    I noticed that many CPA networks have a bank wire option. I've got a bank account, and this would be extremely convenient.

    Is it safe to do this?

    If so, what bank info can I give out safely?

    Thank you!

    Yes, its generally pretty safe... try and have a bit of info as to who you are dealing with though. Don't just freely give your info out.

    kk, what could happen if the info falls into the wrong hands?

    And what info would they need?

    What info should I give out to someone legit?

    Well.. im not sure what your doing, but for the most part if you are with a large affiliate network or affiliate program you are safe as they put a lot of effort into protecting that sort of information. Obviously if you don't know the people and nobody has ever heard of them you probably want to be quite careful. What exactly they can do with your info im not sure... but I wouldn't wan't to find out.

    If its an online account and if the username and pass falls into wrong hands u can be in trouble. Try to take a look at the CPAs reputation, u can take a look at their alexa rank and cubestate.com statistics to figure out how well are they doing if u cant get any recomendations from ur friends about that CPA.

    Its normally 99.99% safe to deal with a well reputed CPA, they might not pay you but they wont do anything with ur bank account.

    Definitely don't give your info out to any small time or "underdeveloped" CPA's. If they're established and have been around for a while you should be alright.

    You'll have to give them your full bank account info as well as the info about who you are (name, address, SSN, tax info., etc.).
