    The last several years I've been making a little bit of money via PayPal by selling links in a network of link directories. It wasn't a lot, maybe $10-50/week. But it was completely passive, all I had to do was approve links.

    I'm looking for other ideas for selling things through my web site that will result in a PayPal transaction.

    I was using PHPLD for this....what other software is out there that supports this kind of passive income potential via PayPal?

    I sold links on my directory

    That's not a bad idea...but it I'm looking for passive income...selling services would require a bit of time.

    If you don't want to hire people to do the work nothing is truly passive and even that isn't passive as you have to keep track of what they're doing, monitor results and you get the idea.

    The closest thing to passive that you will find is creating sites in niches that don't have active competition (meaning that the people who are on #1 are there for years and don't really update their sites, so they probably don't do SEO either). That way once you make it to #1, if you've used stable links that don't get deleted afterwards you should remain on #1 and that is passive income.

    Of course even that requires some work.

    I'm doing that. But the question was more about funding my PayPal account w/ passive income.

    After Penguin update, I started to experiment with micro niche e-books.

    It's fully passive income once it is set up - Person finds your e-book, clicks buy now button, pays by Paypal/card, downloads it through automatic system (Paid downloads plugin) and that's it...

    Of course, e-book must be from your area of specialization and top notch quality - otherwise there will be refunds. Sales page also needs to be good, plus there are some other conditions you need to fill to make this work for you...

    I may write a thread about this method, once fully tested... Meanwhile, the results are quite promising, and most importantly, it's passive income.

    I hope this helps you...

    Thanks. Do you use a plugin for wordpress to handle the payment/delivery of an ebook?

    Yes, The plugin is called Paid downloads - it's pretty good, customizable and always working 100%. On the top of that, it's free!

    I highly recommend using it
