Affiliate marketing and paypal

14 replies
I have just registered on jvzoo and it states: I have to have paypal business account. I still do not have my own product's, but wana try as an affiliate.

Why these questions bellow?- I do not want to get limit or ban on my PP acc.

Do I really need to upgrade to business account, not enough of personal(I do not own any company)?

What type of business You've picked?

Thank you for the answers in advance

    Upgrading to a business account doesn't mean you own a business. It means you plan to conduct business through your account. And you do. You want to be an affiliate marketer. That's a business. So you need to upgrade to a business account.

    A personal account is just for personal transactions, like grocery shopping or lunch. If you plan to get paid for business transactions through PP, you need a business account. Simple as that.

        A bar of iron cost $5. Made into horseshoes, it's worth $12. Made into needles, it's worth $3500. Made into balance springs for watches, it's worth $300,000. Your value is determined by what you are able to make of yourself

    It's free so don't worry about it. Paypal is very simple and a trusted network to start with. And its fast. Their percents they take is insane but thats what you deal with without your own "merchant account" Start off with paypal. Its easy to use and create payment buttons.

    Use google and youtube and learn how to set everything up!

      You obviously have absolutely no clue what you are talking about. Please don't spread misinformation.

      PayPal bans people for various reasons all the time - even those that provide the documentation they request. That is a fact and not up for debate.

    As long as you are just an affiliate personal account would be fine

    I know people who have just a personal account and jvzoo has no issues with that

    Having said that upgrading is completely free you can upgrade now or when your transaction value increases

    Hope this helps

        If you are serious about an online business, it's a no-brainer.

        I suggest you make your main business name and email something generic that can cross niches. Make it "Bob's Inc" not "Bob's Furry Dog Toys".

        Actually, even if you are just an affiliate, you should go with a business account. Affiliate Marketing is just as much as an online business as being a product vendor. If you want to start an online business, you should do it right from the start and you should get yourself in the mindset that you are running a legitimate business and not just messing around with a few personal transactions.

        Also, don't think that just because you are an affiliate that you will not have to issue refunds from time to time.

        The way it works with JVZoo and some other networks like Warrior Plus is that when you make a sale through your affiliate link, you are paid by the product vendor. If the vendor has set you to receive instant commissions, you will receive the commission payment right away. If you are set to delayed payments, then the vendor will usually pay you 30-60 days after you make the sale.

        If you make a sale through your link and the buyer decides they want a refund, the vendor refunds them from his/her account and then pulls the commission back out of your account to cover the cost of the original commission.

        That's why it's VERY important NOT to withdraw or spend your commissions as soon as you get them. If, in fact, the vendor goes to pull back a commission from your account and you do not have enough money in your account, your account will go into a negative status. If this happens a couple of times, or maybe even once if it's a new account, PP may decide that's it's too much of a risk to do business with you.

        This is a common mistake that I see new affiliate marketers make ALL THE TIME.

        Do not get sucked into making this easily avoidable mistake.

        Some tips to avoid this problem are to always keep a minimum of at least $100 in your account and do not withdraw or spend your commissions until after the refund period has passed. In fact, I believe in order to be a vendor on JVZoo, you will need to keep a minimum balance of at least $100.

        Personally, I promote some high ticket products and I have a high amount of transactions every month so I always maintain a minimum balance of $300. Also, if you are serious about an online business you will want to set up automatic payments for things like web hosting, autoresponders, domains, etc, and you want to make sure you have enough money to cover your bill payments for those services every month.

        I know that once you start making money you are going to be very tempted to withdraw it and start to enjoy the fruits of your labor, but take my advice and avoid the temptation to do that.

        Good luck in your new online business. I'm sure that if you really want to succeed and you are willing to put in the hard work you are going to succeed!
