How to Verify Payment Identity in Google Adsense Account

How to Verify Payment Identity in Google Adsense Account

Identity verification ensures that there is a real person behind a process and proves that they are who they claim to be.

Depending on your location, Google Adsense might need to verify your identity using information like your name, address, or date of birth. You might also need to provide to Google Adsense with a copy of your ID or proof of address. Google Adsense do this to confirm it's you and protect you from fraud. Note that if you are required to do this, you won't be asked to verify your address via PIN until after you've successfully verified your identity. For more information about identity verification, see the Google payments Help Center.

For example, you might need to verify your identity to receive payment from Google Adsense. When this happens, your Google Adsense Account will have a temporary payment hold placed on it until Google Adsense have confirmed your identity.

Note: Google Adsense first ask you to verify your identity to submit the required documents in your adsense account. If you haven't provided the documents or Google Adsense are still unable to verify your identity from the documents you have provided, Google Adsense will stop showing ads on your websites/blogs/apps.


How to verify your identity?

To submitting your documents here are some tips on successfully submitting your documents:


Know before verify your identity

The email notification and in-account notification that you receive will detail the steps that you must complete to verify your identity for each Google Ads account.


If you are an organisation:

Your 'Account type' in your Google Ads payments profile must be 'Organisation' before submitting your information. You can check your 'Account type' in your Google Ads payments profile via the 'Settings' page for 'Billing and Payments'. If your 'Account type' is 'Individual', but you need to verify as an organisation, contact Goggle Adsense before starting the verification process.
  1. If you are not a payments admin, you’ll have the option to send an email notification to the payments admin(s) on the account to ask them to finish verification.
  2. You need to submit registration documents that include your organisation’s legal name, location, registration number and a document to verify yourself.
  3. The name and location on the payments profile must match exactly your name and location on any documents that you submit. If the name doesn’t match, change the payments profile name to your organisation name.

If you are an individual:

The 'Account type' in your Google Ads payments profile must be 'Individual' before submitting your information. If your 'Account type' incorrectly shows as 'organisation', contact Goggle Adsense before starting the verification process.

The name and location on the payments profile must match exactly your name and location on any documents that you submit. If the name doesn’t match, make sure to edit your payments profile.
