When it comes to receiving affiliates & advertising income from foreign countries, we often have limited options.
Especially if the only option is to receive payment via paper check. I’m sure you are aware of problems associated with that.
Major issues like undelivered mail delays the payment process significantly while companies need to reissue you a new check and then re-send it out to you. This is one problem most AdSense publishers used to face until Google recently introduced the EFT payment option.
Today’s post is regarding Commission Junction, which is one of the more popular affiliate marketplaces (along with Peerfly, ShareASale & Clickbank). Recently I configured my Commission Junction account to receive payment using the Payoneer service.
I have written about Payoneer here & here. It’s a free online service which will let you receive payment from foreign countries.
In this tutorial, I will show you how to configure your Commission Junction account to receive payment using Payoneer.
(If you are stuck anywhere in between, feel free to ask a question in the comment section below.)
Get your U.S.A. bank routing number from Payoneer:
Unlike PayPal, Payoneer offers unique ways to receive payment from foreign companies.
When you create a free account on Payoneer, you get a U.S.A. bank routing number & E.U. bank routing number. In this case, I have used my U.S.A. payment service information & companies can send payment to my U.S.A. bank routing number (which is powered by Payoneer).
From there, Payoneer transfers the money to my linked Indian bank account within 24 hours. The process is simple & once you have configured it, you will keep receiving payment without the need for manual intervention.
Here is what you need to do:
- Create a free account on Payoneer
- Login to your Payoneer dashboard & click on “US Payment Service”
- On the next page, you will find your “US Payment Service” information.
- This is what you need to fill out at the Commission Junction payment page to start receiving your CJ Affiliate commission.
Update Payment information at Commission Junction:
Now that you have gotten your “US Payment Service” information via Payoneer, open CJ.com in a new tab & login to your account.
Navigate to the Account > Administrative Settings tab to update your payment and/or tax information.
Refer to below screenshot & fill out the bank details which you have received from Payoneer:
For many countries including India, Australia, France, Singapore, Mexico & many others, Commission Junction offers a direct bank deposit option. You can find that list of countries here.
For many other countries like Pakistan, Nepal, Bangladesh, and Sri Lanka where direct bank deposit is not available, Payoneer works as an excellent way to receive payment without any issue.
