    Hi there..Im new in associated content (AC)

    Im outside USA..so i can do the performance payment method only

    My plan is to do about 10 articles..then promote those articles for 10k traffic a day

    So do i have to make 10 AC accounts and 10 paypal accounts too? Because Im affraid AC will not pay for one acct of 100k traffic a day (150 usd per day)

    Pls advise me :)

    I think the limit is $600 per account or something.
    You need 2 paypal accounts. Or you could make only 8 AC accounts and use 1 paypal account.


    Go ahead, and post your results here.

    If you only plan to get performance payment, I think the limit of $600 is omitted. I suggest you open a new account to be an USA citizen, and start to get upfront payment. And the limit of $600 must be watched very carefully.

    If the traffic you are planning on getting through your promotion is legitimate, then you could probably make more money by posting that content somewhere on your own, and getting the right affiliate offers.

    Just make normal articles about things people want to read, and place ads on it. Even if you only put Ad$en$e on your blog, at 100K visitors a day, you would be making so much money your head would spin, and the right affiliate offers would pay even more than that. Consider this: There are many affiliate offers that pay over 100 usd for a single conversion (someone who ultimately goes on to purchase whatever they are selling). If you truly were able to drive 100K visitors a day to the blog, a .1% (one in a thousand) final conversion rate would make you 10K a day, and a .01% final conversion rate (1 in ten thousand) would make you 1K a day.

    Different offers will convert at different rates, but it would be hard not to do better than AC. If you need seed money (to buy hosting, etc.), and really have no other way of getting it, then by all means, create multiple AC accounts, pretend to be an American, push in enough articles to get to just under 600 bucks, then move on to the next account, but if you can really get that sort of traffic, you can easily do way better than AC in the long run. WAY better.

    Hi mattstrike, can you please tell me that how to pretend as an american in details, I am from India. I think I should use some US proxy, then sign-up with a fake us address and limit myself within 600$ so that they send my earnings into my PAYPAL A/C, instead of sending a cheque and a tax form to my fake US address. But the Paypal a/c also should be "verified US A/C", isn't it ? And how could I create a fake "verified US A/C" when I am in India? Please tell the details method to overcome these problems and also mention other loopholes which I might missed. Thank you for your co-operation in advance.

    First of all, take this with a grain of salt, use at your own risk, etc.

    AFAIK, AC does not, in any way, "check" to see if you are actually an American or not. However, once your up front compensation hits USD 600, they stop paying out, until you file the tax papers.

    Also, AFAIK, AC will happily allow someone to sign up with account after account, all pointing to the same PP account, and they will never do anything about it.

    Another way of looking at this, is that AC does not care - they want the content, and they are willing to pay for it. The only reason that they will freeze the payouts at 600 bucks, is to avoid getting into trouble with the government.

    So, in short, if you can create articles that are good enough to pass muster, and you are willing to put up with the minor inconvenience of creating new accounts every 600 bucks, you probably don't need to bother with anything else.

    There is a HUGE thread floating around here, started by ShaqSquash, about making money on AC. It might be of use to you, and there might be better or more current info on their policies there - I would suggest subscribing to that thread, and monitoring it in case AC should change their standards.

    Best of luck.

    Thank you very much mattstrike for your most valuable suggestions. Just one thing I want to clear that won't AC mind if I request payment to a Paypal A/C which is Indian ? I mean when they send payment to my Paypal A/C they will be able to see that it's a Indian A/C, not US. So what happened then ?

    And also thanks a lot for mentioning other sources in BHW, I will surely check them out.

    AC sends out their payments using the mass-pay function (they pay tens of thousands of accounts, several times a week). The bottom line is that it isn't like they are looking at the individual accounts, unless something else happens to cause them to suspect fraud, etc.

    Also, keep in mind that there are plenty of American citizens who live and work in India, and have Indian bank accounts and Indian PP accounts. ;)

    Thanks once again mattstrike for clearing my doubts, you are such a nice guy. You told that AC will not see my account individually unless they suspect a fraud. Could you please advice me something how to stay under the radar in AC so that they won't suspect my a/c as fraud ?

    If the articles that you submit are fully compliant with their terms and conditions, and the content is unique, you should be fine.

    The things that normally raise red flags are numerous articles that are very similar, or very similar to other articles already online somewhere.

    if I understand what you are saying 10k traffic a day to your 10 articles? i think AC will notice something suspicious about that.

    Its even worse, 10k per article per day? dude i would not expect 1 payment, thats probably more than any other article in their site
