    check out the us virtual po box addresses to establish a us presense. maybe a virtual CC as well? just thoughts
     
  4. I get my check forwarded using 3rd party services. But I'm not from India. It just cost $5 something. Will get the check in 2-3 weeks after delivery in USA. But in order to forward from USA to other country all the service companies ask you to provide hell out of documentation.

    But you gotta remember ur check will be in US dollars, which means it takes 30-45 days to cash out into local currency.

    Once you set up everything ,its pretty easy. I have been doing it since 2 years. Pm me your skype/yahoo IM for more details.

    You can set up a US bank account and enable ACH payments on CJ.Your payments will be directly deposted into your US Bank account !

    But what about Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN),US affiliates must enter their Tax ID to receive payments,We can't get Tax ID!

    Hi, You can signup payoneer partner company and you will get a master card and a USA virtual bank account with ACH support, you can withdrawals founds thought your master card anywhere from the world if the teller machine support master card.
     
  8. You need TIN or SSN.

    If you make more than $600/ year CJ or any company paying you should report to IRS. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

    That sounds correct, you need a presense outside of the US to avoid paying US taxes. Its a catch 22 situation setup in the US and pay US taxes setup outside of the US and avoid US taxes however your sucess rate signing up with various affiliate programs is not good.

    I would work on a better way to presuade affiliate programs that you are the real deal and its worth it having you with them. Perhaps provide some examples of your quality sites and the amount of traffic you get. I always say eventhough I am not based in the US my sites are based in the US (my servers) and my sites target a US audience.

    After this I normally don't have any problems signing up with any affiliate program.
