It’ll consist of me going “BLUH.” at it.
Now, now, let me tell you something first. I have no intention on putting Google or its AdSense service into the bad light it -in my humble opinion- deserves sometimes. No. This is just me rambling on about how I can not get paid.
As most Bloggers, I have Google AdSense up on my blog. Just one tiny unit in the sidebar on the left, nothing major. It gets clicked every now and then, which earns me a bit of pocket money. Perfectly cool, I can really use that.
I am currently above the AdSense payment threshold (seventy euros, a hundred dollars), but have not yet selected a form of payment.
So, what do I do? Select a method to get paid. My only option is EFT (Electronic Fund Transfer). perfectly fine by my, I’m sure my bank supports it.
Long story short, apparently it doesn’t. HOW LOVELY.
I mailed AdSense support asking why the test deposit failed (the second time I tried, too). The reply I got was one that stated my bank apparently does not support EFT, and I’m better off asking to get my payment by check.
Okay, cool, I can still get paid.
I go to the payment method selection page, only to be reminded of the fact that an EFT deposit is my only option. BLUH.
So that’s pretty shitty. There’s over seventy euros on my account, but I have no way of getting paid. I’m busily asking around the AdSense help forums, but so far the only possibility presented to me was making a new bank account at another bank that does support EFT. And that doesn’t seem like a really good option in my eyes.
So I’ll be patiently waiting. Waiting ’till I can wrap my arms around those seventy euros, sitting there, taunting me.
