I have been working with Google Adsense for years and recently my earnings grew exponentially. For this reason, I decided to open a company in the United States for formalizing my activities and for tax purposes.
Adsense only allows you to receive payments in a bank account located in the country your Adsense is set up, which in my case, was Brazil.
Since I opened a business in the United States, I consequently opened a US bank account in Chase bank, and for this reason, I was unable to set it on my Adsense payment settings because of the country mismatch and also because my account was set up as an individual, not as business.
After looking up this issue, I found a few sites and also Adsense official support page claiming I would need to open a new account.
Luckily, that is not the truth! Apparently, there was a change and it is now allowed. Below I will be detailing how you can request Adsense support to change your Adsense country and I will be making a different post explaining how you can also switch your Adsense account from individual to business.
Changing Your Adsense Account Country
To change your Adsense account country, login to Google Adsense on a computer and click on the question mark icon on the top right-hand corner. Keep in mind that you will need a valid address and you may be asked to verify it by PIN again.
Scroll down the help widget and click on “Need more help?”
Note: It appears that this option is not available to all publishers and you must earn a certain amount to unlock it. If it is not available for you, I’m sorry! I’m not exactly sure of the requirements.
Select the “Account” option and click on “Change of country”. Now fill the form and wait for Adsense support team to get back to you, which usually takes 2-3 business days.
In case you need to switch both the account type and country, as I did, select “Change Account type” and fill your new country business address when it asks for an address. This way you can tackle the 2 changes in just one form.
