Lower Payment Threshold?

 12:59 am on Mar 22, 2005 (gmt 0)

When Google was issuing paper checks it made sense that you had to earn $100 before you got paid since there were a number of processing/printing/mailing fees associated with payment. Now that they have electronic payment will they lower the threshold, say to like $10? It costs almost nothing for them to make an electronic deposit since it's completely automated.

What do you all think about this?

its only 10 bucks, theres no point.

infact anything under 100 dallars isnt really neccesary.

umm well maybe 20 that way you got your web host payment every month, :) but you do make a good point, most other programs pay 50 dollars and above, so maybe they can lower to 50. I think.

It would be nice to see a lower payout threshold I know, doubt if they'll do it though.

If they lower it too much I would expect them to ask you to eat the transaction fees as the cost effectiveness of even direct deposit diminishes when the payments get too low.

If you really need $10 that badly you could earn it faster wearing a chicken suit handing out fliers in front of KFC.

it was $50 only a few months back. They raised it to $100. They have to pay bank transfer fees as well, I'm not sure how much Google pays.. but at my bank they charge anywhere from 0.50 to 1.00 for transaction fees. that's more than a stamp.

No the minimum amount for Adsense checks has always been $100.

Direct payment is only for selected 15 countries. For the rest of the world, they still have to send the checks. I don't think they will lower the threshold for some contries only. I think they will not lower the threshold in the near future.

The average cost for an institution doing bulk direct deposits, like an employeer would do for payroll, is $.10. If Google wants me to kick in that or even $.50 I'd be glad to.

Some of us only make $100 every 4 to 5 months so it would be nice to get the money faster to pay for hosting and PPC.

I don't think so. I am positive it was $50 because I had helped a client set up an account which paid out at less than $100.

it was never $50. you must have got it in an year end cheque where they send everything u had earned.

For threshhold idea, i think it should be like an online account with adsense with EFT. Google should simple keep on adding what we earn each day, ( or week or month ), and we should be able to withdraw through EFT any amount keeping a minimum balance.. :) Smart idea i guess.
I still dont have EFT to my country, but I hope it would soon be there.
