    Hi guys, I got a question about Amazon.

    First off all, you can't get paid with Paypal, which is not a huge problem, except that I'm from Europe. There's no way of getting paid in Bank Checks either, because my bank is not in the USA. So the only option is gift cards. Which is ridiculous, cause I don't want $x,xxx worth of gift cards :D. So is there any other way I can get it.

    Or is there any other site like Amazon which does this too (put ad on your site, and if a product sells, you get up to 15%)? I'm not sure, but Ebay? Ebay accepts Paypal though.

    Anyway, thanks for your time and your answer :)

    Not so mate... you can get paid by check in Europe, no fee either. It's a little confusing when you setup your payment method, but just choose "Check" and make sure your address is correct.

    The major pain with Amazon (whatever the payment method) is the 3 month delay on payments. I've only just got my commission check through for January.

    You can get paid by check but your bank will most likely tell you the check needs to be sent away for "collection" which takes 3-6 weeks, so a net60 payment plus 30 days or more to get month #1s money in your hand. You can get rid of the gift cards faster imo, sell on ebay, ship from amazon or get someone to buy it from you for almost the exact amount.

    I was going to recommend using your amazon gift cards to buy American Express giftcards on the amazon site... but... I just checked and it re-directs to the external AMEX site where you can't use any amazon gift cards as a payment option... crrraappp
