    Default How do other affiliates or US based affiliates get paid?

    "Hey GPWAers


    I've run into a little problem.. and its a great problem - but still a problem. I have earnings building up with programs who are unable to pay me, because of my location.


    How do other affiliates or US based affiliates get paid? Would love some help in sorting it to, because I'd like to get my payments sorted out ASAP.


    PM is fine if you wish to remain anonymous to everyone on how you get paid.


    Thanks

    Its a big problem, and I can understand the companies policy that are operating without a license, you'll have to fine alternative person (a friend or vendor) which is located on the UK
    it's the best solution !

    Good Luck

    The following assumes that you are claiming your affiliate earnings as income, that you have a credit card, and that you have an account with a local bank.

    In order of preference (for me, anyway):

    1. Ask if they can issue a credit to your credit card. Yes, there are some programs that can do this.

    2. Ask if they can pay to PaySpark: If you do not have a PaySpark account, some affiliate program can help you get an account; I honestly do not recall how I got mine.

    3. Have them send you a check.
    -- Often there will be a fee, up to $50, charged by the affiliate program. If so, have them carry-over your earnings until the check fee is an acceptable percentage of your earnings. I use 10%, e.g. if the program's minimum payment is $100 but has a check fee of $30, I ask them to hold my earnings until I reach $300 and only then do I have them send me a check.
    -- Often the check will be drawn on a non-US bank; if so, in my experience it is best to deposit directly with a teller rather than through an ATM.

    4. Have them send you a bank wire directly into your bank account (if they can wire into a US bank account, of course)
    -- Check with your bank to ensure that your account can accept an international bank wire. If so, ask about fees (my bank charges $15) and ask for the relevant bank addresses, account numbers, routing numbers, etc.
    -- The affiliate program may also charge a fee. As above, ask the affiliate program to carry-over earnings until it makes sense to get paid.
    -- Ask the affiliate program to reimburse you for the bank fee. It can't hurt to ask.

    5. WesternUnion or MoneyGram: The fees are often outrageous, and it is a PITA, but sometimes this is your only option.

    6. Ask if the affiliate program can pay into an account (either an actual bank account, or an eWallet) that is not in your name and that is not based in the US. If so, find a fellow GPWA member that has such an account, would be willing to accept the payment, and have them send you a PayPal payment. Be sure to offer at least a token amount for their cooperation; when I have done this (thrice in 8 years), I gave $25.

    Hope this helps!

    I didn't know many offered the credit card option.

    Wire and check seems to be the most common methods.

    The WU or MG is an ok enough option when the other two do not work.

    Payspark is predominantly for MGS properties, and a number of them will certainly help you get an account if needed. The trouble with payspark is they have a quota and close your account if it is not used frequently, so that is always MY last choice.

    For myself, I only have 1 program where I struggle to get paid. Wires seem to be the best and most programs use them. Western Union is an option but be careful how much is being sent to you and how many different programs are using that method. You can get blackballed and not be able to receive payments them. Checks are also available from some programs.

    Like I say I have 1 program where it is a problem. You shouldn't have many accounts that do not have a way to pay you. I have been doing this for a few years now and have always found a way to get paid.

    If you are able to set up a local bank account to receive funds or use the account of a local colleague you could use a service like Transferwise.com to send the Euros/Pounds/Whatever to your own regular US bank account for a fraction of the cost that banks charge for a similar transaction.

    Transferwise was set up by some guys who helped build Skype and paypal and I've been using them for around three years for transfer my mortgage payments from Gibraltar to Spain, each time costing me around 7 instead of 70 so the savings can be significant.

    This may not be an option for all cases but it might be useful to some of you in this position.

    We pay our US affiliates by check or wire (to personal accounts only). We can also pay it into a player account where you can get paid out back to a credit card if preferred.

    Hi Guys,

    Thanks for the help. unfortunately this affiliate program use to send me wires, up until the last few months. I made other suggestions, like the ones already posted. check, paypal WU ect.... and was told no. this is the reply I Received from my AM.

    Hi,

    Thank you for contacting me about this.


    My Manager, Mr. XXXX, has tried to contact you several times regarding your payment method but without any success.
    The reason why you have not been payed is the fact that we are no longer able to send any kinds of payments to USA. xxxxx wanted to speak with you about this, so you can find an alternative solution (out of the USA) in order for us to be able to keep paying your commission.

    Please be kind and send us any feedback on this with an alternative non USA payment method, as we would like your process your commission ASAP.


    Other US affiliates have provided us with an offshore account on their name or a friend's name or Skrill, Neteller, Ecocard, Click2Pay account, same, opened on a friend's name which is not from the US. Unfortunately we can not pay through Paypal and these are the available options we have.

    Would be great if you could find an alternative solution for this so we can proceed with your payment.


    so, Basically the only option is to send the money to someone that's not in the US and hope their honest enough to send it to me.

    If US affiliates are allowed to promote the casino brands, then they should find another way to pay me. am I asking to much?

    Its been a couple years since I did this but I have had payments sent this way.
    If you have a ps card you already have an offshore account capable of accepting wires in gbp or euros.
    First you decide on what currency you want the payment sent in, ie.. euros or gbp. Sometimes the program only offers 1 choice.

    Then you ask ps to send you the wire details. Note that sometimes the ps rep assumes you're wiring from the usa to your ps bank account so you need to explain where its originating from.

    The wire instructions are somewhat complicated having to travel through intermediate bank(s) but as long as the sender adds the final credit info it does get there.

    Then you send the details to you AM and have them ask payments if they can send it this way.

    I think the program should be named so that US Affiliates can make an informed decision as to whether they want to promote a group that has no intention of paying affiliates in the US through normal procedures.

    I was just going to ask the same thing. Who are we talking about here so that if other US affiliates sign up they know what they are getting themselves into.

    Just letting everyone know that this doesn't relate to us.

    AffiliateEdge.com pay via check and wire should you be looking for a US program and you're based in the US.

    Setting up foreign banking isn't terribly difficult if one can go on an extended vacation, rent a house for a month or two, and "establish a foreign residence." Then you can get paid in another country and just ACH or wire yourself your money.

    Some casino affiliate programs offer commission payment via Paypal.
    Is Paypal commission only available to UK or EU countries ? or worldwide ?

    I dont see how this will happen soon... but "if" Paypal will be open to the us online gambling it'll be with lots of limitations and restrictions.
    Also your personal data will probably be exposed to the authorities...

    I agree. It will be heavily restricted and I sincerely doubt that any of the offshore, lightly regulated, not regulated, or not regulated in the USA sites will be able to send gaming funds to affiliate marketers...

    Here are my 2 cents.

    IF paypal opens up to gaming in the US, it will only be with the licensed operators.

    Paypal is currently available in licensed jurisdictions. UK, IE, DK. I realise IE is not licensed but they have included it as part of the UK for some reason.
    There are some funny rules, for example your paypal account must have a UK registered credit card on it if you're in the UK. If it has a CC from a different country, it will not allow you to use the account.

    It's strange, but I guess they have their reasons.
