Can i signup for the hubpages earning program without a paypal account

    Paypal is not allowed in my country of origin and because of this, i can neither register nor use Paypal.
    Consequently, i am restricted to using adsense alone on my hubs.

    There are very nice products from Amazon i would like to showcase to my hub readers but i can't because i don't have a Paypal account.

    I think hubpages should be constructed in a way that it should allow everyone from every nation to sell their expertise to the world rather than favoring some people and demoting others.

    If there's any possible solution to this problem, please let me know or i would suggest that hubpages should start using bitcoin as a payment system.

    Many other large companies like fiverr have already started using bitcoins, why not hubpages.com?

    Any possible solutions to this my problem will be gladly welcome.

      I saw a very recent post by HP that there are no plans to change their current payment system. Fortunately, you've got the AdSense thing going. As for Amazon, you can do that exclusive of the HP ad program. So the https://affiliate-program.amazon.com/gp … help/t3/a2 options are available.

        Do you mean that i can still use amazon affiliate products on my hubs without signing up for the hubpages earning Program. If yes, please how do i go about it?

          Go to Amazon and sign up as an affiliate. 

          Go to the earnings section of HP and configure the Amazon affiliation you just signed up for.  Do not sign up for the HP earnings program.  Instructions are in the learning center.

            Oops! It seems the current requirement for using amazon affiliate program on any hub include signing up for the HP earnings program! Am trapped at the moment.

              The menu structure to get there is indeed a little convoluted. Try https://hubpages.com/my/earnings/affiliate/amazon

                I think that will help. Let me try it out.

      I always thought that it wasn't compulsory to use pay pal.  This is worth knowing.

    If you have any friend living outside your country you can use his paypal account.

      I have been using this strategy to collect payment from ads on my site but this time around, HP requires that i log into my own Paypal account and prove that it's capable of receiving payments.

    You can use your own (new) Amazon affiliate account for your hubs.
