Today at Yahoo! Publisher Network we’re pleased, and I mean pleased, to announce that publishers in our network now have the option to be paid via PayPal, rather than by check or by electronic funds transfer.
In addition to the greater flexibility and convenience offered by PayPal, publishers who opt in will enjoy a reduced payment threshold, from $100 to just $50.
this new option also allows them to lower the payment threshold. which probably wont impact most people here but i can imagine alot of smaller publishers being happy about that.
i think this is a no brainer. if you are doing business with someone you should make it as easy as possible to do business and that means providing options. kudos to yahoo.
Why would you have $ put into Paypal for, as Jon_King says, a fee when you can have the $ directly deposited into your bank account for free?
Because they've also lowered the payout to 50.00. Small YPN publishers will use the paypal option just so they don't have to wait til they reach 100.00.
I don't blame them for trying to make as much money as they can, but they could at least wake up and smell the coffee on the many, many complaints.
What? You don't like the ads being served? But, didn't you know that we offer PayPal?
It is nice to get 5+% interest on the money right away.
I've used paypal extensively for most customer transactions and have never had a problem.
And, for me their fees are less than when I have to use my credit card merchant account (when a customer pays for something via credit card).
Paypal can do the exact same thing by freezing your account.
