    Greetings from Idaho,

    I have just joined a new affiliate network today and was really surprised to see how many of their offers they allow incentivized traffic for. I'm talking about the offers where you get paid $30 - $40 by getting the user to pay $1.95 in shipping and handling.

    Does anybody have a suggestion where I could pay people like $10 to do the offer then I pocket the $20 of profit?

    Feel free to PM me or post here with any crazy brainstorming ideas.

    PM'd you the network. Would prefer to keep it off here.

    So I was thinking maybe starting ads on CL offering $10 for $2. What I would need is some sort of escrow service that would hold my funds then release them to people when they complete the offer. Then I would require that they supply the confirmation e-mail they get from the advertiser to the escrow service to prove they did submit their credit card info.

    This sound like a decent idea to anyone? If it sounds good, who has suggestions for a good escrow service for this sort of thing? Or maybe there is already a website set up somewhere just for this kind of thing. Kind of like MTURK.

    Hey.

    Looks like something like this MAY work, but if you're looking to make big bucks... you're better off starting a GPT site and clearing it with your AM.

    Just my 2 cents.

    Yeah I went to check out escrow . com . Has anybody here used them? Looks like they allow paypal payments, which is nice. Wonder though if they allow this kind of transaction where they will release funds once the 'buyer' enters in the correct confirmation or something like that.

    Alright, here is a method I've come up with today. Will update and let ya'll know if it's working for me.

    1. I've set-up accounts at elance DOT com and odesk DOT com.
    2. What I'll do with those accounts is set up work requests for people to come 'test' our new landing page which will require a $1.95 charge on their credit card.
    3. The reward I'll set for the work will be between $10 and $15.
    4. To get paid, I'll require the workers to submit to me where the confirmation e-mail came from for their order. This is how I know they completed the assignment so I can pay them.

    Like I said in the first post these are offers that allow incentive traffic. So I shouldn't expect any problems from my AM. I will still throw junk traffic at these offers as well just to keep below the radar.

    Anyone see any holes? If not, I will update later the week to how well this is going for me.

    Do the offers allow cash incentivised because that what you're doing. Most of the time they have regular incent where you give them stuff/service and there's the one where you pay them in cash. I would like to know what the network that you're getting these incentivise offers from.

    Double check the rules on the offers. make sure they allow cash if if they do they usually will scrub the hell out of it

    Wow! sorry for the delay in responding! I just wanted to pop in though and let you all know that this method essentially does work! I've tweaked some things about it though and have tried several different scenarios. This is one of those methods that can work for noobs pretty easily.

    I will write a guide on this soon and post the whole thing in a new thread. Don't have time right now. :(

    Great method TrevDawg. We'll wait for you to write the guide! :)
