How to Receive Payment From Google AdSense in Nigeria


So, How Do You Receive Google Adsense Payment In Nigeria

First, you must have crossed the payment threshold to consider receiving your earnings from Google AdSense. This is $100.

As soon as you are 100 Dollars gone, you are eligible to get your first earning. This also applies subsequently to other months. You have to have at least $100 in your Google AdSense account to be paid.

If your earnings don’t accrue to 100 Dollars after the month you wish to be paid, you don’t have to worry; it will be kept and accrued until you get to the payment threshold.

There are two major ways to receive Google AdSense payments here in Nigeria.

The first method is the Bank wire transfer method which is by far the most straightforward.

How do you receive Google AdSense payment through wire transfer?

This is done directly and automatically to your bank account in Naira here in Nigeria. No longer do you need a domiciliary account to receive your Google Adsense payment. 

What you need to do is to set up your form of payment in the payment settings. 

To access your Google AdSense account, log in and navigate to the settings page. From there, select the payment option and proceed to the payments settings page.

Then click to add a new form of payment. Select the wire transfer to the bank account and fill as appropriate

Beneficiary Id: This is optional. You don’t need to fill that. You can leave that space empty.

Name on bank account: Please enter your complete name as it is mentioned on your bank account.

Bank name: This is the name of your bank

SWIFT BIC: you have to contact your bank’s customer care for this. If you are using GTBank, your SWIFT BIC is GTBINGLA

Account number: You type in your account number here

Re-type Account number: simply retype your account number.

All the other fields, like Intermediary bank, Intermediary bank name, Intermediary SWIFT-BIC, FFC, or FBO, leave blank.

You don’t need to fill them out as you are Nigerian planning to receive Google payments here in Nigeria.

When you are done, you tick the box beside “Set as primary payment method.”

The second option is receiving through a check. Because of our system in Nigeria, this doesn’t seem to me as a wise, easy option. However, I will still share with you the procedure of receiving Google AdSense payment in Nigeria through check.

  • How to receive your AdSense payments by check

To receive your payments through check, you must do so through DHL. You may need to pay DHL some fees at the end of the day.

First, you will need to set up your check payment gateway and make it your primary method. Here is how to do it; very easy.

Go to payment settings as usual, click “Add a payment method” and “Add new Check details” afterward.

You then enter the address you want the check mailed, your name, city, postal code, state, and other necessary details on the form.

Then, set that option as the primary payment method. Payments through check are sometimes delayed because of the logistics involved. This is Nigeria, remember?

How money is deposited into your bank account by Google AdSense

How money is deposited into your bank account by Google AdSense

If your earnings have accrued before you got your Google AdSense PIN, as soon as you get it and verify, Google AdSense will send your accrued earnings, greater than $100 of course, to your bank.

In less than 24 hours of verifying your PIN, you should get an email from Google Payment with the title – “Google AdSense – Check Your Recent Payment”

Technically, the money is sent into your bank account. You will have to wait to receive it. If you don’t receive it within 5 working days, you have to contact your bank to complain.

Subsequently, or if you didn’t have $100 before verification, you will have to wait for monthly deposits. On the 21st of every month, you have this process automatically happen.

Very easy.

  • Downsides of receiving Google AdSense Payment into your savings Naira account

With a domiciliary account, you receive your Google AdSense Payment in dollars. This will give you the chance to change from Dollars to Naira at a very reasonable price.

You may have to contact an aboki or any other money exchanger to sell the Dollars. If you have a constant aboki person, good. If not, that’s another quest.

Any which way, the deposit into your bank account even though seamless comes at a much-reduced price. For example, as of now, rates are 1 dollar to 300-310 Naira. If you do a dollar exchange, you should have 1 dollar go for 350-361 Naira.

Have you ever been paid your Google AdSense earnings? How did you receive them? By bank wire transfer or by check?
