To be frank I never faced any problems with the Blue Dart Courier, and my Google Adsense cheques arrived before 10th of every month, sometimes after just 3 to 5 days when the Adsense payment are released by Google. But this time I have still not got the Google Adsense Cheque. Today when I checked my AdSense payment (Finalized earnings and payments) I found the Blue Dart tracking number missing.
Has Google Adsense really stopped using the Blue Dart Courier for Indian Publishers?
It does seem like they did, I am still not sure but when compared with the previous transactions this particular transaction seems a bit weird with no Blue Dart Tracking Codes.
The Google Adsense forums have a lot of posts where people are complaining about the Blue Dart services in India and how the cheques are delivered late, and in some cases are sent back to the origin. There are many who have asked Google to stop using Blue Dart services.
I am not sure what is happening, but I am still waiting for my cheque which I assume will be delayed this month, but hopefully will receive it. I don’t think Google Adsense will abruptly stop the Blue Dart Services without informing the Indian Publishers.
Sincerely I never had any problem with Blue Dart, there are some who may have faced the problem occasionally or just about every time. I think Google Adsense should give two options one for normal Indian Postal Delivery and other via Blue Dart. So those who are not happy with the Blue Dart Services can switch to regular Indian Postal system.
Will update when I receive the Adsense cheque and if it was through Blue Dart or Normal delivery.
I received the check the same day when I wrote this post. It seems there was some delay. But it did come through courier so this means Google is still sending Adsense cheques for Indian Publishers via courier. The payment option in Adsense for some reason failed to update the tracking code.
