Are you one of the Amazon U.S. affiliates who is struggling with receiving affiliate payments? Well, you are not alone as many others from various parts of the world are in the same situation as you.
If you are from countries like U.S., U.K, you can receive payment via payment methods such as direct bank deposits. If you are from countries like India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal, Sri Lanka, or other countries where direct deposit is not available, here I’m sharing the way to receive payment. This question was asked by one of our readers in the forum:
This method is tested & tried by me, so you can use it without any issue. For latecomers, you can read this guide & this one to learn about the Amazon affiliate program.
Receiving Amazon U.S. Affiliate commission using Payoneer:
I have talked a lot about Payoneer earlier & if you are not aware of Payoneer let me quickly explain it to you. Payoneer is a service like Paypal that can be used to send & receive payments. What is unique about them is, that Payoneer let you have a U.S. & Euro bank routing number that can be used to receive payment from various services.
In fact, in recent times they have partnered with many services & their reach is growing as we speak. You can read the below tutorials to learn more about Payoneer:

If you don’t have an account on Payoneer, you can create one using the link below. Do remember; that you will also get a bonus of $50 once you have made a transaction of $1000 using Payoneer. (Even if you receive an Affiliate commission via Amazon of $1000 or more, you will get $50 bonus money). Pretty cool, huh?
Once your account is activated or if you already have an active Payoneer account, log in to the Payoneer dashboard. Click on Global payment service & the next page you will get USD receiving account (ACH) information. This is what the page would look like:
Now login to your Amazon U.S. affiliate dashboard & click on account settings > Change Payment Method & here you need to enter the details of your U.S. account from Payoneer.
Select the option which says “Pay me by direct deposit (the United States Based Associates Only)” & enter the details. You can use the below screenshot for reference:
Click on Submit & that’s it. You need to ensure that you have filled out tax information which is mandatory to receive payment. I missed out on filling out tax information & my payment got delayed due to this. So, you don’t want to make the same mistake as me.
I hope this helps those who are earning money from the Amazon affiliate program & couldn’t find a way to receive money in their country.
