The AdSense payment threshold explained

Many new publishers often want to know what the AdSense payment threshold is and when they get paid? In this article, we’ll take a look at that and more! Let’s get started!

Before you’re able to get paid by AdSense, you need to go through a series of verification processes. This includes doing the following:

It’s good to keep in mind that processes of requirements for each part might slightly differ depending on the country you are in. The same goes for payment methods and payment thresholds.

Let’s say you’ve verified your tax, address, and identity information, as well as choose a payment method that suits you. What do you do next? Now, all you need is to reach the threshold and get paid. Keep in mind that, according to the payment method chosen,  it’s good to know how long money will take to reach your account.

For instance, checks might take 1-2 weeks to reach you, while EFT payments might take a few days up to 7 days.

More information on payment timelines can be found here.

What is the AdSense payment threshold for my account?

Each country has its own payment threshold. For the United States, you need to accrue $100 in AdSense earnings to meet the threshold and get paid. Here is more information regarding other countries.

When will you receive payment?

When you get paid depends on when you reach your payment threshold and the type of payment method you’ve chosen. Once you reach the threshold, Google takes 21 days to process and check your earnings, after which they will make your payment. Payments typically go out on the 21st-26th of each month. After that, the actual date of receiving the money in your bank account will vary and depend on the payment method chosen, as previously explained.
