In 2004, PayPal starts to accept Malaysian registrations. No withdrawal options for Malaysians that time.

3 years later, 2007, PayPal allows Malaysians to withdraw PayPal money to their credit card, debit card, or prepaid cards.

2 years later, in the middle of October 2009, PayPal started to support Malaysia Ringgit currency and updated the user policy (paypal login required).

Now Google AdSense Splits Western Union Payments!

Google AdSense blog announced a good news for AdSense publishers whose payment exceeds the maximum western union payment amount. Now, Google AdSense will divide up the amounts and send multiple Western Union payments.

OK, this might not interest every AdSense publishers, but it is a good news for AdSense publishers who were not able to receive AdSense payment via Western Union due to the payment exceeds the maximum Western Union payment amount in our countries.

For Malaysia, the maximum Western Union payment amount is USD$2800.

My AdSense payment exceeded the maximum amount and I received AdSense cheque by DHL Express Mail, which cost ME USD$24 for the delivery.

I had updated my payment method back to “check” wait for several weeks for my handsome AdSense check. Then, the check would take a month to be cleared by the local bank…

I miss Western Union payment method so much!

With the new Western Union payment update, I have switched back to Western Union payment method because, if your payment exceeds the maximum payment amount, Google AdSense will split the payment and send multiple Western Union payments to you.

If you’re sent multiple Western Union payments, you’ll see multiple ‘Payment issued’ lines on your Payment history page, each with the corresponding MTCN associated with it.

Now, AdSense publishers like me can switch back to the FAST and FREE Western Union payment method!

Muacks! I love Google AdSense! :D

(Too bad, my Google AdSense’s December 2008 payment has been issued as “check”…)
