Google asks me to type in their PIN

Discussion in 'Payments' started by juice99, Mar 1, 2005.

    Hi, recently i got a message from Google that they have sent me a PIN number - to my home addres (it was like 3-4 weeks after creating my account in Google)

    They sent me this a little more than 1 week ago, but im not in US so its probably normal that i didnt get it yet, but my question is - will i have to wait for a next "sending checks period" time or will they send me my check immediatly after i enter their pin? (theoretically they should already )

    it seemed like an English shortcut, but it might be not i guess.. it says PIN on this page (page is in Polish), also we refer in our language to PIN as to for example 4 digit number which is needed for bank machines.

    Im not sure how is it called in English, but im sure they asked me to type in the few-digits code, so they can validate my address. I didnt get it yet, but they also say that they sent it to my addres.

    Im not in UPS club, can i be if im outside US? Well anyways even if i can, i dont earn so much.

    i dont worry about it itself, but my payment was not approved, probably becouse of that - so i wonder, if i type it in, will they send me a check immediatly or wait to next "sending checks time", which means probably late march

    I don't think they will change their finance schedule just because you updated your pin...

    You will need to wait untill the next payment date

    I wonder why they waited for a month before sending me this PIN. i hope they will not ban me 1 day before end of the March.

    And PIN is an English word (shortcut or something) which means Personal Identification Number.

    PIN is for international publisher. This is to verify if the your address is correct. You must enter the PIN before you can receive checks.

    I wonder what will happen if i generate another PIN to send me, and then the old one will come ;) will it work? hehe... im asking becouse it already almost 2 week from the date they sent it to me, and still nothing in my mailbox.

    What do you think - how long it can take to travel to Europe ?

    I would send an email to google asking them to clarify the whole PIN process. Im sure they will help you settle the issue.

    im afraid i already sent them like 4 emails, i got 2 responses from automat and thats all (i suppose the 2 others were not about common topic so thats why no auto-response)

    And since waiting time for response is from 8 days (it was for me at least) to.. well... for those other too its almost 3 weeks now - and i dont know how much longer, so dont think it will help

    thats why im asking you for any experience-sharing about this topic :)

    I got a PIN request yesterday and I'm in the US - a business (commercial space) that I've been in for 15 years.. This must be a new policy.

    they send out a PIN to all new accounts... started doing this about a month ago I believe... nothing to do with international accounts... everyone gets one that sets up an account now... it is for address verification and security measures...

    Good explanation. Google just wants to verify the addrese, which seems kinda stupid considering they already ask for SSN.
