Many people dream to make a living through writing and Medium is the best platform they might ever know. Me too! I have to dream to write here and get money by joining Medium Partnership Program. I have just need a valid Stripe account to get it done but I cannot get Stripe valid because it does not support my country. I lost the motivation to write in English, my secondary language, then I give up and keep writing on my own tongue.
Last week, I dealt with a freelancer to develop an application for me and found a platform called — Payoneer.
This platform is allowed you to get your own US bank account wherever you live. Then, the way starts here and I want to share it with you.
Follow these steps:
- Sign Up for Payoneer (to get US bank account)
- Get EIN from IRS (download the form)
- Get US Mailing Address (from MailBox Forwarding)
- Get US Phone Number (from Sonetel)
- Sign Up at Stripe
- Update Your Stripe Account
- Get VPN, use the US or Canada proxy
- Join Medium Partner Program
- Connect Medium to Stripe
- Submit your tax form
I have read a blog, he said we need to signup for Payoneer Prepaid MasterCard and activate it to get a US bank account but it’s not true. You can signup for Payoneer in the normal way and get a US bank account instantly after you join.
For EIN is a bit complicated. You can download the form and call IRS by yourself but hire a freelance, such as Fiverr, to do this for you is a more comfortable way. It’s only $15 — $17.75 in total and I chose the latter choice.
For US mailing address and phone number, you can use other services if you don’t like what I suggest. When you get the required information, you can join the Medium partnership Program and start your dream in less than 10 minutes.
Enjoy your writing!
