Why Don’t You Use PayPal Referral Links?


I have visited so many sites over the days, months and years and so many of them mention PayPal. One thing that dumbfounds me when I visit a number of them that mention PayPal is why they don’t take advantage of the PayPal Merchant Referral Bonus Program. If someone signs up for a Business or Premier PayPal account you get a monthly bonus equivalent to 0.5% of the new merchant’s net sales as soon as they reach US$200 in sales. There on in, every month for the next 12 months you receive a bonus of 0.5% of their net sales with the maximum bonus you can receive being US$1,000.

I started putting links up on my sites a little while ago and a number or people have signed up via the links. When someone signs up, PayPal sends me an email thanking me for referring so and so and that I am eligible for a bonus. These are emails I very quickly forget about and before I know it I am once again receiving emails from PayPal but this time notifying me that I have received a merchant referral bonus.

All you do after you’ve logged into your account is click on the Referrals link at the bottom of the page which will take you to a page where you will find your personalized referral link and logo to put on a site.

Sign up for PayPal and start accepting credit card payments instantly.

It’s that easy, it takes seconds to put up the links and you can forget about them after that. If you manage to get new people to sign up to and who make good use of PayPal, the referral bonuses start to add up and you make that bit of extra money. PayPal is used by millions of people around the world as a way of making payments and getting paid online and there are plenty more people out there who are still to sign up. So, why don’t you put up referral links and take advantage of the PayPal Merchant Referral Bonus Program?

    I have recently joined paypal but can’t figure out why the status shows unverified.It is asking to enter my credit/debit card details to verify which i don’t want to enter.Is there any other way.
    Any help will be greatly appreciated!!!

    I think it is best to contact PayPal to find out what is going on.

    PayPal offers a fantastic, free-to-set-up shopping cart that is great for lower volume sales. A percentage of each of your sales goes to them as fees. In addition, you can automatically take major credit card payments without setting up credit card merchant services. This saves you $300-$400 right away. However, for high volume sales you may pay less by opting for a shopping cart vendor that charges you a monthly fee rather than a percentage of your sales.
