Google Adsense PIN and Address Verification Process in Minutes

May 5, 2017wp-himu47 Comments

I got approved for Google Adsense and started earning few bucks. After earning $10 they alerted me with a red message in my Google Adsense dashboard that says my earnings are on hold and I have to verify my residential address via a personal unique PIN (pin send by Google to me in a letter) before I can withdraw my earnings.

Problem: Google Adsense mailed me all the 3 letters (having my Google Adsense PIN) but I received none. Even after waiting for 4 months after the release of 1st PIN I didn’t received any of the PIN.

After 6 months of sending 1st pin Google Adsense temporarily disabled displaying ads on my blog and asked me to wait for at least 4 weeks to receive the latest PIN they had send to me.

So, I was wondering – Did something just went wrong? I’m  going to lose my 1 month Google Adsense earnings? Or I am just going to end up on hold forever? Of course Not! *Read the post carefully* to resolve the issue in a few minutes.

More about the Issue: The red color alert message that you may see in your Google Adsense account dashboard after earning $10 is “Your payments are currently on hold. Action is required to release payment. More details.” Or ultimately after 6 months (from the day when first verification Google Adsense PIN was sent) “Your pages are displaying blank ad units because you haven’t yet verified your PIN and/or phone number. See the Payment History page for more details.”

These all messages appears because you haven’t verified your Google Adsense account or somehow you failed to verify your address with Adsense.

Another type of message that you may see is – “your payments are currently on hold because you have not verified your address. click here to verify your address once you have received your pin in the mail.”.

Google Adsense PIN Verification Process – Tutorial

Address Verification Using Google Adsense PIN

As soon as you’ll reach $10 amount, request Google to send you your the verification letters (PIN for address verification). After 4 weeks of release of first PIN you can request for a new pin. If you’re lucky you may receive Adsense letter (Same PIN is mailed all the three time so no need to worry whichever letter you receives first).

But if you’re one of the guy who didn’t actually received any mail or PIN then you can switch to second option that is better.

Google Adsense: Address Verification without using PIN

You may surprise to know – Those PIN’s for which you are waiting for many months aren’t necessary or mandatory for address verification process. You can also choose following methods if you don’t want to get into the pain of waiting PIN’s.

My Story: I got approved for Adsense. 6th month passed and I found that I didn’t received the second PIN and decided to request last remaining 3rd pin but unfortunately before requesting it I got message alert in my Google Adsense account dashboard “Your pages are displaying blank ad units because you haven’t yet verified your PIN and/or phone number. See the Payment History page for more details.”

I didn’t understand the message at that time because my site was perfectly showing Adsense ads therefore I requested the last 3rd PIN but next day all the pain comes, I found my site was not displaying any ads.

I Googled and luckily found some details at Google forum and saved by the alternative and quick method.

To verify your address with google adsense you have to send them your address id proof, it may be anything that is recognizable and provided to you by your Govt. I provided them my Driving License and within 4-5 hours everything was fixed and ads started to appear with no red alert/message in my Google Adsense account. Go to following links and submit details.

Verify Address: https://google.com/adsense/support/bin/request.py?contact_type=id_verification

Verify Phone Number (After uploading documents): https://support.google.com/adsense/contact/phone_verification

You’ll also get an acknowledgement message.

After providing a clear snap of my driving license to them, they removed all the red alerts from my Adsense account and everything is now fine. I can now withdraw my money and do not have to worry about PIN verification.

They really did the job very well and it took just 4-5 hours. That’s awesome, I received the following mail from Google Adsense:



Thank you for sending your proof of identity.

I’m happy to let you know that this fulfills the address verification requirement for AdSense. You no longer need to enter a PIN.


The Google AdSense Team


I hope you’ll also get all your above issues sorted out. I hope you’ll be soon free from Google Adsense PIN and address verification process. Wish you Success!

    It’s good but if those three PIN code letters can’t come so what about the Payment cheque? 🙁

      June 6, 2013

      Hello Akash Deep, PIN’s are send via normal postal service while the check is send via reputed courier service of respective country i.e. Blue Dart in India. Blue Dart is a nice trusted courier service.

    Hey i have the same problem. I reached to threshold amount just 2 months ago. they sent me pin 2 times but till not received any pin.As you said that we can remove alert by providing documents but i am living in small village so i provided my relative’s address in adsense. So how can i give my id with their address? Is there any solution for this situation.

      September 18, 2013

      Hello Raj,

      You can ask your relatives to send you their telephone bill, electricity bill or any other document that can be validated by Google Adsense. Once they send you, just provide it to Google Adsense and Enjoy!

    Thank you so much! I have the same problem you had. I am using Google Adsense for YouTube channels and earned about $11,000 in three months. My 3 PIN requests are now over. Your information is really precious to me.:) Can i use my Election I.D. Card for verification? If i can; what i should, take a good photo or by digital scanning? Please reply!

      September 29, 2013

      Hello Nitesh Kumar,

      First of all, congratulation for your earnings! And yes you can use you Election ID card. You can take a high quality photo or digitally scan it (as you prefer) but mind that information/details should be easily recognizable and readable.

    I wanna ask one thing! There is a little misspelling in my Adsense payee name which does not effect pronounciation. I can’t edit my payee name because that option is not available in India. Will it effect my payment? I hope you can solve my problem. Thank you!

      October 8, 2013

      Google Adsense will be sending you check with your payee name. So, if there is mistake in payee name then how you are going to cash that? It’s a big issue!

        I am only 16 and i used my father name for payment. Actually, there is a problem in second name. The bank account uses this title “Chaudhary” & I entered this in Adsense form “Choudhary”. So, i am in tention what will happen?

          February 21, 2014

          6 month from the date when you were accepted by Google Adsense.

    Hello. Your article is useful and I’m having a bit of concern with my Adsense account too. I live in Cambodia which the postal service is not that convenient. I’ve requested 2 pins already and I also see this in Verify address

    “If you don’t receive your PIN within 4 weeks of this date, please complete this form and attach a digital image of a government issued ID card, bank statement, or telephone bill displaying your payee name and mailing address as it appears in your account. Please note that we’re only able to accept information printed in one of our supported languages.

    Once we receive your email, we’ll respond within 2-3 days regarding your PIN verification status.”

    SO…When should I upload that government issued ID card? Anyway, my government issued ID card is not in English so what should I upload then? Do they accept passport? The Passport doesn’t include my address.

      January 31, 2014

      I understand that it’s hard to successfully get you Adsense PIN, therefor I have written this tutorial. Yes you have to upload a government ID or official document. Checkout their supported languages, might be you ar e lucky and have your language listed. For more information you have read their help pages.

    hi, i have question.. my google earning is around 200$ and they just send me the first pin but after 3 weeks … i don’t get it… so, either apply for 2nd pin can i just upload my documents…

    please answer me… it gonna be a big relief if your answer … BTW very informative post… 🙂

      February 4, 2014

      It’s your choice. You have reached threshold amount already and I can understand you are excited for your first Google Adsense check. So, why don’t you just upload the documents.

      BTW according to Google you should first apply for all the three PINs and in case you don’t receive any of them, then you are eligible to go through this verification step. But you can surely go with either option!

    My adsense is already activated on my youtube and blogger, but I didn’t receive any verification email that my adsense was succesful, what would be the problem with this? Thanks

      February 12, 2014

      Most probably the poor postal service! Follow the steps recommended in this article and everything will be fine!

    Hi Himanshu

    I did the same thing and received the same message from adsense within few minutes. But red bar is still showing on my account.

      June 20, 2014

      Which red bar and what is the message? Wait for 48 hours and see what happens. Try this again otherwise contact Google Adsense someway.

      BTW are you sure you followed all the steps? Didn’t you received any of the 3 PIN letters?

    Hello sir, is it possible to send Documents even if it has been 10 days since I received the notice that they will send my pin? or should I wait for 4 weeks before I verified my adsense and send my Id’s or documents and get my earnings?

      June 22, 2014

      Hello Jeremiah, Apply for Adsense PIN verification letters and wait for them. If you receives none then try this method.

      Simply applying for this option without waiting for any PIN will be an abuse of this facility. Google Adsense may disable this option for all other new bloggers if found any abuse. So play safe and take care of new Adsense bloggers!

    Hello Himanshu really nice and useful information. I was facing the same problem, saw your post and with your suggestion now solved with the red bar appearing on my adsense account asking to verify the PIN. I have several websites one of which is nextbiggies.com but now my problem is, i am unable to see any ads running in my website even after solving the notification issue. Can you tell me, does it take some time for the ads to show up on the website?

      July 7, 2014

      Hello Abhishek, I visited your website and Google Adsense ads are appearing properly, Hope issue resolved!

      Best of Luck!

    Hi HIMANSHU NEGI , i need a quick reply hope you will help me out!!
    I varified my address on 17th of the current month, Means after 15th. Will google release my earnings? i have came across their tos which say that everything should be completed before the 15th of the month to be paid. Plese shoot a reply as soon as you see this. thnx

      July 23, 2014

      Hello Ghulam,

      To be honest I never fell in a situation like this before. If Google Adsense have to release your earnings then they will release it around 25-28 of the month. So what this means is that you have to wait 2-3 to know your answer.

      As you said they had stated that everything should be completed before 15th then I think it’s a little difficult for them to send you any earnings. But as you are a Adsense Earner, you’ll earn a lot in your life so a little patience is expected.
