In July, 2020, Welly Mulia noticed he was sending commissions to a new affiliate. The affiliate owned birdsend.com and was redirecting traffic to his affiliate link.

Welly owned the domain birdsend.co. 3 months earlier, Welly had enquired about buying a domain from a broker. At that point, it was $1,600. Welly ended up buying the domain for $3,400 by the end of the year.

By June, 2021, the previous domain owner had earned $1’900 in commissions – and would continue to earn commissions from past sales.

Note: Check the terms and conditions when you sign up for an affiliate program. Many programs don’t allow for this technique.
