    Hey guys,

    I hear a complaint that a lot off people hate that AC doesn't pay upfront for non-U.S. citizens. So I had an idea, why non partner with non-U.S. citizens in order to make money?

    So here's the deal in a nut-shell:
    If your a non-citizen, you give me articles and I submit them for you on AC.
    If it gets upfront or performance payments, I give you 85% of what AC gives me (all transactions will be proven by me).
    I'm thinking of just giving the account username and password... but there has to be a certain level of trust involved (for all parties).

    So that's it in a nutshell... What do you guys think? This is good for up-front payments, not sure about performance payments though... I don't know if they give a detailed performance payment outline (broken down into views per certain article, only a problem if there's a lot of people handing me articles).

    I'm not very familiar with AC but I know a lot of ppl want to make money from them and hate that they don't cater to non-U.S. citizens, I think this is a good solution.

    Also, with enough content submitted, performance payments can go to $2 per 1000 views, up from $1.50. This is easier to do with having just one account.

    Profit potential is unlimited guys! Anybody interested? Any problems you would forsee?

    Its a good idea, but a GREAT deal of trust would be involved. I think many people will just stick with switching accounts tbh. Good luck though :)

    Exactly, I'm a legit guy but lol

    How many people say that nowadays? Hey trust me! I think the hedge to that would be payment transfer every couple of days or else... If there would be scamming taking place, it'd be like a $4 scam. I think i'd prefer to have long term relationships with ppl who would take this seriously because thats the way I would make any money off of this deal (hey I wanna make money too!).

    I've been scammed out of $4000 by my ex-boss and anybody who does it should burn in hell for all eternity... scum bag. Sorry for the rant lol

    Yea thats a good point... It could also work like I give you all of the upfront payments but I take all of the performance payments. Eh? I dunno it seems pretty flexible to me.

    Yea and I just thought about the tax part of it, basically if I give away $100,000, I still have to pay taxes on it!


    YIKES BAD IDEA

    Hey, this is good idea, a lot of us can not create AC acc, and would like to earn some extra cash.
    I am just interested, can you pay me money via moneybookers, because i can't use paypal ?

    lol, yes, I almost forgot about the tax issue. If you want to make a partnership, here is my idea :

    1. collect all of the money
    2. slice the revenue (85:15 is the best)
    3. cut the 85% with the tax (that means you still get your 15%, because you only submitting).
    4. send the remaining money into your partner (85%-tax)

    This could be a big loss for your partner, but that is the best way IMO. Or maybe you can split the tax between you two. :)

    Yea I think the tax would have to be 85/15 as well, again that includes a lot of trust in that transaction...

    @ sqlbyte - that seems reasonable, why can't you use paypal? just wondering, maybe thats another niche of people who would be interested?

    Because i live in very interesting country where people don't give a shit about anything or anyone, and it is called Serbia.
    I think that we are the only country in the world that is not accepted by paypal because its own policy and not because paypal don't want them.
    We can't send and recive money via paypal coz of some banking/state retarded law.

    Truth is, the AC upfront payment is crap and performance payment is utter bullshit!!

    They pay anywhere between .99 cents to 4$ for an article. Its why they are getting rewrited, plr rewrited crap articles... And if you use the article for your own use, you will get more money from this.. article marketing, affiliate marketing, using as content in your sites etc.

    Now about the performance shit: I seen an author in AC have some 1,550,000 pageviews from may 2006 to till now.. I just calculated what she got from performance shit...

    It like this; 1,550,000/1000 = 2325$, then divide this amount with her months (31) from 2006. Now we get= 75$ per month...

    Now people tell me, if anyone of you have 1,550,000 pageviews of your total content or articles, how much you will get from this? from Adsense, from CPA things, or affiliate things?

    Just use AC for a short time...
    (if the calculation is wrong, please correct me, thanks)

    Hi
    I am very interested in your offer. Even though i can sign up using US proxies and all but I dont like faking info and like to keep it all straight . It seems cheating to me to receive upfront payments by having my own account when I am not from US

    As for those who have trust issues .those and the OP himself should think of this...... If the Op does not pay for instance .... he will make a quick buck but lose more in the long run since you wont do business with him again.And this is very easy money for the other partner because he only has to submit.

    Regards

    Those that want to get in the ac craze, why not sell your articles you write to people that submit them, work out a price that works for both, that way you dont need to work around splitting and such.

    If the articles do well, you keep working, If they dont, You would not make anything working with ac anyway.

    Only if you make more than $600... also another note which I heard that makes sense... AC doesn't seem to check your IP until you do stupid stuff like submitting more than 30 articles or something.

    $600 on mothly basis or one time in an account?

    You said they won't check IP address if we submit more than 30 articles, that should be daily 30 articles right?

    the $600 limit is on accounts the 30 articles limit is per day and is arbitrary.... No one knows the exact amount that sets off AC's "red flags", anyone who does is either an idiot or trying to sell your their $5,000 method for $97.
