Happy New Year everyone! I celebrate with another step forward!

Yesterday, I got my first check from Amazon on over $1000! I'm so happy to see some physical evidence that everything I have worked for actually works. These are affiliate commisions. I'm not selling any products.

I was a bit concerned that the check would get lost in the mail or take forever to reach my address in Norway, but it took under a week.

Now I have to go to the bank and claim it, and start thinking on opening my one-man company again called 'Enkeltmannsforetak' so the Norwegian tax authority will be happy.

This check does not even reflect the amazing Christmas sales I wrote about in the last blog post, so there will be more Amazon checks coming along shortly. :)

When that is said, I hope Amazon will implement Paypal soon since the check method is a bit outdated in my opinion and difficult to handle. My primary bank doesn't even handle checks anymore so I have to open an account in another bank just for my affiliate checks.

Here is the proof. :) Have a nice day.

Nice success story and good to know there are more Norwegian WA'ers here... Not that I am Norwegian..but I live in Norway, that was my side of the story hehe. Means I can also get this type of checks.. and have to find a bank to get them credited.

Hi! Amazon has your address if you have updated it in your 'Account Settings'. Go to 'Change your contact information' on the right side under 'Payment and Tax Information'.

Also double check your 'Your Payment Method' that it is set to Check. I have set the 'Minimum payment threshold' to $2000 since it is quite costly to raise a check in Norway. In addition Amazon take $15 for processing checks....

I hope they turn to other solutions like PayPal soon.
