How many people use Adsense under age 18?





Relnar
I just wondered, because I KNOW that's against their TOS, but still... I'm sure some people do...

I use it under my parent's name. They are okay with it, I even emailed them to make sure. As long as it's under an adult's name.

They don't check your age actually, so if you're 13 you could still use it and get paid. The problem is taxes!

Ye i do the same thing, and you dont have to wory about taxes if you dont live in the us or if you dont do anything in the us then there is no problem with taxes.

I started Adsense when I was 14.

Yeah!!

I started my google adsense account at 16. Now I am 17 but the adsense check comes to my momes name.

So I have to change my name to my parents name? Is that a must, or can I just keep it to my name?

Do you have a bank account in your name anyway? These checks can't probably be cashed in by people other than those who own a bank account..

And in many parts of the world, having a bank account of your own requires that you be 18 or older.. So you might have trouble encashing the check.

It is always safer to have it in your parents name till you are 18. I did the same thing and then I transferred it to my name then.. One email to their support team would do..

Yes, you should use your parents or big sister/brother name if you are under age. However, on certain countries you don't pay any taxes for your online income, including adsense. So you can always use your name and use fake age, just type you're 19 old and you'll be OK. The problems perhaps on cashing your adsense check. If you have a bank account under your name, then you'll be all right.

PS: I don't say you can fake your details, it's illegal perhaps. I just said the real situation.
