PayPal is an online payment service that allows individuals and businesses to transfer funds electronically.
Here are some of the things you might use PayPal for:
. Send or receive payments for online auctions at eBay and other Web sites
. Purchase or sell goods and services
. Make or receive donations
. Exchange cash with someone
You can send funds to anyone with an e-mail address , whether or not they have a PayPal account. To receive the funds, though, the recipient must have a PayPal account associated with that e-mail address. Basic PayPal accounts are free, and many financial transactions are free as well, including all purchases from merchants that accept payments using PayPal [source: PayPal ].
If you have a PayPal account, you can add and withdraw funds in many different ways. You can associate your account with bank accounts or credit cards for more direct transactions, including adding and withdrawing money. Other withdrawal options include using a PayPal debit card to make purchases or get cash from an ATM, or requesting a check in the mail.
Signing up for PayPal is quick, and doesn't even require you to enter any bank account information. However, if you want to use many of PayPal's features, you'll need to add and verify a checking account or credit card. To get started, just click the "sign up" link at the top of the site's home page.
At the next page, you'll choose whether you want a personal, business or premier account. If you just plan to use PayPal for the occasional eBay auction or online purchase, a personal account is the right choice. If you intend to use PayPal to accept payments for a business, then a business or premier account would be more suitable. If you select a personal account, you can upgrade in the future.
A PayPal account is verified if you've associated that account with a current bank account or credit card. This is more than just entering account information. PayPal will ask you to follow certain steps to complete the verification process. For a checking account, for example, PayPal will make two micropayments to that account, usually about five cents each. Then, you'll need to enter the amounts of those micropayments as verification.
A PayPal account is confirmed if you've completed one of three options to signal to PayPal that the address on your account is valid. The fastest of these is to verify a bank account or credit card matching the address you've entered as the PayPal account's address. As an alternative, you can request a confirmation code by mail after you've had the account for 90 or more days, or you can apply for a PayPal Extras MasterCard which confirms your address by running a credit check.

b. Make a commitment to earn.
Method Two of Five:
Making Money Through Affiliate Advertising and Other Link-Type Advertising

b- Sign up. Once you've decided to market a company as an affiliate, search the company's site and fill out the required forms. This should always be
free, and usually only takes a few minutes.
Don't ever pay to become an affiliate.
c- Add accounts. Make a Facebook account for each affiliate program or
group of programs you sign up for. This allows people to follow your pages based on the things they're interested in, rather than having to sign up for
one page full of all different kinds of ads.
d- Promote your programs. Make posts for each of them daily, and maintain
your accounts fastidiously. With luck, and a good central account with a lot
of followers, your affiliate accounts will begin to get followers as well.
Whenever anyone clicks your posts and buys something from one of your
affiliates, you earn money.

1.blogging: "Blog " is an abbreviated version of "weblog," which is a term used to describe websites that maintain an ongoing chronicle of information.
Here's how to make money from a blog.
1. Start a Blog. ...
2. Start Creating Useful Content. ...
3. Get off your blog and start finding readers. ...
4. Build engagement with the readers that come. ...
5. Start making money from the readership you have through one or more of a variety of income streams.
Monetize with CPC or CPM Ads
One of the most common ways bloggers make money is through placing ads
on their site. There are two popular types of ads:
1. CPC/PPC Ads: Cost per click (also called pay per click)
2. CPM Ads: CPM Ads, or “cost per 1,000 impressions,” are ads that pay you
a fixed amount of money based on how many people view your ad.
Perhaps the most popular network for placing these types of ads is Google
AdSense. With this program, you do not need to be in direct contact with
advertisers; There are countless similar programs available if you find that AdSense doesn’t work for you, such as Chitika, Infolinks, and Media.net.
3. Sell Private Ads
Selling private ads can come in the form of banners, buttons, or links. You
can even make money writing sponsored posts where you write about or
give a review of an advertiser’s product or service. Another option is to
write an underwritten post or series, which is where you can write about
any topic, but the advertiser pays for a “Brought to you by” mention in the content.
4. Include Affiliate Links in Your Content: You include an affiliate link on your site. You can do this directly in
the content or through banner ads. If a reader clicks on your unique link
and buys the product you have recommended, you earn a percentage of
what she purchased.
5. Sell Digital Products
If you would rather not advertise other people’s products on your site, or if
you are looking for another stream of income, consider selling digital
products. This can include items like:
Images, video, or music people can use in their own content
Apps, plugins, or themes
Just remember that if you are going to choose one of these avenues that you
make it relevant and useful to your readers. A lot of bloggers make the
mistake of assuming they are developing a product their readers need; listen
to your readers first, and then create a digital product that will meet their

7. Use it to Build Your Credibility
The biggest thing to keep in mind is that making money through blogging is not
possible by putting your site up and letting it sit there. The “if you build it,
they will come” mentality doesn’t work here, so be sure you are willing to
put in the time. Most bloggers do not see a spike of income for several
months (sometimes years) after starting their blog. Before you dive too deep
into blogging, remember these little bits of advice:
1. Create Quality Content
2. Don’t Spend Your Time Exclusively on Your Blog
3. Don’t Be Afraid to Experiment.
