    As a US consumer, the answer is probably not, with the possible exception of a digital product.

    Most US consumers would probably prefer to shop in the US to avoid addition shipping costs as well as delays in shipment due to distance and customs. Support and returns would also be potentially more complex due to the difference in time zones.

    So unless you're promoting a product to US consumers that isn't available any other way, it's not likely that you'll get many sales.

    I just hope someday webgains would give wire transfer payment option for international affiliate ... yeah right now i use paypal . but what if paypal limited my account like when I use paypal in ebay transaction ...

    webgain have usa merchant ,
    I think I believe webgains reputation in regard to payment and tracking , the only problem is wire transfer payment option, cause i have no access to direct deposit

    We're glad you like our interface, thanks for the kind words!

    We can do international wire transfer for you but it comes at a cost to the affiliate - usually $20-30 per wire depending on the banks. It's probably better to use what we currently offer because we absorb the costs. We will also consolidate our international payment systems in the future to add some more choices but not in the pipeline for this year.
