    Hi everyone,

    I'm new to the whole thing. I have a background as a casino aff. I am wondering if you guys ever have any problems having your affiliate accounts closed? Do you have any strategies to mitigate the risk of that? How do you get your money around from the big programs that only pay via paypal? Cheers!

    If your really concerned it's a simple solution and identities are cheap to come by. "Google" about forming a LLC.

    Simple enough really and it's about 200 bucks all said and done if you do it in Delaware or Nevada.

    But before you get paranoid, paypal lets you have multiple e-mail addresses if you have a business account with them, affiliate issues can be gotten around with redirects and landing pages, etc... Just use your noggin.

    That's some interesting info there thanks! Didn't know that about the multiple emails with the Paypal business account.

    Don't need to form a LLC just yet but will probably sooner than later run into the issue of needing means to open multiple aff acounts with the same network such as CJ or Linkshare.

    As an aff I do now about landing pages of course but the blackhat methods of automating the whole setup and having hundred different ones for different tags/accounts or campaigns is something that's new to me. With regards to the redirect I have a basic idea how I could hide my tracks with PHP and redirect the links a couple of times before they hit their destiny so that the http referrers look good. However with the casino guys there are a few real smart ass geeks who blew the black hat redirects and reported their id. I guess it's about making enough money before you get caught.

    Hey bud and welcome to BHW. Avoiding getting your account closed ehm kinda tricky question as it would differ affiliate program to affiliate program really and what kind of "product" you are promoting.

    Think you have to be a bit more specific with your question and you will be able to get a better answer from us here. Again welcome bud.
