@jtdoesit: well, this is not a poll about who gets the most votes win.
Hi guys, I want to start trying Amazon Affiliate but I'm just wondering how can I get my earnings? I'm from the Philippines and is it easy to receive the payment? Thanks guys! Nice info here!
Be careful, amazon prohibits direct deposit outside US and ban accounts with such payments option
http://community.payoneer.com/index.php?/topic/3772-amazon-international-affiliates/#entry16369Payoneer set you up with US based bank account for the deposit to go to, then you just use payoneer credit card to withdraw the money in your home country. Saves a fortune on bank charges, especially here in Spain.
I apologize for any misunderstanding. In order to qualify for the direct deposit of your Associates earnings, all three of the following conditions must be met:
1) your payee address must be in the United States
2) your bank must be a United States Financial Institution
3) you must have a U.S. tax ID number or a Social Security number.
Have you tried ugly long form sales letter? Design has to support content, not the other way around.
And oh, what is this ugly website
It's in 500th most popular sites on earth.
Don't get me wrong. I don't mean you should overlook design and skip that. No but you can start with ugly. Then when your site performs, launch a new design. Tidy it a bit.
Launch fast. Launch a bunch (or whatever tasks more important). Then based on your results, adjust.
I don't care losing some customers at first, but I'll save hours and hours by not wasting time on design.
Ideally I wish I have the resources to be like Basecamp.com. Their pages always look very attractive, even they try to push visitors to sign up immediately. From time to time they test new layouts but still very eye pleasing but remember for every beautiful site, there are ugly sites that work out there.
Direct response marketer will argue about how a simple post card works better than beautiful post card. In the former, people actually look at the message instead of just glimpse on it and spend more time on the beautiful post card pictures.
That's why I have friends who still use XSitePro. Looks like websites from 90ish, but due to speed, they rank very well and make money. One reason is because of speed. Google puts a lot of weight on that nowadays, so chuck out those beautiful and bloated jQuery, if possible.
Guess I made my point.
Again i don't say there's an absolute truth in this. Just the way I operate. It works in my info business. And it will work in affiliate marketing too. I guess we can just agree to disagree.
do you think this theme design is good enough for trusted amazon site
Amazon hasn't updated yesterday's (May 30) affiliate stats?
The way Payoneer works is this:
We provide you with a prepaid debit MasterCard, that has an associated US account/routing number. You provide Amazon with this number, so they can pay you via US direct deposit. The payments sent by Amazon generally take 1-3 business days to arrive, after which they are funded to your Payoneer card.
You can then use the card to make purchases online, in stores, and at ATMs worldwide.
