Receiving payments by bank transfer

A bank transfer is a method of electronic funds transfer. It allows you to receive funds directly into your bank account. Google sends your earnings in US Dollars or Euros, depending on your account currency, via international bank transfer to the bank of your choice, and you get the money in the bank account that you have specified. This is a fast, simple and secure method for receiving your payments.

In this video we cover how to ensure that you are set up correctly to receive a bank transfer payment.
