As an affiliate who HATES waiting for my money personally, i've been thinking about an idea for a start-up sometime now. Basically an online "cash advance" (via Paypal , Paxum etc.,) company if you will, that would provide a service to affiliates to gain access to their funds earlier than their normal payout schedules from their affiliate network in exchange for a fee. I KNOW affiliates would love this, however the issues that come to mind are logistics, fraud, insurance costs and the amount of capital it would take to initially get such a business off the ground. If anyone knows of any existing companies out there currently I could look at, I would appreciate it . Thanks!
