Whoa, only after 3 months. I’ve finally received my Google Adsense first payment. I bet this duration of time is most common for people who are not from the western countries and putting up Adsense on their website. At least for people in Malaysia.

I’m wondering, can it be any longer?

Adsense Cheque

Anyways, to share the information. Clearing the cheque takes around 6-8 weeks with Maybank and the bank will take as much as RM25 for their processing fee on top of another USD10 deduction for the Less Agents Charges . I did not check and compare with other banks.

KB Chew from Sierra Technology had mentioned to me that Citibank would only charge RM2.00 to clear foreign Cheques.
