How to Change Google AdSense Account's Payee Name Easily

Payee name is the name allotted to person who is going to receive payments from Google fro using their service and making money online. So when ever you sign up for an AdSense account they provide you a field to provide the exact payee name for the person who has a valid account in any band with that name, so its kind of important step which everyone should fill with little care.

But sometimes due to curiosity people might fill out some random names or maybe they can miss some middle or last name, so you got me there can be any problem. So now the thing is does Google provide any easy way to change your payee name right from your account settings, well in few countries they do provide but in some countries mentioned in below image they do not provide this feature by default so is there any easy way to change payee for those account, well there is a way that might work out perfect.


So now the easiest way to overcome this problem is too contact the AdSense team directly and ask them to change your payee name so that you can easily receive checks, well the first option I will recommend is by using the new consultation service by Google AdSense, if your account is eligible for that service that would be much easier option to do so.

If you are not eligible for that service you can still contact them by sending a direct email to their support that's adsense-support@google.com so we not going to randomly typing few paragraphs but we have to do this thing in a manner full way so that it looks but professional.

So now just follow below steps, on how to compose a nice email to their support team so that you can get fast reply's from them easily.

  1. Open Gmail.com & Sign In to your AdSense Account.
  2. Now compose a new email to adsense-support@google.com
  3. In subject type "Payee Name Change"
  4. Now for the message copy & paste below format in your message field and change things.

    Dear Sir/Madam,
