Google Makes AdSense Cash More Accessible In Seven CountriesBy: Doug Caverly - June 8, 2009
Leave it to Google to not forget about the little guys. By introducing the Western Union Quick Cash payment option in seven countries, the search giant is trying to make it easier for people in more rural settings to receive AdSense payments.
Barbados, Bolivia, the Dominican Republic, Guatemala, Nepal, Uruguay, and Vietnam are the nations that have been affected by the expansion. As a post on the Inside AdSense blog points out, the Western Union option might be especially useful in these areas "since you won’t have to wait for checks to arrive in the mail or clear at the bank."
Existing bloggers in these countries are liable to become more fond of Google thanks to this new arrangement, then. And a key point is that individuals who don’t yet blog may also find the idea appealing.
Parts of these countries might, in the best sense of the word, be classified as "developing," after all, and it would be smart of any company to become popular in them now and then just hang on for the ride.
Several comments following the Inside AdSense post made it clear that Vietnamese bloggers are already grateful. There aren’t any fees associated with the Western Union option, so it’s sure to get some use in other nations, too.
