    how dumb shit is this:D I was just considering getting another US mailbox and to test their service.. and look at the answer... so everyone who has an affiliate program = evil, bad, scammer, and even an "affiliate marketing company" :D

    I wonder how many people know that e.g. amazon and ebay also pay their affiliates....

    Amazon and eBay are widely recognized brands, individuals ain't. Establish brand awareness and prosper.

    The stigma comes from people confusing it with MLM or pyramid schemes. So I prefer to say I am involved in internet advertising..............

    We use mailbox forwarding too, but it's based in the US.
