How to Change Payee Name in Adsense without Closing your Account ?
Changing a payee name in Google Adsense account is a daunting task if you are located in countries “China, Brazil, India, Indonesia, Vietnam, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Algeria, Bahrain, Egypt, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Tunisia, United Arab Emirates, Yemen, Palestinian Territory, or Thailand”.
The only one way to do it is, closing your current account and create a new one. The process can take about a week or two. That means during the process, your earnings will suddenly drop to ZERO, which i can’t afford. So contacted to Google Adsense support and regarding the process of updating payee name without closing my account and they replied in my favor.
The only way to change the payee name without closing your account and opening a new one would be to send via email a scanned copy of government-issued IDs for yourself and your father. As long as the valid IDs contain information clearly identifying yourself, your father, and your current address, I can make the change.
Otherwise, you will have to change accounts. To expedite the process, your son should apply for an account while yours is still open. If it is disapproved as a duplicate, we can manually open the account after your account is closed.
Please let me know which method will work better for you.
I then scanned and emailed my my “Driving License” which is issued by Government of India.
Thank you for the quick reply. I’ve gone ahead and updated your payee name to “NEW PAYEE.” Please note that our system automatically placed a Tax Information hold on your account, and that you will have to re-select your payment method before you can be paid.
Finally the name was updated to my name from my father’s name.
Thanks to Google Adsense Support.
