I need to get money out of the amazon associates program. I can only send money to a US bank account.
1.) to protect against this being a hacked amazon account, how would the recipient be able to tell that you truly are the owner of this account?
2.) amazon collects a social security number for the account and at the end of the year will will send a 1099 reporting the total paid. how did you get around having to enter a ssn?
1.) the links on bitcoinx.com / my reputation here on the forum
2.) I live in Europe/Germany and it is possible to enter that as a country on the amazon pages. They did not ask me for a social security number. The bank information is separate from the contact information.
Maybe I should add that I it would be possible for me to get the money by cheque (no fee on amazon side because outside US) but I want to avoid the hassle. It is kinda hard and expensive to get something useful for a US cheque here.
