taken care of my new adsense account to not open at time of working and also avoid invalid click. thank you so much to provide such little and deep information about adsense payment.

      i had already activated your email feed. this adsense payment information is really helpful for me thanks again.

      1. Juan Carlos

        Hi there, I got my account banned aswell and I asked them to revalidated to no sucess.

        What did you do to have a new account? And what do you mean by “…taken care of my new adsense account to not open at time of working and also avoid invalid click.” ?

        If I ever get my google account restablish I don’t want to make the same mistakes.

  2. zark Bedalov

    Thomas, I’m totally new in this. Reading your site is an eye opener. So I will be bugging you for a few days with more questions. Presently I’m in Malaysia. zarkbed@blogspot.com, a travel blog.
    Now I read here that I’m not supposed to click on the ads on my site, which I already have. The fact is the ads are truly related to me and my earlier searches and I may even buy a hotel room or airline ticket through it.
    So what is the true policy on the clicking ? Will I get banned?

    1. Thomas Maier Article Author

      Normally, you wouldn’t get banned right away, but just not receive any payment. Their is no exception from this policy even if you are a real client to the advertising business.

  3. Rob

    G’day Thomas,
    Just to let you know so you can update this post if you wish , the Australian threshold has changed (around 12 months ago) and is now $100 AUD down from A$150 as stated by you.

    1. Thomas Maier Article Author

      Thanks, Rob, of course I am going to update it. When I last checked, the help page still said “150” and without your comment I would have probably never stumbled upon this again.

      1. Peeter

        Hi Thomas my question is that on 30 march 2016 i reached 110$ (Reached threshold) but still i wont get form of Payment on adsense account.
        Please help and guide me how and when i get my 1st payment.

        1. Thomas Maier Article Author

          You will get paid next month. AdSense doesn’t pay right after you reached the threshold, but only on their normal payment cycle. So, just wait a few weeks.

  4. Pal

    How well does mobile websites perform these days with adsense? I have observed quite low cpc for websites that promote mobile related stuff. May be that’s because of the contents of site?

    1. Thomas Maier Article Author

      You mean “mobile” as the site’s topic? Probably depends on whether it is hardware or software. Software probably pays less. Also the performance of small ads that fit on mobile devices is in general lower.

    Hello,
    Sir I am Ravi From India Sir Help Me i am started recently earn money from adsence . i complete 106$ in Dec month. but i have wrong detail full fill in my adsence. again adsence team try to sending me my payment but i solve my all bank problem but 21st date is going out in this time not shoing my account adsence payment bill. last time try to me 6th feb i am solve my problem 10 feburary. my finalized earning is-150$ so please tell me how many days again adsence team send my finalized earning

  6. Nick B

    Hello Thomas,
    Earlier in the month of February, my ads were clicked many times over a short period of time. I looked it up and I heard you can get banned for life from adsense for this happening. Do you think I will be banned?

    1. Thomas Maier Article Author

      Hi Nick, if this happens just once, AdSense might only adjust the payment if they think those clicks where caused accidental or even by fraud. However, click rates can have natural spikes sometimes, so maybe it was just a very good campaign that was interesting to a lot of visitors.

  7. James

    Thomas,

    Your contact form doesn’t work. I would like to consult you regarding an Adsense problem I am having. How can I reach you? Thanks

    My blog is newtechnologyhub.blogspot.com

    my account is showing $245 for february month. But my finalized earnings are only $121 what is the reason?

    1. Thomas Maier Article Author

      This is a rather high cut. I hope you didn’t click on the ads yourself.

  9. sayeed muhammed

    Hi thomas,
    My adsense account as activated on Feb 27 2015, my payable earnings for 2 days is 11$, For the month of march i have crossed the payment threshold i.e 100$, i had verified the address, added my bank. its april 2nd. & adsense says Mar 1, 2015 – Mar 31, 2015
    No transactions & payable earning is still 11$. No alert or mail to verify the bank & no payment update till now.
    Can you please clear this?

    1. Thomas Maier Article Author

      Hi, if your account is only active since February and you crossed the threshold in March, first payment will not arrive before the second half of April.

      1. sayeed muhammed

        Thanks Thomas,

  13. Prince Gift

    Greetings 🙂
    Please help me with this query. Actually I had a youtube channel and I monetized it. But after I earned few dollars I got a mail that my account is banned as it contained some spam or etc etc etc……..So finally I lost my Youtube Channel. That broke my heart and I forgot about it. But later one day I just accessed(just to check) my adsense account linked with that same gmail id as that of banned channel and IT WAS ALIVE and well!!!Now can I use this same adsense account to monetize a website of mine? (By changing the gmail id associated with the adsense account)?Awaiting some solution from you experts.Thank You.

    1. Thomas Maier Article Author

      Normally, an AdSense account is not bound to a specific url, so yes, you can use it again. But it just needs one bad site to bann the whole account.

  14. Purushottam Kadam

    I reached Threshold of Adsense last month still waiting for the exact time to receive earnings
    how does time taken money will depostied to my bank account

    1. Thomas Maier Article Author

      I normally doesn’t take long to send the money, but this might vary from country to country. In the USA and Europe it is quite fast.

  15. Yashveer Arya

    AdSense send payment in bank Today but i didn’t get.? What should i do.?

    1. Thomas Maier Article Author

      Did you get the message that they sent the money today? Then it can take just a few days until you receive it. No reason to worry yet.

  16. viki sangre

    Hi Thomas,
    First of all thanks for the great Article.
    Many question arises in my mind regarding invalid clicks. Does Google treat clicks from proxies and VPN as invalid? But nowadays lots of online marketers use them for anonymity or to get target traffic from particular country.

    Is it true most of the time Google ban account when CRT is very high. I have seen tons of site violating Google policies and they are still violating.

    1. Thomas Maier Article Author

      Hi, I don’t think that Google AdSense bans large traffic sources per se, but there are probably multiple factors that in combination make a click invalid. If you see a lot of sites violating the policies then it is just a matter of time. I have seen some sites getting a warning quite fast, but with others it might in fact take longer.

  17. Ame

    I had recently received my payment for the last month but the amount I received is half the amount presented on my Performance Reports on the same month. What could be the problem?

    I wanted to report it to Google but I don’t know how.

    1. Thomas Maier Article Author

      Hi Ame, was the amount lower than the “Current balance” number on your AdSense dashboard?

  18. Mukesh Negi

    Google has sent payment on 24 may to my bank when i will get payment minimum and maximum date.

  19. Eric

    Hi Thomas,
    Please help me, my ads have changed from text and display ads to only text ads hence reducing earnings, anytime that i edit the ads to both display and text ads, it goes back to text ads when i close and log back in. Is there anyway you can help me please???
    Secondly, my adsense mates 100-400 euros daily, my last month balance is 6.7k euros, can i get banned ?

    1. Thomas Maier Article Author

      Hi Eric,
      this seem like an strange problem. Does it occur also with newly created ad units?
      I didn’t get why you think your account could be banned
      Thanks, Thomas

      1. Eric

        Yes Thomas, any ad code that i generate, even tho i set to “display and text ads” yet after code generation it goes back to only text ads,, which i think due to that has decreased the number of ads shown on my site and hence decrease in revenue optimisation(3/5 blue dots)

        1. Eric

          about the ban of my website, i thought i was earning much per day (100-400 euros) i read article elsewhere it said google can ban for high money

          1. Thomas Maier Article Author

            I remember that a while ago there leaked something from the AdSense review team that they waited to close accounts short before they reached the payment day. However, as far as I understood it was for accounts that already violated the terms. I have seen many accounts making more than $500 per day and there was no problem with them.

        2. Thomas Maier Article Author

          It is the first time I hear that so I am not sure what to suggest, sorry.

  20. Atila Irmes

    Hi there! You gave me all the info I needed, I was looking for payment options! Too bad they do not support PayPal but oh well. Thanks!

  21. Kizito

    Pls i have been looking for who to ask all my questions, but let me just ask a few……i just got adsense account yesterday.

    1. Please how many ads should i put on my entire site….

    2. I created upto 7 ad unit is it right?

    3. When would i start receiving payment.

    4. i am scared to open my site (so that i dont get banned) Or should i open my site , but dont click on the ad.

    5. Pls advice me….

    1. Thomas Maier Article Author

      Hi,
      1. you can place up to 3 content units (see AdSense policies)
      2. you can create as many as you want, but only up to 3 are allowed at the same time on your site
      3. the article you commented on should hopefully provide the answer
      4. you can open your site, just don’t click on the ads and if you do by accident then don’t panic

        May earnings and June payments are not received yet – YouTube Earnings

        No PIP 28/06/2015

        more than 300 person of my friends have the same problem

          1. Thomas Maier Article Author

            Thanks for the link. Some people posted the solution there. There was a change in Terms for Youtube and AdSense that can lead to a pause of one month. From 21 days, it changed to 60.
            Quote: “YouTube will pay you for any revenues due within approximately sixty (60) days after the end of any calendar month, so long as your earned balance is at least US $100 (or its equivalent in local currency) at the time payment is due.”

    1. Thomas Maier Article Author

      Sorry, John, but I have no idea. I hope that one of the resources that I linked to can help you to find out.

  22. samira

    my google adsense account got banned. I got one payment from it in february 2015 and then the account got banned in march for invalid activity.
    I want to know if there is any way to get the payment receipt of payment for february 2015 as i need it for tax purpose. I am not able to login into my disabled account so unable to get the receipt.
    Please reply.
    Thanks.

    1. Thomas Maier Article Author

      Though I understand how important receipts are, I don’t know how you can get one without the account. I know from many clients that it seems ok for the taxes to show the bank statements, but of course this always depends on the country you are in and sometimes even just the person in charge of checking your tax statements.

  23. Jiung Song

    So, I’m 14 and I have a website that made me $300 in 5 days getting 7k viewers daily. I thought this was rather normal but after reading these comments, it seems like its A LOT! Sometimes I get $50 a day and get around $10 on Sundays but DAM! I am getting a LOT of money compared to the guys on the comments.

    1. Thomas Maier Article Author

      Thanks for commenting. It is indeed something special. Which niche are you in?
      Thanks, Thomas

    1. Thomas Maier Article Author

      Interesting question! AdSense can not take money from your bank account. However, if you have a bank account that charges you for incoming transaction then there might be a reduction from your bank account though.

      1. Md karim

        I have a website it is a marketing channel website. I have lot of visitor a day..like 10k. And every day new new visitor coming. Can u tell me sir if I join with adsence and everyday if I get 1000click then how much I can earn for those clicks.
        And obviously I am going to choice my related ads.
        But I need to know how much I can earn for 1000click.

        1. Thomas Maier Article Author

          Hi, there are too many factors to make even an uneducated quess here. A lot depends on your traffic source and topics. There are not many sites that reach a higher CPC than $1. I also doubt that you get a click rate of 10%, although it isn’t impossible either.

  24. Agi

    This article was amazing but I still have a question regarding the payment. I’m very new to this so please bare with me. I got the letter with the address verification today and I put in the PIN and everything is perfect, bank account if verified as well. So as this is my first payment I don’t know when I’m going to receive the money on my account (the monthly threshold was reached). How long do I need to wait to receive it? The money on my account is from July so I should receive it without a problem. In the article it says bank transfers can take 4-10 days, so do I qualify into that? Will I have to just wait 4-10 days to receive it?

    1. Thomas Maier Article Author

      If you just entered the verification pin then you are already over the deadline for this month’s payment and have to wait until next month. Expect your first payment between September 22nd and 30th.

    1. Thomas Maier Article Author

      When did you submit the information and when did your income get over the payment threshold?

    1. Thomas Maier Article Author

      If this Pin comes from AdSense then it should be save. If you mean a banking pin or similar then you should double check if this is really necessary.

    1. Thomas Maier Article Author

      It depends on your local currency or the currency you set up in your account. Normally, the currency symbol is also given on the site.

  25. Timtak

    Ah….Alas….

    From reading the above it seems perhaps that one will not recieve payment for revenue accrued before one sets a payment method. I had about $2000 USD of revenue in the historical all time estimation part of my Youtube stats, and I assumed that I would be paid this amount (or thereabouts) when I set up a payment method but did not do so for many years, until about a year ago. By now my videos are getting few hits.

    Recently I was made a payment of $20 USD for earnngs accrued in the past year. The $2000 USD remains unpaid. I.e. historical earnings from when the payment method was not set up do not appear to be paid. I guess Google/Youtube keeps them!

    1. Thomas Maier Article Author

      Hi Timtak, interesting, but hopefully rare case. I wouldn’t read it like this and contact AdSense support about it. They got better in responding and $2000 is definitely worth asking.

  26. Arifudin

    Hey.I just make google adsense and connect to youtube.I upload more than 1 videos.Then after a few weeks my balance still $0.Can you help me? Please I need to know

    1. Thomas Maier Article Author

      I am not an expert with Youtube, but as far as I know you don’t just earn with having a video up there. You also need a lot of views on them.

  27. seo analyst in chennai

    heyy thomas, nice blog, i have a doubt im new to this adsense can u tell me how exactly this stuff works, i need to add this to my newly created blog page, how the amount is calculated using impressions or clicks

    1. Thomas Maier Article Author

      What are you interested to learn? It is probably too much for a comment anyway, but I would be happy to prepare a post about it in the future.

  28. raja babu

    i’ve an UAE adsense account. i need to know what is date of payment release in UAE
    Thanks

    1. Thomas Maier Article Author

      Sorry, I don’t know all the dates, but I think they are quite equal. One of the links in the articles to the Google support desks might help you out though.

  29. nikhil

    hello,sir my adsense account is activated today…my earnimg is $0.00
    and page views 200 in a day..but it didnt updates any earning today…so plz tell me how much time takes to show earnimg

    1. Thomas Maier Article Author

      Earnings should be visible with the page views, but with only 200 of them this can also mean that no one clicked yet. On many site click rates below 0.1% are very normal.

  30. nu

    Hi! I recently got my payment issued buy I wrote the payee name my mum’s name so she could pick it up, given that im not in the country at the moment, but they issued it to my name??
    I don’t know what to do, what happens if she can’t get it from western union? It’s my first payment ever.
    I had written my mum’s name on payment settings, in available payment settings, Wester union, payee name : my mum
    🙁
    Maybe I wrote down the details wrongly.

    1. Thomas Maier Article Author

      Hi, this is a very unique situation and unfortunately, I am not able to help in this case.

  31. kamlesh

    hello there, I just want to ask you that my youtube channel shows my earnings above $400 but showing only $ 10.59 in my adsense account and I had confirm address verification (pin) last month and selected mode of payment last week , now when I will get paid ?

    1. Thomas Maier Article Author

      Hi, I don’t know about your youtube earnings, but you get paid by AdSense when the threshold there is reached and $10.59 is much below that.

  32. Rogen

    Hi Thomas,
    First of all thanks for the great Article.
    Many question arises in my mind regarding invalid clicks. Does Google treat clicks from proxies and VPN as invalid? But nowadays lots of online marketers use them for anonymity or to get target traffic from particular country.

    1. Thomas Maier Article Author

      Hi Rogen, I am not aware about a general rule here, but as far as Google can find a genuine interest behind a click, they should count. Automated clicks however can lead to an exclusion from AdSense quite fast.

  33. Tarbo

    I have a question. Supposed I recieved my first $100 from youtube for the videos I post will I be paid next month for the videos or do I have to post other videos before i get paid again

    1. Thomas Maier Article Author

      With AdSense, you get paid when the threshold is reached. I am not aware of a condition that says you need to proceed with your activities in order to get paid.

  34. Bahaa Shaker

    Hi thank you for your post.

    Can i put my personnel payee information ( bank details )
    for my website ( online shopping website)
    without having to legalise this website as a company and open a bank account with the company name.

    Note: i have some partners, they won`t mind that money is transferred to my account

    Also can i do the same with paypal! can i put personal bank details to my website, so all transaction is made to this account

    1. Thomas Maier Article Author

      Hi, I believe that practically this is possible since your company might give you their approval. However, you should consider that if something is wrong with the account and it gets banned, your company and you might not get accepted again.

  35. netspyder

    hi, very instructive, i have a question.

    what if i hire people to click on my ads? what i mean is,

    i pay 100 people to visit my website everyday and click on my ads (say 5 ads per pages with 10 pages on the website.)
    that way i give the people a percentage of my earning.
    but there’s gonna be the same people click on the ads daily unless i increase my “crew” which i believe is totally possible as per my situation.

    so the scenario is

    people 1 to people 100 visits the same website daily and click on the ads present on the website.

    will adsense pay me or will it ban me?

      They will ban you as soon as they see through your scam, which might be quite quick.

    My blog is locked in 26 dec due to SCAM policy in blogger & i have not appeal but i will appeal soon. But what happened to my payment of adsense ? my adsense is normal at the moment.

    1. Thomas Maier Article Author

      The payment is blocked. You will not receive any money ever this is permanent.

    How much correct is the Google adsense report, freewebsitereport.org report or if you know about any correct income website then plz suggest me

    1. Thomas Maier Article Author

      The data is far off. Just checked for my own sites and it shows just the fraction of the reality. I don’t know a site that comes even close to real income data.

      What does the Finalized Earnings report on the AdSense dashboard say?

          1. Thomas Maier Article Author

            If there is no “Current Balance” information then you might want to contact AdSense directly.

          2. Novak Pejovic

            And yet no reports no nothing what should i do now,should i wait or,contact adsense and where can i do it?

          3. Novak Pejovic

    Hi Mr Thomas ,
    I m having an issue with my AdSense account, I was having my account in Dubai then I moved back to my country Tunisia and i was not able to change the address to my country because is not listed yet , i don t know what to do, do i have to create a new account and delete the previous one ?
    the Second problem is is that they already send to me a a payment on 21/11/15 with western union to my previous address (Dubai) and no one can receive it there … i heart that within 90 days it will be send back to google, so my question here is how can i receive that money ? or transfer it to another AdSence account ? .
    Thank you

      Hi Sofiene, these are very specific questions and I am afraid that I can’t answer them without some research. However, AdSense is getting better at documentation and replying via email, so maybe you can reach out to them directly.

    Hello, how can I check my freehold to see if I have met it? and do you need to make a freshold all the time or is it just once? Thank you!

    1. Thomas Maier Article Author

      If you mean “threshold” then you can find the link to the different thresholds within the article. You must meet it before every payment, not just once.

    I’m wondering if i can let my friend use my payoneer mastercard as a form of EFT in AdSense, there is no connection of mailing address or payee name of our a/c, so please tell me can we use same payoneer mastercard for two individual AdSense a/c ?

    1. Thomas Maier Article Author

      I think it should, in general, work. I am not sure to which extend they improved the individual checks in the background and would like to know if you tried and whether it worked or not.

    i have reached my threshold of $100 for this moth in adsense. The exact amount is $107. Will i get the full $107 amount or will google cut some of the money as their share?

    Hello,
    My question is I just receive my pin which took me 3rd try for pin request & verified my ad sense a/c on Jan 22, I had already reached 100$ in the month of December & got current balance of 250$ from January + December (110$) so if i ad a payment method now when do i get paid ? will all my earning will roll for next month ?

    1. Thomas Maier Article Author

      If you do this right now, it might still make this month and be paid out within a few days or else, it will come next month.

      1. Kelly Smith

        I have same problem, I just verified my bank this morning & all holdings are clears & i got 250$ from last 2 months so do i still got paid or i will be paid next month ?

    Hey ,
    If i moved out from one country to another do adsense still pay me . if the currency aren’t the same in those two countries .
    how can i get paid in the country im moving to ?

    1. Thomas Maier Article Author

      Yes, they should still pay you. You should be able to update your information in the AdSense account.

    hey thomas i need your help i saved me bank account information on 15th march and now is 20th march but i dont recieve any test amount frim adsense why ?

    1. Thomas Maier Article Author

      I am actually not creating new accounts anymore so I don’t know if they send test payments. But 5 days can be normal depending on the country you are in.

    Hi, what happens if I have accumulated $20 over 4 months worth of Adsense ads, and it keeps increasing … Do I still get paid this once I reach the min amount of $100? Or does Google not pay this out because the minimum amount has not been reached in the month or 2 consecutive months? Maybe, Is there a time frame of reaching this minimum amount?

    1. Thomas Maier Article Author

      Don’t worry, I am not aware of a time frame. In fact, I also have an account that accumulates $3 a month, so I get paid every other year 🙂

    Hi , Thomas Maier , The google adsense has sent the amount but it is yet not received in my bank account . Can you please help me out . Previous month transaction is made within 2 days . But this time it is more than 5 days .

    1. Thomas Maier Article Author

      Many countries have Easter holidays now and so it might take a bit longer these days.

    HI Thomas.

    Signed up to adsense having had a youtube account for some years now and found i had £362 in my account. Everything is verified and im just wondering if i will get that sum as a lump payment after the first month or do they hold some back?

    Many thanks
