After Google Adsense included international wire transfer as payment options for Nigerians, many bloggers have been faced with the task of opening a domiciliary account in US Dollars ($). A popular question many Nigerian bloggers now ask is, ‘Can I receive payment from adsense in my normal bank account? Well this post is for those who can’t get the necessary referees, IDs and requirements to open a domiciliary (dorm) account. I will show you how you can withdraw your adsense earnings into your UBA, Zenith savings account.
I have cashed out adsense payment via a UBA savings acct while a fellow blogger also received his Google adsense earnings into his Zenith savings account. These are enough testimonies to confirm that Adsense now pays into most Nigerian banks’ savings account without the need to open a domiciliary account.
However, it is important to note that you can’t receive adsense funds from international wire transfer in USD into a GT Bank savings account. GTB will allow you to use a dorm account domicile in US Dollars only.

The AdSense marketing program accounts for a large chunk of the revenues of technology giant Google Inc. Google AdSense is a program that permits bloggers and website owners to make money by showing Google advertisements on their web pages.
Simply put, Google keeps the largest share of the revenue earned and the blogger/website owner receives a small percentage. There are two ways to make earnings from AdSense:
Impressions – This refers to the number of page views of pages or posts with ads, which are visited.
Clicks – This is based on the number of visitors who click on the adverts.
To get started making money from AdSense, the blogger/website owner will have to sign up for an AdSense account and proceed further by add relevant code to the blog or website. The choice of how ads appear, where they show up, and even what kind of ads will be determined by the website owner/blogger.
At a threshold of a minimum of 100 USD, Google will either send check or make a direct deposit/transfer into a registered bank account.
