Mailbox Money – Is It Real?


Maybe Mailbox Money isn’t that real any more in these electronic days,  maybe I should call it… e-Wallet money is it real?

When I first started Internet Marketing it was Mailbox money and I got plenty of it. Money from Clickbank, Aweber, and a number of other affiliates paid via check and it was always so exciting to go to the bank and deposit it. I loved it. But today most pay into Paypal, or directly into banks and e-Wallets, that is still very exciting.. to get an email that says “Youv’e got money” … woohoo

What is an e-Wallet I hear you ask? Good question… it is an electronic wallet. There are a number of them out there like Solid Trust Pay, Payza and Ezybonds, so when you get paid the money goes from the payer into your ewallet and once there you can decide if you are going to send it to your bank account, or credit /debit card. I love it as in most cases I get paid in US$ which has me earning more because of the dollar difference… Paypal is sort of an e-wallet but don’t think they would put themselves in that category.

So why am I telling you all this? another good question :-) Many have asked why I am not doing much Internet Marketing these days.. well I am .. it’s just different.

After almost 6 years in Internet Marketing as in selling ebooks, software, mentoring and running workshops and seminars, speaking on stages around the world, this year I have had a major change in direction.

A number of things has bought this about, let me list some for you.

1. It is getting harder to make money online as people can get alot of things for free, even my software. People have bought it, downloaded it and then put it back up online for free. Some have even put it back up on their sites and sold it. Rude :-) And then of course there are others who bought it and then gave it away to all their friends.
I have even had people ask for a refund of software they have not even bought. Then the other where people download the training, the software, books etc then ask for money back. I have just got over it. I have given so much money back to people who really in honesty have lied they have not bought the software or they have then decided they didnt want whatever they bought, and they ask for money back and keep the software.

2. I have had software created for me. I love creating software. But now it gets harder and harder as people I have got to create software take your money and run before completing the job.
Or some marketers have had this happen, (not in my software) they have had software written and then found later after it was sold that the writers put a trojan in the software that allowed them to get passwords etc.
The other issue I needed to get software ware updated to handle all the changes on wordpress or browser changes and the writers simply do not want to make the changers. Maybe I had the wrong writers but sometimes you have to go through a lot to find the right ones and that can cost a merry fortune.

3. Mentoring, this I love but then found this year that many paid for mentoring and then never came back and got it. I can’t handle that. I know some of my speaker friends out there say “don’t worry, that’s free money” but that does not work for me. If people pay I have to deliver. So I decided not to go with that any more either.

I could go on, but I won’t you get the general idea. I will carry on doing Internet Marketing and Affiliate Marketing as I am doing now, it has changed it’s not like the old way of doing it.

There are more and other opportunities out there to make money online than, as we say, “You can shake a stick at “

I am now about helping people make money online using whats out  there. In all cases no one needs to be an Internet genius to do any of the programs/systems that I am in.

None of the programs require you to:

    • Build a website
    • Learn SEO
    • Write Articles
    • Make Videos


So what are you looking for? Let me tell you having a J.O.B is not going to cut it, and I know You Know that. Watch the video here on the post and you will see what I mean. You have to have a plan “B” or you too will join the long lines at the food bank.

What is Your Plan B?…

I have a list of Plan B’s that will work for anyone of you. Some are easy that require almost nothing from you on a daily basis, then there are others that require some  work others require a few more hours a week. But really one has to do something.

I was forced to look at other options due to what has happened to my industry and I believe you are all in the same boat as me. You need to find something.

I spoke in another post  “Who Moved My Cheese” about things changing and if you don’t change then you are going to be in a very bad situation.
When things change what will you do?….

  • if you lose your job what will you do?
  • If you cannot pay the bills what will you do? 
  • If you lose the love of your life, what will you do?
  • If you are not financially secure what will you do?

For if we do not take care of these things in our lives we can begin to feel a sense of hopelessness and from experience that is not a good feeling.

Some of you wrote to me after that post and said I need to do something, I sent you the info and you are still doing nothing.

Some said everything is too risky, some even said they didn’t have $10 as thats as little as one needs to take part in many of the affiliate programs.

Lotto tickets are risky……

I believe in most cases it’s an excuse. What I do not understand is how some of you buy a lotto ticket or whatever you call it in your country every week and do not see that as risky. You have just risked your hard earned cash and got nothing back, you shrug your shoulders and say… “well there is always a next time…

I have invested $100 in a company that does investments, that $100 in 180 has become $4,501.64.

Some of you are already saying oh yeah sure… well it is true, there are plenty of ways and choices to make money now. Your job is to do some research on any of the programs I suggest and YOU make the decision. “What if it doesn’t work” you ask… my reply…”What if it does”

Reminds me of a very famous person…..

So what are you going to do? That is up to you. I will give you some Choices and then you can please yourself.
Do something or nothing… Your Choice :-) I hope you make the right one and you can keep your family from having to use the food bank when you are replaced with a Monkey or a Clone (check video above)

  1. Great blog as always Gail. Also great ‘Choices” all well worth having a go at.

  2. Thanks June for your comment :-)

  3. I enjoy your honesty. I have been a former student and always amazed at how much you and Gary want to help people succeed.

    I love the way you always come up with new opportunities and are always there to support.

  4. Is their an ewallet out there that is better than paypal? I deal with virtual stuff and lots of times they just check undelivered and paypal reverses payment even though I show them it was downloaded. Basically after something more secure.

  5. Hi Joy, thankyou for your comment :-) I appreciate it and you, its fun working together, Have awesome profitabel day :-)

  6. Hi Ryan … Paypal is best to use for doing what your doing. E-Wallets work differently and can be harder to set up and get verified in. So stick with Paypal for what you and I do selling online. It sure is easier.
    Gail… thankyou for the comment

  7. I call it email money or ebox! Your not getting it in your physical mailbox, so it isnt exactly mail money. Unless you have it mailed to you in check form. Heck just call it money as thats what it is!

  8. Yes I agree … ebox does sound rather good but mailbox money has a good ring about it lol
    thanks for your comment :-)

  9. Mailbox money is definitely real and STILL real as there are companies out there that offer you the option to receive money via cheque. However, I much prefer receiving my money via Paypal. With a cheque, well, there’s a chance it could get lost in the post. Then there’s the time it takes to get to you. Then you have to wait for it to clear. With Paypal, it’s quick and convenient.

  10. Is it possible to have adsense earnings put in an ewallet or paypal? If it is do they charge extra?

  11. I love receiveing money no matter how it comes lol… today has been one of those days when it just keeps coming.
    Love it… thanks for your comment

  12. That is a great question as I just got paid by adsense Google today. Its coming via check but I can now go in and change it to go to my bank account.. Fantastic.

  13. I think it takes some courage to admit when things aren’t quite working for you like they used to, and then decide to do something about it. A lot of people in your position might have chosen to do otherwise. Good luck with the new direction you’ve chosen, Gail. Take care…

  14. Robbie, as far as I know, Adsense earnings are only paid via bank transfer or cheque. Saying that, I actually think it would be a good idea if it was paid electronically (Paypal being the most popular). I don’t quite understand why Google hasn’t done that.

  15. Hi Devon, think you are right, I had to go in a re-sort how I wanted adsense to pay me, and there are a number of options and it all depends also on your country. So check it out.
    Have fun

  16. Hi. I’ve just watched the video you have up there and agree with most of what Randy said. If companies were ever about saving money/cutting corners, they’re now more so than ever. Nobody’s job is safe. Nobody’s. Not even a director of a company as who knows when they could go into liquidation. Setting out on your own is a challenge, but it’s no more risky than staying in a job that’s not guaranteed to be yours this time next year.

  17. You are so correct Felicia… one needs multiple streams of income these days :-)
    thank you for taking part

  18. Thankyou Jazz, am loving what I am doing a mixture of traditional Internet Marketing and then the new mode of Affiliate marketing as well. love it very good way to fill that mail/email box with money
    Gail… thanks for taking part

  19. I left my 9-5 years ago and I don’t have one single regret. OK, maybe I do have one, and that is: I should have left sooner! Working for myself built my resilience, confidence and sense of self. I’m of course not encouraging everyone to jump ship and go work for themselves – but what I’ve gained by going solo, I wouldn’t swap for anything.

  20. Glad you’re loving it, Gail! I guess in a way it serves as further confirmation that you made the right decision.

    Could I ask, if you don’t mind answering, what’s the difference between internet marketing and affiliate marketing, please? Thanks.

  21. I just saw your question at the end of the post. Well, like I mentioned, in my case I don’t earn Mailbox money, but Paypal money. How I earn is mostly via freelance blogging. Though the money I make from that is really good, I’d love to explore a less hands-on way of earning.

  22. Definitely believe that which you stated. Your favorite justification appeared to be on the internet the easiest thing to be aware of.
    I say to you, I certainly get irked while people think
    about worries that they plainly don’t know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people can take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thanks

  23. says:

    I precisely needed to say thanks all over again.
    I am not sure the things that I would have achieved in the absence of the actual
    information revealed by you regarding such a subject. Previously it was a very distressing crisis
    for me, nevertheless spending time with this specialized strategy you
    handled that forced me to jump over contentment. I’m happy for this advice and then trust you find out what a great job you were getting into training men and women all through your site. Probably you’ve never met
    any of us.

  24. Hello, I enjoy reading all of your article. I wanted to
    write a little comment to support you.
