There are a couple of things that YOU simply MUST HAVE when setting up to make money online.
1. An email address
Many people use a Gmail address and I do as well. Try and make your email address fit in well with your website. For example, this website is called MoreDollarsAtHome. Guess what the email address is? Yup, it’s moredollarsathome @ gmail.com. Hint: When you place your Gmail address on your website, leave a couple of spaces in there, so the spammers don’t pick it up. Check the right sidebar to see how I have done this.
You can have several Gmail accounts if you like. When you set up a new one, you can then go into the settings and have all emails automatically forwarded to whichever Gmail account you use most often. This will save you time, as you won’t have to be logging in and out of several accounts during your day.
You simply must have a Paypal account. Not only does it make receiving and sending money very easy, there are also several companies out there on the Internet which ONLY pay you through Paypal.
Paypal is a very secure way of paying or being paid. You can use it not only for your online business, but in your everyday life as well. Need to lend your kids some money quickly? As long as you both have a Verified Paypal account, it can be done instantly. Need to take advantage of a service being offered for a short time? Pay for it through Paypal.
Go to www.paypal.com and sign up. It will take a few days to get your account up and going. You need to include a bank account and you will need to wait a few days for Paypal to make 2 small deposits into that account.
Once they do, you go back over to your Paypal account and enter in the amounts of those two deposits. That is how you verify that you control that bank account.
