Last day, there are so many Google AdSense publishers got noticed and received notifications in the AdSense console that “Your payment amount is higher than your chosen form of payment.” Those publishers are now confused and don’t know what to do with that. I personally checked that there are tons of complaints from publishers.
I can’t mention all those complaints here in the blog post, but few of them here:
“Your payout amount is more than your chosen form of payment can accept in your country. I have selected Western Union as my primary payment method. I’m getting payment from last 5 years through Western Union. Pending payment of previous month is just $350 but suddenly i got this error message at my google adsense account that “Your payout amount is more than your chosen form of payment can accept in your country. To continue getting paid please choose a new payment method.”
“I got an email saying: Your payment method details for Google AdSense were changed on 17 Apr 2019. For your security, please review this change and contact us if you have any questions. I didn’t change anything and when I logged things look normal so I am not sure what they’re talking about? Can someone please explain since i am worried for security of my account.”

Here are some replies:
I am seeing that mostly issues are coming from Pakistan and India, especially those who are using Western Union as primary payment method. I will advise to publishers that keep monitor your bank account, payment modes, Google Adsense Console and actively participate in the AdSense forum and highlighted the issues. For more details check the Google AdSense Community (Payment).
