Currency and exchange rate

Your Western Union Quick Cash payment will be made in US dollars. However, at most Western Union agents, you may be able to pick up your payment in your local currency. We recommend that you call your local Western Union Agent to confirm which currencies are available. The exchange rate will vary based on the rate used by the Western Union agent on the day you pick up your payment.

Deadline for WU payment

You’ll need to pick up your payment within 60 days after it’s issued. If you do not pick it up within 60 days, your earnings will be credited back to your account and your payments will be put on hold.

If your Quick Cash payment is held, you’ll need to visit your Payments page, click the ‘Please contact AdSense Support’ link, and let us know why you weren’t able to receive the payment. We’ll then release the hold, allowing you to receive the next payment.
