I’m not really a PTC (paid-to-click) person, but I’ve been snooping around one or two PTCs of late. Just curious – call it a little side hobby – not really looking to make huge amounts of money from it. I’d be ‘duh’ to expect that when I very well know I can make a whole lot more a lot faster.
I joined Neobux about 2 months ago with the intention of just trying it out for a month (pays up to 2 cents per ad viewed – I mostly got 1 cent clicks with the odd 1.5 cent ad thrown in now and again).
I stayed a bit longer than I intended – 55 days, to be precise, which is a big achievement where I’m concerned. I jumped ship after that – boredom had me gooooood.
I did make a bit of profit though. I invested $5 (to buy & recycle referrals) and got back $6.63. It was actually $6.76 but Neobux skimmed off $0.13 for the privilege of requesting a payment. Good thing, though, was once I requested my money, the payment was in my Paypal account before I could blink.
Now I’m engaged to Clixsense, another PTC!
Clixsense mostly pays 1-2 cents per viewed ad. Apparently, you can sometimes get ads that pay more than 1-2 cents per view, but I’m yet to see any of those though.
I actually joined Clixsense back in May but did nothing with it. Reactivated my account a few weeks ago though.
I decided to upgrade my Clixsense account to premium membership as I wanted access to more ads. As a standard member, I was only getting an average of six 1-cent ads to click on a day, sometimes just two a day. The upgrade costs $10 for the year. Upside: I get to view more ads. Yay! Downside: I was hoping I could pay for it using my Paypal account. But, nope – they don’t accept payments via Paypal. Had to use my debit card. Booooo. Not too too much of a problem – just that I would have preferred to have sourced the upgrade using the money I’d made online.
How Many Ads?
As a standard member, the most ads I got in any one day were 9 and the least was 1. With an upgrade (to premium membership), there are about 500 potential ads to view at once. The amount you can ACTUALLY view boils down to your location. I’m in the UK, so I got about 270 ads when I upgraded. Most of them are worth a cent each (though I’ve come across a couple of 2 cent ones). Time will tell if I see anything higher.
I’m working my way through the ads fairly quickly as I’m curious to find out how many ads I can view after that.
Minimum payout’s $10 which is sent out by cheque. No payments via Paypal. Just cheque. I’m used to receiving a few cheques from outside the UK. That’s how GlobalTestMarket paid me, and ACOP too. Just takes a while, that’s all.
There’s also a processing fee of $3.00. How the hell does it take someone $3.00 to send out a cheque? Am I gonna get a gold-rimmed cheque flown over by an organically-fed Olympic-trained pigeon? Is that what the $3 covers? ‘Cos I could easily settle for an emaciated turtle on crutches if it’d be cheaper.
How Much I’ve Made…
So far, I’ve made $2.10. You can set the minimum payout above $10.00 which is what I plan to do. I’d rather get charged $3.00 on, say, a $30.00 cheque than on a $10 cheque.
Will keep y’all posted on my progress.
Weekend. Good. Have it.
