    What can I do?

    I have Google Ads on my Friend and I's Site Gaming Hybrid.
    Today was a great day where we earned around $5! Now I understand that Google Adsense only pays via check and we will be using the Money from the Check to pay for Hosting etc. The only problem is that neither of us have a Credit Card and we need the Money in our Paypal account!

    Has anyone ever tried asking Google if they could just send their money Via Paypal?

    Anyway I live in Australia so there are no tax deductions and I was wondering if I could change my profile address to someone elses so that they would recieve the check and they could pay me the $100 via Paypal.
    Do you know what I mean? So if you live in Australia and have a Paypal account please help me.

    Thanks

    GOD BLESS

    Hey GamingHybrid, unfortunately Google probably won't pay you with anything other than a check. Your best bet is cashing the check into a bank account, and transferring the money through bank account to paypal if possible.

    I'm guessing you and your friend are too young to own a CC? Ask a parent to help you out or simply trade them the check for a cc payment.

    I assume he means that google will not have to withhold any income taxes at source.

    Seeing as you aren't an employee of Google under adsense this wouldn't happen no matter where you are located.

    He still has to pay tax on the money if he makes enough, but if he is excited about $5 and runs a gaming site then I am assuming that he is but a young lad.

    I hate to tell you this but you are violating AdSense terms. It's a violation of the AdSense TOS for those under 18 to sign up for the program.
