Well, I have been writing for a number of articles now about “when do you get paid”. All of the articles I have written on the topic are directly related to something that I do. I have my hands into a lot of different ways to make money, mostly online.
I have pointed out previously, I believe in streams of income, and the sheer number of articles about different ways I get paid show that I am earning the way that I preach, by having multiple small streams of income! Even if the individual ways of making money are small, they all add up, and produce a sustainable income!
Think of it like this, it is not difficult to figure out a way to earn $300 extra per month, but if you needed to make $3,000 extra each month, well, it might be hard to come up with a single way to do it. But, if you can come up with 10 easy ways to make an extra $300, well, suddenly you have that $3,000 you were looking for! It works well for me.
What is Google AdSense? Well, it is a program where Google pays publishers (like me in this case for publishing this website) with advertisements provided by Google. I am sure that if you look closely at this page you will notice advertisements on the site, ads that are provided by Google. Every time that a site reader clicks on an ad, the publisher of the site gets paid. The amount of pay varies, depending on the ad, the popularity of the topic for which the ad represents and other factors. Generally, it is not a large amount of money for each click, although it varies widely.
I don’t know, maybe some people are making a lot of money from AdSense earnings these days, but I feel that AdSense earnings are down compared to years ago. I know that I make only a fraction of what I used to earn from AdSense. But, like I have said many times… small streams of income. It all adds up.
So, when do you get paid for Google advertising? First thing is that you must make at least $100 before you get paid at all. For example, if I earned $20 last month from AdSense, I won’t get paid next month. That $20 will go into my “account” and build up. If I earn $50 this month, then I will have $70 in my account, but since I don’t have $100 in there, I won’t get paid next month either. Let’s say that next month I earn $50 again, so I have $120 in earnings that have yet to be paid. Once I have more than $100 on the account, Google will send me my entire balance. Of course, if you earn $100 or more each month, you will get paid every month then.
Google usually pays the money around the 23rd or 24th of the month following the month when you earned enough for payment to be issued. So, if at the end of October you had $100+ in your account, you can expect to receive payment on or around November 23rd.
For me, I choose to have Google send the money to me via Western Union. They will also direct deposit the funds to your bank account, though.
