Important Note : One important point I would like to mention over here. Do make sure that the Address in your Bank Account and your Adsense Account is the same. Sometimes, the bank may put the payment on hold due to address mismatch. This has been my personal experience when I got my $540 on hold. After a lot of arguments with the Bank Manager I was able to receive my payment. As soon as I got the payment, first thing I did was I changed my Address in Google Adsense account exactly as in my Bank Account records. From next month onwards, there were no such issues.

This is the complete process to Add a Bank Account in Google Adsense. Hope this article will help you to do the needful.

  • i am not able to create my adsense account while adding the detail to adsense coout creation the msg display Please register for AdSense directly from blogger.com.so how can fix that problem

    • Hi Dinesh Gupta,
      As you are applying AdSense on a website which is running on BlogSpot platform. You are getting this message while you try to apply for AdSense.

      You can apply for Google AdSense from the Blogger Dashboard itself.

      Use that option and you will be able to apply for AdSense successfully.

      But I recommend you to use a custom domain before you apply for AdSense. You can read this guide and register a great domain with NameCheap.

  • Nice article, I want to link my bank account to adsense. I don’t know about swift code. But I have IBAN account no.
    Do I need Dollar currency account or local currency is also ok?

    • Hi Zean,
      You don’t have to link your Bank account with the Google AdSense account.

      You just have to enter your bank account details in the Payment section of the Google AdSense dashboard.

      If you are facing any other issues let me know.

  • my adsense address and bank address is different so what should I do. Next month I will get my firs payment from adsense. till the time i didn’t add bank details in payment method please suggest me. and one more thing that i have joint account so can i fill details of that joint account

    • Hi Amit Sharma,
      If you have a different address in your bank account and AdSense account then you have to first fix that.

      All you have to do is just change the address in the Google AdSense account. But make sure that it is
      same as you can find it on the bank passbook.

      As you told me that you have got a joint account with you. I have never used a joint account to receive the
      AdSense payment.

      You may or you may not face issues while getting your payment in the joint account. So what I recommend you is
      use a personal bank account to receive the payment.

      But while entering your bank account details in the AdSense account make sure that you enter correct IFSC and SWIFT code.

      I wish you all the best for your future AdSense payments. 🙂
