Just checked if HK were included... still not in the list. I hope Hong Kong will follow soon. I think they have office here and I'm sure it won't be hard for them to set up EFT with Hong Kong banks like paypal does.
I have a feeling publishers in India probably take home a big part of adsense earnings. Any one has any info on this? Google already has a presence in India so why aren't we getting EFTs? waiting a month for that payment is cruel, very cruel :(
Cheque here as well. (note spelling Rish ;) ) Oh well, next time.
Paul, I didn't receive an email either, no idea what the criteria for EFT is, but the option appeared in my profile so I took advantage of it. Have a look at your payment options and see if it is listed as an option.
EFT is not available in my country. Will Google allow me to use a bank account in some other country, different than mine? Now, in the billing preferences, I don't even see an option for EFT, I have only 2 options: cheque and secured cheque. I guess it is because of my address. I'm still waiting for payment for January revenues, getting a cheque on the mail is a pain in the neck for me. I think of flying to the Netherlands to open a bank account especially for this purpose. Did anybody do something (crazy) like that?
I know it's not crazy :) but flying to Holland for that purpose and having a bank account for that purpose only, is not something many people would do, The thing is, I'm not sure if G will accept my new bank account details, since I don't even see this option in the billing preferences.
