    Hey Fellow BHWers,

    I need help getting into Max Bounty, but I have a couple problems.

    One, I don't have a website I can use and can't afford to purchase one. And second, I need to know if they pay via paypal. Also, do they have any incentivized offers?

    Well let me know please..

    Thanks.
    Fr3shY ;)

    They do pay via paypal. Make sure you answer the phone when they call, then tell them you do a lot of ppc with direct linking.
    And yes they do allow incentivitized offers, but you have to have separate accounts for incenive and non incetive offers.

    Main thing to get approved with them is answer the phone.

    @ebikerz, I do not want to enter my ssn so Max Bounty looks like my only option.

    @drunkseo, I don't have a website so should I call them? And should I tell them I'm doing incentivized offers? Also can you elaborate on the ppc thing..

    Thanks a bunch,
    Fr3shY

    You could probably do this, start a free blog on blogspot.com, throw in a few posts, then list it as your site in MB application.

    They will call you before approving or denying your app, this is where you tell them that you dont use a website to promote offers, you use direct linking from Adwords/Yahoo/Msn straight to the merchant's page.
    also, I probably would not tell them that you are planning on doing incentivized offers since you don't have a site to show. They are very picky when it comes to incent. offers/sites/scrips. They also don't allow cash incentives.

    I hope this helps you.

    Haha nice way to get banned though. :p

    Thanks for the information. I could make a blog, but what kind of content should I put in? This site really is my only option, so I don't want to mess up. Really need some help here..

    Thanks.

    As far as I know, they don't require it being a company outside of the US.

    Why don't you just get an EIN, you don't have to give your SSN.

    exactly. takes 10 minutes to apply for a ein. No more worries about ss# floating around. Using a bogus SS# is fine if you plan on doing this short term, because they will find out eventually. As a business owner I always checked that stuff.

    Regarding MaxBounty it is actually one on my favorites. Their interface is easy to use, and they have great offers. Lastly, there stats are realtime and I must say they are pretty damm accurate.

    Try putting google.com as your site and as other people here have indicated, say you do PPC with direct linking. Leaving the site field blank, or making something up, is likely to get you denied as it'll look like you are lying.

    Do networks routinely do a WHOIS check on listed domains?

    I can't speak for all, but mine does. A big warning flag goes up if the applicant does not own the domain. A smaller warning flag goes up if the domain is hidden via domainsbyproxy or other similar service.

    Yeah, thats what I thought. What happens if the domain is owned by a corporation other than the company name listed in the application? ie. mysp*ace*c0m?

    Any non-match raises a flag. It's not an auto denial, but its something the application reviewer will ask you about. Well, in the example you list, it probably would be an auto denial if the e-mail address doesn't match, but in general it would be asked about.

    I hide all my domains via proxy or I register them under my business. I know the business will be fine but Ive never had a problem with the proxy... Actually cpaempire asked me to make a page once for them but thats all....


    Also get an EIN, go under your parents if you have to...
