    If you have any specific bank name? So far, I only know Barclay, but they do not accept Amazon affiliate payments

    DO you actually do any research yourself??? What's up with having to spoonfeed everybody here! Just use google for crying out loud... It'll take you 2 minutes at most

    I have done research on this over 3 month,but can not find any good fit. That's why I ask any one have direct experience or recommendation. This forum is for people to ask, to discuss, to share efficiently. Personal experience or recommendation is more valuable than those public information in google or library.

    IF you know, just help; if you do not know, just ignore.

    If you've really been searching for 3 months (which I highly doubt btw) you would have found one by now... simply typing "offshore bank europe" into google and contacting those per email with your needs takes you ONE day plus a few days until they've all replied.

    The only problem you'll have in Europe is that they're mostly not anonymous which defeats the offshore angle and those that have a certain anonymity have 50k+ minimum deposit.

    Oh and BTW, next to no one will talk about which one they use... a fact that SHOULD be obvious to you.

    You could just look for banks in those countries, no need to add offshore to your search. Many banks will allow non residents to get a bank account if you fax in a copy of your passport,id etc.

    Yeap, they just care about money and commissions. As far as you send them money and make them win more commissions from you they don't care where are you from or where do you live :D

    Not all banks have fees just for having a bank account, most make their money from their financial service departments,loans and from overdraft penalties.

    I cannot say that this is not correct since I haven´t dealt with that many banks (I have had accounts in 9 banks in 4 countries, three of which in Europe + I have done investigation about a handful of other banks in both sides of Atlantic), but I haven´t yet come across with a single bank that would allow the opening of a bank account just with a faxed copy of an ID.

    Most European banks that I know, either require a local address (or that at least you show up in the office to open the account) or a significant sum as the first deposit (Barclay in UK for example 5.000GBP if I recall correct).

    If they don´t require your presence nor a big first deposit, at least legalized/notarized copies of your ID + documentation which must arrive with preferably courier or a normal post.

    If you need a European bank without residency, I suppose I could recommend UK for you, other countries where I´m familiar with a few banks are Germany and Austria, and I think in all these countries they want you to be there or at least show up in the office to open the account. They also want to know what´s the purpose of the account.

    I own a company located in Belize with bank accounts in Cyprus (Hellenic Bank). IBAN, e-banking, everything available.
    Maybe i could borrow you an account or we could do something together.
    PM me with details if you are interessted.

    It won't be possible to open a bank account without providing a local address/passport, initial deposit and so on...
    Took me about half a year and a lot of money to have accounts who are not associated with my name.

    Its hard finding an offshore bank account that fits your exact needs. With the help of a lawyer or registered agent in the desired country, it can be very simple. Are you located in the states? Why do you want a EU bank account for Amazon may I ask?
