    Sorry if this isn't the right place; I wasn't sure where to post it.

    Long story short: I'm 17 and very interested in internet marketing. I am out of high school and start college in a year and want to have something for some money on the side. I do have access to a paypal account (my mom but she's down for the cause) if that matters so must you be 18 to do this / are there networks that don't require you to be 18?

    Thanks!

    :)

    I don't believe any networks require you to be 18? I may be wrong, but I definitely know you can do IM while being under that age...

    I started IM when i was 15/16. Now i am 18. I can tell you that i was making more money in that period that i'm doing now. I had problems with Paypal, but i made an account with little help from one friend.
    So, no, it is not requierd.

    Yes, if you're under 18 the internet will hunt you down and eat you.

    Of course not, it's the internet where you can pretend to be anyone, how can they really check how old you are?

    Hey man,
    Age doesnt matter when u are applying for most affiliate sites.

    But anyway you can have your own paypal, that doesnt require a mstercard, visa etc. All u have to do is call your bank, and ask for these certain numbers (i dont remember what each numbers were for) but anyway i have my paypl linked to my bank, its good to have other than it takes about 9 days to transfer money to it. I guess the upside would be having your own paypal.

    Thanks for the replies everyone, I had a good laugh and am on my way to step one of my journey. The internets will eat me aliiiiiiiiiiiiiiiive!

    Anyway I just wasn't sure how it went down as far as the sign-up and phone call and so on, maybe a W-9 or something. When I was doing textbroker (18+), which I just quit, I got my mom to fill out a W-9 with her info and I'd pay whatever the taxes came out to if I made it over $200 (I didn't because I'd rip my hair out before I keep that shit up - just got rejected on a $40 order for no reason)

    Keep on hustlin' y'all.

    Can you make money online if you're under 18? Yes.

    Is it legal? Technically, you must be 18 in order to enter into a legally binding contract. When you sign up for a program, you are not 18, and so the contract and terms between you and the program are not legally binding and may cause issues.

    If you have a parent sign/cosign for the program, then it is legally binding.
