I have an Amazon Affiliate account, thier methods of payment are cheque, direct deposit, or Amazon gift card. Cheque is not an option because the country where I am, the mail is unreliable the cheque will get lost or stolen. For direct deposit, you need a larger balance, and there might be problems sending to my bank, I am in a developing nation. Third option is this Amazon gift card, what exactly is it ? Can I use it like a debit card (virtual credit card) and buy things online at other places besides Amazon ? Is it possible to transfer the money to another virtual credit card or paypal or something ? Is this an actual physical card, does it need to get sent through the mail ? Silly questions, but I am clueless about these things.
