Not sure I'm all that jazzed about this, but it is a step in the right direction. Previously bloggers in countries outside the USA had little option but to provide Google with a mailing address to receive a paper check at in the mail for their Google Adsense Payments.
I'm in Thailand. The first 3 secret code notifications Google sent were lost in the mail. The 4th one made it.
Recently our first check made it. Now, is that a guarantee that future checks will make it -? Hell no! I'm awaiting the 2nd check and it's late already. Should I request another check? What a SCREWY system this is...
So, Google realized how daft this was and opened up payments by Western Union for some other countries, though, sadly - this does NOT INCLUDE THAILAND Google Adsense users.
