    If you have European associate account, you can only target European visitors. If you want to target countries like US, India, etc.., then you need to have appropriate associate accounts.

    If I have a U.S. Associates account, will there be a problem with payments from USA > Europe?

    No, use Payoneer for that, you get payments straight to your Mastercard

    I've always been too lazy to create a payoneer account. What about PayPal? Do they do that?

    Your only option is Payoneer if you wanna get your money to your card, only US associates can use PP (if I remember correctly)

    You mean the "Payoneer Prepaid MasterCard", right?

    Payoneer has fees etc. If you don't mind the wait, they will send you a check to a UK address for free when you hit $100 dollars.
