PayDotcom And $120,360.00 Worth Of Proof

    Hey Everyone,

    I don't see much talk about PayDotcom's marketplace and just wanted to share some success with a membership site that I have listed on there. This post is not meant to boast nor is this a plug for the site. It just seems that some think that it doesn't compare to Clickbank and I will assure you IT DOES!

    So far since January my partner and I have accumulated
    $120,360.00 in profit with just this site alone. We have garnered over
    50,000 affiliates thru the Paydotcom marketplace. It truly is a gem. The payment processor is Paypal so getting a Representative for your account is adviseable if you do a lot of transactions. I can't tell you the frustration of having 30K frozen in your account or not being able to receive payments for 2weeks.

    If your a vendor then Paydotcom has the ability for one click mass pay to all your affiliates so there's hardly a hassle. Clickbank handles all payments and refunds for vendors, but you have the power of this with PayDotcom.

    Anyway, I know everyone likes proof ( I'm the same way) so here's a video
    I shot throughout the night. Also the quality went to crap after uploading to Youtube. I uploaded to Google Video as well and it got even worse. I'll be shooting another video soon that will include what the site has made within and not just membership sales. For now here's the $120K+ in memberships.

    You can have a look at them but I am not here to plug so won't provide a link.
    If you need any help promoting as an affiliate or you have your own product I would
    be happy to show you how to get it listed.

    I agree 100%. Ive made a fortune off paydotcom over 6 month period of time, Probally not like your 120k but atleast a good 50k. And that was all profits just from having all my affiliates do the dirty work.

    There are many great ways paydotcom can be used to do mass promotion with. In allot of ways I like paydotcom better then clickbank.

    What are you promoting via paydotcom that has brought you such income?

    I don't promote anything.

    I am a vendor with a membership site. I put maybe 20 minutes
    a day into the customer support every morning and that's it.
    The site is completely affiliate driven. We would make more,
    but neither one of us actively promote it. I am working on something
    much bigger at the moment and it's taking most of my time.

    BTW -- That's is just the membership sales. I am doing another
    recording on what we have pulled from within the site:) We have a list of over 70,000 members that receive weekly newsletters and then of course all the CPA offers from within. It will be close to see if we can reach 1/4 of a million this year with the site. I'll probably end up selling the site though after I get my publishing off the ground.

    Very nice stats, Ruck. You did an awesome job!

    Care to tell what site it is? :D

    Yea no probs,

    It's OnlineBestSurveys.
    I don't want this to seem like a plug so I
    won't link to it but over in the Paydotcom Marketplace
    it's the #1 product in the Money and Employment section.

    Like I said, it's nothing fancy. We were selling survey site
    memberhsips on myspace and were killing it, so we decided
    to do our own site. We pay more than most of these types
    of sites and we do all sorts of cool contests to keep our affiliates
    motivated which is the main reason for the sites success.

    I gave paydotcom the plug and the proof video as a way for people to see
    an alternative to Clickbank. With Paydotcom, your able to dispute refunds if someone tries to pull a fast one on ya and it does happen...trust me, but also since the processor is Paypal, it doesn't have to be just a digital good. You can list damn near anything you want there. If you sell forklifts, get you a site up and you can easily have an affiliate program up and running and the key here is that their marketplace is growing. Here's a snapshot of just our affiliate base:

    So there's a clear indication that it can be an affiliate powerhouse. I wish all those affiliates were good:(, but I am working on a training center to get them up and running.

    nice job. Now just get a few more membership sites rolling and you'll be golden.

    Actually Chillyd,

    I already have some :)

    I have an almost exact replica on Clickbank. I found myself talking to a guy on the RJ forum this past year who owned a site already accepted by Clickbank. As we all know, Clickbank does not accept these types of sites anymore and haven't for awhile, so I got really lucky.

    I did a complete redesign and my partner and I got it off the ground. We would like to have in clickbank what we have in Paydotcom. #1 spot, as that would really propel the site like crazy, but that has not happened yet. It's moving up but a lack of focus and time dedicated has caused it to not move as fast.

    Here's the kicker though...

    When I get what I got going on right now up and running, I will no longer be doing membership sites like this. It's just not really something I want to do. Call me crazy, but eventually (hopefully in 08) I will be moving away from all my membership sites. But for now, it provides a cool, nice automated income that is funding bigger projects.

    Ruck, i hope your new bigger project is not related to imdb, this is where i will start to work and a player like you will ruin my business:D
    LOL, good luck with the projects. You new project is your ad publisher network?
    How the hell do you find motivation to work so hard?
    I completely lost all my motivation, not even money, luxury cars or nice womens are motivating me any more. I am so damn lazy these days.
    I will start again, soon, hopefully.
    Good luck working to everyone.

    Hey Nick,

    IMDB? No but sounds interesting, shoot me tip J/K :)

    Motivation -- Everyone saying that a dumbass redneck couldn't do such a thing. They were right for awhile. My girl had to set me up a Yahoo email account when I first started online, that's how naive I was to the net.

    Motivation #2 -- Working 12 hours a day Sat-Monday on a 2 hr roundtrip commute to a Wal Mart Distribution Center. Basically we loaded and unloaded the trucks of freight. Consider it getting paid to lift weights. Very tiring.

    On top of that I had a construction business I worked at Tues-Fri. Yet again, this was my part time job that include building houses, grain bins and pretty much anything construction oriented. It was usually a Daylight to Dark job. Again very tiring.

    I also drove as a seasonal Coop Chemical Truck Driver. Pretty easy job actually. Loading your chemical tanks up and filling up the crop sprayers but again it was a daylight to dark job.

    All those jobs led to hardships. I already had a son, but suffered a divorce. We got back together but I had already suffered a deep depression. No matter how hard I worked, I still couldn't get out of debt. The harder I worked to paying off bills, the less time I had with the family. So if it wasn't finances then it was a family problem.

    Motivation #3 -- I don't have a choice.

    It's really easy to enjoy working from a home office knowing you aint got to wake up at 3 am and punch a clock. Nor is there a fear of losing your job because your sick, or a family member is sick. Now that I am set for a long time, yea I could go back to a job, but I don't want to. Having 2 kids and a 3rd child on the way is all the motivation I need to understand that their will be upcoming financial issues that will need to be taken care of.

    The harder I work now, the more prepared I will be able to handle those as they come upon us.

    Other than that. I love the net man. I like what I do. Sometimes when I am doing something new I don't necessarily enjoy it, but back when I started out, I felt I didn't have a choice.

    I think of it this way. Ever wonder why it took Edison so long to make a working lightbulb? Or that doctor that created the polio vaccine. If I remember it took him ten years. These were things of the utmost importance to not only them but to people in general. That's the way I look it, it's important I keep at it and try new things all the time to expand. What I do now, and so on is going to effect others around me (family) when I am unable to do it anymore.

    Very impressive Ruck! I've often thought about starting a membership site and have some great info on how to get it going, but it seems you truly have the Midas touch for these!

    Maybe you should put something together on how to successfully go about this ;)

    Well,

    In all honesty man there probably is some stuff out there. At the time that my partner came to me, I didn't really know anything about membership sites. Bits and pieces really but that was about it. When he told me we should do what all these sites we were affiliates for I said fine "I'll look into it". Well, I really like this *partner* as he had all these thoughts going on.

    I was like the exact opposite at the time. I never sat around and wondered about stuff, I was always working on what I already had going. Then one night I got serious and told him I would build the site. It wasn't hard at all, within 17 hours straight on it, the site was live and accepting affiliates.

    If you want the truth, I never really finished the site lol. There is so much more I can do and every now and then I set time aside to add new features and what not. It was a straight shot from the hip. He had the idea and I knew what the site needed to make some money.

    As far as putting something together, jeez I dunno. I probably could write up a post or something.

    That'd be sweet Ruck! I know plenty that would look forward to it, and with posts like your Yahoo Answers post I'm sure it would be very enlightening!

    Yea :),

    That's just one site that I spend maybe 20 minutes a day on :)

    No worries,

    The more comfortable I get in settling in here, the more I will open up.

    Yea,

    If I can break away from all these Skype Conferences today I am gonna try and show how much the site makes off it's weekly newsletters and from the CPA offers from within.

    Man... that's incredible... Is the product you sell an ebook or an actual membership site?
