Google AdSense Discontinuing Payments By Check

Google AdSense EFTGoogle announced plans to discontinue paying AdSense publishers by check in all countries where they officially support paying by electronic funds transfer (EFT).

Google said "EFT payments are free of charge, less error prone, more efficient and the most environmentally-friendly payment method." In fact, Google has recommended EFT since before 2007, just two years after the EFT option within AdSense went out of beta.

Now, Google is going to require most publishers to receive payment via EFT. For most of you, this is not a big deal. Personally, I've always received them via check, but switching to EFT is not a big deal for me.

Google wrote:

With these changes, please note that the new system won’t support check payments in countries where we offer EFT as a form of payment. If you’re located in a country where we offer EFT payments and you currently receive check payments, please be advised that you’ll need to complete a few steps once your account is upgraded. However, no immediate action is required on your part at the moment. Once your account is transitioned to the new system, you’ll receive an email notification with detailed instructions on setting up EFT payments.

To see if you are effected, see the list of countries on this page.

Here is a video Google made on EFT AdSense payments in 2009:

Is this going to be an issue for you?

Agreed with Praveen, Even i personally requested Google to start with EFT as India is the most required, Its hard when payment date is around coming via courier check and someone has to be at home. Once i missed the cheque and it took one and half month after re-request as missed cheque. Dear Google, Once again we request... Please be faster for India.

Wish they'd do this for South Africa as well. It takes forever to a check to arrive, sometimes gets lost in the mail and it costs a rediculous amount to cash a check in SA and then you still wait ten days for it to process. Open EFT to South Africa, Google!

Google says for account types - "Checking: a checking account used primarily for business purposes (not personal, family, or household purposes) Savings: a savings account used primarily for business purposes (not personal, family, or household purposes)" I am confused. I can't use my personal account? Have to open a business account??

Basically this is just a way for them to get people on Google Wallet and compete with PayPal.

Nice article. Unfortunately, they haven't added this payment method for india. In india, it's always a difficult task to gather your check. I think, they should include Paypal as one of their payment method. What do you think?

Bcoz of some RBI & Govt. rules in India it's hard to do business from outside to India. I hate "Congress" they made rules. EFT should be start may Google or bluedart problem their business running bcoz of google adsense. PayPal is Competitor of Google i think !
