This one is a significant and promising launch in last few days including “aStore” for associate program.

AdSense Western Union Launched in Panama

in Adsense/Fun/Google/Monetize by

A few weeks ago, Google Adsense announced that Western Union expanded to additional countries.

Today, they announced that Western Union is now offered as a payment method for publishers located in Panama.

To sign up for payments by Western Union, sign in to your account and follow these instructions. Please also keep in mind that they’re only able to make Western Union payments to individual payee names, but not to businesses.

If you are disappointed again (not living in supported country list), according to Google AdSense blog, they are working hard to find more convenient ways to send you your earning. You are asked to leave feedback on the AdSense blog.

Not located in Panama? We’ve been reading your comments on our other recent payment-related posts, and understand that many of you are looking forward to new payment options in additional countries. Please know that we aren’t able to provide details about when new options may become available, as setting them up can take time due to factors like compliance with local laws and tax regulations. However, we’re working hard to find more convenient ways to send you your earnings, and we’ll definitely announce any new options here. In the meantime, please feel free to keep leaving your feedback, and we appreciate your patience!

My Clickbank Cheque was Cleared

in clickbank/Indonesia/Internet by

A couple weeks ago, I got my first Clickbank cheque, My First ClickBank Cheque. That was a really great day =)

But, I got a new “problem”. The problem is how can I cash my Clickbank cheque. Is it possible to cash my Clickbank cheque in my local bank?

OK, my journey just began…

First, I tried to cash my cheque in Bank Niaga. Unfortunately, I have to have a current account in Bank Niaga at least for 6 months in order to cash my Clickbank cheque. I think this is a must requirement to cash any cheque in Bank Niaga, such as Adsense, Commission Junction, etc CMIIW. IMHO, I need to open one account in Bank Niaga just in case only 😉

Second, I tried to cash my Clickbank cheque in Citibank. About one year ago, I cashed my Adsense cheque in Citibank. Hopefully, I can cash my Clickbank cheque in Citibank also. Unfortunately, I can not 🙁 I have to have Citibank account.

Perhaps, I can try another local bank, but I use my US Bank to cash my cheque. You can learn how to open US bank from Indonesia from IndoUSBank (Bahasa Indonesia).

Here is how to cash my Clickbank cheque in my US Bank:

  • Endorse (sign) the back of the check
  • Download and complete a deposit slip (provide by my US Bank)
  • Mail the check and deposit slip to my US Bank
  • make copies of the check and slip for my records.

That’s it. Have a great day!
