    Hi guys ;)

    I am from Spain, I wanted to ask which is the strategy to get accepted to EPN USA and UK. I want to make some BANS but I am not on EPN yet.

    I keep reading it's hard to get into it, could you give me some tips?

    Can I apply directly to a US account if I am from outside US? What can happen if I put fake details (like US adress) and ask to be payed via paypal?

    I am not really planning on CS or anything, just white hat stuff, but I don't have a web built at the moment, and dunno if I should build a wordpress or what kind of web, that they will like and accept when I apply for EPN.

    Thx!

    You have to build a good website before applying. Wordpress is okay. Make it look professional and include a contact page and privacy policy. It helps if you don't use a free email address to apply (better to use an email address with your website domain name). Ebay is very strict so it's risky to use false information. If you get rejected try again after a few weeks or try applying through the Pepperjam affiliate network.

    But the wordpress could be a 'blog'? With posts, embedded videos and stuff?

    I don't quite get what it is that pepperjam offers, or how much do they charge for it.

    You say it's risky to use false info, but I see lots of EPN accounts being sold, they must have false contact info so how do they take money from those accounts with false data? paygal?

    Yes you can use a blog but it has to look good. Make some informative posts (10 or more) before applying to EPN.

    Pepperjam is an affiliate network like Commission Junction. Ebay runs its own affiliate program now but it is also a merchant on Pepperjam. So if you get turned down by EPN you can try to join Pepperjam and use it to apply to Ebay. Or you can just wait a few weeks and apply directly to EPN again.

    It is easy to buy EPN accounts but I don't know if they last long. Remember that Ebay owns PayPal and they share information so they can bust you.

    You can go to the EPN site and look at the application form to check if it lets you join EPN USA and UK from Spain. EPN lets people from many countries join more than one network so you can probably join from Spain too but I have not checked.

    Best way to do it IMO : Credits would go to Gr33n a bit ;)

    1. If you have Spain air card and you can apply from your country do it ( so you don't need buy loads of vps/vpn
    2.Canada is your 2nd opinion or uk
    3. Ok now you have your country so go to ebay pulse and look for whats selling there.
    4. Go to google and search for good websites you could use which doesn't have ebay ads on them.
    now go apply with your fake details with stolen website and see if you get in ,For better explanation go to Gr33n's post @ CS section

    That would be interesting yeah (you can ommit any CS reference, I just want the EPN creation part). I don't know what you mean with spanish air card.

    About Pepperjam, if I apply to EGAY through them, would I keep the same money as if I was directly an EPN? Do pepperjam take a share of the money egay pays me?

    Sorry, don't know well how commission junction or pepperjam work.
