Is it worthwhile to sign up to AC as non-US submitter?

    I know you get upfront payment as a US resident signup- but with a $600 limit.

    But as a EU resident:

    Would it be better to sign up as EU resident even if we won't get upfront payment?

    ...Cos then there is no limit problems... and everything is 'clean'.

    Eventually we all get paid in the end... right?

    I suppose my question is...

    Do we get the same dosh even if we are paid later?

    Anyone from EU with AC experience signed up under EU address got a comment?

    Thank you in advance.
    (Yes, I downloaded AC Cracked PDF... Thanks)

    Are you sure that you can make more than 600$ without w-9 form, even if you are eu? There is a thread where sb aksed this question.

    I've been scratching my head about this...

    I don't mind having to submit form... as long as I still get paid in the end.

    But with a false US ID and address my limit will also will be $600, unless I keep changing emails and accounts... that just too much hard work.

    The more I think about... it's not in one's interest to register as a US resident.

    I suppose the "only" advantage of US account is to get upfront cash...

    yup, that's exactly what i've been thinking. i'm not interested in making several accounts to get upfront payments (which seem to be low and need 2 weeks to be processed atm, as it seems) and maybe getting banned and losing money and work in the process.

    now AC states in the FAQ that non-US citizens are eligible for performance payments, but they only mention the W-9 for US, nothing for EU for example.

    BUT...they at least have a forum
    http://forum.associatedcontent.com/forum.shtml?thread=27978
    http://forum.associatedcontent.com/forum.shtml?thread=27998

    now those 2 threads also don't really answer the original question, but better than nothing. i'll shoot AC an email about this whole issue asap and report back if i get an answer.

    I am in the same situation. For me performance based payments don't really pay off. I'd rather use the articles to promote adsense websites then.

    AC might also introduce a phone verification system in the near future, so upfront payments might soon become out of question.

    I personally think that performance payment is worthwhile as AC isn't as strict on its article acceptance when you apply for performance payment only. Also, you can check out Danny Relic's performance inflator. It is free for download. Just make a search for "danny relic" and you'll be able to find it.

    I think the same way. Changing emails and accounts is not that hard. The thing you have to take extra attention is about covering the tracks. I think some people only change their IP and clear the cookies and think that's alright, and forget about disabling Java (not Java Script), cleaning flash cookies, making use of high anonymous private proxies, user agent... making this way you'll never get caught.:D

    No, there are sites that pay you $4 for 1000 views, and it doesn't even have to be unique content.

    If I am not in US, but I registered as US., can I still get paid?

    And how many articles can I submit per day?
