People change countries all the time. You may be a student when you started your YouTube channel and AdSense account, and now you have moved to the USA or other countries. Now, you would like to get paid in the other country rather than your home country. This is why you are looking for a solution to change your AdSense country.
In this guide, I will share everything you need to know to change your AdSense payment country so that you save time and get the thing done in no time.
Does AdSense allow changing the country of the AdSense account?
Yes, you can change the country of your AdSense account.
However, when you do that, you lose access to all the old payment history, so make sure you download the old data for book-keeping purposes.
Also, according to the official Google AdSense help guide:
Changing your country will delete all payments history in your old payments profile. If you’d like to transfer any remaining earnings, we can only assist you if your new country is in the same Google contracting entity.
Many of you might be wondering: Isn’t it better to open a second AdSense account?
Well, here are a few important things to know:
- You can’t have more than one AdSense account under the same name.
- However, if you have opened a new entity, you can open an AdSense account under a new payment profile/entity and operate it.
- You can close your existing AdSense account and apply for a new one using a new email. However, I don’t recommend this step.
You can read the official guide on “Close your AdSense account” to learn more about it.
