    GAN Payments through Google AdSense
    I got an email from my account manager and a call from a support person, requesting that I sign up for a beta of linking my GAN and AdSense accounts and getting my affiliate payments through AdSense. Anyone else get this? What's your take?

    I expressed some concerns about whether I would continue to get paid twice a month or just once a month if I did this. I was told that it would only be once a month, but that it would be much faster. HUH? I asked several times how that could be, but never got anything but general platitudes.

    They told me that everyone will be switching to this in about 3 months, so I can either sign up now or get it forced on me in 3 months.

    GAN is already pretty much the slowest paying affiliate network out there. I'm not very excited about these changes.

    What about GAN affiliates who do not participate in AdSense at all nor wish to do so?

    I don't like this arrangement.


    P.S. I prefer checks

    That's a stupid request.
    Why should we accept that?
    Are they thinking they have a monopoly?

    What about GAN affiliates that don't use AdSense or are there none?

    I've been waiting for the opportunity to have the earnings combined for a while since GAN doesn't have direct deposit for me and Adsense does. I hope I won't experience the usual roll-out delay since normally people in USA get all the new features right away whereas us international publishers normally get access after the buzz wears off.

    I heard from one affiliate who was kicked out of AdSense years ago and now Google won't open another AdSense account for him to receive GAN payments...

    Pretty silly, if you ask me.

    And after that they will combine it with AdWords. So AdWords can take money out of Gan/Adsense. It will complete the circle.

    Very interesting news.
    In fact, I just got some update about the Google Prodcut ad beta, which let the GAN merchant to launch text adverts in Google search in CPA model. In fact Google launch some CPA product in its big client before, but then deactivated that product after buying Double Click and got through in the US gorvenment.

    Can I look forward that more and more adwords advertiser will be available soon ? lol
