Google Adsense: Cash with Western Union

It’s nice to hear that Google Adsense officially introduced Western Union as a new payment method in Indonesia on early February 2009. For me, this payment option is quick, easy, and free compared to conventional checks delivery, as we don’t have to wait checks to arrive, passing couple weeks verified from local bank to US Citibank & eliminating fee to clear it. On this chance, I’d like to share you my first experience about cashing Google Adsense money with Western Union. This is my several times earning money from Google, but this time, it’s only need less than 20 minutes to process! With checks? It could be more than 2 months…

First, let you sure that you ready to receive a payment issued from Google. You might check it out from Earnings and Payments Summary on your account.

Once you have it, track the details link to see the MTCN code (MTCN = Money Transfer Control Number).

For more specific explanation, see the Statement of Earnings. I suggest that it would be good if you print these both information out to papers before going to Western Union agent.

Next, prepare to go to agent & don’t forget to carry your own valid citizens ID (KTP = Kartu Tanda Penduduk). For this test, I using agent in one of PERUM Pegadaian branch office on Jakarta. At the agent, ask for To receive money form & fill those 4 information which is receiver first name, sender first name, MTCN at the right of the form & the amount of money to receive at the bottom. Also, sign the form.

If nothing goes wrong, then final receipt will be issued in a minute together with money in local currency as a result from amount of USD money times current local Western Union exchange rate. No extra surcharges spend neither revenue stamps cost required for it.

Although Western Union exchange rate is lower than bank (approximately Rp 200 per USD), but it’s still more reliable to cash it in 20 minutes than wasting cost needed to wait & clear the checks at the bank in 2 months. Do you prefer Western Union?
