The payment to AdSense publishers is released at the end of each month, providing the threshold amount is reached.
But if you aren’t keen on getting monthly cheques and want to grab it only after accruing bulk amount, say 1000$, then you can put self hold on it and temporarily pause your cheque release.
Putting a self hold stops Google from releasing your payment, though you’ll keep on accruing income and seeing the unpaid amount. Its just like pausing the cheque releases keeping everything else as normal.
Here are the steps to self hold adsense payment,
- Login to your Google AdSense account and click ‘Account Settings’.
- In the settings page, move down to see ‘Payment Settings’. Here you’ll see a self hold option, click ‘edit self-hold’.
- In Self hold page, check ‘Hold Payments’ and click apply to set your payment on hold.
To release the payment, uncheck the box and your cheque would be issued in the next payment cycle.
All cheques are released, with specified settings, after 15th of each month. Any changes in account settings like address change, self hold etc must be made before this date otherwise it would take effect from the next payment cycle.
