1. Frequently Asked Questions About Project Payday
1. How and when do I get paid?
Commission payments are issued every Friday, for the previous week's earnings. For example,
on Friday June 15th you would receive your commissions earned between Friday June 1st
through Thursday June 7th.
There is a $30 minimum payment threshold. If you're owed less than $30 your commissions will
accrue until you have reached the $30 minimum.
2. Can I "incentivize" and/or pay people to signup at my referral link?
Sorry that's not allowed. Since you earn a commission for each person who simply enters their
name and email address at our site, and there is no benefit to us if that's all they do, we can't
afford to allow you to incentive your referrals.
You may NOT promote Project Payday via any type of "paid to click" or "paid to signup"
programs. If you do, you will NOT be paid for these signups.
3. Can I ask people for their name and email and then sign them up myself?
No! We will only pay for leads who come to ProjectPayday.com and sign up themselves. If you
fill out the lead form on behalf of other people yourself your account will be terminated and the
leads will be deleted. If someone asks you to send them information, do not sign up for them.
Instead send them your referral link so they can signup themselves.
4. I was told Fiverr is a good source for leads. Can I use Fiverr?
No. If someone says they will give you 5 or 10 signups for $5 bucks you might think that's a
good deal. Well, chances are those are going to be completely fake leads and will result in those
leads being deleted from your account and having your account frozen. Same goes for any kind
of "guaranteed signups" or "guaranteed leads" websites. You need to promote us using ads and
through online/offline marketing. Ads drive clicks and some percentage of those clicks will turn
into leads. If you just try to "buy leads" that's a surefire way to get your account banned. Buy
ads, buy clicks, but don't buy leads.
5. Can I promote Project Payday via email "spam" or other similar ways?
No way! If you promote Project Payday via spam your account will be frozen
and you'll no longer be able to participate in our referral program. If you're
unsure whether a certain marketing tactic is considered "spam", please ask us
If you do own a website where people have opted-in to receive email from
you, such as a newsletter, then we recommend aWeber.
2. 6. Should I promote Project Payday to people NOT in the US?
No, that would not be a good idea. Project Payday is only available to those in the US, so you
would just be wasting your time and/or money.
Our system prevents those outside the US from signing up, and you won't earn commissions on
users from any other countries.
7. What is a "pay level" and what affects how much I make?
There are various pay levels that range from $1.50 to $3.00 or more per sign up. VIP members
automatically start at Pay Level 3 which pays $2.00 per sign up.
If you generate a lot of referrals we'll automatically raise your pay level. We'll also run
occasional promotions that will give you the ability to raise your pay level.
8. What about taxes on my commissions?
Commissions are paid to you as an "independent contractor", and you would normally include
this on your tax return as "miscellaneous income."
Once you reach $600 in commissions we'll need you to send us a completed IRS Form W-9
before we can pay you any further commissions.
If this applies to you, please complete the form and scan it into your computer and email it to
email@example.com, or fax it to us at (303) 265-9560.
Please be sure to write "Project Payday affiliate id number #######" on the "List account
number(s) here" line of the W-9 form and replace the ####### with your affiliate id number.

greens, as described in the training guide - email signatures, forum signatures, traffic exchanges,
MySpace marketing, etc.

10. Can I promote Project Payday via offline marketing like flyers?
3. Yes! It may sound weird, but handing out flyers with your affiliate link, or
putting flyers on cars with your affiliate link, or sending marketing
postcards in the mail actually DOES work. Some of our affiliates make all
of their money using these simple techniques.

14. I heard I should create a "landing page" or "squeeze page". Should I do that?
It depends how you are promoting Project Payday. If your traffic is "warm" meaning they
already read an article or blog post or something substantial about Project Payday then you may
not need a landing page. If your traffic is "cold" meaning all they have seen is a small
advertisement about Project Payday, then adding a landing page should help increase your lead
counts and payouts.
