Some Adsense publishers who were expecting their February 2009 Adsense Earnings check from Google may have observed this message “Check stopped - earnings credited back” message in their Payments History tab[Even though there were no visible holds on the account].I was searching for an official word from Google about this and finally I could get one.
This is due to a bug in Adsense payment hold system.
|“If you were one of the publishers who ended up with your AdSense account on hold for payments due to an AdSense bug, you were reassured that payments would be processed to be included at the end of February. Originally, the payments were to be included in the payments at the end of February. However, because Google had to remove these holds manually, it seems as though this wasn’t done until after the February 15th cut off time. So what does this mean for affected publishers? You have to wait another month to receive your payment due to Google’s bug, according to AdSensePro Jen.”|
So affected publishers can expect their earnings to be included in next payment cycle[If you get this message “Check stopped - earnings credited back” before March 15th in your account or if you get it after March 15, you can expect your earnings to be included in next month’s payment cycle].
