Paypal Wishlist is not a scam - I earned 98 dollars
Yes Paypal Wishlist is not a scam as I earned 98 dollars from paypal wishlist promo on facebook that paypal was running for the last three or four months just for the Asia Pacific region in order to become a dominant online payment system in the Asia pacific and also to help people who are afraid of buying or selling anything online using their credit cards (there are many people in Asian countries). Now, learn how I earned my 98 dollars from paypal.
Here is my paypal wishlist story:
- One of my friend sangeetjass who is also a fellow hubber sent me a referral link to join under him in the paypal wishlist application on facebook.
- My next step was that I joined that application earned my first dollar just for joining and updated my active paypal account at that app.
- Then I started inviting and referring my friends through email and many other social networking options including facebook itself and orkut, redgage, ping.fm, digg, and I published 5 hubs at hubpages loaded with that information. Thanks a lot hubpages.
- The paypal wishlist promo was a bit confusing at first and it had multiple options to fulfill before you are eligible for receiving the money as it clearly said that the money reflected in your paypal app might not be the real money you will receive. Why because every person on facebook or a new user on facebook who downloads this wishlist must have a working or should create a new paypal account before December 31, 2009.
- The above thing was really impossible for many people because most of them do not have any paypal accounts.

Then what I did to make all my earnings real, read on:
- Initially when I downloaded wishlist on December 1, 2009, I started inviting my more and more of my friends, many of them joined but then also the money was nothing for me because I contacted them and they did not have a paypal account. Then I published a hub saying Do you have a Paypal account? Yes, get free 100 dollars worth of guaranteed cash!!!
- And sent this hub to all my facebook friends. In this way, I not only updated the information of creating a paypal account to be eligible for the promotion but I also got many more referrals from hubpages itself.
- My dollars were increasing day by day, 23, 34, 56, 68, 89, and then stopped at 98 on December 31, 2009.
Now what I did after that?
Just I started concentrating on my other hubs and stopped all the promotion because it had been clearly written in the terms and conditions in the paypal wishlist application that all earners will receive their earnings up until February 28th, 2010, so I started waiting for the money to come. I was definitely sure since the starting that paypal wishlist is not scam and I have used paypal before and they cannot do this to anyone because of their marketability and fame they have. Then, I found that they just did this for advertising purposes so that they are able to get more and more paypal account holders through this promotion. That’s why I published the hub, Is Paypal Wishlist a SCAM? ▲ at hubpages. It was yesterday January 20, 2010 when I received an email from paypal stating that you have earned some money and you can claim it by clicking here. I logged into my account through that email link and found nothing but when I logged in again after 1 hour, I was really surprised to see 98 dollars from paypal.
