This is the best way which I know of that any publisher would receive his adsense payment. It’s the fastest payment method.
With the Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT), google adsense payment team directly deposits your AdSense earnings into your bank account, in your local currency, to greatly speed up and simplify the payment process.
However, as at the time of compiling this post, the Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) is not available to all adsense publishers, since it’s selective and to ONLY some specific countries.
If the EFT is available in your location, I will personally advice you to sign up. EFT is fast, secure, and environmentally friendly, and it’s the Google adsense MOST recommended payment method for their publishers.
According to latest report from the adsense guys, they’re trying very hard to make it available in as many locations as possible.
If you decide to sign up for EFT, which I highly recommend, you will need to provide details about your bank account and verify your account using a small test deposit, just like the same way Paypal used in verifying bank accounts.
List of Countries In Which Electronic Funds Transfer is Available
Electronic funds transfer is available in the following countries which are listed below, and the payment currency:
|Hong Kong||Hong Kong Dollar|
|New Zealand||New Zealand Dollar|
|United States||United States Dollar|
|United Kingdom||British Pound|
Google Adsense Currency and Exchange Rate
Even when you decided to signed up for your local currency payments, your earnings will still be calculated in US Dollars, but during payment, the adsense team will converted your earnings from US Dollar to your local currency at the time of payment.
If your bank account is in another currency, your payment will be converted once more to the local currency of your bank account (your country currency).
To avoid having your AdSense payment converted twice, we recommend that you use a bank account in your country’s local currency.
If you still wish to use a foreign currency bank account to receive your AdSense payment, please check with your bank to find out if they will accept a payment in another currency and whether there will be any charges. You’re then welcome to enter the bank account details.
Please note that some banks may charge you for changing from foreign currency to local currency, however, Adsene never charge you any fees for using EFT (As at the time of compiling this article).

How To Update My Adsense Bank Information
Just like several multi-million companies, incorrect or unverified bank account information can’t be changed or removed from your account at this time. Instead, to provide correct information, you’ll need to add a new bank account.
