My understanding is that you could get paid directly to your bank account also, but you had to put in a manual request when you hit the threshold. Been that long since I looked at the terms and conditions on the market place though.
ohh really sorry it's been a long day, i haven't seen this, sorry again
4.5.Alternative payment methods to you. If we agree to make non-PayPal payments to you, then we can instead make payments by bank transfer to you. However, this will only apply for balances above $250 (two hundred and fifty US dollars) and on a quarterly basis. If in any quarter your balance is less than that amount, we will hold it until a quarter when it exceeds that amount. If you have a balance of less than $250 for more than eight consecutive quarters, we will pay you the balance. We will not pay you any interest on any sums we hold for you under this section.
