Experience, they say, is the best teacher. Lately, I monetized my blog, so there’s need for me to set up my Adsense Payment Method hoping to receive payment when it’s due. Unfortunately, I found out that Savings of my bank no longer receive payment from Google. I had to change my bank.
There’re other reasons why there’ll be need for publishers to change their payment method.
Major reasons why you might want to change your Primary Payment method are:
If the account details you earlier filled isn’t correct i.e if you made mistake either in your name, account number, or the SWIFT Code.
If your bank no longer receive Adsense Payment
You might also want to change your or remove bank account in your Adsense Payment Method if your bank has a poor custom support.
If you found yourself in any of the stated reasons above, then you need to change your payment method, and remove the previous one.
Follow this guide if you want to Change or Remove Adsense Payment Method
Sign in to your Adsense Account
Click on SETTINGS in the left navigation menu
Scroll down to click on PAYMENTS
You’ll see the payment method you already added to your account, under it is: Manage Payment Method
Click on Manage Payment Method
You’ll see by the left handside, the account you’ve set as your primary payment method, and by the right handside is: Add Payment Method.
Click on Add Payment Method. In the “Add a payment method” section, enter your bank account information.
Fill the necessary details: and click on SAVE.
You now have two accounts: Primary Payment Method is usually by the left while the new one is by the right. There is an option under the newly added account SELECT AS, click on it to set it as your PRIMARY PAYMENT, doing this will automatically bring it to the left.
Find your previous payment method, and click Remove to permanently Delete it from your account.
You’ll receive your payment in your newly added account, but note that you won’t be able to select a form of payment if your earnings haven’t reached the payment method threshold.
