    I make a small money by Amazon affiliate. Since it is low ($20-40 monthly), I cannot receive it via Check. Amazon sends me gift certificates. How can I cash out these certificates?

    A common method is to sell it on ebay; but the problem is that scammers on ebay get the code and request charge back to paypal. Thus, it is not a safe way to do so. Do you know a safe way?

    You get the gift certificates in the mail. You put on ebay. You send with delivery confirmation. You'll have a tracking code as well as the value of the card based on the invoice Amazon affiliates gives you.

    Just dont use email as the mailing medium.

    Amazon sends codes electronically by email.

    Paypal is OK for me (but problematic due to charge back). But in general any kind of electronic currency is OK as transfer to my credit card.

    You can sell your Amazon giftcards to some sites like PlasticJungle I believe.

    Then can't you print it out and send it to the ebay buyer in the mail (with delivery confirmation)?

    Another option is to put an ad in your local "penny saver" type of publication, or use Craigslist (and tell the buyer that they have to come pick it up and pay cash).

    That's why you mail it instead of email.

    There are many sites that buy and sell these gift card.

    I used to push a poker site and would get paid with amazon gift cards back in the day. I just sold them on ebay
