    Hello, I've spent the past half year researching and reading tons of ebooks on affiliate marketing. I'm especially interested in CPA marketing.

    I've gone through affiliate payload, com blue, site rush, affiliate X factor, PPC scare tactic, and Project Payday.

    I understand what is in these products, and a basic strategy i think i'll put into place. (mostly interested in zoning in on current events in the news)

    I guess the big problem is that I'm only 15 =/

    Do you think I'm ready, and what legal way can i take to get paid, file taxes, and get accepted by CPA networks?

    Thanks everyone!!

    p.s - I'm only going to go the white hat way with this business..... for now anyway.... =]

    If you are only going to be WH with this at 15 it will be very hard if not impossible to get paid and file taxes and all that junk without a ton of trouble. I'm not sure it's even possible.

    I'm worried you will be right... I really need a way to get my feet wet, and see if this can be profitable.. anyone know how to do that? get my feet wet?

    Yes, well i am going to buy a business name, LLC. I was thinking that my father could be the actual "affiliate" to the CPA network, and then he gets accepted under his name, then i do all the work for him, the CPA pays him, which is put into the company, and i'm on the payroll of our LLC company? Will this work and be completely legal?

    P.S. I'm in the USA

    I'm 16 and I had a Paypal when I was 14. I'm in a lot of CPA companies. Many don't even ask for age verification and I've never encountered it. Also, W9 forms can be filled out if your 15. You know those kids who bag groceries? They have to fill out tax forms. Plus, since your 15, you don't pay taxes on your earnings :). Talk to your parents about getting a bank account setup in your name. If your parents don't trust you enough, get a joint account in both names.

    There is nothing holding you back.

    You will be fine. You can get a Paypal before you are 18 and there are several CPA companies that will accept you.

    I am 16 and I have my own Paypal account and I have a Neverblue and MaxBounty account.

    Neverblue is my favorite site and I definitely recommend applying to them.

    If you need any help pm me :D

    I'm 17 and just starting. I've recently got a paypal account, and opened up a checking account on top of my savings account. Currently waiting on receiving my checks and debit card :)

    Yay for young BHers.

    Welcome,
    I agree you should get started. Many times people are too scared of failure to get started. Take some of the above post advise and just do it. Get started and stay focused. If you have been reading and studying for 2 years Then you are ready. But then again I am at times like the guy who jumps in a row boat with a jar of tarter sauce and a fork to go hunting for mobey dick.
