HOW TO CHANGE YOUR GOOGLE ADSENSE BANK ACCOUNT PAYMENT DETAILS – ZIGIHOW.COM.NG
Few days ago, I wrote an article on how to correctly add your bank account details to your AdSense payment form for wire transfer. Then I thought about what if in a case one mistakenly enters a wrong bank account details or maybe the individual doesn’t want to receive payments from AdSense with that particular bank account again due to reasons best known to him or her, and needed to change it for a new one or another bank account details, how can he or she go about it?. If you’re one of those that wants to change your bank account details on your AdSense, then you’re absolutely in the right place.
Like I said in the previous article about correctly adding your bank account details to your AdSense payment form, you should ensure to input your correct and active bank account details in correspondence to what it bears on your bank account.
For Example: If the name on your bank account is Ukandu Anselem S. While entering your bank account details in your adsense payment form ensure you enter exactly the name on your bank account including the abbreviation “S“. This is very important. Also ensure to input the right Swift code of your bank, most adSense publishers (bloggers) makes errors on that. Visit your bank ask them for their Swift code, if you’re a Nigerian, this is the list of all banks in Nigeria and their Swift codes.
If in any case you entered and saved a wrong account details in your adsense payment form, or maybe you want to change your bank account details for reasons best known to you, then you’re currently in the right place. In this very article I’m going to guide you on how to correctly change your bank account details in your adSense payment form.
Adsense doesn’t allow publishers to edit their bank account details, thereby correcting errors, rather they only allow you to delete the previous bank account details while you enter a new bank account details and form of payment. Once you’ve entered your bank account details, set them as your primary payment method and save them, Google will assume that’s the bank account details you want them to wire your earnings to.
But if in any case the money was eventually wired by adSense and it didn’t get into your bank account, maybe due to some errors, your money will be returned back to your adSense earnings.
How Can I Change My Google AdSense Bank Account Details?.
Step 1. Log into your AdSense account, click on the icon on the left top bar.
Step 2. A new page will slide out. Click on “Payments”
Step 3. A new page will be revealed to you. Click on “Manage Payment Method”
Step 4.You’re going to see your existing payment form, besides it, click on “Add Payment Method“.
Step 5. A new payment form will be revealed to you.
Step 6. Fill in the form by entering your bank account details correctly. You can learn how to do that here.
Step 7. Tick “Set this for of payment as primary” (Very important) and click “Save”
That’s it, you’re done.
This is how I filled in mine.
Always ensure you enter correct and valid bank account details in your AdSense payment form, you would like your payments to be held back. If in any case you want to change your bank account details in your AdSense, ensure to do that before 20th of every month, as Google releases payment starting from 20th or 21st.
