    I doubt it..

    Google is launching a payment system. Paypal is owned by ebay, Ebay is huge -I doubt Yahoo or Google would like to give ebay that kind of leverage.
    Yahoo will probably launch its own payment system once it is earning enough from YPN.

    I dont think so either...obviously G will accept their own payment system in the future but allowing for Ebay to control their payouts would prolbably not be acceptable.

    Why not just setup direct deposit? even better than PayPal IMO.

    Might do that.. it would save me a trip to the bank..
    but i usually transfer my adsense $$$ to my paypal account.
    i havent had any problems with paypal and i have a paypal debit card which uses my funds from paypal.

    true, however I personally like to have money in my paypal account so i can easily purchase instead of waiting for my bank account to transfer money.

    Just what I thought. I have a single account with only ever a few hunderd ££ in it that I use purely for online buying (although I dropped clanger the other day and transferred £20,000 into it in error :( good job the scammers didn't choose that day to rip me off lol). I just go onto paypal make the purchase, and it transfers the money from my bank into my PP account, and straight back out again to make the payment.

    One good thing about using a dollar based account with paypal, is that technically if you make your purchases with paypal, and the goods do not come to the UK (hosting services, holidays etc) then as you have not repatriated the moeny, there should be no tax to pay as it is offshore earnings. I have to say that it is not as straight forward as it sounds, as you should have proper financial advice with this regard or you could be storing up problems.

    If you use pay pal for google, it's just basically using an extra unnecessary step. I mean you can get the money from google the same ways you can from paypal aside from the online credit, so why send it to pay pal when you're just gonna request a check or EFT through Pay Pal eventually anyway.

    You would want to give paypal 2.5% of your earnings? Doesn't make a lot of sense to me. EFT is free, its quick. A check is free, its a little slower.

    But EFT isn't available for every country, is it? I like Google because they can send checks in local currencies. Charges for cashing US$ checks are exorbitant for non-US publishers.

    How do you do that? :confused:

    Oh, so you mean adsense --> EFT to your bank --> paypal? I thought it was adsense to paypal directly :)

    what i do is take my check to the bank and deposit it into my account..
    then it takes a day for the money from the check to be availible..
    Then when my funds are availible i go to my paypal account and transfer the exact amount that i deposited into my bank account to my paypal account.
    To me Paypal is alot better for shoping online.. It is faster
