Hi, I thought I was following the Super Affiliate Challenge but only realised now that I had to apply. How do I go about doing this?

Hi Brian, the Super Affiliate Training is already running, maybe you can write a personal message to Kyle or Carson and ask if you can still get in.

Hi Daniel, thank you for getting back to me. I sent Kyle a message pleading my cause. I only signed up at the end of January and wasn't aware of the deadline. Hope to have a favourable response from him soon.

Hi Brian and welcome to WA. You are still in your first month so that means a welcome is still good. :) Thank you for following me and I wish you the very best as you continue. Pretty awesome being a cellist, congrats on that. You look like you are in a tropical climate in your profile photo or at least a very warm one. :-) ( Canada here and cold!)

Thanks for the welcome Merry. I often see your posts and replies, and appreciate your input. I'm in Cape Town which is a warm, comfortable climate. Right at the ocean which is very pleasant.
Reply
MsMerry Premium
Thank you, Brian. Isn't Cape Town experiencing a water shortage or have they found a solution? Where I live we have a lot of S. African Drs. Love your accents. :)

BrianCh Premium
Hi Merry, hope all is well with you. Cape Town is surrounded by ocean so it is quite ironic that we are in the worst drought in it's history.

I received a message telling us about SSL that is essential to our websites. Is this something that is automatically done for us at WA to do we have to manually activate it?

Click on your profile image at the top right hand corner, and then select CREDIT DASHBOARD. From there you can buy credits to use.

Hi TD, tried that but there are no sliders to select the quantity and the buy button does nothing.

Hi Roy,

Thank you for your kind message. I'll be sure to follow you as well. I spent the last week finding my way around WA before I felt confident enough to take the plunge and go Premium. I have an incredible amount that I need to learn. You won't believe how very green I really am. But, here goes!

All the best to you.

Hi. I would like to go Premium. Obviously the initial subscription I have to make. Does WA automatically make subsequent debits from my account or is this a payment that I have to make at the beginning of every month?
Reply
phoeby123 Premium
It's set up automatically, monthly, either PayPal or credit card.
Reply
BrianCh Premium
Hi Phoebe. I think I would like to elect for PayPal.
Reply
phoeby123 Premium
click on your profile image, drop down menu, click on Account Settings, set up PayPal account email address. You're set.
Reply
BrianCh Premium
Thanks. I've just gone to Premium status. Is the PayPal email address my standard gmail.com address or does it have to be something specific? How does the PayPal work through an email address? Don't they need some account number or Merchant ID?
Reply
BrianCh Premium
Hi All. Is a PayPal email address the same as the PayPal Merchant ID? I'm watching the training on Bootcamp and not sure how to set up the PayPal account. Thank you.
Reply
codevonish Premium
Just go to paypal.com and open an account which will call for an email address to notify of sales etc.If you have a Merchant ID you can probably use the same email address. Good luck.
Reply
BrianCh Premium
Thanks for your reply. I have set up a PayPal account already so I'll just use the email address that is on that account. Never used it before so not sure how WA makes the payments into the PayPal account. Please advise. Thank you.

Just wanted to shoot you a quick message and see how things were going thus far BrianCh? I am here to help if you ever need a hand with anything, just holler!

PS. Also, quick reminder. Today is the last day to get your first month discount/bonuses. No rush, no worries. Just a simple reminder here. :)

Hi Kyle. Thank you for the message. Does WA debit my MasterCard monthly for the subscription or is this something that I have to do at the beginning of every month?
Reply
Kyle Premium
Yes, their automatic payments but you are in full control of your membership. You can stay for as long, or as little as you like and we also have a yearly payment option.

And your billing date, is 30 days from the day that you first pay.

If for any unforeseen reason I have to suspend or terminate the subscription do I simply notify you or what is the procedure? This is not a pessimistic enquiry as I obviously have every intention of succeeding at this. I do however need to go in with as much knowledge as is needed. Thanks, Kyle.

You can notify me or you can manage your account within the Account Settings page.

Hi Kyle, I've just tried to purchase a domain using both Matercard and PayPal payment methods and both have returned failed. Are you currently experiencing any difficulties?
Reply
Kyle Premium
If you are having a tough time buying a domain through your credit card (directly on the SiteDomains page), you may want to test using credits to purchase your domain name.

To do this, you will need to first purchase enough credits for a domain name. You can purchase credits here:

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/credits

I recommend buying $20 worth as this cover the cost of the domain. Then you will go back to your SiteDomains checkout process and use the credits to purchase the domain.

This should do the trick. :)

Hi Kyle, I've gone to the page and clicked on Buy Cash Credits and nothing happens. Link down?

It should be working, I just tested and it was working. What happens if you go here?

Hi Kyle, the problem seems to be that there are no sliders on Buy Cash Credits or Exchange Credits for Cash on my side for some reason. I'm on a Mac using Safari so I doubt that it is a browser issue. I tried the link that you suggested above and this took me directly to the various options so that will definitely work. Thanks for getting back to me.

Hi. I have a notice telling me that I only have 2 days left to ask questions. Does this mean that I won't be able to respond to notifications? I am also completely unfamiliar with the "follow" and "being followed" concept. What does this mean and how does it actually work in real time? I am still quite overwhelmed with everything on WA and how it all works.
Reply
CarlJDill Premium
Hello Brian,

This will help some I suspect. By following you will get notifications on things that your follows do. Posts and questions and likes and such. These are completely user definable though. As far as the two day limit on questions I am not sure. I would have to ask a friend who has been a starter member for several years now. Check out the training and see if that helps.

Hello Brian

You became a wealthy affiliate member on the 24th of January and as a free starter member you have access to the community support for 7 days. After that you can choose to continue as a free member without access to the community support or you can become a premium member.

Here is a link to help you with what is available to you as a free member and what is not.

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/order/signup/premium

You choose who you want to follow. Members will welcome and follow you. You can read their profiles and follow them back or you can choose who you want to follow. That way you will get to know those with similar niches to network with or those with information you need on your path. It is just mixing and finding your way around.

But most important, focus on training and building your business. Do all the lessons and tasks at the end of each lesson.



Best of wishes.

~Danielle

Hi Danielle. How do I get access to the information of the people who I have selected to follow? How does following someone actually play out?
Reply
SongbirdDL Premium
Click on the profile picture of someone you are following and you get to read their profile and under their profile picture are all posts they have written, the training they have created and their websites.

If you are not following them you can't see their website if they have it listed under their profile but you get to see the rest of their information.

Just click on any profile picture and see what comes up.

To get back to your profile, you just click on your profile picture too.

Thanks, Danielle. You are really helping me out. I've heard of Facebook and how people follow one another but that's the extent of my knowledge of how the whole thing works.
Carl sent me a tutorial to work through explaining the dashboard and the various features so I'm hoping that once I've worked through that I'll have a better grasp of the concept in it's entirety.

I'm honored! Thank you for adding me to your network. I have done the same.

If you need help do not hesitate to ask. It's a bit overwhelming at the beginning but you will get there.

If you go to anyone's profile and ask them a question, on their profile, they will see your message. It will be specific to that person but visible to everyone who goes on that profile.

Another way, way to ask is by going to the top white search bar and ask your question. The community members will come to your aid.

This is what was being referred to that you have two days left.

On the top left of the screen is a blue button for live chat. If you click on there you will be able to ask your question too.

Just keep clicking on buttons and see what's there.

The most important button on there is the green "Get Started Here" one. You will be shown everything and your training as well.

I hope things are going well. I know you are getting rolling within the training and there is ONE thing that always tends to confuse people and that is "what is my niche?".

I know, same thing happened to me when I started.

I just wanted to reach out and let you know that I am here if you ever want to run any niche "ideas" by me or you have any questions about finding your niche.

Get back to me when you get the chance! :)

Hi John. I found my way here to WA through a site of yours actually. I'm working my way through everything methodically. I'm a complete novice to all of this. I don't even have a Facebook account. That's how green I am. I have started the Affiliate Bootcamp which I thought would be a good launchpad until I've established where and how to fit into the market place.

Thanks for your messages.

You're welcome Brian. I am happy to answer any question you have if I can (I don't know everything, not sure anyone does). If I don't know the answer I will do my best to point you in the right direction.

I have a cousin that is a cellist. He plays professionally. He was with the Milwaukee Symphony - not sure if he still is. Also, he is a member of a very unique jazz quintet - piano, drums, cello, violin, flute.

What's up Brian!

I just thought I'd not only welcome you, but also help you get started on the right track so that you're not confused with anything like you probably already are.

First off, you'll want to put a pic up (preferably of yourself) and say a little something about you so it can be easier for others to help you, which you can do by clicking on the little square with a question mark up on the right.

Starting out, there are only 2 things you really need to know.

1. People who TAKE ACTION by asking questions and interacting within the community are much more likely to be successful and learn this stuff faster than someone who joins and does nothing.

2. The level 1 certification course (green tab to the left) will explain the process of how to make money online and you should have a pretty solid foundation built by the end of this course as well.

By lesson 4 you should have your first site up and running, which I'm sure you'll find to be an accomplishment on its own.

Click the link below to get started on your first lesson and you'll be on your way. Also don't forget that if you have any questions, just ask as everyone is here to help.

I hope this helps Brian and welcome to the wonderful community here at WA, which I'm sure you're going to love!

- John
