"Make Money with your WiFi
Foneros can now both connect for free and make a little money by participating in the FON Community. It’s easy. Every time a visitor (non-Fonero) detects your WiFi signal there’s a good chance you can make a bit of “dinero”.
FON will pay you 50% of the net revenue that we get every time a visitor purchases a FON Access Pass through your FON Spot! There’s more. To help you promote your FON Spot, visitors can get 15 minutes of free access to trial the service before start purchasing FON Access passes from you! And we even pay you for this!
FON also gives you the option to personalize your FON Spot and maximize your coverage up to 5 times with our long range antenna, the La Fontenna.
Want to help build a WiFi planet and make a little money while doing it?
There are three easy steps to start making some money with the FON Community (at FON we call this type of user “Bill”):
- Join FON
- Get La Fonera
- Become a Bill in your Userzone and enter your PayPal Account to get paid.
Already a Fonero but not making money yet? Change your profile to “Bill” and see how much money you’re making in your User Zone. Remember, Foneros can now do both: roam for free and make some money!"
Now, a member on the Fon boards posted what he made and then El Fon Blog took the time to analyze how much the poster made, how much Fon took, and how much is given to paypal, taxes, etc. Now this person (from the UK) ended up making only 36% instead of the 50% that they should have. Unfortunately there is still is a bunch of missing information and stuff that Fon will never disclose.
