PayPal as preferred Payment in GDI WS Domains

Global Domains International Inc provides you with the option to pay through PayPal and even received your commissions to PayPal. This is very convenient for online marketers to sign up and earn online income with GDI since PayPal is widely used and accepted online. PayPal is owned by eBay and widely used all over the world by eBay buyers and online marketers. It is Free to sign up an account with PayPal, just go to to sign up a Free account.

To use your PayPal account, you just need to connect it with your credit card by entering your valid credit card details into your paypal account. Once entered, you can use PayPal to pay for many things online, send money etc without ever giving any credit card information to the seller.

For those who do not have a credit card to sign up with GDI

You may sign up for a PayPal account and top up your paypal account via Bank Transfer (only applicable for some countries that PayPal has alliance with). PayPal allows you to Top Up money via Bank transfer for some countries. Look for a “Top Up” menu when you log into your PayPal account and you can find the instructions there.

If you have a SOLO or Maestro bank card, you may enter it to your PayPal account and use PayPal as payment to GDI services.

Or you may request your family or friends with PayPal account to “send money” to your PayPal account and you can arrange payment with them in your own way.

Other option if you do not have a credit card to sign up with GDI is to request the permission of your family members to use their credit card or paypal account to sign up with GDI then arrange payment to them in  your own way. Of course, you must have their permission to do so, if not your account may be suspended anyway when transactions are denied.

For International Affiliates use PayPal as Preferred Commissions

Are you living in countries with poor postal and mailing system and is worried about cheques reaching your home? Even though GDI will send checks / cheques payment to anywhere around the world to pay commissions, some may have doubts about the postal system in their country, some afraid that the cheques will get lost on route or some afraid that the cheques cannot be banked in due to banking requirements etc. Or you just cant wait to get your cheques and worried that it may take forever to reach your home.

Now, you dont have to worry about this since you can receive your GDI commissions direct to your PayPal account without delay.

How to Cancel GDI

How to Cancel Your Global Domains International Membership

I decided to write this post on showing you the way to cancel your GDI not because GDI does not work but only because things may not work out for everyone and you should easily cancel your membership at any time.

There are two reasons for this post:

global domains international ws

First Reason: Reluctant to Try out Unsure if You can Actually Cancel

You get 7 days Free Trial to test out GDI, maybe you feel it does not work for you and you would like to cancel it. Since GDI asked for your credit card upfront, you are not sure if you can actually cancel it and reluctant to take this opportunity to try GDI.

Many have asked the question about the 7 day Free Trial:

The Question:

Since it is a Free trial, why do I have to sign up with a credit card?

The Answer:

As it is for any business, GDI needs to make sure you are actually serious enough to try out the system. If anybody is not serious enough to even sign up with a credit card, then no business owners will waste their time to prepare the system for him/her to try out. Since you will be getting a domain name and hosting, GDI will incur these charges and administration time.

It is like any money back guarantee product offers but GDI went further to not even charge your credit card until the 7th day so neither of you need to process any REFUNDS.

And here’s the good news. You CAN safely try GDI out for 7 days and cancel it before the 7th day easily if you feel it is not right for you and you will not be charged or have to request for a refund. I will show you an easy way.

Second Reason: Things Dont Work out and You want to Cancel

If GDI dont really work out for you, then I dont want to waste any of your time and money too! $10 may not be much for me ( in fact I dont even have to pay it ) BUT it may be a lot to some people and I dont want you to drag on paying the monthly fee if GDI does not work out for you.

If you have signed up GDI to fully utilize the system and the facility provided such as hosting, domain and at the same time benefiting from the money making opportunity, then you will not find any reasons for you to cancel GDI since you are already benefiting from the services.

That is why I encourage you to use GDI’s services to build you own personal website with your domain name and add links out to your GDI websites provided.

With this way, even if you are not successful at marketing GDI, at least you have used the services provided and is not wasting your money.


You can call GDI at anytime to cancel your membership. All the contact information can be found in your members area, log into your members area to contact GDI Support.

Invalid Phone Numbers from GDI

Friday, May 2nd, 2008

Are you receiving Emails from your uplines with Invalid Phone Numbers?

gdiIf you are a new GDI member or have recently signed up to Global Domains International. You many have received introduction welcome emails from your uplines.

This is a new feature from GDI. It is an automatic email from Global Domains International sending welcome ontroduction emails to new downlines from their uplines including the phone numbers of the sender (upline).

These phone numbers are the phone numbers we registered GDI with and they are real phone numbers. Only that most downlines simply assume that they are local numbers. They pick up the phone and make the call to their uplines and most often get to the wrong person.

Since Global Domains International an online global business, uplines can be from any countries around the world and register their international phone numbers when they sign up. Hence you may need to add an international dialing codes at the front of these numbers. i.e +44217872682.

So I would suggest checking the country of origin of your uplines before you make a call and get disappointed.

If you need support or help, email your uplines which has no cost to you. You can also get much help and ideas from the GDI forum provided. You can access this private forum from your members area.

There are many good tips on building your GDI website to marketing your GDI business.

How to avoid Scam – GDI not Scam
There are many concerns of scams online. A quick keyword research shows about 7000 search on “scams” every month in yahoo and ” Global Domains International Scam ” is one of the searches. Personally, I havent been scammed online before and I have no worries about that since the major companies online and internet marketers uses third party payment processors such as clickbank, paydotcom, 2 checkout and paypal. If they are using any of these 4 payment processors, you should not be worried about purchasing anything from them. ( There are also several other payment processors such as CCBill etc. but these 4 are the major ones. )

Why? These third party payment processors offer customers at least 30 days money back guarantee (some up to 8 weeks money back guarantee) for any products selling through the use their services hence if you found that the product you just purchased was not as described by the seller or if the seller is a scam – scammer, then you have every right to request for a refund and they will comply promptly.

Major companies including Global Domains International will have their own mechant account which accepts credit cards payment direct to their account. However, from the popularity of using Paypal as a standard payment system. GDI has also started to accept Paypal as a payment form.

Now you can be assured that Global Domains International is not a scam company. Remember GDI was listed as No. 37 fastest growing company in Inc magazine. Global Domains International is also a members of the DSA – Direct Selling Association.

And do not forget GDI comes with a 7 days Free trial for you to test out their system with no obligations to continue. If you didnt like what you see, simply cancel before the 7th day and your credit card or paypal account will not be charged.

Global Domains International Scam

Global Domains International Scam or Money Making Opportunities?

Global Domains International inc also known as GDI has exclusive license agreement to distribute the dot WS domains (.WS) which is their main offer to customers.

But GDI has actually developed a Multi Level Marketing Strategy to distribute and market these domains. The strategy has worked well which offers huge potential incomes to members with minimum work and technical knowledge of the internet.

The GDI system actually combines multi – level – marketing (network marketing) with internet marketing which I think is pure genius. Robert Allen of “Multiple Streams of Income” actually stated in his book that “network marketing” and “internet marketing” are two profitable and easy streams of income. Now Global Domains International actually combined these two streams into one allowing members to participate in network marketing with internet marketing on complete automation.

The beauty of the GDI system is that there is actually no selling on your part. The video presentations they provided are pursuasive enough, in other words, the videos will actually sell for you. All you need to do is just sending the emails provided to close friends, relatives, or even in forums to direct people to watch the videos.

And best thing of all, it is the cheapest network marketing and internet marketing business venture you can ever find with potential highest return on investment. You can check out using the calculator provided in the main GDI website. According to calculations, if you can find 5 people and the 5 people in turn finds 5 people, you have a potential earnings of $3.905 per month! Now that’s the power of network marketing and I am sure you will agree that with an investment of only $10 a month, you will never find another income opportunity with this kind of low risk and high returns.

Now, will the product sells? We know that the internet has become an important part of our lives, and I cant stress enough that in time (maximum 5 years from now) we all need a domain name, a website and a personal email address. With dot coms all running out, the only good alternative is dot WS (WS stands for website). The videos explain really well.

Ok, so is Global Domains International a Scam?

Would you call Amway, Nu Skin and all the multi level companies out there a scam? These companies including Global Domains International are built on the same business model – network marketing. The only difference of GDI is that it is cheaper and easier to start with as the system are all on automation over the internet. When you pay your subscription of $10 a month to GDI, you also get a domain name, a website, site builder, email addresses not to mention the income opportunity system and the advance email systems they provide you to manage your downlines.

Some, may argue that you can get domains at $8.95 a year and hosting for $3.95 a month. But do not forget that you are not provided with a residual income building opportunity that pays you every month. Hey, you may also wonder, GDI only pays $1 per signups, that’s really too little for your effort, but dont forget you are paid 5 levels! Try out the potential income with the calculator provided at the bottom page of GDI main website You only need 10 signups in any of the 5 levels to break even!

Oh by the way, you are also given 4 ready made websites with your name already embedded to start your GDI business. How easy is that! You dont even need to learn a single HTML to start with! Check out the four websites provided:

1. Global Domain International Main Website

2. Freedom Website

3. My WS website – Cool Video Presentation

4. DVD Presentation

In the members area, you can check out your uplines and downlines, your earnings and top earners!

In conclusion, is Global Domain International Scam?


One word of advice though, like every domain companies, GDI will try to upsell you more domains at $10 each which you do not need as you can domains as cheap as $6.95. Just pay $10 for the system and you should do fine.
You have to watch the really cool video and see for yourself, you are also entitled to a 7 day FREE Trial!

Global Domain Name Registration – GDI Tips

Wednesday, October 10th, 2007

Global Domain Name RegistrationGDI Tips – Dont buy more than 1 domain at Global Domains International

This is important, like any other domain companies, GDI will try to sell you more domains when you sign up for your GDI system. I am here to remind you not to buy more than one from Global Domains International. Because all you need is just one domain for your GDI income building system.

Why dont buy more domains from GDI? As GDI charges you $10 per month for each additional domains you purchase from them. This is expensive if you just need a domain for other uses. If you need them you can get domains from $6.95 or $8.95 per year.

You only need the one domain to make use of the system. GDI charges $10 per month for one domain that comes with the network marketing system, 4 websites for you to use with your name and links embedded (you can see them on the right bar) and a hosting account for you to build your own website. So you dont need additional domains as you dont need 2 systems.

To be honest, we actually will receive commissions too for every domains that our downlines purchased. But that wouldnt be fair hence I am telling you upfront. GDI may not be happy that I disclose this to you here. But I prefer to be honest with my downlines.

Does that mean GDI is a scam? No, every domain hosting companies will try to upsell domains to buyers. If you did not shop around, some companies sell domains for $150 a year! Companies are allowed to price their domains as they wish just like the price of a can of coke can be different in different stores.
