My self have experienced with chitika a few years ago when I still blogging on blogspot platform and yeah! I was still newbie in blogging stuff at the time and I’ve got a lot of lesson from Chitika actually.
Yesterday I’ve got an e-mail from chitika that said “Chitika Now Supports Payout to 200 Countries.”
Hmm! That was good news! but also I got a “bad news” that Chitika will no longer support payment with PayPal, Due to multiple problems with Paypal payments (including international regulations), they said. They have confirm and decided to migrate to Payoneer as the only payment option.
The good news is Payoneer is supported in 200 countries around the globe in 150 currencies. If Payoneer is not an option for you (for whatever reason), unfortunately you will not be able to use Chitika to monetize your websites. They’ve said.
I think it’s fair enough, so guys if are now want to work with Chitika you have to setup a Payoneer account if you don’t have one.
