    Man when I get a check from an affiliate company that pay only by checks they take like 45 days to clear in Malta, is their another way I could cash these checks so they wont take so long ?

    Speak to your AM, most networks allow you to switch to Paypal.

    Guess your right, but I don't really trust paypal that much, I think bank transfer is a better idea right ?

    I gave up on bank transfers in the end. I had 1 affiliate network say that they had sent the money twice, 100% they had the correct details, never got the payment and they told me that they had sent it and didn't have the money anymore. That was the first time I tried a transfer and put me off it for good, Paypal is easy for me, hate them but just make life a lot easier.

    I use paypal all the time, some people get screwed over by it, but as long as your account is verified and you dont do fishy shit its all good

    Moneygram does instant check cashing, but they take 4%. Actually, I tried two Moneygram offices, in one they do, no questions asked, in the other they give me the 25 working days bullshit.

    If you have a good relationship with your bank tell them to do "direct debit" when putting your checks on your bank account. Shouldn't be a problem for them.

    If you have someone that you trust in the USA, there is a way that you can do it, using the services of a check-cashing company...even if it's a company check, they will cash it, but it can take up to 7 days still, if it's out of state, etc...the thing is, check cashing stores are nasty businesses, they'll bend the rules whenever there's profit in it...

    Don't they charge 4% as well? Moneygram seems a better option to me then.
