Ever since the inception of Adsense, publishers begged for payments via direct deposit. About a month and a half ago, Google announced that they were finally going to give it a try - in beta of course. I immediately signed up for it. Today, the payment hit my bank. It was nice to wake up to find the money sitting there in my bank account. Still, it amazes me that it took Google this long to make it happen. I mean, we are talking about one of the most tech-savvy companies in the world. Yet, it took a year or more for them to move away from paper checks. It really astounds me. Oh well, better late than never I suppose. Thanks Google for finally making it happen.
