I had my first Google Adsense payment yesterday. Actually they tried to pay me through Western Union since about 6 months ago but I did not noticed it. I didn’t open the Adsense email for ages as I was very busy with my work stuff. There was an option to get the payment by wire transfer to bank account, which I decided to change to that.
