How to Verifying Your Google Adsense After $10.

This is a very important step. Without verifying your AdSense account you won’t be able to receive your earning no matter how much you earn. Verifying AdSense means to prove to Google that you’re a real person living in the address you have provided. To verify your AdSense account, you should first earn $10. After you’ve earned at least $10 in your AdSense account, Google will send a mail (card), with a verification code inside it, to your address. This is what the card looks like.

Inside it is a verification code which you should enter in your AdSense account. Once Google sends that card, you’ll receive a notification in your AdSense account just like the screenshot below.

It may take up to 30-45 days to receive the post card to your address. If you don’t receive the mail within 2 months the request for another card. However, you can only request for 3 PIN.

If you have provided your address correctly then you’ll have no problem in receiving the card. However, sometimes you’ll have trouble verifying your AdSense. This is because Google doesn’t recognize most of the parts of Nepal.
I had the same problem and I had to wait for months to finally know that Google couldn’t recognize my address.
Here’s a trick I used. Go to Google Maps and locate your location. Provide exactly the same address on the Google Map to your AdSense account.

Example: Instead of writing “Mukti Chowk, Jhapa” you should write “Mukti Chowk, East-West Highway, Anarmani, 57204, Jhapa, Nepal”
Finally, Google will send a card containing a code to the nearest post-office & the postman will deliver it to your home.

7. Choose your Payment Method

This is the question I get asked the most! There are three ways you can receive your payment of Youtube in Nepal.
  • Through Cheque (not recommended)
  • Through Western Union (recommended)
  • Through Bank Transfer (recommended)

Please, remember that if you’ve created an Youtube & Adsense account from other countries (United States, Uk, etc) you’ll have extra modes of receiving payment. For example: you can receive your AdSense (YouTube) payment through Payoneer if you have a US AdSense account.
Your YouTube earnings will be added to your AdSense account before the 15th of the next month. Once your earning is added to your AdSense account, Google will send the payment only after the 21st of that month.
For Example – if you earned $100 in March, then that $100 will be added to your AdSense account before the 15th of April. Generally between 12-15th of April (next month). Once your earning is added to your AdSense account, Google will send the payment only after 21st of April (next month).
An advice from me – Do not ever use cheque as your method of payment. Because

1. It will take anywhere from 30-45 days before you receive your cheque.

2. 15-30 more days to withdraw the amount from the Cheque.

3. You’ll need to have an account on that bank to cash the cheque.

4. Most banks won’t even cash your Google cheque.

5. Even if they do, they’ll charge you anywhere from Rs 500 to Rs 2000.
So eventually you’ll receive 90% of your earning after 60-70 days. Unless you don’t have access to Western Union or you don’t have a bank account, I strongly recommend not to use Cheque payment method.
Note: Adsense will only pay you once you’ve reached $100.
Here is the Cheque payment I received from Google.

Congratulations !!!
You’re now a verified YouTuber. But there’s still more to learn. You can maximize your earnings with these few tips. Check it out here.

Few things to consider:

  1. Always try to upload your original content. YouTube takes copyright very seriously! 3 copyright claims and your YouTube account is banned.
  2. Uploading videos is not enough. You need to get traffic to it. Share it and ask your friends to share it.
  3. There’s no fixed value about how much you’ll earn from certain number of views. 1000 views in one video might earn you $0.5 while 1000 views on some other video might earn you $5. But in average, from my experience, you’ll earn $1 for 1000 views.
Take a look at these images below:

As you can see in the above analytic data, this video has just 10 views but managed to earn $1.29 ! But in the picture below, my video earned just $0.03 from more than 20,000 views !

so why’s that? Because not every views are monetized ! I went to my YouTube analytic and checked the ad Rates tab. I found out that only 136 of the total video views were monetized. Which means from 20,000 views only 136 views showed ads. That is just 0.68% of monetized views.
On average 11%-20% of views are monetized.
