    Hello,

    So, after 3 requests my PIN didn't arrive. The shitty postal service in my country must be the fault.

    Anyway...

    I still haven't received a notification to verify my account by confirming my identity and I don't even know if it will ever show up.

    Aaaanyway...

    If it ever shows up, I really don't know what type of document should I send to them.
    All the government documents here (passport, ID card, driving license) have only the city where I live and do not have any other information like zip code, street name, etc. The address I've put on Adsense has city name, street name, zip code.

    Is that a problem? Shouldn't both addresses be the same?

    Also, I talked with my bank and the bank statement does not include my address. I only got a signed paper from them stating "mr xx with address here and there has a bank account with number bla bla". Is that a valid document for adsense?

    Phone or electricity bills are out of question because I live in a rented house and the bills are not on my name.

    Can I upload more than one type of document? Let's say I upload my passport, my driving license and that paper from my bank alltogether. Is it better than uploading just one type of document?

    Is it a problem that it only contains my city and not my full address?

    From my experience with Google AdSense verification with I.D (Am from a tier-3 country thou.) I used my international passport it was rejected thrice, and when i was lucky to be able to get in touch with the support i was told the I.D must include my full address, as shown on my account. so he requested i get an utility bill or my bank statement carrying same name and Address then attached it with the I.D and send it via mail to him.

    That's how i finally got the account approved.

    Thank you. I think I got my answer.
    So, I have to send the paper from the bank that states my address and my bank account number, the bank statement, and my passport to them.

    Another question I have is: Do I have more than one opportunity to verify my account without PIN or is it a one time thing and after that you're fucked.

    I wasn't sent any PIN back then, but from previous experience once you failed the PIN verification, then you make use of I.D verification, but to be on the safer side attach your I.D and proof of Address in a single file. incase you don't have more than one opportunity to verify the ID.

    Also a Gold Expert from the AdSense forum help me out back then. @boldrack is a witness

    I found a novel way to avoid the pin authentication - completely by accident.

    This works in the UK, unsure about anywhere else.

    1. Setup what looks like a legit business (small website, fake address, voip phone number etc etc).
    2. Get as many NAP citations for this business as you can (yell.com, yelp, Thomson Directory etc etc).
    3. Wait for a month or two.

    After doing this, it's almost like the NAP citations act as a "vote" that your business exists. You'll be able to open Google Local Business, Adwords, Adsense - anything you like once you use the address and business related to the NAPS created earlier. I have Google local business listings under addresses that don't exist - all thanks to this method.

    Might take a month or two, but it really works and absolutely no pin verification needed!

    But doesn't adsense still need the $10 verification?

    I've never had that verification at all. Just put my direct debit details in and good to go. Always had a post pay account too.

    When you write the NAP citations, does it need to be for the website you are signing up to adsense with? Thanks

    Yes it certainly does. The process looks something like this:

    1. Create website, add the NAP and phone number in the footer.
    2. Submit your NAP to as many locla business directories as you can (this will look different depending on your country/area).
    3. Wait a few months for those NAP to be indexed.
    4. When you have a good few NAP citations indexed (perhaps page 1 and 2 of the serps for your phone number full of them), then create the Google accounts.

    Hopefully, if you follow the process it should all work perfectly. You may need to verify by phone; however, by creating a VOIP number with your local area code at the start you can do this with no difficulty.

    Update:

    Big problem here. I still haven't received a notification to verify my account by address (without PIN).

    4 weeks passed since last PIN was sent.

    I can't find where to complete the form (send the documents)
