Hi guys.

I'm doing a "pay what you want"-service for dropbox referrals, where you boost your dropbox space to 18GB.

You can read up on it, in the main thread here
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=63089.0

Most buyers pay between 0.7 and 1.1 btc for this, which i'm super excited about.

However, I almost get no requests under 0.5, which could mean there's a lot of people who opt-out their 0.2, 0.1, 0.05 or 0.001 btcs!

I'd like to change that, so here's a shout out!

I'd recommend you use bitmit.net and escrow for your security. Just pledge your price on the order page, after clicking buy.
Let me know what you think.

Shamelessly bumping. I think the karma gods will allow this... once?

Does this not violate their TOS and cause closed accounts?

There's certainly a risk. The moment i hear of anyone getting their accounts closed i'm done with this service. I haven't heard of anyone yet. Also I believe there's some forum posts on the matter from 2010 saying that you'll loose the space you "earned" if they find out - sorry i'm too lazy to dig it up. The problem with banning your account is that any guy on twitter could have picked up your link and started spamming you with referrals without your consent, so you could always plead the innocent card.

I completely understand why some folks feels this is over the border. Hopefully no-one takes offense of these threads.

Feedback welcome.

I've paid someone on this forum (not the OP IIRC) to bump my Dropbox space up to 10GB from 2GB its been a month exactly since I had it done and I still have the 10GB of space I would have just bought the one time bump from Dropbox but they only offer free or a monthly $10 for 50GB option which isn't what I was looking for, their loss IMO. also recently my space got bumped up again to 18GB 0.o so yay I guess don't know why though.

This is really easy to do, just do signup method, referrals and method to get coupon codes.

Good luck with sales though maybe someone will fall for this and buy it.

True anyone can do this, there's a few hurdles you have to get over but it is very possible to do it by hand.

The signup part is easy, no tricks there - not even a captcha (which is key for my script-solution).
Then you'll need the dropbox client, a fresh mac address and cleared dropbox settings.
This is because, before the referral space is awarded, the client of the new user needs to be linked to the new account.
Starting the dropbox client, you're asked to visit a http-link that will connect your client with the account (the link uses  the mac address, and possibly the wan IP) - you visit the link and you're done.

You'll need to do this 32 times, clearing dropbox settings and switching mac address - which is fine to do on your normal machine, but i'd recommend virtual machine clones.

I found 32 times to be like doing it 1 mio. times. Maybe that's just me. Also, coupon codes?

Hellou moredropbox,

At http://bitmit.net/en/trade/i/2019-16gb-extra-dropbox-space/description price is set to 0.99 BTC (= 5.10 $). Can this be changed later on ordering as you are saying to offer "pay what you want"? Too lazy to register yet to bitmit to check it out by myself Grin

Yes, it's not really advertised well, on bitmit, but once you have the order page, with an escrow address, it says in the notes that you can use an "individually agreed upon prize" or something like that. The order page will reflect if you sent more or less than the list price - but it doesn't have any effect on the usual escow dance (you send them, they get confirmed, I send the product, marking it as sent, you confirm delivery and the money are released - however much there is in the escrow address).

Cheers!
