A WebmasterWorld thread discusses how hundreds, if not thousands, of AdSense publishers based in Brazil did not receive their Google AdSense payout, when they expected it.
Their checks were a month delayed, according to the thread, because of Brazilian Customs Regulations.
The post reads;
Thousands of brazilian webmasters which are expecting the december check (delivered 12/20) noticed the delay this month, and yesterday they received an email from Adsense, informing that the checks are interrupted due to Brazilian customs regulations with couriered payments.
I do not have a copy of the email from AdSense but it is very interesting to see this, especially with all the Brazil versus Google stories over the past year or so. For more on Brazil and Google woes, start here and keep clicking.
