We informed you earlier on this year of the newly introduced feature that allows Nigerian Google Adsense users to Start Receiving Payments Directly to their Bank Accounts via international wire transfer.
This is a welcomed development, I personally consider it a big upgrade to the tedious check system that will normally force you to wait for days or even months before cashing your Google Adsense earning to your domiciliary account.
The international bank wire transfer introduced to Nigerian Google Adsense users was believed by majority of Nigerian bloggers to work only with a domiciliary account in US Dollars ($).
But that isn’t the case as I have personally cashed my Google adsense earning via a Diamond Bank Savings Accounts and my closest buddy down here cashed his with Zenith Bank Savings Account.
With this prove we can say that most bank’s savings account in Nigeria can actually withdraw the Google Adsense earning without requiring you to open a domiciliary account.
The List of Banks Already Confirmed to Pay to Directly to Nigeria Savings Account
Most bloggers are already aware that GT Bank Savings Account can’t receive funds from international bank wire transfer done in US Dollars ($), this means that you can’t cash your Google adsense earning via a GTB savings account except you’re ready to link it up with a Dom account.
