Yahoo! Publisher Network has just launched a few new features for publishers, including the much longed for direct deposit. They have also included an option for publishers to automatically allow YPN to do tax withholding on their earnings. And lastly, they have announced that they will pay publishers on the 25th of the month, which puts them several days ahead of when Google AdSense sends their payments to publishers.
For more details on all the changes, please see YPN launches direct deposit, tax withholding and faster payment turnaround on JenSense.
