We all know that Amazon Associates do not use PayPal to send Payments. The only way to receive them is either by gift card, direct deposit (Only U.S) & Check.

If you do not like to receive your payment as a gift card or as a Check that requires a minimum of $100 earning, you can try Payoneer. With Payoneer, you can receive the payment from Amazon U.S Associates as a Non-U.S citizen.

But how do you get started and what are the steps involved? That is what I am going to show you in this guide. So, if you are ready, let us start with what exactly is Payoneer?

What is Payoneer?

Payoneer website

Payoneer is a financial services company just like PayPal that provides online money transfer and digital payment services. It provides cross border payments from over 200 countries that helps millions of businesses and professionals every day.

Companies like Google, Airbnb, Upwork, Getty Images, etc. also rely on Payoneer’s mass payout services for payments.

If we compare it with PayPal, Payoneer charges less fees. For every $100 you transfer, you can save about $5 compared to PayPal.

How Payoneer Works?

Payoneer’s payment service provides you a personal collection account number, which allows you to receive payment via ACH transfers from the U.S companies. For EU companies, you can collect via SEPA transfers.

When you join Payoneer, you will receive a virtual U.S account where you can transfer your Amazon payment. From there, it gets transferred to your local bank account within 4 business days.

  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.

  3. Really useful content for me! However, I have a question, being from India, I am automatically directed to amazon.in Associate program (for affiliate marketing) and not amazon.com. But is there any way to apply to amazon.com 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?
