    Smile How difficult would this be? A site which allows registration to multiple sites.

    How difficult would it be to create a website which allowed a user to register with multiple websites at the same time? e.g. Say I have five websites which need my users would want to sign up to in one go.

    The obvious barriers that I can see are how to communicate with another website without being seen as 'spam'. How to pass through the spam deterrants, i.e. 'type the following letters'

    One reason I want to do this is that I am involved in some 'pay per lead' affiliate programs and usually my visitors will only sign up to the very first program on the list because of the effort in signing up to more than one. It would benefit both myself and my customer if they could select which programs they wanted to register from a list and then do so in one form completion.

    Any help would be very much appreciated!

    You'll need to talk to the sites you're signing people up to. If you're signing people up to affiliate sites, then you should be able to reach an agreement with them about exposing some sort of API functionality that would enable you to automate a signup process. If you're simply trying to bypass their signup validation with bulk data, they're probably not going to be happy about you doing it, far less want to make the process simpler for you.

    Thanks for the reply. I suppose there's no harm in me speaking to them about it although I am currently a small site so they probably wouldn't be interested.

    If I had appropriate spam protection would that help? Some of these sites are survey/market research sites and they survive on getting plenty of users so I thought they would want to assist website owners with helping people sign up to them. The average person who signs up to these sites usually wants to register with a few different ones anyway.
