Google (owner of Blogger and YouTube) wants to be on the forefront of cutting edge technology, leaders of the innovation of the Internet, and the top rung on the ladder for tech companies. Yet, if you are part of Google AdSense program you get paid like it's the 1990's.
What is AdSense? AdSense is a program that webmasters use to make money for their websites. How? A webmaster or a blogger signs up and places code into their web templates and Google uses it top technology to send relevant ads to that site. For instance, if you have a cat blog and have AdSense ads on your site, Google will probably send text or image ads that relate to cat products. When someone clicks on ad, you get paid. Payment varies on how much each ad pays.
When do you get paid? You're paid when your balance reaches over $100.00. Google either sends you a check in the mail or direct deposits it to your bank account on the 15th of each month. How 90's of them.
If, for instance, you have accumulated $2000 in AdSense revenue from the 1st of the month to the seventh, you must wait until the 15th to receive it in the form of a check or direct deposit. Why?
Google is a multi-billion dollar company whose stock sells for five-hundred plus dollars a share. It's the number three most used website. It's creators are billionaires. Why is the AdSense program so low rent when it comes to payments?
Why not introduce a Google AdSense debit card? A card you can use to get your AdSense money anytime you desire it?
If you 'Google' debit cards you will see hundreds of small companies offering them. With most debit cards that are not issued by banks, you pay a monthly fee and get to deposit and withdraw your money.
If Google is worried about defaults, they could issue several types of cards, one for smaller websites and one for corporations. The smaller companies or blogs that make a profit could only use the card for cash withdrawals. Although, it should be noted that PayPal allows you to withdraw cash and purchase products.
A Google AdSense debit card makes sense to me but I'm just a blogger. Webmasters, who are successful, will not have to wait until the 15th to receive payment. Google AdSense is a great program that could be made better by this addition in my opinion.
