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.

i think this is great. anytime we have a new option it is good. doesn't mean i will personally use it but i'd rather work with a company that gives me more options than less options.

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.

Great news.. If you have a paypal account just for your money you can earn some decent interest or get cash back rewards on atm card for purchases. I have no problems with PayPal as long as i don't use it to sell on ebay.. ebay is another story :)

Why would anyone be willing to give up money to use paypal? Aren't there fees?

Fee?

Last received payment: $342.54 USD
Fee: -$13.66 USD

I'd say that's a bit much... especially given the direct transfer option is free. Use it as a last recourse.

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 think YPN should focus more on delivering relavant ads to the publishing network rather than trivial additions especially something like this that charges a significant fee compared to direct.

I agree with kncmultimedia on this. Why are they wasting their time with this when there are more important things to be done? Oh that's right, because Yahoo gets a cut of money from the 'fees'.

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?

I don't believe that publisher pays fees for this. I suspect Y is paying any associated fees to paypal just like they would pay the fees for the bank transfers.

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).

Will I be charged a fee for having my funds sent to my PayPal Account?

You will not be charged a transaction fee for money deposited to your PayPal account from the Yahoo! Publisher Network program.

Google 'paypal sucks' and see what's going on with paypal.

Wouldn't use it at all.

Back in the day, we used to accept direct credit card payments for non-tangible service on our site. Being naive and new at this, we did not get written signatures for every sale. Despite having, I thought, a good relationship with one buyer, one day I checked our bank account and the credit card company had stolen $8,400 from our account because the buyer, nearly 3 months later, claimed she never got the services she purchased. Without her signature as proof, we had no way of proving, by the credit card company's standards, that she'd indeed authorized the sales. We were also charged $1,500 in chargeback fees. Never got any of it back.

Paypal can do the exact same thing by freezing your account.
