I know for people who reside in the US the rule is in place because of something related to taxes. How does this affect me, as a person who doesn't live in the US? Do I just get sent my money and I'll deal with the tax men of my country on my own? Another question: Are there networks that do not accept international affiliates? I'd like to avoid them as much as possible, so as not to waste my time. In the stickies in this forum people were asking how to get in networks that operate out of the US, but they seemed to be mostly afraid of the phonecall. Another issue regarding the phonecall seemed to be that it will come during the night. I can speak English just fine and I don't really see why anybody should be afraid of someone calling from the CPA company. Also, as for the late night phonecall... it is your chance to earn yourself a living. Wake up and when you're done, go back to sleep. The only issue that I see is the resulting phone bill. Another one: How long does it take to get a response from a CPA company? I've applied to BLAM Ads, their applications are on hold. And CPA Infinity, haven't heard back from them yet.
