    not that I condone this, but this is a blackhat forum and I'm wondering if this is easily detectable, and if you can easily prevent it from being detected?

    The fool-proof trick is to get someone else to buy it for you.

    You give them the money to buy it for you and then you get
    the commission.

    Yeah, having someone else to do that is the safest way and just give him few bucks, depends on what amount you will agree. But, of course, make sure you know that someone well. I'm sure you have friends online which can help you out on that.

    On the other hand, there are clickbank products which allows you to buy from your own affiliate link. This particularly, for instance, you will ask for a review copy of the product and some vendor will allow you to buy the product through your own affiliate link. But, not all vendors allow it.

    As for other affiliate program, not sure...better ask them. I know before there are affiliate programs that don't allow right at the beginning, specially if you're using the same paypal(for example) for both payment and receiving commission payments.

    Simple . . . You just get your next-door
    neighbor to buy it from his/her machine. :)

    Home Page:
    I have a bank account under a relatives name.

    I have the debit card.... and its on the same bank as mine.

    I have direct deposit for some advertiser... so I pay no fees on that account.

    So I purchase stuff thru it as my alternate persona aka loyal customer.

    lol

    I do it all the time. I usually just use a VPN like HMA. What I recommend though is that you use it on an affiliate that you don't really care about because in the case that you do get banned, it won't affect you.
