Are you one of the Amazon U.S. affiliate who is struggling with receiving affiliate payment? Well, you are not alone as many others from various part of the world are in the same situation as you.
How do you get paid by Amazon if you are a non-US associate or seller? Is there a way to receive affiliate payment from Amazon when you’re living outside of the US? Other than the ones already available, is there any other payment method for Amazon associates or sellers residing outside US?
These are some frequently asked questions I’ve received recently. Currently, Amazon associates and sellers in the US use two ways to get paid- via cheque or wire transfer to US Bank account. However, not everyone has a US bank account. If you want a fast and reliable service, Payoneer is a recommended payment method for Amazon associates and sellers. Payoneer offers quick cash withdrawal through its MasterCard service.
Though it’s a relatively new service, it is already becoming a popular method used by Non-US sellers and affiliates to withdraw earnings from Amazon. China, UK, Germany, Spain, Mexico, India are some of the countries where Non-US Amazon sellers and affiliates frequently use the Payoneer MasterCard.
US citizens who are currently living in a different country can also use the Payoneer MasterCard to directly receive Amazon payments and withdraw it locally via any ATM with the MasterCard logo. Read below to find out how to withdraw payments from Amazon using Payoneer MasterCard:
Receiving Amazon U.S. Affiliate commission using Payoneer:
I have talked a lot about Payoneer earlier & if you are not aware of Payoneer let me quickly explain it for you. Payoneer is a service like Paypal that can be used to send & receive payment. What unique about them is, Payoneer let you have a U.S. & Euro bank routing number that can be used to receive payment from various services.
If you don’t have an account on Payoneer, you can create one using the link below. Do remember; you will also get a bonus of $25 once you have made a transaction of $100 using Payoneer. (Even if you receive Affiliate commission via Amazon of $100 or more, you will get $25 bonus money). Pretty cool, huh?
Once your account is activated or if you already have an active Payoneer account, login to the Payoneer dashboard. Click on Global payment service & the next page you will get USD receiving account (ACH) information. This is how the page would look like:
Now login to your Amazon U.S. affiliate dashboard & click on account settings > Change Payment Method & here you need to enter the details of your U.S. account from Payoneer.
Select the option which says “Pay me by direct deposit (United States Based Associates Only)” & enter the details. You can use below screenshot for the reference:
Click on Submit & that’s it. You need to ensure that you have filled out tax information which is mandatory to receive payment. I missed out on filling tax information & my payment got delayed due to this. So, you don’t want to make the same mistake as me.
I hope this helps those who are earning money from Amazon affiliate program & couldn’t find a way to receive money in their country.
