After eight months running Google Adsense in my blogs, I finally accumulated enough money to make my first cash out last month. Since one month ago, we are able to cash out our Adsense earning through Western Union. I opted for the Western Union cash out method over the conventional check since it is faster and free of charges.
I went to a nearby CIMB branch which has Western Union services to withdraw my money. I requested for the necessary form from the guard. I filled up the form as fast as I could. It is an unbelievable feeling to finally receive some cash from my blogging adventure.
I took a number and was served almost immediately. I presented the form together with my IC. My transaction was processed without a problem. You can read LiewCF’s attempt to withdraw his Adsense earnings from Western Union. There are two differences between our individual experiences. Firstly, the counter staff didn’t ask me what the purpose of the money is for. Secondly, I don’t remember her photocopying my IC. However, I was withdrawing RM400 while LiewCF could be withdrawing RM4,000 or more. So, that could be the reason for the differences.
Anyway, after doing some calculation, the exchange rate was at 3.3146. Where did you withdraw your Adsense earnings and what was the exchange rate?
