Google AdSense PIN: Why You May Not Receive Yours

Do you want to receive money from Google through AdSense Program? If yes, I am just using this opportunity to let you know that you will need to verify your account before your money can be sent to you.

Using Google AdSense is not just a matter of inserting AdSense codes on your blog/website. You must ensure that your Google AdSense account is verified; if not, however much you might earn from clicks on your site, you will never be able to receive your payment.

After your Google AdSense registration has been approved, you can begin putting AdSense codes on your blog or website. Attract huge traffic to your blog and make sure you blend the AdSense codes with the theme of your blog. With time, you will begin to notice some commissions being credited to your account provided the visitors to your blog are clicking on the Google ads on your blog.

This is just one of the many ways of making money on the internet. By the time your commissions reach $10, Google will automatically notify you to verify your account using a PIN number that they mailed to the address you used while registering for the Google AdSense. Therefore, it’s important to make sure that the address you provide during registration is one through which mails can easily reach you.

If you’re a publisher trying to make money through Google AdSense, there are many reasons why you might have not received your Google AdSense PIN (Personal Identification Number) yet. Consider some of the reasons below;

Your Google AdSense Account is not on PIN hold

You will be required to verify your PIN only after your account balance reaches the threshold amount of $10.00. If you do not see a hold displayed on the Overview page, under the Reports tab, then it means that your account is not on PIN hold yet.

Google AdSense might have not sent a PIN  to you

Usually, you have to wait for a week after your account balance reaches the $10.00 threshold amount for a PIN to be generated and mailed to you.

You haven’t waited 3-4 weeks after your last PIN was generated.

PINs often take 3-4 weeks to reach you by mail. You can find the date on which the most recent PIN was generated by logging into your account and viewing the To Do menu.

Your Payment Address is invalid

Take a moment to review your payment address, and make updates to your address if possible. If you still haven’t received your PIN after reviewing the common issues associated with your payment address, you may still request a maximum of 2 additional PINs.

How to Request For a New PIN

If you have not received your PIN yet or lost it, then you’re welcome to request up to two additional PINs.  Note: You will need to always wait 3-4 weeks after your last PIN was mailed before you can request a new one.

To request a new PIN:

  • Login to your Google AdSense Account
  • Click the Payments tab
  • Continue to the Verification Check
  • Under To Do menu, click Verify
  • Then Click Resend to request a new PIN

Google will then mail a new PIN to the address you provided in your account. If your address has changed, please update it in your account before requesting a new PIN


  • In most cases the mail doesn’t reach your destination which provides you the option to verify your payment address manually without a PIN having requested for it thrice. Click here to learn how to verify your PIN manually.
