Vendor payments via bank transfer?

Is it possible that we have an option to receive our vendor payments via wire (bank) transfer and not PayPal?

Few reason about it:

- PayPal does not work in many countries (Russia, Pakistan, etc), developers from such countries can't post apps in BB App World because they dont have PayPal account

- PayPal currency conversion rates are insane, European developers are loosing much just because of this

- PayPal has daily withdraw limit for some countries, i.e. you cannot withdraw more than 500$ daily. It's a real pain to transfer the earnings, it may take week or two if you are lucky enough  to get more sales

 

Btw BBAS (advertisement service) payments are sent via bank transfer

Re: Vendor payments via bank transfer?

Thanks! I didn't know that it is possible at all.

 

However I'd love to have this as option in the vendor portal, so I can choose it by myself. Besides PayPal account is a mandatory step in the vendor registration, so developers from some countries (Russia  etc.) won't be able to register at all.

 

Any chance to include bank transfer payments option in App World 3.0?
