    Just wanted to say Hi and thank you for ALL the helpful advice I've gotten from you guys in the way of tips, leads etc. I'm already breaking the $1 a day mark after having my website online since the start of Dec with very little effort, all using a few free tips and hints I picked up mostly from here. Personally, my motivation for doing this is to earn some hobby cash. If I earn enough to pay for a couple of fishing trips per year and maybe a few beers, I'll be over the moon LOL.

    I have tried to sign up to BHW on several occasions in the past to say thanks but (and I feel like a complete idiot here) I completely missed the proceed button and ended up jumping to the bottom of the page and signing up for the newsletter several times and wondering why I wasn't getting any login details LOL. What a prize plum I can be hehe.

    Anyway, I'm here now so thanks for all the tips. Here's to breaking the $2 per day mark :)

    Speaking of my motivation for doing this, I have a question which I'll ask here but will ask in another forum if asking here is inapropriate:

    I'm in the UK but most of my affiliate signups are US based. I'm not a business and I'm not registered as a business or sole trader or anything like that.

    1. What do I do regarding any earnings I get RE Tax?
    2. My Paypal is a personal account so how much can I accept and from where and how before they start getting all shirty like they do and demand that I'm a business and freeze my account?

    I used to have a website ages ago that had adult mobile clips and I'd charge 1p, 2p etc to download them. After about a month and maybe £2 in payments they soon put a stop to it and froze my account asking to see business info and of course I'm not.

    I just want to earn some hobby cash, not thousands per year - of course if I did I'd declare it and live like a king but that's never going to happen.
    I'd just be happy earning £50 - £100 per month so I can afford my other little leisure activities like fishing. Once I start feeling like I'm tied to doing this and have to start filing tax returns etc then I've lost all interest.
    I don't want any part of that rat race again lol.

    :)

    Hello and worm welcome to BHW, I like fishing as well, you can view paypal limits to know more, it is under your account, I have uk based paypal account but never had any problem with transaction or requested business info. And paypal offer plenty of ways to increase limits, such as address confirmation, card, bank account etc.

    Hi guys,

    Many thanks for the welcome and for answering my questions.

    It was about 10 years ago when I got my old PP account froze so lots has probably changed since then.
    I just didn't want to risk getting another one froze again when I start getting (hopefully) monthly payments from places like JuicyAds only for PayPal to say I'm a business and freeze my account again like last time lol.

    I doubt I'll be generating enough to go over my PP limits so that's cool. I'm pretty much verified to the hilt with my paypal account so I've got the max send and receive as far as I know.

    All I didn't want to happen was for a small hobby to get too serious and to have to start registering as a business cos I'm no good at that stuff. It's too heavy for me lol.

    To be fair, I'm pretty much doing what I once heard coined somewhere around the internet as bottom feeding. I don't promote much other than using free tools and services and I get around 500 visitors per day on my main site after all the mobile traffic has been redirected to a mobile specific / capable affiliate. It's mainly the mobile traffic that's making the money to be fair. I do use Adultfriendfinder but I've only had one lucky sign up at the start of this month which netted me $79 when and if they pay it.

    All in all I've spent about maybe $60 on hosting and domains so I'm still up in pocket a little.
    I did try a sneaky scheme with a premium rate number but I got rumbled the first day and got my number revoked and setup fees refunded LOL.

    I don't really get much cash hence why I'm trying to make a few $$$ extra pocket money so to speak so I'm starting on the cheap then plan to feed a percentage of my small earnings back into promotion, buying a few tools, testing a couple of new domains and ideas out and supporting others by using their services as and when I need them. Most importantly of all though is the fishing and the beers lol

    Thanks again!
