My Google AdSense checks used to be delivered fairly regularly every month; until they changed the channel. These days, it arrives on the DHL-Blue Dart route.
Blue Dart has an office on the same road as mine, and yet they say that they could not find my (centrally located) office; as a result, they decided to send back the check as Undelivered – Address Unknown / Not found .
But then, obviously, this is a problem that many in India seem to face; at least 2 other colleagues from MVP Nirmal (whose residence is right behind the Blue Dart office) and Geetesh will vouch for.
Blue Dart employees simply do not make efforts to find the address and instead prefer to return checks! Dude, I was waiting for this check !!
I sent my office staff to share their opinions with us. They apologized and promised to visit my office so that future checks would not be returned!
Request a reissue of an AdSense check from Google
In any case, if you want Google to reissue or resend your AdSense check, you can:
1) Write to adsense-support on google dot com
2) Visit Google to request a re-review. You must be logged in to your Google AdSense account.
As soon as you send a request for re-issuance, within about 15 days your earnings will be credited back to your account and you will see the line “Check stopped – earnings returned” on the payment history page. If this line appears before the 15th day of the month, your earnings will be included in the billing cycle of this month. If it appears after the 15th, your earnings will be included in the next month’s billing cycle.
3) Request more help on the AdSense forums.
Google also states:
“If we are unable to complete your payment for any reason, for example, if your check is returned as undeliverable or your EFT payment is declined, a line may appear on the Payment History page indicating that your earnings have been returned to your account. If this line appears before the 15th day of any month, your earnings will be included in the billing cycle of this month. If it appears after the 15th day, it will be included in the next month’s billing cycle. ”
Hope this helps someone; and I hope that the guys from Blue Dart India will escalate!
PS . The following month, I was able to quickly reprint my check. Thanks Google!
However, since Blue Dart employees still cannot assure me of home delivery, I have to send employees to my office to pick them up personally every month!
