The affiliate marketing industry in the Philippines is still in its infancy. This is understandable since Filipinos are still very wary about purchasing goods online. With that said, local businesses are also wary about taking their wares online. And nobody can blame them. Why take your goods online if there isn't a market for it? It's simple logic. However, with the continuing developments in technology and as more Filipinos get connected to the web, this rather dull online business situation will surely change for the better. Local businesses are now seeing the potential of the internet as a source of additional customers. And when they do decide to take their products online, expect some of them to offer affiliate programs which will allow third parties to promote their products and earn commissions on the process.
It will just be a matter of time before Filipinos will fully embrace this web-based business culture. In the mean time, while you wait for this to happen, don't forget that the global affiliate marketing industry is as robust as ever. This is why I've created this small guide. In this affiliate marketing guide, I aim to show you how I earn from affiliate marketing. I wrote this guide with fellow Filipinos in mind since affiliate marketing here in the Philippines can be different from affiliate marketing in other countries. There are barriers or perks here that you won't encounter if you are based in another country. For example, some big affiliate marketing companies don't accept affiliates from the Philippines. Another example is that getting paid here as an affiliate can be very complicated since some affiliate companies have payment systems that can't just be applied in the Philippines.
In this guide, I'm going to only show you the things that worked for me. I'm not going to mention a strategy or tool, or resource if I hadn't tried it myself. Also, I'm going to assume that you are a total newbie in affiliate marketing. So if you already know the basics, you can skip to the latter parts of this guide. Anyway, here we go.

Are gift cards convertible to cash?
Hi! is there a charge when accepting payments via gift cards? How long it will take to reach in the Philippines?
@Magz: Yes, affiliates from the Philippines are accepted. I get paid via gift cards at the end of every month. You can however choose to receive your earnings through checks.
