If you haven’t received your AdSense payment, don’t worry as you aren’t alone. Google AdSense has not sent any payouts to its publishers and has been delayed due to a technical glitch in their system. The team that is responsible for sending out payments are aware of the issue and are trying their best to send out payments asap.
Google AdSense Statement
On 26th November, Google made the following statement on its YouTube Partner Program support page regarding the AdSense payouts temporarily being delayed:
Since 22 November, you may be experiencing a delay with your AdSense payments for the month of October. This affects some creators who are part of the YouTube Partner Program. We’re aware of this issue and working to resolve it. You can check back here for updates on the progress of the fix.
Reason for the Delay
Even with such a statement, the reason for the delay has not been mentioned leaving all AdSense publishers angry and depressed after not getting paid on time for Black Friday, Thanksgiving and Cyber Monday.
A publisher named “Kenneth” on Twitter reached out to YouTube Support via email and managed to get the following reply regarding the payout delay:
