Affiliate Marketing is one of the best ways to make money online. There are many people out there who are making thousands of dollars every month just by doing this.

If we talk about Affiliate Marketing programs, then no doubt, Amazon provides one of the biggest affiliate programs in the world.

If you are an Amazon affiliate marketer living outside of the US, it will be hard for you to get paid because Amazon doesn’t provide the Paypal option for money transfer.

If you go with the cheque, then it will take several days to receive. Plus, they also charge a fee.

So now, what is the other option to receive payment from Amazon affiliate?

You travel to the US and receive your payment. Just kidding.

There is another payment service just like Paypal known as Payoneer through which you can receive Amazon affiliate payments within a few days straight to your local bank account.

Being an affiliate marketer myself, I have been using their service to receive the payments and all I can say; I am quite satisfied with their service.

  1. Hey Mahesh,

    Interesting article. Does using Payoneer and therefore the Direct Deposit payment option for “US associate only” make you responsible to pay taxes in the US as well?

    Thanks, Janneke

    • Well as my niche is in Online marketing, so all my products are digital. Therefore, I only use Amazon for few products which are quiet cheap. This is the reason, I don’t make much from Amazon. Till now, I haven’t seen such thing as you mentioned. I mean whatever I have earned, I have received full amount. But I don’t know, if you will earn in hundreds or thousands, maybe you need to pay tax.

  2. Mahesh, thanks a lot for this article. I am also in Amazon Associates and until now i am waiting for my check. I am from the Philippines so payment for me is send via Check.

    So i will try to use payooner for my next payment. Hope it will going well. Thanks again

  3. Really useful content for me! However, I have a question, being from India, I am automatically directed to Associate program (for affiliate marketing) and not But is there any way to apply to associates program (from outside USA) as I can see there’s an obvious difference in product catalog and quality when I compare the .com and .in portals?
