Google AdSense to discontinue check payments in countries where EFT is supported

Google has announced some major upgrades to the payment system on their AdSense platform.

The most important change as part of this upgrade is that the company would no longer offer check payments in countries where they already support payments via Electronic Funds Transfer.

Google AdSense users would have to connect their AdSense account with their bank accounts to process the payments through EFT.

Google said:

For publishers located in countries where we offer payments via Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT), we’ve made improvements to this form of payment to give you quicker access to your earnings. Once your account has been upgraded to our new system, EFT payments will appear in your bank account just days after posting to your Payments page. As always, EFT payments are free of charge, less error prone, more efficient and the most environmentally-friendly payment method.
