Here are some of our most Frequently Asked Questions:

What in the world is ePIPO all about?
ePIPO is all about having fun while making some money. ePIPO will pay its Surf Partners 60 points (that equates to 60 cents) per hour to simply surf the web. That's right, we actually pay you to surf the web. In return, all you do is run the ePIPO Surf Window on your computer, and occasionally glance at the ads that are displayed (if you don't glance periodically, we promise we won't tell anyone). The Surf Window is not much bigger than a typical banner advertisement, and you can move it around anywhere on your computer screen. We don't want to interrupt how you surf, or where you surf, we just want to provide you with advertising that is relevant to you. And, in the meantime, you get to make money...not a bad deal.  To put it simply, ePIPO is the first company in the Permission-Based, Viral-Marketing space.

Can't I make more than just $.60 per hour?
Absolutely, you can sign up other Surf Partners, and then earn 10 points (again, follow along, that equates to 10 cents) per hour for anytime that they surf the web, and can also earn 10 points per hour for anyone they sign up. That works up to 5 levels (quick, do the math in your head) so you can see that your potential for earning money can grow rather fast. In fact, if you sign up two people, who then sign up two people, etc. down to five levels, you will have 62 surf partners beneath you (figuratively speaking, that is). If each of those people surfs just an hour per day, you will earn over $200 per month. Not bad for just being a mouse potato. But don't just stop at signing up 2 people; you can do better than that.

Is this a pyramid scheme?
Yeah, that's exactly what it is. First we invite you over to our house for dinner, then we pull out a big white board and start drawing circles on it, all the while you are trapped in our house...NO! It's nothing like a pyramid scheme, what kind of a dumb question is that? Actually, it isn't that bad of a question. The coolest thing about ePIPO is that it doesn't change anything that you already do. You don't have to visit different sites, you don't have to use a different browser, you don't have to spend any money or buy anything and you don't have to attend meetings every Tuesday night. It's just a cool little application that sits on your computer, counting your money as you surf the web...that's all.

Is this going to cost me anything?
Nope, not a dime. You can cancel at any time, and you can open and close the ePIPO Surf Window whenever you want. If you want to surf the web without the Surf Window visible, just close it. You won't be earning any money, but we promise, there are no strings attached.

Okay, I like what I hear so far. But what the heck does ePIPO stand for?
I'm glad you finally asked. ePIPO is taken from the Greek word epipolos, which means "companion." If you want to know the truth, it's a cool sounding word, and we thought the whole Greek connection would make us sound smarter to our friends. (It isn't working so far.)

Now, can you explain to me how to pronounce ePIPO?
It's a cool word, but you have to pronounce it right.  It is pronounced /ee'pipp'oe/    E - as in e-mail.  PIP - Think Gladys Knight.  O - As in, "oh my gosh."  That's it, ePIPO.    Got it?

Do you have any limitations on what I can make?
Yeah, we promise that you won't become as rich as Bill Gates by using ePIPO. Actually, we do have three different limitations:

  1. We limit the total amount of paid hours one person can accrue to 50 hours per month (this is really just to protect us against fraud).
  2. We will pay you for people referred by you, only up to the amount of hours that you have accrued for the month. So if your friend, who was referred by you, surfs for 20 hours in a month, but you only surf for 15 hours, you will only be paid for 15 hours for your own surf time, and 15 hours for your friend's surf time (but, your friend will be paid for their entire 20 hours). We hope that made sense.
  3. Finally, we absolutely require that you don't send unsolicited emails, or "spam." Doing so is immediate grounds for termination of your ePIPO Partnership.

That's it, no other limitations. It's really pretty simple.

How do I actually get my money?
As soon as you acquire 2000 points (come on now, follow along at home, that equates to $20), you can come and cash in your points. Do that by coming to the Current ePIPO Customers area, and simply cash them in. You will get a check within 30 days (probably a lot sooner, but we don't want to promise anything that we aren't sure we can fulfill). If you want to save up your points, you are more than welcome to do that as well. In the near future you will also be able to use your points for major discounts on merchandise or for a free computer or free Internet access. More to come on that subject.

How does ePIPO use the information they collect from me?
ePIPO's primary goal in collecting personal information is to provide you with a customized experience. This includes displaying for you (in the ePIPO Surf Window) advertising that is relevant to you. In other words, if you are a 27 year-old, software programmer, we won't be showing you a lot of ads for Depends under-garments (unless, of course, you specifically request us to). By knowing a little bit of information about you, ePIPO is able to bring more appropriate product solicitations to your attention.

In our role of delivering advertisements, ePIPO serves as the middleman. Advertisers give us an advertisement and tell us the type of audience they want to reach, for example, females between 25 and 35. ePIPO then delivers the advertisement to Surf Partners meeting that criteria. In this process, the advertiser never has access to individual account information. Only ePIPO has access to individual information.

We won't be selling your information to outside vendors, and we certainly won't be sending unsolicited emails to you.

What kind of computer and browser can I run ePIPO on?
Our ePIPO Surf Window is a stand-alone application, so it will run on any Windows based computer. We also support both Internet Explorer and Netscape Navigator versions 3 and newer. This should include about 90% of those on the Internet today. For the other 10%, we recommend that you update your browser.

What if I want to buy advertising space on the ePIPO network?
If you are an advertiser, and want to investigate an advertising partnership with ePIPO, check out our Advertisers page or just e-mail us at: ads@epipo.com.

Will ePIPO be available outside of the US?
Yes, international users can certainly join, but we will be paying in US dollars. We will also be rolling the Surf Window out to US residents first, but will roll out the Surf Window to international users shortly thereafter.  We look forward to all of our non-US friends joining us.

How do I get started?
Click here to get started. This form will allow you to put yourself in line to get access to the ePIPO Surf Window. We are currently rolling out the ePIPO Surf Window application.  It is being rolled out on a first-come, first-served basis, beginning with our US partners. Our Canadian, Australian, and UK partners will be next, and the rest of the World will be immediately following.  Meaning that the sooner you sign up, the sooner you will be able to start making money. We wish we could deliver the application to everyone tomorrow.  We will notify you via e-mail when you can come and download the ePIPO Surf Window. It is incredibly easy to install (if you are smart enough to fill out the form, you are qualified to install our program), and once installed you are ready to start making money. The Surf Window will deliver you periodic advertisements, and will also count your money for you as you surf the web.
