What do you do when someone offers to pay you?
Hey All :-)
Please don't read between the lines on this one, as there are no lines to read :-)
I love Wealthy Affiliate and the Pay it Forward Community, so I would never Self Promote by placing links on my Profile, in Blogs, in Training, in Comments or even via PM for members to purchase or pay for services from me, or even place my Affiliate Links anywhere on this platform.
I have done and will continue to do so, provide free help to all members for all things WA related where I can, via replies to comments, PM's, Blog Posts and also via Training.
However, over the last 3+ months that I have been a member here, I have been asked numerous times to help members on a one-to-one basis, by logging in to their WordPress to complete actions on their behalf, provide telephone advice/support and to even provide remote desktop access to train them in realtime. The members keep on offering to pay me for my time and service.
The rules for WA are very clear, as in, do not communicate outside of the WA Platform, do not Self Promote and do not place Affiliate Links anywhere on the platform.
To date, I have either provided the above help free of charge or I have politely declined advising that it is against the WA Rules and T&C's etc.
I was, therefore, wondering how other more seasoned members have dealt with this. Have/Do you provide services outside of WA to other members? If yes, have you accepted payment from those members?
I don't want to accept payment for services to then be blocked/banned from WA, so I'd be very interested in your thoughts on how to approach this in the future.
Thank you in advance and speak soon,
