How To Verify Google AdSense Account Without PIN ?
When Google Sends Pin Code?
When you set up google AdSense account and get approval for publishing ads on your site or blog by Google AdSense, it starts showing ads on your blog. Once your earning has crossed $10, Google sends Personal Identification Number (PIN) to your Payee Profile address to verify the address of account holder. PINs typically arrive within 2-4 weeks but may take longer depending on your location. Google mail your PIN on a white postcard measuring 4.5 x 6 inch (11.4 x 15.2 cm). PIN is of four digits. You will then need to enter this PIN into your account (the pin Adsense sends). See below screenshot:
If somehow PIN does not reach your address, Google allows you to request for two more times. In total, you get three chances of Address verification. In all the cases Google Address verification PIN remains same. Be careful, if you enter the wrong PIN three times, your account will be suspended.
What if PIN Code does not reach after Three Attempts?
Google understand that sometimes the publishers might not receive the PIN after three attempts. It might be because of bad postal service or your address is in remote areas. Google has provided a workaround for this J
Keep in mind that you have four months to submit your PIN after your first PIN is generated. If you fail to submit the PIN, Google will stop showing ads on your blog.
