I'm not a beta tester, but on the list for later this year. This concerns me significantly. If they can't get the payments straight in beta, I feel sorry for those who jumped ship from Adsense. You take a risk and they reward you with payment double speak and uncertainty? When I display the ads I expect to get paid, and get paid on time. This FAQ at 45 days is much later than Adsense. By the time the check arrives it would be 50-60 days. That is slow pay in my book. Wayyyyy to slow for a small business owner.
I don't think so. Glad I didn't go beta with them.
I think the difference might be because of the transfer of earnings to your YSM account - it would make sense if they allow you to transfer the $ to your YSM account before they send the check, gives you the opportunity to transfer funds before they cut the check.
