Login to your account and click the payments tab.

What does everyone think?

You see two lines for each month:
One is for the day your payment is sent for the previous month's earnings, shown with a ($) around the figure.

The second is for the total earnings for that month, showing with the date of the last day of the month.

You can click on each for further details.

The thing that caught my eye the most is the "Payment Type: Check" when you click the payment details. Might just be a sign of future payment options to come ;)

I think many people here are complaining too strongly about something that is not that significant. No disrespect.

My perspective is I am so thankful for AS, that these design changes are inconsequential to me.

Freedom hit the nail on the head!

You can always find something to change...in this respect it is not that important.

What Freedom said.

It just isn't that big a deal.

I disagree. The Adsonar interface is a pleasure to use and when you have a tool that powerful and easy to use it does make a significant difference.

Whether AdSense is operating a good business model is not the issue here - there are usability improvements which can easily be made to the payments interface and I'm not sure if there are any good reasons why they shouldn't be made.

At the very, very least, if Adsense wants to use this new design to display payments there should be an option at the top of the page to display the stats in the old format, if the user desires.

I would opt for at-a-glance data in a second over drilling down through different pages.

Were the lower Adsonar payments as pleasurable to see?

I mean, if you like Adsonars report better.....

The AdSense interface has room for improvement, but it's quicker and easier than any of the other ad network interface's I've used.

They weren't lower for me! Agree that the adsonar interface is FAR better, although I quite like the MINOR changes that took G 10 hours (?) to complete-high tech indeed.

Yes you're right, good interfaces and good business models are mutually exclusive. You can have one or the other but not both.

And we should always settle for mediocrity in one area from a company which otherwise performs excellently in most if not all other areas.

I liked the old layout better.

Incidentally, in Australia I see both spellings as "check" and the money prefix is $, not USD.

Hi
I have
Payment Type: Check
Check Date: Feb 23, 2005
Check Number: #*$!xxxxxx

What does the Check Date denote?
Is this the date when the check is sent by them or is it the clearance date of the check?

Someone Please clarify.

P.S I have not yet received my Check.I am from HYDERABAD,INDIA.

I believe the check date is the date they cut (print) the check. (i.e. not the date it was mailed or cleared)

I prefer the old layout, but it's not a big deal

I would however love for Adsense to implement direct payment into my UK bank account (like Commission Junction does), rather than have to mess around with Dollar cheques and paying commission rates. (or even PayPal payment would be preferable)
