Hey guys,

I would like to start promoting Amazon products, but unfortunately they don't do direct deposits to people outside of the US. The only thing they offer is credit to buy Amazon products but I am not interested in that.

Does anyone here found a way to receive payments from Amazon when living outside of the US? Something like a Bank account in the US, or any kind of "trick" to get paid?

For an example, Clickbank doesn't make direct deposits to Portugal and the checks were too complicated to deposit, plus a lot of money was deducted in the operation. So I found a nice solution: I opened a bank account in Spain because is one of the countries of their list, so now I get direct deposits to my Bank account in Spain. Then I just have to transfer to my Bank in Portugal or withdraw from any ATM. And it's all legal, no problem in that.

So there must be a way to receive direct deposits from Amazon too! Let me know you thoughts about that please, there's always a way!!

Amazon affiliation is available in Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, Spain and the United Kingdom as well as the USA. You have to register for an account with each one that you wish to earn with https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/using-the-amazon-link-localizer Rich.

Yes, but can I receive the money in my bank account? Or do I need to have at least a spanish account so I can get paid?

Yes, you can be paid either by wire transfer or by cheque depending on the threshold level. Rich.

Hello Pedro. I'm also from Portugal. Can you help me through the steps to be an Amazon affiliate and earn a commission from Portugal? I have family in Brasil, so I think I can receive the commissions there.

Thank you in advance for any help that you can provide me!

Here, here! I've tried to launch some eBooks on iBook in the past but because I live in Australia it was all too hard because of the tax issues (US). It shouldn't be that hard!

I hope someone can answer your question because it makes WA (somewhat) a waste of time if we live outside the US and want to promote products via Amazon - but can't because we live outside the USA. I pray we're wrong, but can anyone spread more light on this for we people living outside the US. Thanks.

I am thinking of the same question too, but can amazon send check to countries outside US?

Yes Amazon do send cheques. I get mine sent to Australia, but the banks here take a fee for converting the money to AUD.

How High are such fees?
