I'm in Canada and I've been receiving EFT payments for many years. Today I received this message on my Adsense home page:
"Your AdSense account has been upgraded to a new payments system. Learn more.."
Upon clicking Learn More. I get this instruction:
To continue to receive payments via Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) you must enter your International Bank Account Number (IBAN) and Bank Identifier Code (BIC) account details into your AdSense account so that your payment can be sent to your bank account successfully.
Do I need to do anything? I had already added a bank before. Should I add a NEW bank?
Google made a boo-boo. They should have included Canada in the exempt countries. In the instructions, there's a link that says something like "click here how to enter your bank.." and it redirects you to "Receiving Payment by EFT."
If you had already been receiving payments via EFT, then you don't have to do anything.
