I just received notice from google today that EFT payment option is now available to publishers from Hong Kong. This is good news for me and all publishers from this city, I have been waiting for this. I went ahead and added a bank account, now just awaiting for the test deposit. I hope this is faster than paypal. It takes 5 days for my funds to reach my Hong Kong bank account when transferring money from paypal.

Check it out maybe your country has been added as well.

It is good to see they are adding more countries to the EFT. Do you have the option of choosing the currency?

Hi,
I think they mentioned about currency option during adding a bank account process and I remember it was saying they'll use the currency that we choose when receiving checks.

Great news for Hong Kong.

As for the time it takes, like you it takes about 5 days for me to see money withdrawn from paypal in my UK bank, I normally see my Google payment in the bank in 3 days from the time PIP appears.

Hello!

May I know where the payment is sending from?
Bank in the US or bank in HK?

Thanks!

It appears that EFT payments have arrived to webmasters in Hungary, too - at least now I see an option to set up EFT as a payment option.

The FAQ section is yet to be updated:
[google.com...]

Maybe the topic title could now be changed to something like: EFT available in more countries or something.

We're happy to confirm that we're testing EFT as a payment option in Hong Kong and Hungary. If you see EFT as a payment option in your AdSense account, please feel free to submit your bank information. If you do not see EFT in your account yet, please be assured that we'll soon be rolling it out to all publishers in both locations. We appreciate your patience in the meantime.

Hi hoball,

We perform domesic bank transfers in the currency of your country.

When signing up for EFT, please do so with a bank account in the currency of your country.

When will other countries be added? Like Luxembourg? (Luxembourg isn't even in the list of the countries I can choose for the preview tool!)

Hi all,

While I cannot provide specific details, I can assure you that we are working hard to provide more payment options for more locations. We appreciate your patience.

Bluepixel, thanks for pointing out that Luxembourg does not currently appear in the list of countries available on the preview tool. I have escalated this issue to our engineers.

Well, I decided it was time to switch from check to EFT. To my surprise, this payment option has been removed (temporarily?) from my account (Hungary) - it was available in early April. Ouch.

I think they are still testing the feature and you are one of the limited members that were invited to participate, but since you didn't join right away your spot might have been filled by someone else.

BTW, I just got my first gmoney for the first time via eft. The waiting time was cut by about 4 days compare to receiving check. Thanks again google!

Hi radix,

thegreatpretender is right, EFT is a new payment option we are rolling out in Hungary, and it is therefore available only to a limited number of publishers at present. We plan to offer this option to more publishers in Hungary in the near future. If you wish to wait until you can receive your payments via EFT, you may wish to place a self-hold on your account.

We appreciate your patience.

Hi ASA,

Thanks for weighing in with info. No worries here. Checks work fine, EFT looks promising. Will go for EFT when available.
