Api.paltip.com is a server of PalTip, which is a platform that allows computer users to earn money by recommending online products. In order to use paltip.com, the computer user submits the link of the product that he/she wants to recommend and PalTip creates an instant link that can be shared with other people on various social networking websites, including Facebook and Twitter. When anyone clicks on the link and purchases the recommended product, the user, who has to create a PalTip account beforehand, earns a commission.

Moreover, a pop-up bar at the top of the web page is displayed. If you have a browser plug-in which is associated with api.paltip.com, it is very likely that it works only on Google Chrome.
