    I'm thinking of trying out affiliate marketing and heard much success from using Amazon but looking at their payment methods it just doesn't seem good for people outside of the US.

    Anyone uses it and can you tell me how long checks usually arrive to you since direct deposit is not given as an option to me.

    I was thinking of trying EBay as an alternative however, I feel there's no products really for the blog niche I'm thinking of starting.

    That's reasonable but you're in Europe... So it's definitely different for every country

    Am outside the US. And I use amazon affiliate. The best and fastest way to get your payment is through payoneer. You get paid and you can either send your money to your local bank account or use Payoneer card to withdraw from any ATM.

    Going through the check route is a waste of time, and in my case, sometimes the checks got stolen and cashed. (It is 100% possible)

    Payoneer user here. Get my monies instantly. My postal service sucks and would take ~3 weeks to get to me, as another member stated, the check can get lost in someone's pocket. I've got mail opened before, bills but they didn't payed them...

    You'll have to pay for $29.95 for the annual fee. But they'll deduct once your account has sufficient money in it. Also do take note that payoneer takes 1% for every transaction. Minimum withdrawal to bank account will be $200. Hope that helps! :)

    What's the niche you're considering? Seems like eBay and Amazon are pretty comparable as far as types of products.
