Are you an Amazon affiliate (US)? Are you living outside US or in India? Are you getting amazon affiliate payout checks after a month and paying $15 as a fee for that? Are you waiting for months to reach Amazon affiliate payment threshold of $ 100?
If your answer is yes, then you have landed in the right post.
I’m an Amazon affiliate (US) and making on an average of $10/ month. I can’t wait for 10 months to reach Amazon affiliate payment threshold of $100.
I was keenly looking for options to receive Amazon affiliate payments every month. Finally, I found the solution through Payoneer. I’ll give a walkthrough on how to set up payment.
I’ll also use Payoneer to receive Amazon Kindle Direct publish(KDP) royalty, Createspace royalty, Fiverr and much more.
Amazon affiliate payment methods
As Amazon affiliates, who are living outside us have only two options
If you opted for Amazon Gift card, they’ll send Gift card claim code to the given email address. You can use that amount to purchase products on Amazon.com. The minimum threshold to get Amazon Gift card is $10.
Amazon affiliates pay Check
Amazon affiliates get payout checks when their affiliate payment crossed $100. It’ll take one month to get the check and additional 5 days for processing check. Amazon charges $15 as processing fee for the check.
How to receive Amazon Affiliate Payments via Payoneer
Amazon affiliate payment can be transferred directly to the bank account only for US citizen. In other words, only those who have US bank account. Amazon affiliates who are not residing in the US cannot open US bank account. But still, we can get the payment through Payoneer.
Payoneer is a financial services company that provides online money transfer and digital payment services like Paypal.
Paypal uses your email address as ID to receive payments from overseas. But Payoneer creates the virtual bank account in various countries like US(United States), European Nations, UK, Japan, China, Australia and Canada.
