Adsense Western Union Withdrawal from CIMB Bank Malaysia: I Got My Adsense Payment!
I finally received my Adsense payment through Western Union. Normally I would go through Maybank and let them charge me high rates for depositing a foreign check – not to mention I had to wait more than 1 month for the check to clear. Maybank would charge me $10USD to process the check and another 10% as agent fees (whoever the agent was, they sure made a lot of money from me).
This time, I changed my payment options to Western Union Quick Cash. To change your payment options go to My Account > Account Settings > Edit Payment Details. To check whether they have issued your payment, go to My Account > Payment History and browse to the month that you are supposed to receive your payment. Click on the Payment Details and you’ll get info on your payment such as
1. Payment Type
2. Payment Date
3. Money Transfer Control Number (MTCN)
4. Payment Amount
Your payment is ready for collection one day after the payment date. For those who live in Malaysia, you have to remember that US time is roughly 12 hours back – so to be safe, give it 2 days from the payment date before withdrawing your money.
When going to the bank or post office or any Western Union agent, note down:
1. Amount of your payment
3. Bring your IC
4. Sender’s info/address, such as below
1600 Amphitheatre Parkway
Mountain View, CA 94043
I withdrew my money at CIMB bank in Subang Jaya. Remember to search for the Western Union form located together with other application forms such as bank-in slip, loan, etc… The Western Union form has a bright yellow header.
Simply fill in your details, contact number, address and Google’s info as well as the amount of payment. Please note in the Western Union form at the name section, you will need to fill in your First Name (Nama Depan) and Last Name (Nama Belakang). According to the clerk, the first name should be your surname – like mine, Woo (Google put it that way). Get a number from the machine – there would be an option for Western Union.

CIMB bank gave me cold hard cash and I don’t even have to pay any fees. The conversion rate that I got was 3.321.
I got my money and I’m damn happy!!!
Cheers and have a great day ahead of you!
