A few days ago, I was just cleaning up my room when somebody brought me a letter. I was wondering who would be sending me a mail and when I got it, it was from Adbrite. I said, wow! I did not expect this coming so I opened the mail and found a check. ^_^
The amount was $50.17. I know it’s just pocket money to other bloggers out there but seeing this check is something new for me. But this also brings me to a minor problem. How do I encash this? I called my parents and they told me I have two choices.
- Get a dollar account and deposit this check or
- Convert this to peso.
I’m not really familiar with these money stuff so I’m hoping one of you can give a suggestion on what I can do with this.
My second topic for this post would be my adsense problem. I have been thinking that I need to withdraw my money there because as long as the money sits there, it is still not mine and I could not say that I have made money online via adsense (that would be my proof!).
Well, here is my problem. I would like to get my money via Western Union because I see it to be a better alternative than to use snail mail (due to horror stories of people getting their adsense checks stolen). However, as I was reading the policies and guidelines, it says that my name in the Payee account should be equal to my name in my government Ids. Well, that is the problem because they are not equal. I did not put my second name in my adsense account (also my payee name) so would that make me ineligible for withdrawal via Western Union?
.. just to end, I got my PR back. Oh it is just a 2 but it’s more than the 0 i had for the last few months.
