Australian AdSense Publishers Get Direct Debit Payments

Good news for Aussies today with AdSense notifyig them that they can now be paid by direct deposit! Here’s an excerpt from the email sent:

‘We have recently added a new payment option for Australia and wish to invite you to sign up to receive payments directly to your bank account.

I’m not sure if this is just an Australian thing or whether other countries have now been upgraded to EFT payments also but I know a few other Aussies that will be happy about this one.

    Yeah, we have that setup in the good ole USA as well =)

  2. james says:

    Direct deposit has existed in Canada for a while. Google seems very good about timing the deposit so that it arrives before the last day of the month, even if weekends get in the way.

  3. John says:

    Is yahoo publishing in Australia yet? It would be a great focal point.

    I am glad that google is continuing to improve itself

  5. Woohoo! I much prefer DD – now if Google can let us transfer our AdSense balance into an AdWords account for spending on PPC (which I am sure is in the works) I’ll be even happier.

    I wish we’ll have such facility for Adsense publishers in Malaysia in the future.

  7. Martin says:

    Good news and long overdue.

    I’m with Yaro here – being able to move my AdSense earning into my AdWords account would make life easier.

  8. Anthony says:

    This is sweet news.

  9. Paul says:

    I’m surprised it’s taken so long for this feature to reach Australian Adsense publishers, we’ve had the option of receiving payments by direct bank transfer for some time now in the UK and we’re usually neglected by US companies when it comes to features like that.

  10. We have this in Germany for about one year now, and I was very happy when Google made this switch, as German banks took horrible fees for the American issued checks that we got send before.

  11. Swade says:

    Funny, I didn’t get this email. hope they’re opening it up to all Aussies.

  12. Marco says:

    When will that be an option in Brazil? :-(

  13. Michael says:

    The fees for the US Google checks were really annoying, but fortunately this times are over in Germany.

  14. Declan says:

    About time!

  15. Kashif Aziz says:

    Waiting for this to happen in our part of the world as well.

  16. Laurent says:

    This payment method is already working in Belgium and i got my first payment. it’s working really fine. You can even set multiple bank account.

  17. colbert says:

    lovely. we Malaysians are left out of all this again. sigh

  18. Duncan says:

    You know, I only got my last Google cheque today…but now I’m totally happy!

  19. Soj says:

    After reading this great news i logged into my Adsense account and attempted to change my payment options from cheque to direct debit. There was nothing, so i did a search in Adsense help and found a list of countries which are supported for direct debit;
    Great Britain
    United States

    Australia was not listed :(

  20. Darren Rowse says:

    Oddly enough today when I logged into my AdSense account to add my bank account the option to do so is now gone. It was definately there a few days back. Something wierd is going on. I’ve emailed them to see what’s going on.


  1. […] ProBlogger: Aussies AdSense publishers can now be paid by EFT, which is heaps better than paying by cheques which always took ages to deliver (and sometimes I am too lazy to deposit). To change payment to EFT, (1) Go to My Account/Account Settings in AdSense (2) Edit “Payment Details” (3) Put in your BSB and Account Number. It’ll take up to 10 days for Google to deposit a small amount which is needed to verify the account. […]
