It’s hard to believe everybody doesn’t have a PayPal account, but some people don’t, and many with good reasons. Many people starting online businesses may have been buying stuff for years online without having a PayPal account. Since PayPal allows purchasing through it with a credit card but without an account login, many people will just do that when presented with PayPal as the only payment option.
I can relate, because I am account-creation averse myself and for a time had a running dispute with PayPal that prevented me from using my account but did not prevent me from buying stuff with PayPal by paying without an account login.
You can earn commissions when people sign-up for merchant accounts through your referral link. The commission has limits, but it’s probably worth setting it up if you market, as I do, to people who want to start or grow online businesses.
PayPal has a referral program that pays commissions but they make it really hard to find your link.
I had a PayPal account with a referral link a while back, but I closed it and stopped using it and opened another…

I’ll preface this by saying that I’m not promoting this product, because I bought it and I did not find it useful to me. That doesn’t mean you won’t like it or shouldn’t buy it. What you get out of any program of this nature has a lot to do with your commitment to taking action and your own experience level. I would classify myself as a “seasoned” online marketer with mastery of many fundamental skills. A less experienced marketer than me might find this product meets their needs very well.
The salesletter and positioning of the product seem to be working awfully hard to convince us that these “scripts” product automated traffic. They don’t. They simplify some minor marketing tasks like adding meta tags to blogger blogs and searching Yahoo answers for keywords.
You might be dazzled by the spit and polish of how this program is promoted. Once you buy the upsell offer alone are dazzling in their quantity and pushiness. You’ll get many offers in your email for other products as well.
I tested the banner rotator on this blog (http://malibumentor.com)… and all I ever saw it display was a banner for the Automated Traffic

Here’s a way to get lots of hot traffic, easily.
It’s a method called trend marketing. It’s fast, easy to learn and pretty un-technical.

A hot trend might come up about a new video game, for example. You identify the trend and set up a blog. The traffic comes easily because the trend is hot and a lot of people are searching for it.
Trend marketing can be a lot of fun, because if you hit a sweet spot in a hot trend, you’ll get a tsunami of traffic to your trend blog… and that traffic always turns into ad clicks. For 100 visitors the revenue isn’t likely to be that much, but if you get 10,000 (very possible with some trends) that’s 100 times 100 and it adds up. Considering the amount of work (very little) and the ease of the method, trend marketing can be a nice money-maker for you do work on when you have a spare 1/2 hour. I’m not kidding, because setting up a trend blog really takes only a
