So the friggin' Google has this thing where in order to get onto Google Play you a)Need an incorporated company and b)Need a verified bank account associated with that company. Of course. This makes perfect sense. So of course we jump through the hoops. The next step is for Google to make a tiny deposit into that bank account (like, less than a dollar). Then you tell Google how much that deposit was, so that they can verify that it's really you. Makes sense (get it -- 'cents'?).
On June 17 they made their deposit. On June 17 I typed the amount into the required field. On June 17 I was told that the amount I had entered was not correct and that I had two more attempts remaining.
What would you do? Well, I panicked of course. After a great deal of floundering around the Google Pay Help site, what with 'Did you find this article helpful' and 'Please describe your problem' predigested nonhuman and decidedly nonhelpful help site navigation I finally found a call helpline actual phone number. I actually spoke to a human about my little concern, who told me that I had to wait two to five business days before entering that deposit amount. Damn.
So I waited. And I succeeded. Finally the required field entry took, and I was in. Finally, the millions in entirely optional in game ad revenue could come pouring in.
So yesterday (was it yesterday? The dates float by these days) Google sent me an email - 'Reminder to verify your bank account'. I'm sorry what? I'm pretty sure I've already done that. I'm pretty sure I've already jumped through the hoops, eagerly chased my owner around the triangle shaped block and leaped over the hurdles to win Best in Show. Proceed to the Google Pay site that has me verify my bank account. Click 'Verify'. Reenter the amount of tiny deposit from June 17. Have Google claim that the amount doesn't match and that I must contact Google Pay Help.

Going to bed now, more tomorrow.
