    Banners for paypal

    Hey guys I'm looking to getting a few extra bucks to spend on my site. I am going to start selling some templates and stuff, but I want another source of income. As I'm unable to use credit cards and other forms of transferring money to and from the internet, I must stick with paypal. Does anyone here now of a banner advertisement that will pay you in pay pal?

    Thanks,

    Joe

    Google Adsense pays you with a check they mail to your house.

    When your ads reach $100.00 at any given point, they cut a check
    by the end of the next month and mail it right to you.

    No credit cards involved, no bank accounts ...
    You just need to provide them with your SSN (as they send a tax
    form at the end of the year ... you must report the income).

    I use Google Adsense text ads. On a site that gets about 300-400
    visitors per day. It takes me about 3 months to get $100 check.
    Not much money, but it pays for my hosting and stuff.

    Well the point of me using paypal is because my parents don't want me putting stuff like my ssn number out on the net. So do you know of any that will work for paypal?

    Thanks,

    Well ... good luck.

    You can't do any money making without either a credit card,
    bank account, or some sort of Adsense account.

    To have PayPal, you need to be verified (with a bank account).
    There is no other option.

    Here's the thing ...

    Some people NEVER use the internet because they feel like
    their security will be breeched. The fact is, everthing about
    you (and those people) is already on networks, and the internet.

    You should go to your county courthouse site and look up the
    property/housing records for your parents. That's public information.
    Show them what is already available online. They would be amazed
    at what information is listed about their home, property values, and
    property taxes (all public information).

    Perhaps you can ask people to send you cash to a P.O. Box?
    oh yea ... you have to pay for a P.O. Box too.

    The only way to make money is to take risks.

    Computer Science, programming, web design, information technology ...
    If computers are a passion for you, follow the dream. Once you're an
    adult, you're on your own ... your dreams are your dreams.

    But, they're your parents. I just feel bad that they don't see you for
    who you are. I'm just assuming that computers are really something
    you're interested in ... what aspect of computers are you really
    wanting to explore? programming, graphics, design, hardware?

    You're not putting it out on the net, you should tell them; you're providing it as part of a business contract with a bluechip multinational whose motto is "Don't Be Evil". Then you should show them Google Maps and tell them that Google already knows their address, what car they drive, where they put their rubbish and whether or not they're going bald.
