PayDotComI discovered this site on my daily surf on Google using the keyword ‘making money online’. If I’m not mistaken I’ve actually seen this site on someone’s blog but I didn’t bother to take a second look. As written on the title, PayDotCom is another affiliate marketing website but what attracts me the most is you get payment via PayPal.

I’ve subscribed to LinkShare, Commission Junction and ClickBank but all of these pay through checks. It’s pretty darn slow for you to receive your payments – if you are not from North America and you will need to fork out additional payment for the bank to process a foreign check.

Imagine what I will go through with Commission Junction

1. Once a prospective customer purchase an item, they will take 1-3 days to verify the purchase
2. Hit minimum $25
3. They ‘lock’ in your payment on whatever date specified by the advertiser
4. Payment will be issued at the end of the month
5. Postage will take 2-3 weeks
6. Cashing-in the check with your local bank will take another 2-3 weeks

The whole process will take up to 2 and in some cases 3 whole months!

A quick glance at PayDotCom’s participating affiliates – they do have a huge range of products and most of the vendors pay through PayPal. To view the vendors and their products, simply click on ‘Promote Products’ and ‘View Marketplace’.

Here are some advantages and disadvantages from my personal point of view:

1. Payment through PayPal – quick and fast
2. Huge range of products and vendors
3. You can sell and promote your own products as well
4. Vendors will pay affiliates each month
5. Low processing fees
6. They have a referral program where 7% of whatever fees your referral produce will be credited into your account

1. Marketplace might be too crowded and some of the products being sold have low quality
2. There are many people who are selling their so-called ‘get-rich-quick’ eBook

Although they have a referral system, but getting 7% out of the total ‘fees’ produced does not really sound ‘enticing’ but it is still money!

Personally, I don’t know whether this program really works and do the products really sell. If you want to give it a try, here’s a link for you to sign up – click here.

Happy making money online!

I wonder why other companies including Google add paypal to their payment options. Would definitely save us a lot of hassle. Just wondering how do you take out money from your paypal in Malaysia.
Interesting Bites

I joined PayDotCom sometime back, but I (as usual) has always been pretty inactive. Nevertheless, those merchants that I joined have moved out of PayDotCom - some of them stated that they have kinda a lot of problems with PayDotCom, I\'m not sure what though.
