Google Messes Up AdSense Exchange For Indian Rupee

Sep 26, 2008 • 7:19 am | comments (7) by twitter Google+ | Filed Under Google AdSense

A DigitalPoint Forums thread has a three page thread on the topic of Google messing up yet again with the exchange rate given to publishers. This time Google equated one US dollar to one Indian Rupee. The true current exchange rate is $1 US to 46.555 INR. Yes, a huge difference.

The main questions Indian AdSense publishers are asking themselves are:

(1) Is this just a reporting glitch? (2) If not, how long will it take for them to get the difference they are owed?

We have seen this happen in the past. First with Australian publishers and then with Canadian publishers, every time - it benefited Google.

I know the US dollar is at risk, but $1 US to 1 INR?

India / US Exchange Rate Mistake Google AdSense

Honestly, don't panic, I am sure Google will make things right.

Update: Google is aware of it and will let us know what they will do to fix the issue.

And the same happened for South African AdSense Publishers. An email notifying of the problem was sent but the exchange rate still shows 1:1 in the Google Payment History. Oh Well Sh*t happens
