If you’re an African freelancer working with the Amazon Associates program, you’ve probably thought about how to receive your payments directly into your bank account.
Previously, you could only get paid via an Amazon gift card. However, thanks to the recent international direct deposit option, you can now get the actual money.

Getting your freelance payments from Amazon shouldn’t be tough. With a Grey account, you can receive money from anywhere in the world and swap it to your local currency.
