    I consider joining the Amazon affiliate program, but first I would need to know what payment methods to they offer? Do they offer direct deposit or they send checks?
    SEMrush
    What are the payment methods available for me if I'm outside of the US?

    yep, just choose payment by check and raise the limit to minimum $200 per check so the bank fee won't eat up your comission.
    my bank cut $30 to clear a check from amazon :(

    What is the concept of raising the minimum limit to $200 per check. Doesn't the bank charge anything on that limit?

    by having 1 check in the amount of $200 instead of 2 checks with $100 each, i will save $30. cause no matter what amount, the bank will charge $30 per check. got it?

    Yup, I got it, then you should always encash the check with the highest amount, to save as much money as you can. But don't you think that $30 is too much for a check?

    $30 is way too much. Different banks have different ways of charging. I am in the UK and have opened a US Dollar account with Citibank - no fees on this one.
