Other advertisers do it. Google has bank accounts in almost every country they have advertisers in. (so, everywhere :)

What do you guys think? Should we all send emails to google telling them to finally make direct deposits on publishers bank accounts?

If not, :-), what are your thoughts on these:
Will they ever do direct deposits? If yes, when?
Or are they just using delaware citibank because of the tax? (That's where I get my checks from - I'm not from U.S.)
As I understand, they don't have to pay as much in tax there as they would in other U.S. states.

Yes it would be a good idea for everyone. Perhaps if Google didn't want to pay direct into non US banks, they could offer alternatives? Perhaps payment through PayPal or other such services? This would avoid costly cheque conversion charges.

Well... I [and I am sure many are] am willing to pay a fee for such a service. $10 good enough? how about $20? Will do if I can have my money in time instead of waiting 2 months and if god forbid the cheque get's misplaced [4 times in my 9 months] then add 2 more months.

My guess is it's just a matter of "interest". Sum up lost cheques and 1 month of approval time... probably millions of dollars in interest!

If you distribute hundreds of millions in revenue to tons of people you want to make absolutely certain you don't have any bugs in your code.. I think with all things google that's why we're not seeing it; they'll be aware that they'll save tons of money if they implement it but they wont want to handle thousands of trouble tickets.

What might be nice is a google type of paypal ... but they already have trouble hiring the best & brightest so hopefully they'll just concentrate on their core competencies.

If G is worried about Tax payment issues... well.. no don't think so.. there are probably a million publishers who don't pay the tax on adsense earnings.
But how about if google decides on a premium payment service. Submit company documents... Submit tax returns... Pay a small fee... and get direct deposit on the day of approval.
Strange that it can't be implemented considering G is sooo many fantastic things this should be a nobrainer.

Another: How about a visa card which would give you direct access to your adsense earnings.

Another: How about merging adsense and adwords.. so I can pay with my earnings and take the balance amount.

But all this will surely kill a lot of secondary revenue.

Trouble ticket should not be such an issue.. after all they can always write up some "dear john...'s" :-D

As I mentioned in a previous lonely post - it is my understanding that 'alternative' payment methods are being worked on presently.

I currently pay some of my advertisers up to $100 to wire payments into my Australia account.

C'mon Google - for a tech company checks are pretty 'old skool'

This is would be wonderful however have you ever tried getting an offshore Dollar Visa card (I'm in the UK)?

There are so many forms to complete and so much information to provide it makes it nothing but a problem which is complete madness when I consider how much doorstep spam mail I get offering me UK Visa cards from every UK bank without any hassle whatsoever.

And what is even more annoying is that most (all?) American banks in the UK offering these cards cannot offer US Dollar Visa accounts.

Let me know if there is one.

Straight into my PayPal account would be very welcomed too or how about Google paying into a Delaware account which it sets up for us?

Google is well aware that publishers want direct deposit, so there is no real need to bombard them with emails ;) They have already confirmed that they are looking into alternative payment options for this year. But in true AdSense fashion, it will probably just magically appear in our control panel one day ;)

They have said there will be changes to the payment area of the control panel sometime very soon (ie. within days or weeks) although it sounds more like a reporting change to the payments, rather than a change to the payments format.

Also, we have had plenty of discussion on this topic if you want to go and read them:

I hope that everyone who got asked to take part in the recent survey mentioned Direct Deposit as something they would like to see happen!

Personally, I'd be surprised if it's not up and running by the end of the year.

I also would like a direct deposit payment but wait a minute,with checks we are in control (up to a certain extent)on the tax year income and VAT (uk tax) quarterly return submission.

In certain instances, by delaying cashing a payment or two into the following tax period there are tangible income tax benefits to gain,an example is if you are on the treshold of a higher tax band rate.

To the smart guys out there, if you are in the UK you are strongly advised to declare your adsense income ( before it gets declared for you :-) ).

My prediction-based on no knowledge at all-not going to happen in the foreseeabel future. We have had countless threads on this topic and what G wants G will do. What publishers want-who cares.

I know it's gets talked about here a lot, but has anyone inquired/requested it from google? I know I have not, but perhaps we should be emailing their support to request it.

Yes, it has been requested many times.

As Jenstar stated, they are well aware of the demand for direct deposit for publishers.

Now it's just up to them whether they want to implement it or not (or decide the best way to do it).

I spoke with a G employee one time and they don't release things in print because it has to be approved by a slew of people including lawyers. So the tech guy will work on a new feature and just flip a switch randomly whenever they feel like it. I think they mostly don't like dealing with lawyers that is why they surprise us with things.

It would be nice to receive payment in euros for european publishers. However, this will probably never happen

Yeah. Pay us with google shares.
If all of us bundle our earnings as google shares, we'll own 0.0000000000000000000000000000000000000001% of google.

l33t, r0cks and it definetly ph33rs.

FromRocky, I know the survey didn't mention Direct Deposit. But there were places where you could say what you wanted, not just select from standardized choices....

Although Direct Transfer is not a bad idea, I wouldn't complain if PayPal was an option.
