Are there any additional payment methods for non US citizens from Amazon?

    Pay me by Amazon.com gift certificate/card
    ($10.00 minimum earnings)

    Pay me by direct deposit ($10.00 minimum earnings)
    (Is this safe for international associates?)

    Pay me by check
    ($100.00 minimum earnings or choose your own threshold above the minimum.)


    These are my options amazon can pay me. I'm not an American so I can't recieve payments from them from the bank. Pay me by check charge you $15 for each check. Are there any other options to make amazon pay me?

    Maybe amazon's own payment system: amazon checkout. Did anyone try that?

    Thanks in advance.

    If you actually enter your international information, they will generally give you more info about payment.

    Last time I looked, they offer bank transfers to some international locations, and waive the check fee if you are in a location where they can't do a bank transfer. You still need to make at least $100 to get paid by check though.

    You can open a USA bank account ant they transfer your money there, the bank will provide you with a Debit card, so you can withdraw with the debit card via ATM, or pay with it on your country.

    You also can receive the money as a gift certificate and sell it using PayPal, of course you will have some loses with this method, but at least you can have it on PayPal in seconds.

    Thanks for the replies, this should solve my problem.

    Edit: If I would be an associate of amazon.co.uk, can I still get commissions from US visitors buying stuff?
