You Can Make Money By Offering Free Documents
That sounds kind of funny, doesn’t it? It’s true, there is more than one way to make money on Docstock.com. There is also the possibility of offering free documents for people to download and use and making money from the ads. The trick is to sign up for your own Google Adsense account and be willing to split the profits with Docstock 50/50. They call the program DocCash. Who doesn’t like the idea of passive income though?
You Can Keep Visitors On Your Site By Embedding Documents

Docstoc.com offers you the ability to embed documents on your site.

Yeah, But What Does Docstoc.com Cost To Use?
After scouring the FAQ for just that question, I found an answer. Apparently Docstoc.com is free to use. Exciting, right? There are obviously some documents that are premium and you need to purchase them. There’s also a subscription service enabling you to access thousands of premium documents. Otherwise, the services are free.
