Why am I getting “A payments account was canceled” from AdSense?

A payments account was canceled

You’re getting “A payments account was canceled” from AdSense because your YouTube payments have been moved to a separate tab.

The email was wrongly sent by Google because they thought that your payment account was canceled.

YouTube is aware of it and they are currently investigating the issue.

If you got the email, there’s nothing to worry about because your account isn’t canceled.

Instead, it’s moved to a separate tab where you can access your YouTube payments.

A ton of YouTubers are tweeting about the email on Twitter.

“Ah, Google and its mastery of communication, letting you know that your Adsense account has been canceled without telling you that it’s been replaced by a YouTube payments account, thus creating a good 5 minutes of panic. Never change Google”.

“@TeamYouTube I just received an email that says “One of your payments accounts was canceled”. Is this something that needs to be looked into or just to be ignored, given I’ve seen many people having the issue?”.

“Hey guys, I really need your help. I received an email this morning from Google AdSense that said that my payments account was recently canceled”.
