Western Union for Indonesian AdSense Publishers

Update 26 February 2009: I've tried this method. WU agent I used was BRI (Bank Rakyat Indonesia). It's easier than expected: I just need to fill out the form given (the most important being MTCN) and 2 copies of my KTP (identity card) and one materai worth IDR 6000. Less than 10 minutes it has been transferred into my BRI account. Also amount of more than $2000 could be taken at once.==

Finally, the good news has come for Indonesian Adsense publisher: you now can receive your adsense revenue through Western Union quick cash money transfer. Our long wait had paid off! That's really a great departure from the often boring check payment. And for that we have to be grateful for Adsense who makes it happen for Indonesian Adsense publishers.

Here's how to change your adsense payment method from Check into Western Union:

1. After login to your Adsense account at google.com/adsense -> Click "My Account"
2. In "Payment Details" click "Edit" (see pic 1)
3. At "Choose Form of Payment" check "Setup Western Union Quick Cash" (see pic 2) -> Click "Continue"
4. At this point, you'd find the following warning and blank field to fill out from AdSense:
