How to earn using your PayPal account

So you already signed up for a PayPal account.

Do you know you can earn by referring others to PayPal? It’s possible using PayPal’s Merchant Referral Bonus Program.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Start by logging in to your PayPal account.
  2. Go to the “Referrals” section and get your personalized referral link or banner that you can use to invite others to PayPal.
  3. Each time a new merchant signs up for a PayPal Business or Premier account via your link or banner, you’ll immediately start receiving 0.5% of their payment volume, up to US$1,000.*
  4. As soon as your Referred Merchant has used PayPal to receive a total of US$200.00, you will receive your initial bonus of $1.00 USD, which will be deposited directly into your PayPal account.
  5. In addition, you will receive a residual payout equivalent to 0.5% of the total amount of the merchant’s PayPal payments for 12 months after the initial creation of the account.
  6. You are eligible to receive bonus payouts for the first 12 months of the Merchant’s account ownership. PayPal will send your initial payout within one week of the Merchant reaching the initial US$200.00 while Residual Payouts will be made no sooner than every 30 days after the transaction.
Sign up for PayPal and start accepting credit card payments instantly.

Start inviting your friends now to PayPal Philippines!

Take note that in order for you to receive the Bonus, the Referred Merchant must:

(1) sign up for a PayPal Business or Premier Account through your link;

(2) become a verified user; and

(3) not already have a PayPal Personal, Business, or Premier account at the time of the referral.

  1. @Mr. Pinoy, like any other affiliate programs, the success of it depends on how many people you can convince to sign up using your link. If you know online sellers who still have not opened a Paypal account, they can be a gold mine for you.

    @arian, yup, it’s for free. When you sign up for a new Paypal account, you are given a link which you can advertise to refer other people to Paypal.

  2. Too bad, ebay sellers are not eligible. From paypal site:

    The Merchant Referral Bonus program rewards referrals of non-eBay merchants only. Payments that the merchant receives from the sale of eBay items will not count toward the Merchant Referral Bonus.

  4. Thanks for the info. I just set up a Paypal account and was wondering how I can earn through it, then I saw your post. Thanks again!

  5. Got my first letter yesterday! Loved it. I feel like I’m a aspect of something terrific that is certainly just starting to occur. Feeling a strange sense of community around it all. Maybe you happen to be on to something here! Who would have ever assumed that folks would really print out words on paper just to have it sent through the mail to another person’s mailbox. Next thing you know, peoe might be growing their own food and walking or riding bikes everywhere. It’ll in no way work, damn progress.
