The Google AdSense payment cycle is monthly. You accrue estimated earnings over the course of a month, and then at the beginning of the following month your earnings are finalised and posted to your balance on your ‘Transactions’ page.
If your balance exceeds the payment threshold and you have no payment holds, you’ll be issued a payment between the 21st and the 26th of the month. Note that the exact time that you receive your payment will depend on your time zone, whether the 21st falls on a weekend or holiday and your chosen form of payment.
You can temporarily hold your Google ads AdSense payments for up to one year. Configuring a self-hold will stop Google from sending payments until the date that you specify, but you will continue to accrue earnings on your balance.
Provided that your account balance has reached the payment threshold and you have no other holds on your account, Google will issue a single lump sum payment of your accrued earnings a few days after the date that you specified for the hold to expire.
Ready to get paid again?
To start receiving payments again, either remove the self hold on your account, or, if applicable, change your payment threshold to £100 and set an appropriate payment date.
To place a hold on your payments:
- Sign in to your AdSense account.
- In the left navigation panel, click Payments.
- Click Manage settings.
- Next to ‘Payment schedule’, click Compose.
- Enter the date on which you’d like the payment hold to expire.
- As a different option, you can increase the payment threshold to a higher amount.
- Click Save.
Please note that you won’t be able to place a hold on your Adsense Google ads payments for more than one year. Additionally, you will not be able to postpone the current month’s payment if you placed a hold in your payment schedule after the 20th of that month. You must place a hold by the 20th if you wish to postpone your upcoming payment until a later date.
